Unfazed by an audience of the American people and completely unimpressed by their dad’s job, Malia and Sasha Obama carried on being the coolest kids in the country at Monday’s Inauguration festivities.
They took selfies, texted and looked bored, just like regular kids. And when Sasha tried to take a phone pic of her parents sweetly kissing, Malia took the opportunity to photobomb the moment like a pro. Barack and Michelle had no idea what happened (probably until they saw this GIF) and Michelle and the girls crowded around Sasha’s phone to look at the pictures. Dad was kind of over it and scanned his Blackberry instead.
After laying low for Obama’s first term as President, Malia and Sasha stunned everyone with their maturity when they returned to the national stage during their dad’s re-election campaign. They grow up so fast!
Sasha, 11, moved into the White House as a second-grader and continues into her tween years in the spotlight. Following in her sister’s footsteps, she knows how to rock the ultimate pseudo-ugly Snapchat face.
At 14, Malia prepares to spend her high school years in the White House. She could learn to drive (likely with Secret Service in tow), and she’ll apply to college. What will dating be like for her? We can only speculate from repeated viewings of movies like Chasing Liberty, My Date with the President’s Daughter (featuring Boy Meets World’s Will Friedle) and any episode of The West Wing with Elisabeth Moss in it. Bring on the next four years!
