Mrs. Obama accused of abusing her authority by protesting Malia’s picture

TMZ is reporting that First Daughter #1, Malia Obama was out and about in Los Angeles on a Monday night. She was sighted at one of the city’s better-known restaurants, which also happens to be a favorite haunt for celebrities as well as the paparazzi that are often seen hovering about them.

Malia’s presence in LA is due to the fact that she is spending the summer in the city working as an intern on the set of Halle Berry’s new movie “Extant“. This means that the paparazzi that weren’t already waiting for her at Gjelina, the famous restaurant in Venice, would have surely followed her there.

Eventually, one of the paparazzi decided that he wanted to take pictures of Malia and her entourage of friends and started clicking away as they were leaving the restaurant.

Once he had his picture he didn’t take time in selling it to AKM-GSI, a media distribution agency. Soon the picture was up on their site and available for anyone who wanted to make a purchase.

TMZ reports that a couple of hours after the image was posted, AKM-GSI received a phone call from the First Lady’s office asking if they could please have the photo removed from their site. Mrs. Obama’s staff told the agency that the family had secured promises from several media outlets not to photograph either Sasha or Malia when they weren’t in the presence of their father, President Obama.

AKM-GSI agreed to have the photo removed from their site and did so. The agency then sent out an email to other media outlets with a subject line that read: “URGENT SET KILL NOTICE”.

The email read: “Please delete the set of Malia Obama from your archive. The set was sent around earlier today. We cannot distribute the set.”

Now, the question everyone is asking is if this was all abuse of office or if it is a matter of seeing a mother in action, making sure that her children are as protected as possible. What do you think? Is it not fair game to expect that photogs would want to take a picture of the president’s daughter?

    No I see a mother educated to protect her child/children and not get eaten up by the wolves

    Nope. As a mother she has the right for her children NOT to be exploited in any way. If you want something…..ask. don’t assume that public people are public use! No matter who they are.

    No. She did it the right way. She asked and AKM-GSI respectfully responded.

    Stan I agree. She handled it the way. It’s not an abuse of power.

    No harm, no foul. Why is this a story ?

  6. Oh Really?

    The story will be FAUX news taking it and running a story that will be so idiotic and will have to retract any stupid statements they make the next day. By then, the Faux followers will have had their field day.

    Isn’t this an issue of national security?! Why would you want to advertise where ANY first daughter would be? Haven’t these people a clue on how to protect our nation?! Photos like these that seem harmless make us very vulnerable as a country.

    Not sure if other mothers could have done the same thing without the power of the first lady. The abuse was probably implied, but not used. TMZ knew better than to say no.

    Her kids, her rules. She said if they’re with their dad it’s fair game, not when they’re doing private things. Let them have as normal a life as possible.

    I see this as a mother protecting her children, and I am quite sure that she was not the first to do that.

    Good job, I applaud our First Lady. A good mother protecting her children
    The Security should have stopped them. They are not on their job.

    I care Nicky. Malia did not run for office and is a child not a news piece and in todays world of kidnap of girls, torture of children , killing of children around the world, it matters. You obviously have no children

    Protect your children. Mrs. Obama! By any means necessary, protect your right to privacy for your children!

    Please people, let’s try to be actual (For Real).

    The only reason anyone would complain about Mrs. Obama complaining, is because they feel only Caucasians have the right to speak up. It honestly tickles me that our country actually sees the exceptional job our president is doing, and it makes them mad. But the issue of his race always comes up. Not to say they mention it, but to say they always include it in their assessments of his rating, or his efforts to keep improving our country. They have also attempted to show negative behavior from Mrs. Obama. She has a platform as the First Lady, as a citizen of our country, as a mother and as an American intellectual. Fight on first family. God put you where you are, and shall continue protecting you until you leave public office. P.S. I understand it pisses media off they haven’t been able to bring up any scandal on the first family. And they never shall. Now that doesn’t say they won’t continue to make things up. People like the racist Koch brothers are willing to pay millions for attempts. You may fight God, but you shall never beat him, or his chosen people.
