Skip to comments.THE FIRST KIDS: Where Are They Now?
Posted on 06/30/2014 8:51:30 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
The First Kids of U.S. presidents dictate fashion trends, jet set around the world meeting dignitaries, and sometimes host senior prom in the White House East Room. You know, normal kid stuff.
But when dad's term is up and the First Family departs 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., the spotlight typically turns away from them.
To celebrate the Fourth of July which happens to be Malia Obama's birthday we checked out what the First Children are up to these days.
Caroline Kennedy serves as the U.S. ambassador to Japan.
Last fall, Caroline Kennedy landed a role perfectly suited to her lifetime of training in diplomacy as the U.S. ambassador to Japan. But she stirred a Twitter controversy when she publicly condemned the annual dolphin hunt, a Japanese tradition.
The former attorney, 56, also serves as president of the JFK Presidential Library and has written nine New York Times best-selling books on constitutional law, American history, and poetry.
Chelsea Clinton is a special correspondent for NBC.
The apple doesn't fall far from the tree when it comes to Chelsea Clinton, who serves as a special correspondent for NBC and a driving force behind her parents' philanthropy, the Clinton Global Initiative. Currently the daughter of one president, she may soon find herself the daughter of two, if her mother runs and wins in 2016.
Clinton, 34, and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting their first child later this year who, if luck would have it, could make a name for him- or herself in politics as well.
Jenna Bush Hager is a correspondent for NBC's "Today" show.
The younger twin, Jenna Bush Hager is a correspondent for the "Today" show on NBC, and a contributor to NBC Nightly News.

This paragraph deserves its own special "barf alert".
Chelsea and Jenna...
There’s something about NBC that makes First Kids attractive employees.... can anybody tell us what it is?
We are now the Philippines.
“Clinton Global Initiative”
Ha! Adventures in mendacity and self-aggrandizement!
Are ANY of these people capable of REAL work?
Very interesting, thanks. While all of them were advantaged, most of them have managed to create productive lives and kept a low profile. Ironically, Reagan’s adopted son turned out much better than the last two biological children.
Lyon Gardiner Tyler, Jr., was born in 1924, and Harrison Ruffin Tyler was born in 1928. Harrison Tyler maintains the family home, "Sherwood Forest"."
Chelsea seems to be in hiding on NBC and is the opposite in all the above listed categories.
It must be killing NBC that the Clinton daughter is deadly on camera while the camera loves the Bush daughter.
I haven’t seen the Obama brats lately. And didn’t Zero and Mooche spend Father’s Day weekend in Palm Springs without the kids?
Yeah - The Japanese can't decipher her mumbling speech any better than we can.
I can promise you that those kids are NOT sweltering in DC....I am positive they are VACATIONING ON OUR DIME SOMEWHERE!!!!
But do they work for NBC?
Malaria is working in California this summer for a Hollyweird film producer.
Not sure what Sharia is up to.
From the article:
Sasha Obama just turned 13.
Daughter of Barack and Michelle Obama
“Newly teenaged Sasha Obama is an adorable middle-schooler at the private Sidwell Friends School in D.C. who, like most other kids her age, gets visits from dad from time to time... only in this case, her dad is the president.
The president’s younger daughter has inherited her mom’s fashion sense and, because she’ll still be living under her parents’ roof when the Obamas leave the White House, may have the good luck of choosing where they all get to live in 2016.”
“THE PRESIDENT’S YOUNGER DAUGHTER HAS INHERITED HER MOM’S FASHION SENSE...”
What an incredible blessing.
Sasha is hardly adorable.
The Ford and Nixon children turned out well.
The Tyler’s are about my favorite little tidbit of US history. Theoretically, their grandfather may have me George Washington as a child.
If she’s the one who evidently inherited the Mooch’s angry scowl and seems to be wearing it as she would a fashion accessory in just about every pic I’ve seen, no that’s not adorable.
Maybe they'll tell us about First Family fights and private matters. That's all most people care about
This article is infantile and unnecessary.
News to me. I've seen several First Kids come and go and don't recall any who "dictated fashion trends" or were considered examples to follow in any way.
Sasha may not be adorable but at least she smiles once in a while. Malaria looks mad all the time. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
The Obama daughters usually spend part of the summer at a camp in central NH on Newfound Lake. The father of a friend is hired by the Secret Service every year to help patrol the lake in front of the summer camp.
What ever happened to Amy Carter? She seems to have slipped away into private life.
As far as Caroline Kennedy, how do you say: Ya Known, in Japanese?
“Sasha Obama just turned 13.”
Maybe she is out looking for a job detasseling corn. You have to be 13 to do that.
He went with Michelle and one daughter, and the other was somewhere else. An odd family - on Father’s Day, they can’t spend it together, and they have the nerve to lecture and control us?
They should, except they are not in the coveted 9-84 age group.
Bush daughter just as lib as Webb’s daughter
Obviously not looks, intelligence or character.
No one who is pro-abortion “turned out well.”
Ok, who was pro abortion?
All of them, Republican and Democrat.
I’ll believe that when I see proof of it.
I hope you don’t doubt that every one of the Democrats is pro-abortion.
Michael Reagan is the only pro-life child of a President.
Don’t worry about what I believe.
What about George W. Bush?
Okay. Michael Reagan and G.W. Bush.
Yes, the Nixons and Fords did seem to turn out OK. I was wondering about Mary Margaret Truman. Is she still around? I read some of her novels. Pretty good!
Every one of these “Presidential kids” who is considered a respectable member of polite society is pro-abortion. That means all the Democrats and all of the Republicans except Michael Reagan and G. W. Bush.
What a huge joke
Sasha is not even her real name is it?
oh yeah Trica Nixon i gave up blue jeans and.wore mini skirts like her
