On Friday, two first daughters came to one of their own's defense after a video of Malia Obama, daughter of former President Barack Obama, appeared to show her attempting to blow smoke rings.
“She is a young adult and private citizen, and should be OFF limits,” Ivanka Trump, President Donald Trump's daughter, tweeted Friday:
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.

Chelsea Clinton, daughter of former President Bill Clinton, similarly admonished media outlets for using Obama as “clickbait”:
Malia Obama’s private life, as a young woman, a college student, a private citizen, should not be your clickbait. Be better.

Conservative outlet The Daily Caller tweeted a link to its story about Obama on Thursday:

Others on Twitter criticized the Caller for running the story:
WATCH: The Daily Caller has nothing better to do than hassle a college student

@DailyCaller proving themselves (yet again) to e staffed by small-minded dopes in harassing a college kid on Thanksgiving. No surprise.

As the Caller noted, Malia is 19 years old and attends Harvard University. It's unclear where the video took place, but Obama seemed to be in a bathroom.
