“Malia Obama ‘attends wild party in Martha’s Vineyard and is rushed out by the Secret Service as cops shut it down.'”
So reads a headline in the British paper The Daily Mail. You won’t see much of this covered in our media.
Khaleda Rahman reports:
Malia Obama was reportedly a guest at a wild party on Martha’s Vineyard that police ended up coming to break up last week.
The 18-year-old is with parents President Barack Obama, first lady Michelle and sister Sasha on their final vacation as First Family on the Massachusetts island.
Malia went to the party at the private home in West Tisbury near the presidential summer retreat, the Boston Herald reported, but was escorted home right as officers responded to a noise complaint.
West Tisbury police declined to confirm if the first daughter was one of the partygoers ushered out of the bash, citing ‘national security’ to the newspaper.
They did elaborate that they ‘responded to a noise complaint, like we do numerous times this time of year.
‘We told them to go home and they did.’
It’s not the first instance of Malia making the most of her gap year before starting at Harvard University in the fall of 2017.
Earlier this month, she was pictured taking a drag of what appeared to be a marijuana cigarette at the Lollapalooza concert in Chicago.
Like father, like daughter, it seems, as Obama himself has admitted to smoking the drug in his autobiography.
And it’s not just Malia who enjoys a night out while on vacation, Obama has reportedly hit the town four nights in a row.
On Sunday, the president assembled his security and press entourage to go out at nearly 11 pm.
That day, he played golf for about five hours before dismissing the small group of reporters who accompany the president in public.
They were told to reassemble at 8:15 pm, but Obama’s motorcade rolled down the dirt driveway of his secluded rental in Chilmark, on the island’s western tip, almost two-and-a-half hours later.
The motorcade later pulled up to Lola’s in Oak Bluffs, on the other side of the island.
The whole family joined friends for a ‘social event’ at the Southern seafood restaurant, the White House said.
They socialized for about an hour before returning to their rented home just before 1 am on Monday.
The White House says Obama is just trying to get the most out of the time he is spending here with family and friends, before a busy fall crammed with foreign and domestic travel.

Ask yourselves what the media would have done were it the Bush twins doing this.
