Michelle Obama and her Let's Move! campaign aimed at promoting healthy habits among children and teenagers have recently faced some ironic twists. It appears that her own daughters may not have fully embraced the message. Cue the images of Malia Obama spotted with a cigarette outside a convenience store—seemingly not aligned with the principles of healthy living.
Malia has been observed smoking on multiple occasions. Recall back in 2016 when she was photographed smoking what appeared to be a joint at a music festival. It seems that prioritizing a healthy lifestyle may not be her top concern. Is this an instance of preaching one thing while doing another, Mrs. Obama?
‘Let the Girl Live Her Life’: Fans Rush to the Defense of Malia Obama After She Gets Ripped for Smoking https://t.co/o3xGuFA2A7 via @Yahoo @RedskinYankee If she wants to ruin her health it's up to her..To me women that smoke aren't sexy at all. Smell like an ashtray..

And it's not just Malia who has been caught in such situations. Sasha Obama, the other daughter of the Obamas, was also seen smoking a cigarette after a Labor Day party in Los Angeles. As the saying goes, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Perhaps paying closer attention to their mother's Let's Move! campaign would have been beneficial instead of indulging in smoking.
What's particularly intriguing is the growing speculation that Michelle Obama herself might be contemplating a presidential run. Can you imagine that? The same Michelle Obama who seemingly struggled to influence her daughters to adopt a healthy lifestyle may potentially make decisions for the entire nation? It's a disconcerting thought.
Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz appears to share this concern. He recently discussed the possibility of Michelle Obama running for president on his podcast and described it as "dangerous" for Republicans. He makes a valid point. We don't need someone in the White House who cannot even persuade their own family to follow their guidance.
While Barack Obama has avoided addressing questions about his wife's political aspirations, it's important to note that Michelle has consistently denied any interest in pursuing public office. However, in the world of politics, minds can change, and the Obamas have been known to surprise us. Let's hope and pray that the idea of Michelle Obama running for president remains nothing more than speculation. The White House doesn't need any more smoking-related issues.
