What's It Like Going To Prom As The President's Kid? Michelle Obama Recalls Malia's Prom Without The Secret Service
November 13, 2018
Being the U.S. President's kid isn't easy. No matter how much you try to be 'plain and simple', your private life will always be in the spotlight.
In 2016, the former POTUS shared that his older daughter, Malia, then 16, attended her school prom for the first time. In the same breath, Obama conceded that dating issues would be a huge problem for her due to the Secret Service being around 24/7.
Although prom traditions comprise going to the party with the opposite sex, the Obamas weren't sure it would be a brilliant idea for Malia.
Dating, I think, will be an issue because I have men with guns surrounding them at all times, which I’m perfectly happy with, but they may feel differently about it.
