Malia and Sasha were named among Time's 25 Most Influential Teens of 2014 — though first lady Michelle Obama thinks otherwise.

Though Obama daughters Malia and Sasha were named among Time's 25 Most Influential Teens of 2014, first lady Michelle Obama thinks otherwise.

"I don't know why — they're not influential, they just live here!" she joked on Live! With Kelly and Michael during Monday's episode, broadcast from the White House. "They have done nothing to gain any influence."

She added later, "I don't think they even realize that they're influential. I don't think anybody showed them that article, so don't mention it!"

The first lady — who was on hand to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the Let's Move! campaign — also noted of her daughters that Malia has now learned how to drive, and that they're both getting familiar with the concept of sarcasm. "When they get a little snarky, I'm like, 'Oh, you sound like your dad!'"
