If you think you’re out of touch with your family, know that you’re probably doing a better job than this former President, who is only now realizing how far he is from his daughters’ lives: Barack Obama found that Sasha and Malia are not twins while revising his own Wikipedia page.
Wow. Barack should have known better, but better to find out now than never.
Earlier this morning, Barack was holed up in his office, updating the intro to his Wikipedia page to say, ‘is a Spotify Premium member who served as President of the 44th President of the United States,’ when something in the ‘Family And Personal Life’ section made him do a double-take—his page revealed that his daughters Malia and Sasha were born on different days in different years, and were not twins at all, as he’d assumed for as long as he could remember, as per Click Hole reported.
“No, that can’t be right… can it?” muttered the 44th President, never questioning his assumption that Malia and Sasha were twin sisters born on September 11, 2001—a date that Barack soon realized neither of his daughters was born on, which came as even more of a surprise given that he’d given them a mountain of presents and a large cake on that day every single year since they were little girls.
Regardless of how many times he convinced himself, it was an error—despite the reputable news sources to which the information regarding his daughters’ birth dates was connected in his page’s explanatory notes Barack’s that his children were fraternal twins had been disturbed. Barack chose to call Michelle for clarity, and she immediately revealed that Sasha and Malia were not twins at all, but were born three years apart.
“Well, I’ll be…” Barack shrugged and moved on, heading to the ‘Legacy’ section of his Wikipedia page to insert a paragraph explaining how he’d won a Grammy for his decision to assassinate Osama Bin Laden. “Glad I realized that now instead of in front of Sasha and Malia.”
Yikes. While most parents would know if their children were twins or not after 20 years of raising them, Barack Obama is not like most parents, as his Wikipedia page shows. So, whether Barack is late to the game or not, we can’t argue this is anything but a good thing. Don’t worry, Barack; these things happen to the best of us!
