Chelsea Clinton leapt to the defense of Malia Obama after a "loathsome," unverified report that alleges the FBI wants to interview former President Barack Obama's eldest daughter.
"Loathsome. Just loathsome. Please leave Malia alone to lead her own life & keep her out of your (shameful) agenda!" Clinton wrote on Twitter Tuesday.
Clinton, the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, expressed her concern following the publication of a Globe magazine cover story titled, "Malia Obama: Questioned in FBI Probe!"
The headline, however, does not match the article inside.
The story — unverified by the Washington Examiner -- only claims that “agents want to grill Malia in a hush-hush deposition” as part of an investigation into accusations leveled at Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein regarding sexual misconduct, according to progressive media aggregate ShareBlue.com.
Obama interned for the Weinstein Company before attending Harvard University in 2017.
The tabloid magazine is owned by David Pecker, who is also responsible for the National Enquirer.
The Enquirer endorsed President Trump ahead of the 2016 election. It also ran an unfounded story that Sen. Ted Cruz's father, Rafael Cruz, knew and worked with John F. Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, accusations that the younger Cruz has vehemently denied.
This is not the first time Clinton has defended a first child.
She blasted an opinion piece by the Daily Caller in August that called for President Trump's son Barron to "dress the part" of being first son.
"It's high time the media & everyone leave Barron Trump alone & let him have the private childhood he deserves," Clinton tweeted in August.
