It’s safe to say the Obamas were the most beloved family in the White House since the Kennedy family, and it’s been a rough year since they’ve left (OK — that’s an understatement). It’s understandable that folks are having a hard time dealing with both the new administration and the new first family, but that doesn’t mean that the lives of the Obamas — especially the Obama children — should be tabloid fodder. Unfortunately, however, some can’t stop themselves, especially when it comes to Malia, and both Chelsea Clinton and Ivanka Trump have commented on a recent breach of her privacy.

After a video of the older Obama daughter surfaced last week showing her allegedly blowing smoke rings, it quickly went viral, and people everywhere had something to say about the story. Past and present first daughters Ivanka Trump and Chelsea Clinton jumped in to talk about the situation, and you may be surprised at what Ivanka Trump has to say, given the history between the Trumps and the Obamas.
Malia Obama should be allowed the same privacy as her school aged peers. She is a young adult and private citizen, and should be OFF limits.

Malia Obama’s private life, as a young woman, a college student, a private citizen, should not be your clickbait. Be better.
— Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) November 24, 2017
Clinton said in a tweet, “Malia Obama’s private life, as a young woman, a college student, a private citizen, should not be your clickbait. Be better.” Trump echoed these sentiments, saying, “Malia Obama should be allowed the same privacy as her school aged peers. She is a young adult and private citizen, and should be OFF limits.”
It’s also worth noting that Chelsea Clinton has spoken up on Twitter before about the privacy of first kids, saying that everyone should leave Barron Trump alone. While there are plenty of policy differences between these three politically-minded families, it seems there’s one thing they all agree on — the kids are totally off limits.
