Poor first daughter! everyone is saying after Sasha Obama, 11, was caught giving a ginormous yawn in the middle of Dad's boring inaugural speech. Sasha simply couldn't suppress a big yawn while her father droned about education policy.
The president was saying: "No single person can train all the math and science teachers we’ll need to equip our children for the future, or build the roads and networks and research labs that will bring new jobs and businesses to our shores. Now, more than ever, we must do these things together, as one nation, and one people."
He paused for an applause while the camera cut to Michelle, Malia and Sasha clapping as required, but Sasha's clap was accompanied by a big yawn.
Sympathetic media have pointed out that Sasha must have had an exhausting day, haven woken up early to prepare for morning church service and the day's inauguration festivities.
But her yawn has gone viral on Twitter, with netizens teasing her with empathy:

USA Today notes that Sasha has a uniquely 11-year-old way of making news. When Obama was officially sworn in on Sunday, she said, "Good job, Dad. You didn't mess up."
This isn't the first time that she has been caught yawning in the middle of her dad's lengthy presidential speeches. In 2008, she was caught on camera yawning during the Democratic National Convention.
And POTUS is famous for his sleep and yawn inducing speeches. In November, footage showed the US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton dozing in the middle of a "rousingly inspiring Obama speech" at the University of Yangon, Myanmar, with Hollywood Gossip putting the blame on Obama, saying: "he does kinda tend to drag these things out sometimes."
Digital Journal recalled that "in April 2011, while Obama droned endlessly about the national debt, his Vice President Joe Biden, found it advisable to take a quick nap detour to Nirvana... in June 2010, a high school student was filmed actually sleeping on his feet while Obama gave an 'inspirational' speech to kids at a Michigan high school."
