“It is a longstanding tradition that the children of Presidents are afforded the opportunity to grow up outside of the political spotlight,” the administration said in a statement Tuesday. “The White House fully expects this tradition to continue.”

She was suspended from the show shortly afterwards and later apologized for her “inexcusable” message.
