Twitter Hilariously Responds To President Obama Outing Sasha For Tweeting
Parents will never stop being parents — even if one of them is the President of the United States.
While campaigning for Hillary Clinton in North Carolina on Tuesday, President Obama spilled the beans on something many of us have been wondering for quite some time now… Here's a hint: It has everything to do with Sasha Obama and the mystery revolving around her non-existent Twitter account.
Does she have one? Has she ever had one? Are we supposed to know? What about Malia?! So. Many. Questions.
According to Time, during his speech in Charlotte, President Obama revealed,
Everybody's got an opinion, but nobody actually knows the job until you're sitting behind the desk. Everybody can tweet, but nobody actually knows what it takes to do the job until you've sat behind the desk. I mean—Sasha tweets, but she doesn't think that she thereby should be sitting down at the desk.
Wait, wait, wait… Sasha tweets?! The Twitter-verse went absolutely ballistic when President Obama accidentally revealed that Sasha might have a Twitter account. The only issue? We probably weren't supposed to know about it.
Did he misspeak? Was he simply referring to his daughter's text messages and confused them with tweets since he's so active on Twitter these days? We'll never really know. Not right now, at least.
I'm going to go with this theory.
For now, we'll just have to hang on to this classic photo of Malia Obama wearing a hip-hop collective Pro Era's t-shirt on Instagram. It's the only proof we have of them partaking in this whole social media thing.
Plus, Mom's not a big fan of this stuff.
When Barbara Walters asked about Malia and Sasha Obama's social media habits back in 2013, Michelle Obama revealed,
I still am not a big believer in Facebook for young people… particularly for them, because they're in the public eye. Some of it's stuff they don't need to see and be a part of… So we try to protect them from too much of the public voice.
If you know anything about Twitter, you know the social media platform revolves around “the public voice,” maybe even more so than Facebook.
That's precisely why it doesn't make any sense that the President's 15-year-old daughter Sasha would have Twitter without anyone knowing… But the president did say “Sasha tweets,” causing Twitter to go crazy.
