Sasha Obama Yawn During Inaugural Address Sparks Twitter Frenzy

A Sasha Obama yawn during her dad’s inaugural address has set off a firestorm on Twitter as posters sympathetic to the young girl’s situation spoke out in support of her boredom.

The 11-year-old Sasha was spotted by cameras yawning during President Obama’s speech on Monday. The Sasha Obama yawn stole the spotlight away from her father and instantly became a trending topic on Twitter, NBC News noted.

“Best part of the inauguration: Sasha’s GIANT “Dad you’re boring me” yawn,” one user tweeted.

The youngest Obama daughter has been known to grow bored with her father’s political functions. In 2008, Sasha Obama was caught in another yawn at the Democratic National Convention. Then 7, Sasha Obama was seen resting her head on mother Michelle Obama’s lap while her father spoke.

She also let out a yawn during the 2009 inauguration.

Sasha’s yawn made headlines even out of the United States. The UK’s Daily Mirror also reported on the First Daughter’s candid moment of boredom.

Sasha and her older sister Malia were likely more engaged at some of the inaugural parties that stretched from this weekend into Monday. They were the featured guests at the Kids’ Inaugural Party on Saturday, which featured performances from Usher and Katy Perry. The party was thrown in support of military families, and included a hall full of military children dancing and singing along with Sasha and Malia.

The Sasha Obama yawn may have only been the second most adorable thing she did at the inaugural events. On Sunday, when President Obama was officially sworn in, Sasha congratulated him by saying, “Good job, Dad. You didn’t mess up.”

    This family has been up and going non-stop since dawn. They have to be exhausted and they are nowhere close to being finished with the day. Of course she yawned, she is tired. And shame on the photographer for taking this picture and exploiting this poor girl because she dared to yawn in public. Give me a break…you photographer's need to get a life if this is all you have to bring to the table.
