Because not even the daughter of a former beloved president is safe from male harassment, we now have this story: Secret Service agents detained a Brooklyn man last week after he showed up to the building where former First Daughter Malia Obama is working as an intern and asked her to marry him.

A leg-barring Malia was spotted leaving her internship at The Weinstein Company in NY on Tuesday wearing a thigh-grazing, lumberjack-red, plaid shirtdress.

Jair Nilton Cardoso, 30, went up to the fourth floor of the Manhattan building where 18-year-old Malia is now interning, held up a sign, and starting shouting that she should marry him on April 10, sources told the New York Daily News.

He was kicked out by two Secret Service agents assigned to Malia's detail.

Stocks open mostly higher; Dow held down by IBM's -5% open
Treasury prices have surrendered part of yesterday's gain, with the benchmark 10-year yield trading 3 bps higher at 2.20%. US stocks have shed a much of an early gain but are still mostly higher in afternoon trading Wednesday.


But he returned just two days later on Wednesday, April 12, and followed her out of her other interning job, in the West Village.

They interviewed Cardoso and determined he needed psychiatric evaluation and took him to a hospital.

Thank goodness Malia Obama, 18, has such a strong support system! They told him to go away and leave her alone, sources said.

In an odd choice of words, the Daily News report described Cardoso as "lovelorn", prompting a swift backlash on social media. The teenager, who is taking a gap year before enrolling in her parents' alma mater, Harvard University, wore a daring denim shirtdress to work on a day in which city temperatures finally warmed into the 80s.
