(Newser) – Malia Obama had a new and very high-profile job, at least for one day. An insider tells TheWrap that the first daughter was seen working as a production assistant on the set of Halle Berry's sci-fi TV series Extant in LA last week. "She helped with computer shop alignments and the director also let her slate a take," the source says, adding that Malia said at one point, "My first time. This is a big deal." No official word from either CBS or the White House yet. Extant premieres July 9, five days after Malia celebrates her Sweet 16. In other Malia news, she recently attended her first prom and will soon be learning to drive.

Who cares if she is working,it probably cost tax payers more money to guard her all day then she made. If she wants to work why dont she go on one side of the Whitehouse and clean or mow grass,at least it wouldnt cost taxpayers to follower her all day.

...and guess what, she can't work as a production assistant or in any other position in that business without an actor's union card. She got paid. Let it go. If "they" want to take her to lunch or out to dinner afterward... hey, that's out of an expense account or "out-of-pocket". What are you trying to do? Chew the poor girl up and spit her out?

Nepotism. She's homely and of course a no talent just like her parents who don't appreciate their vast honor of their office, scoff at tradition and our troops, and hate America, and want to be Kardashians instead. Hate all of these shallow morons. The White House also belongs to the people and the Manchurian destroyer had no right to close it. Probably doesn't want anyone to see the Khomeni and Stalin enshrined all over the place.
