Sasha, you win the Internet right now.
With less than 100 days to the ed of his presidential term. President Barack Obama is still up for making himself and his family the most memorable one — this time, it’s thanks to his daughter Sasha. Folks, you know how it is: when a teenager schools you on using social media, you sit down and listen. Class is in session.
President Obama shared this anecdote with Jimmy Kimmel about an evening he asked Sasha to teach him about the joys of Snapchat. True enough, his daughter treated him to an impromptu lesson — and made him the star of a Snapchat post of hers.
Obama continued to relate how fascinating this all was. “I started talking to Michelle about the implications of social media and what all this means,” he said.
“Come to find out she [Sasha] was recording us the whole time, and then sent to her friends afterwards: ‘This is my dad lecturing us on the meaning of social media’. And she took a picture of herself sort of looking bored.”
While he chuckles about this, he also recounts how he does certainly have a phone — but it isn’t really a phone. Huh?
“I have email, but I don’t have texting,” he explains. “I now have an iPhone, but it is, you know, like the phone you give your two-year-old,” he grins. “Where they can pretend to press things but nothing actually happens. So my phone has no phone, no camera, no music… All I have is the internet, and I can send emails. I think it also has that weather box.”
Ah. We feel you, Mr. President.
