Malia Obama steals a Hollywood job from an unemployed American
The 15-year-old just finished her school year at the exclusive Sidwell Friends private school in Washington, D.C., and immediately flew out with the First Lady to California ahead of her father's visit to Palm Springs this weekend. While the President played golf and attended a fundraiser in the area, Malia and her mother Michelle Obama went to the Los Angeles set of the CBS sci-fi series Extant, starring Halle Berry. According to The Wrap, Malia worked as a production assistant on the show while there, including assisting the computer shop alignments and "slating" a take. It is unclear how she got the job, as spokespeople for both CBS and the First Lady did not respond to The Wrap's request for a comment. Michelle Obama reportedly accompanied Malia to the set.
Halle Berry is a longtime supporter of President Obama. She made numerous donations to his campaigns, and during his initial Presidential run in 2008, Berry said "I'll do whatever he says to do. I'll collect paper cups off the ground to make his pathway clear."
