Tongues across the world went wagging with people wondering why Sasha Obama wasn't present at her father's farewell speech. If there was any event that she could miss this historical one definitely wasn't!
Although, there hasn’t been an official statement on the matter, CBS News’ Mark Knoller tweeted out that a White House official confirmed the reason Sasha was unable to attend the event was because she had a test at school on Wednesday morning back in DC, and couldn’t fly out to Chicago without getting back home ridiculously late.
Where was Sasha? WH Official says she stayed back in DC tonight because she has an exam at school tomorrow morning. — Mark Knoller (@markknoller) January 11, 2017
Well that seems to be good enough reason.
