It has been confirmed that Malia Obama, older daughter of former President Barack Obama, will be attending Harvard University in the fall this year. She decided to take a gap year first before she will be pursuing her higher education.

However, fake news about the former first daughter's expulsion from the Ivy League institution was recently published online. The article was by The Last Line of Defense.

It was reported that Malia Obama was "ousted from the student roster at Harvard University." Apparently, it was because she was caught vaping marijuana with friends.

The publication even claimed that Malcolm Little, Harvard's chancellor, has said that she will not be welcome in the institution this fall since the school has a strict no drug policy.

Snopes clarified that the post about Malia Obama's expulsion from Harvard University is just fake news. This is because, first, The Last Line of Defense describes itself as an entertainment website that publishes satirical stories.

It even has a disclaimer on its "About Us" page. It said that the information and facts provided by its sources "may or may not be reliable" and "don't necessarily exist."

Second, while Malia Obama has been confirmed to attend Harvard University, she does not go there yet so she can't be expelled technically. The former first daughter will be going to the Ivy League institution in the fall of 2017 as a member of the Class of 2021, the White House said in a statement.

The eldest daughter of former President Barack Obama has decided to take gap year. According to the New York Times, Malia Obama visited Harvard as well as other Ivy League and liberal arts schools early last year.

She will be joining the likes of other presidential children who have attended Harvard University. Some of them are John Quincy Adams and his son, John Adams II; Abraham Lincoln's son Robert; the sons of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Theodore Roosevelt and Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of John F. Kennedy. Former president George W. Bush also went to business school in the institution.
