One can only imagine how hard it is growing up under a prominent political figure. There’s enormous scrutiny one must face while being in the public eye, but even more so when living under a magnifying glass for the American voter to criticize. Not only are these children looked at as American royalty, but they’re seen as people setting an example for their peers. For children and teens, enduring growing pains is already difficult, but it’s ten times more trying when there’s someone looking to catch a trip up.
Over the years we’ve seen many “wild children” roam the halls of the White House and other political establishments. Here are 12 examples of the wildest children of politicians and the worst trouble they ever got into.

Bush, was sitting in the White House, they made headlines for eight years due to their wild partying ways. They would often run red lights to get the secret service off of their trails, and would also dress in scantily clad clothing to get free drinks before they were 21. Due to their antics, the twins were referred to as “a secret service nightmare.”
