Sasha Obama, the youngest daughter of former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, began trending on Twitter Sunday after speculation ran wild that she appears in a TikTok video with a friend. In the clip, the 19-year-old Obama and a friend are seen lip-syncing to Moneybagg Yo's "Said Sum" remix with the City Girl. The video went viral after rapper JT, whose verse is heard in the clip, shared it on Twitter.
Obama is now a sophomore at the University of Michigan, while her older sister Malia Obama is attending Harvard University. They are both taking their college classes online from home, Michelle recently told Jennifer Lopez in an Instagram Live conversation. "My girls are studying from home," Michelle said on Sept. 22, notes Us Weekly. "We’re itching to get back to campus, but things are just confusing … not quite safe. I’m just glad that they’re staying put, even if they’re sick of me."
Michele also appeared on Conan O'Brien's talk show last month, where she said Obama, Malia, and President Obama were all happy to be spending so much time together during the first days of stay-at-home orders during the coronavirus pandemic. Since then though, their daughters have grown "a little sick of us," she said, notes PEOPLE.
"And so the summer started happening, and then we could be outside a little bit more, and we came to the vineyard, where we still are, and so there's more room to roam around ... that was good, 'cause it helped us break it up. And now the kids are back in Zoom land with classes," Michelle told O'Brien. "They're doing it remotely. And they're no longer thrilled about being with us."prevnext

Malia, 22, and Obama were both featured in Michelle's Netflix documentary Becoming, released back in May. In their interviews, the two praised their mother for being an inspiration to so many people. "I’m excited for her to be proud of what she’s done," Obama said. "Because I think that that’s the most important thing for a human to do, is be proud of themselves."prevnext

Obama is choosing a different path for her education, as her parents and older sister both attended Ivy League schools. President Obama attended Columbia University in New York for undergraduate classes, while Michelle earned an undergraduate degree from Princeton University in New Jersey. In August 2019, students who spoke with The Detroit News said they spotted Secret Service agents with Obama when she attended freshman orientation.prevnext
Nooooo delete this 🥺 They went and deleted every tik tok. She’s not about to be able to do tiktoks anymore 😭— lyric ✨ (@lyricshanez) October 25, 2020
While some Twitter users loved the video, others were concerned for Obama's safety. "Man y’all just exposed our good sis for the Trump supporters to criticize her and Obama. Smh True what they say, your digital footprint is forever," one person tweeted. "They deleted everything yet here it still is."prevnext

One Twitter user thought it was cool to see they had something in common with Obama, adding, "I'll take it!" Another suggested people should block Obama's parents so she can still have fun on social media.prevnext
Remember when her sister was seen smoking weed and barely twerking and the media went on a rampage? Yeah probably that— lauren (@nycgirllauren) October 25, 2020
One person found other TikTok videos with her friend before they were deleted. "I thought I was tripping when I saw Sasha Obama in these but it’s definitely her, idk why they deleted them they weren’t that bad," the Twitter user wrote. Another user replied that it was probably because of the media scrutiny that her older sister faced when photos of her smoking and dancing surfaced.prev
