So, one of the things people were wondering during President Barack Obama’s farewell address tonight is — where was Sasha?

Why isn’t Sasha Obama at this speech? I’m just going to assume it’s because it’s a school night and Obama seems like that kind of Dad

Sasha has a report tomorrow morning so she couldn’t be there.
