Twitter embraces Sasha Obama with humor after enormous inaugural yawn

Twitter users have shown a great deal of sympathy for U.S. President Barack Obama's youngest daughter, Sasha, 11. The second of the First Daughters was caught on Monday in a situation that will live forever, thanks to the Internet, and tweets exploded over the incident.

On Monday, though, during her father's public inauguration ceremony, she just couldn't contain her excitement.  During his inaugural address, President Obama was speaking about U.S. education policy. He said:
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.
However, as the cameras flipped over to the first family, they caught Sasha in mid-yawn. It wasn't just a small, mouth-covered-by-hand yawn, either. It was a huge, boy-I'm-bored yawn.

Twitter users were quick to note that Sasha would never live this moment down.

Did Sasha just yawn? Love it! #kids

Sasha, who has already spent much of her life in the spotlight as the youngest daughter of -- first -- a rising Democratic star, and then the 44th president of the United States, was already in focus after Sunday, when she famously told her father, "Good job, Daddy. You didn’t mess up" after he was officially inaugurated for the second time.

Sasha's yawn has been immortalized on video, as well (embedded).
