Wait, what? Sasha Obama tweets? Is it possible that somewhere in cyber space there is a disguised Twitter account run by the 15-year-old daughter of the POTUS? If so, no one knew about it until President Obama let it slip.
Obama spends a lot of his time doing his POTUS duties, endorsing the Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, in her presidential campaign and doing what every other dad is doing – embarrassing his kids.
He may have anticipated attention directed at him for the speech he gave in Charlotte, North Carolina, but chances are he didn’t expect the spotlight to be on his daughter. During his speech at a rally for Clinton, President Obama took a moment to hit the tweets that came from the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald Trump, and he accidentally spilled the beans that Sasha Obama tweets.
“Everybody can tweet, but nobody actually knows what it takes to do the job until you’ve sat behind the desk,” Obama said. “I mean—Sasha tweets, but she doesn’t think that she thereby should be sitting down at the desk.”
It’s unclear if Obama was referring to a secret twitter account run by Sasha or if he misspoke completely. Either way, social media fans are now on a crazed hunt to find the hidden twitter account.
It’s widely known that the President and First Lady have kept social media to a minimum when it comes to their daughters.
“I still am not a big believer in Facebook for young people…particularly for them, because they're in the public eye," Michelle Obama said in an interview with Barbara Walters in 2013. "Some of its 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.”
After President Obama accidentally revealed that Sasha tweets the public eye turned directly toward her. You can bet that if her Twitter account is found she will gain exponential followers and an absolute abundance of @mentions!
What are your thoughts on Sasha Obama possibly having a secret Twitter account?
