Reason #235 Why Sasha Obama Is Cooler Than Your Kid

- By Bossip Staff

Not only is nine year old Sasha Obama cooler than your kid, she’s got more skills than you!

President Barack Obama’s nine-year-old daughter, Sasha, wanted to test her developing Chinese skills this week while Hu Jintao was in town.

Just whom did she want to practice them with?

The Chinese president himself, according to a White House official who recounted the story on Thursday after a formal state dinner the previous night.

“The president pointed out last night at the state dinner that his daughter, Sasha, is a very young girl but her class is studying Chinese,” Ben Rhodes, a White House deputy national security adviser, told a video conference with Chinese bloggers.

“She’s under 10 years old and they’re studying Chinese, and she wanted to have the chance to practice her Chinese with President Hu.”

Sasha attended Hu’s welcoming ceremony on the White House lawn on Wednesday morning with friends and could be seen waving a Chinese flag excitedly as her father and Hu walked around the grounds.

So while you’re at home snacking on fruit snacks and sitting through yet another episode of Kai Lan with your kid, remember that little Miss Sasha is showing you up!

    This is a wake-up call for the rest of us. If the President is preparing his child to speak Chinese, this is a sign that the Chinese DO own this country and it’s just a matter of time before the language will be incorporated into our schools to prepare us for the new “master” of our country. kEM WER hit it on the head. Get ready yall! While we are learning Spanish, our new employers will be speaking and hiring in Chinese!

  • if anything be noble

    Niiiice Sasha (although President Hu probably wa’nt hardly interested. He was probably all ‘Hurryup hurryup, kid. I don’t have all day with all that flag waving and carrying on. These human rights are NOT going to violate themselves.’)

I was trying to go to the big game if they go til I looked at the prices. Yall want HOW much? Um…. You did not just say you want $475 for a general admission ticket to just stand up there and look down from Saturn and have NO seat –on top of the $150 you want just to park one car. [Lemme check this phone to see if they were breaking up.] I think Ima see if this remote still works. Lol Go Tomlin/Go Hines! Steeler D, baby. 😉 One more game….

    • The Commenter Formerly Known as White Devil

      That’s a bit extreme. I think you should turn off Fox News.


    She’s cool because she speaks Chinese?? Anyone with the ability to learn can speak Chinese! She’s cool because her dad is the President?? That’s by chance…not choice. It could have just as well been me. =)

  • CooCooKitty

    Good for her,as the daughter of one of the smartest men in the world,and not to mention President of The United States,and very well educated mother to boot,I wouldn’t expect her to have anything less than the best education. Unfortunately it’s the best education that money can buy. While our regular public school students are barely learning how to read and write much less a foreign language.

  • Anthony
