Why Wasn't Sasha Obama at the Farewell Speech?

There's a Good Reason Sasha Obama Wasn't at Her Dad's Farewell Speech

President Barack Obama delivered his farewell speech in front of an audience that included wife Michelle and 18-year-old daughter Malia in Chicago on Tuesday. While we loved seeing the trio together, a question that was on everyone's minds was, "Where is Sasha?" Turns out, there's a good reason the 15-year-old wasn't at her dad's final address. According to BuzzFeed News, a White House official reported that "Sasha stayed back in DC tonight because she has an exam at school in the morning." So, there you have it!
