The internet is normally so good at sleuthing things out and solving mysteries. Really, it’s one of the things the internet does best. That is why I cannot believe that in the eight years Barack Obama graced us with his presidential presence and in the five months since, no one figured this out until now.

You guys, Sasha Obama’s real name is not Sasha. It is Natasha, and Sasha is short for that. New York Daily News reported her real name (if that actually is her real name, and what even is real anymore?), and still, the internet didn’t catch on until now.
Twitter, of course, had a field day with the news because this is a mind-blowing plot twist.

There is screen-shot proof of this, and apparently it’s been Google-able for God knows how long.

Oh, and another thing: This information has been out and available for at least one entire year. That’s right: when Sasha had her summer job bussing tables at a seafood restaurant in Martha’s Vineyard last summer, she went by Natasha. She had a name tag that literally read “Natasha.” Are you shook? Because I am shook.
This is a travesty. Do better, internet.
