Twitter users gushed over a series of TikTok videos appearing to star Sasha Obama dancing and lip-synching to hip-hop duo City Girls on October 25. Obama, the youngest daughter of former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama, was applauded not only for knowing the lyrics to Moneybagg Yo’s “Said Sum” but for her dance moves.
Obama, 19, who’s a student at the University of Michigan, appears to be having a great time in the TikTok videos, which quickly went viral. The videos were originally posted on TikTok by the account @cakethatsmg.
While the videos were quickly deleted from the TikTok app, they continued to go viral on Twitter.
Twitter filled with comments of support. One person tweeted, “Seeing Sasha Obama recite City Girls lyrics brings so much joy to my heart.”
Users online loved seeing Obama having a good time with her friends and living the life of a normal teenager. One woman tweeted, “i went from having a crush on barack obama when i was younger to having a crush on sasha obama now.”
Obama’s older sister, Malia Obama, 22, is in her fourth year at Harvard University.
Obama’s Prom Date Photos Went Viral in 2019
Even though the youngest Obama daughter does not have her own public social media account, she nearly broke the internet when her prom photos went viral in 2019. The then 17-year-old wore a form-fitting black dress with spaghetti straps, straight hair and big silver hoops — no longer the child Americans remembered from the White House but a now a young woman.
Obama’s new look drew many comparisons online to older sister Malia Obama, who was also on hand to take pre-prom photos, as was their mother Michelle Obama. However, the question on everyone’s mind: Who was the lucky man to take the 44th president’s daughter to Sidwell Friends’ 2019 prom?
The young man who escorted Obama to prom was Chris Milton, wearing a black and white tuxedo and raising the stakes by donning a black bow tie.
While Sidwell Friends is a highly selective private school located in Bethesda, Maryland, it appears her prom date hailed from Middleton, Ohio. Milton’s older brother, Travis, proudly posted of his baby brother’s prom photos on his Facebook page, with the caption, “CONGRATS to Chris and Sasha Obama 2019 Sidwell Prom. Hanging out with the First Family… PRICELESS!!”
Sasha & Malia Obama Were Both Featured in the Netflix Documentary ‘Becoming’
While Becoming mainly focuses on the former first lady, the Netflix documentary also features Malia and Sasha Obama, who both express how impressed they are by their mother’s success after leaving the White House.
Malia Obama tells her mom in the film, “This has demonstrated, in a way, just like, damn, those eight years weren’t for nothing, you know? You see that huge crowd out there? And that last speech you gave. … People are here because people really believe in love and hope in other people.”
Sasha Obama adds, “I’m excited for her to be proud of what she’s done because I think that that’s the most important thing for a human to do, is be proud of themselves.”
