Former first daughter Malia Obama was pictured in New York City with her rumored boyfriend, and the internet responded swiftly.
Malia Obama was seen with Rory Farquharson, the man whom she's been rumored to be seeing, walking around the streets of New York following speculation that the two were in a relationship. The Harvard couple, Celebrity Insider reported, was also seen together at a Harvard-Yale football game and allegedly kissed.
Many Malia Obama fans reacted strongly to the photos, with one writing in an Instagram post that they thought she could "do better."
Meanwhile, former President Barack Obama described in a recent interview the experience of dropping his daughter off at college. In an interview with David Letterman, Barack Obama said that he was "basically useless" during the moving process because he was so emotional.
"Michelle, she had like a cleaning glove, one of those yellow ones, she's scouring the bathroom," he said in the interview, CNN reported.
"Sasha ... was helping make the bed and fold clothes ... and I was basically useless."
Barack Obama's single task, he said, was to set up a desk lamp for his daughter -- something that he said was just too difficult to accomplish.
"It should have taken like five minutes or three minutes," he said jokingly. "It had one of those wrenches ... and it only had like four parts or something. I'm sitting there just toiling away at this thing, it's taking half an hour. Meanwhile, Michelle's finished scrubbing and she's organizing closets. I was pretty pathetic."
Despite the difficult job of letting go of his eldest daughter, the former president said today's tech made it much easier to separate.
"What's changed I think from when we were kids is technology," he said. "So I get home and [Malia] knows I'm pathetic, so she's texted me hearts, and, you know, so we are talking on a regular basis. When we were kids, you had to go down to the end of the hall of the dorm [to make a call]."
In a previous interview about his daughter's move to Harvard, Barack Obama likened the experience to a major medical procedure.
"For those of us who have daughters, it just happens fast. I dropped off Malia at college, and I was saying to Joe and Jill [Biden] that it was a little bit like open-heart surgery," he told WDEL, CNN reported.
"I was proud that I did not cry in front of her," he added. "But on the way back, the Secret Service was off, looking straight ahead, pretending they weren't hearing me as I sniffled and blew my nose. It was rough."
The move, he said, was "a reminder that, at the end of our lives, whatever else we've accomplished, the things that we'll remember are the joys that our children -- and hopefully way later, our grandchildren -- bring us."
