Presidential kids are often the subjects of scrutiny when growing up in the public eye, which means that when they get in trouble, it’s not just a telling off from their parents they can expect, but scandalous headlines from media outlets across the globe. Here are seven scandals involving presidential kids, from former president George W. Bush’s daughter Jenna Bush’s alcohol troubles to Donald Trump Jr.’s countless cringey moments. 1. President George W. Bush’s daughter Jenna Bush had alcohol misdemeanours Jenna Bush and her twin sister Barbara were the talk of the town in the early 2000s, though it wasn’t always for the right reasons. In 2001, while Jenna was a first year at the University of Texas, the then first daughter was cited for two alleged underage drinking offences: possession of alcohol as a minor and later trying to use a fake ID to purchase alcohol at an Austin restaurant. The incidents occurred within a five-week span and were minor misdemeanours, though they also inevitably made national headlines. Jenna, who pleaded no contest to the possession of alcohol charge, was ordered to pay US$51 in court costs, serve eight hours of community service and attend six hours of alcohol awareness classes. After she also pleaded no contest to trying to use someone else’s ID for alcohol, her driving licence was suspended for 30 days, and she had to pay a total of US$600. “I felt embarrassed, and I felt really badly for [my dad] because I thought this is going to make him look bad,” Jenna, now Jenna Bush Hager, told Today show host Hoda Kotb in March. “He apologised to me because what we wanted more than anything was to just be normal college kids. He said, ‘I’m sorry. I promised you could be normal, and this isn’t normal.’” 5 times Barron Trump proved he’s too cool for his dad Donald Though the drinking charges were front-page news at the time, Jenna says she can now laugh about it. “Everybody knows I had a fake ID, which was really naive because my dad was president,” Jenna said on Today . “I tried. I tried and failed. A girl that was in my school was like, ‘We look a lot alike; I’ll give you my ID.’ That was dumb.” 2. Malia Obama was criticised for smoking Malia Obama found herself in hot water in 2017 after a video online appeared to show her smoking and blowing smoke rings. According to The Independent , conservative news site The Daily Caller wrote an article about the video, which led to public criticism of the former first daughter. However, fellow first kids Ivanka Trump and Chelsea Clinton quickly came to Obama’s defence, calling for her and other presidential children’s right to privacy.

Be better.” 3. Donald Trump Jr. has been embroiled in scandals multiple times Though Donald Trump Jr. never held an official position in his father’s administration, he has nevertheless been a subject of controversy and public ire . Down in the Trumps! How Cristiano Ronaldo lost millions on his Trump Tower apartment More than a decade before his father entered the White House, Trump Jr. was arrested in 2001 for public drunkenness during Mardi Gras in New Orleans, Louisiana. He also later came under fire for a 2016 tweet aimed at Syrian refugees, in which he posted an image that had the text, “If I had a bowl of skittles and I told you just three would kill you, would you take a handful? That’s our Syrian refugee problem.” He commented, “This image says it all. Let’s end the politically correct agenda that doesn’t put America first.” The post received so much backlash that a Skittles executive even posted its own statement. “Skittles are candy. Refugees are people,” said Denise Young, vice-president of corporate affairs for Wrigley America, which owns Skittles. “We don’t feel it is an appropriate analogy.” In 2019, Trump Jr. faced criticism for his hunting practices . On a trip to Mongolia, the politician’s son hunted an endangered breed of sheep and later met with Mongolia’s president. He was awarded a permit to hunt the sheep after he had already killed it, according to ProPublica. Trump Jr. also travelled with the Secret Service, costing taxpayers more than US$75,000 for the eight-day excursion, according to documents obtained by a government watchdog group. But USA Today reported that, according to a source close to the president’s son, Trump Jr. paid for all of the trip himself apart from the security. Trouble continued for Don Jr. even after his father left office. Trump Jr., along with his father and sister Ivanka, were recently subpoenaed as part of a wide-ranging civil investigation by the New York attorney general into whether there was fraud within the Trump Organization.

However, while the Trumps were supposed to testify by March 10, as originally ordered by a Manhattan judge, their testimony is being delayed while their lawyers appeal the judge’s order, according to a report by Insider. 4. Hunter Biden is currently at the centre of an investigation into his business dealings in Asia and Europe According to The New York Times , the investigation started as an inquiry into Hunter Biden’ s taxes, though it expanded in 2018 to include possible criminal violations of tax laws, foreign lobbying rules and possible money laundering. Biden has previously said he handled his tax affairs “legally and appropriately”, and it was reported this month that he had “paid off a significant tax liability”, which experts said could make it harder for tax-related offences to stick. You might also recall that, in 2020, then president Donald Trump attempted to launch his own inquiry into Biden’s involvement with Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian energy company. Questioning over Biden’s dealings with the company, and whether Biden used his political connections for financial gain, shed a negative light on his father’s campaign and became a talking point for Trump, who was seeking re-election. Both Bidens denied any wrongdoing in dealings with Ukraine and other countries. What’s going on with Melania Trump? Her controversial 2022 so far The Justice Department’s investigation into Hunter’s business dealings is ongoing and he has not been charged with any crime. The State Department will begin to hand over emails regarding Hunter to The New York Times following a delay in two of the publication’s Freedom of Information Act requests.
