Sasha Obama is Working at a Seafood Restaurant This Summer!

Sasha Obama is working at a restaurant this summer on Martha’s Vineyard!

The 15-year-old daughter of President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama is busing tables and working the cash register at a seafood restaurant named Nancy’s in Oak Bluffs, Mass.

“She’s been working downstairs at takeout,” a server told the Boston Herald. “We were wondering why there were six people helping this girl, but then we found out who it was.”

Sasha had six Secret Service men in tow, who set up a perimeter around the location while she worked inside.

Sasha will reportedly only work until this weekend when her parents arrive for their family vacation.

“She’s been around for a few days,” another worker told the paper. “It’s pretty random.”

President Obama Pens Essay About Feminism: Men Should Be Fighting Sexism Too

President Barack Obama has penned an essay for Glamour on feminism.

Here’s what the President – who happens to be celebrating his 55th birthday today – had to say…

On being a feminist: “And yes, it’s important that their dad is a feminist, because now that’s what they expect of all men. It is absolutely men’s responsibility to fight sexism too.”

On raising daughters Sasha and Malia: “As a parent, helping your kids to rise above these constraints is a constant learning process. Michelle and I have raised our daughters to speak up when they see a double standard or feel unfairly judged based on their gender or race—or when they notice that happening to someone else.”

On Michelle taking care of their kids: “I’ve seen how Michelle has balanced the demands of a busy career and raising a family. Like many working mothers, she worried about the expectations and judgments of how she should handle the trade-offs, knowing that few people would question my choices. And the reality was that when our girls were young, I was often away from home serving in the state legislature, while also juggling my teaching responsibilities as a law professor. I can look back now and see that, while I helped out, it was usually on my schedule and on my terms. The burden disproportionately and unfairly fell on Michelle.”

President Obama Praises Hillary Clinton & Slams Donald Trump in Democratic National Convention Speech (Video)

President Obama takes the microphone while speaking at the 2016 Democratic National Convention held at the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday evening (July 27) in Philadelphia, Penn.

The 54-year-old Commander-in-Chief showed his support for Hillary Clinton.

“I can say with confidence there has never been a man or a woman – not me, not Bill, nobody — more qualified than Hillary Clinton to serve as president of the United States of America,” he said.

“This is not your typical election,” Obama continued. “It’s not just a choice between parties or policies, the usual debates between left and right. This is a more fundamental choice – about who we are as a people, and whether we stay true to this great American experiment in self-government.”

Donald Trump calls it ‘a divided crime scene’ that only he can fix,” Obama added. “He’s just offering slogans, and he’s offering fear. He’s betting that if he scares enough people, he might score just enough votes to win this election.”
