Malia & Sasha Obama Had One Big Problem Dating in the White House

I’ve always considered “politician offspring love interest” to be egregiously underrated as a film trope. (See: Essential classics à la My Date with the President’s Daughter, First Daughter, and more.) But where are the 2021 politician child love stories?! Former president Barack Obama’s daughters Malia and Sasha Obama have long attracted our attention growing up as teens in the White House with the potential to live out an epic love story like this all on their own — but the latest revelations about their time dating with the President as their dad reminds me that what’s funny in film might actually kind of suck in real life.
