Obama made the comment in Charlotte, North Carolina, at his first campaign appearance in support of Clinton while making a point about how unqualified Donald Trump is.

“Everybody can tweet, but nobody knows what it takes to do the job until you’ve sat behind the desk. I mean, Sasha tweets,” but she doesn’t expect to sit behind the desk, Obama said.

People immediately started trying to figure out what Sasha's Twitter handle is.
