Her father had just won agreement from the Russians to cut back on the world’s stockpiles of nuclear weapons.
And Barack Obama’s eldest daughter was obviously keen to make her own statement on the issue – even if it was merely a fashion statement.
Just 48 hours after the U.S. President signed agreements with Russian president Dmitry Medvedev to reduce weapon stores, 11-year-old Malia Obama was spotted wearing not one, but two T-shirts with an anti-nuclear message.

Correct me if I’m wrong but aren’t politician’s children SUPPOSED to be off limits.
And, also correct me if I’m wrong, but that’s originally the Hippie anti-Catholic emblem from San Francisco (i.e., the broken upside down cross).
Is Obama using his children?
He’s certainly not controlling the political message that they are wearing?
Makes them a legitimate target for political controversy.
And, a good Christian father, smart and well educated, would know EXACTLY what the symbolism is.
Besides, 11 year old children don’t buy their own clothes.
Sorry, but this stinks.
I object to politicizing children. I object to the symbol. I object to the manipulation.
