Ma'am, are you there? I have to ask you something privately, on DM. Just tween us. Because you are a mom of young uns, I am guessing you are not currently there. But will send anyway.

There has to be a slim chance it is at least partially based on a semi-truth.

If this is the truth, Time don't look so good here. That designation should not be dependent on cooperation.

Millions of people smoke. It's probably vape, anyway. It's hardly a sin or an embarrassment or anything, really.

Hey B. Do you happen to have a contact for Ron Rubin, the writer? Has done pieces for The Forward, I think.

Okay, fine. BUT WHAT IS THE ALLEGED F-up? Theoretically. They are on a high horse, and seem to be supporting each other, and I have no idea what Malia even theoreticlaly did wrong.

But there is absolutely nothing suggesting it was pot! It's probably vape!

Sigh. I am seriously not being understood. Can someone who is criticizing Malia Obama explain what is wrong with a 19 yo blowing smoke rings? I won't make fun of you! What is the theory behind your outrage?

OK, I am not making this clear enough. It was not a rhetorical question. I am seriously asking what point the right is TRYING to make, even hypocritically, in objecting to smoke rings.

What I am asking is, even allowing for political hypocrisy & phony outrage, what is the THEORETICAL problem with a 19 yo blowing smoke rings?
