In case you haven’t heard, Malia Obama has been accepted to Harvard. She is once again proving to the world she is a smart and aspiring young woman, following her father’s footsteps.
Once the good news were reported at Fox News, conservative Republicans lost their minds and responded with such brutality that Fox had to shut down the comments section on the article.
Malia decided to attend Harvard after visiting several colleges, ultimately deciding to follow the footsteps of her father and attend Harvard. She has also announced that she will take a year off school like many young people choose to do before going to college.
As the child of a President, Malia was obviously at an advantage when it came to choosing a college. Before her, many presidential children attended prestigious colleges like Yale (Barbara Pierce Bush), Radcliffe (Caroline Kennedy) and Stanford (Chelsea Clinton). Twenty-three presidential children attended Harvard. Malia is definitely in good company.
Obama said at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday that his family plans to stay in Washington for two years after his presidency ends so that their youngest daughter, Sasha, can finish high school.
