President Barrack Obama gave his farewell Address ten days before the President elect Donald Trump is officially sworn in and even though his speech was obviously spectacular as expected, the absence of his youngest daughter Sasha threatened to oversahdow Obama’s farewell to the nation.
Obama thanked her wife and daughters for being exceptionally supportive and effortlesly bearing the burden of being the first family with grace and decency. He said,“Malia and Sasha, under the strangest of circumstances, you have become two amazing young women, smart and beautiful, but more importantly, kind and thoughtful and full of passion .You wore the burden of years in the spotlight so easily. Of all that I’ve done in my life, I’m most proud to be your dad.” It is here that Cameras zoomed to Michelle Obama and her eldest daughter Malia Obama who was seen wiping a stream of tears but notably absent was Sasha Obama their 15 year old Daughter.
Tweeter went wild immediately with questions and speculations of where the teen was. What was so important that she could miss such a historic event? Are her parents that serious about school or was there another reason why she was absent.
After the speech ended, a White House official told reporters that the younger Obama daughter stayed back in Washington, D.C., because she had an exam at school the following morning.
