President Barack Obama has disclosed that his youngest daughter recently mocked him on Snapchat.
The United States leader said Sasha had recorded him discussing the social network at a family dinner and then quietly posted a reaction to her friends.

President Obama recounted the latest event on Monday’s edition of the Jimmy Kimmel Live TV show.
“Sasha gave me instructions on Snapchat,” he said.
“One night at dinner we’re sitting there, and I had read that Snapchat was becoming really popular among her age cohort. So, I said: ‘So, tell me about Snapchat.’
“So, she starts explaining stuff —you can make little faces on your picture, and this and that and the other.
“And at the end of it, Michelle and I are sitting there. And I said: ‘Isn’t this interesting?’
“And I started talking to Michelle about the implications of social media and what all this means.
“(And I) come to find out she was recording us the whole time, and then sent to her friends afterwards: ‘This is my dad lecturing us on the meaning of social media.
