In news that probably has Bristol Palin loading her shotgun in preparation for the uprising, Malia Obama will be working for Lena Dunham this summer on the set of Girls.

The Prez needn’t worry, however, as Malia will just be an intern and thus, will not be forced to make close contact with any sweaty hipsters, or participate in any of the activities that keep Brian Williams up nights.

This actually Malia’s second low or no-paying showbiz gig. Last summer, she interned on the Halle Berry series, Extant.

Malia turns 17 on Saturday (Yes, she was born on the 4th of July), so hopefully she won’t be present when any of the show’s notoriously racy scenes are being filmed.

Even so, there’s sure to be some backlash from those who already believe the Obamas are a coterie of secret Muslims intent on turning the US into a steaming moral cesspool. 

Prepare yourself for long-winded think-pieces about how Barack and Michelle’s lack of concern for the virtue of their own daughters is a sure sign of blah, blah, blah.

Worse, you can expect some idiot to start jokes about the need to keep young girls away from Dunham. Derp!

Maybe we’re wrong, and this story will just be widely ignored by the mainstream press.

Sadly, in 2015, we expect a lot of people will see the president’s teenage daughter taking an internship as an opportunity to pounce.
