Miley Cyrus endorses Malia Obama for president after pipeline protest

It hasn't even been two weeks since Malia Obama left the White House, but singer Miley Cyrus is itching for her to return.

"I hope this little baby runs for Prez! #MaliaForPresident. You've got my vote!!!!!" Cyrus posted Sunday on Instagram.

Cyrus' post references a story about Obama's presence at an event last week at the Sundance Film Festival in support of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe's protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Actress-activist Shailene Woodley said in an interview with the Democracy Now! news program that it was "amazing to see Malia" at the event.

"To witness a human being and a woman coming into her own outside of her family and outside of the attachments that this country has on her, but someone who's willing to participate in democracy because she chooses to, because she recognizes, regardless of her last name, that if she doesn't participate in democracy, there will be no world for her future children," Woodley said.

Obama, 18, is expected to intern for Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein's company before attending Harvard University in the fall.
