Where was Obama’s youngest girl during the historic farewell speech

Outgoing President Barack Obama used his farewell address to praise his two daughters as his proudest achievement, but one of them was missing.

It was Sasha, the younger daughter.

“Malia and Sasha, under the strangest of circumstances, you have become two amazing young women. You are smart and you are beautiful but more importantly, you are kind and you are thoughtful — and you are full of passion. And bore the burden of years in the spotlight so easily. Of all that I have done in my life, I am most proud to be your dad.” Obama said during his emotional speech.

At this point, the Internet began to search for absent Sasha, using the hashtag #whereissasha, CNN writes.

Among the funny theories, Sasha was on an elite anti-terrorism mission, looking for President-elect Trump’s tax returns or blocking the driveway to the White House.

But actually Sasha, 15, missed the speech because she has an exam in the morning, according to a senior administration official.
