Notorious stalker arrested after proposing to Obama’s daughter

A man, who is said to be notorious for stalking former United States Barack Obama’s first born daughter Malia, has been arrested for proposing to former US first daughter.

The man was taken into custody by Secret Service agents for interrupting Malia’s day Weinstein Company in Manhattan – where she is an intern – with the marriage proposal.

The man identified as Jair Nilton has a history of harassing the former first daughter on multiple occasions, including begging her to marry him.

In one instant, Cardoso reportedly asked Obama to marry him after showing up at an office where she was completing an internship Tribeca.

The 30 year old man was detained after he showed up on April 10 at the Weinstein Company offices in Manhattan.


The man held a sign up against an office window that read, “Will you marry me?”.

Sources told the The New York Daily News that the Secret Service also stopped Cardoso when he tried to follow Obama out of a building in the West Village, where she had another internship.

The agents reportedly recognized the man and told him to leave the former first daughter alone.

According to the report, the Secret Service then went to Cardoso’s Brooklyn apartment the following day in order to interview him.

They concluded Cardoso suffered from psychiatric issues and escorted him to a Brooklyn hospital for a medical evaluation.

Sources told the publication that the Secret Service reported Cardoso to the police on Tuesday.
