What is Malia Obama smoking? – VIDEO

There was collective heartbreak after international blogs and tabloids published a video of the daughter of US President Barack Obama smoking bhang at a music festival in Chicago.

In the video clip that was posted by Radar Online, and which has gone viral, Malia can be seen smoking something that resembles weed.

The firstborn child of President Obama can be seen in the background puffing away as a teenage girl in the foreground of the video dances while sticking her tongue out.

Nobody has confirmed what she was smoking, although an eyewitness claimed that Obama was smoking bhang, according to Radar Online.

The story has also been carried by the UK’s Sun and Mirror tabloid newspapers.

Malia sparked some controversy in July after she skipped Hillary Clinton’s historic speech at the Democratic National Convention to attend Lollapalooza festival.


Her father President Barack Obama has previously confessed to experimenting with the recreational drug, saying: “I’ve told my daughters I think it’s a bad idea, a waste of time, not very healthy.”

Her commander-in-chief dad admitted in his memoir Sins of my Father to smoking pot and using “a little blow” in high school and college.

Malia, who is a year off after high school and will attend Harvard University in 2017, was in July in another video caught dancing seductively and twerking another music festival.

In October 2015 and still in high school, Maila was caught on Snapchat playing beer pong and drinking underage. She was on a college tour at Brown University, and was getting the full college experience.

After a few days the University apologised to Malia for posting the pictures.

An editorial titled, “Sorry, Malia Obama,” was published in The Brown Daily Herald, and included a detailed apology to the First Daughter on behalf of the school’s students.
