Sasha Obama Has A Perfectly Good Excuse For Skipping Barack Obama’s Final Address
Barack Obama delivered his final speech on Tuesday night and brought tears to the eyes of citizens across the globe, including his eldest daughter, Malia.
Cameras captured Malia sitting next to her mother, First Lady Michelle Obama, wiping her eyes throughout the speech, moved by what her father was saying. But if you watched, you probably realized there was one little Obama missing: Sasha.
POTUS’ farewell speech became a trending topic on social media on Tuesday, but folks were equally interested in knowing where his 15-year-old daughter was. But rest assured, there was a perfectly good excuse for Sasha’s absence.
According to a White House official, FLOTUS’ daughter had an exam at school on Wednesday morning so she stayed in Washington D.C. to study. Now, that is what we call dedicated.
Sasha might’ve missed the address, but that didn’t stop Obama from raving about his two daughters. “Under the strangest of circumstances you have become two amazing young women. You are smart and you are beautiful,” he said. “But more importantly, you are kind and you are thoughtful and you are full of passion.”
He added, “You wore 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.”
