It was his final address to the American people as the President of the United States, and as President Barack Obama thanked his country for allowing him eight years of service and encouraged unity as power transitions to a Donald Trump Presidency, many seemed to notice one very important person missing from the address in Chicago-his youngest daughter, Sasha.

During his speech, the President took time to address his wife, First Lady Michelle Obama, Vice-President Joe Biden and his wife Jill, and his two daughters, Sasha and Malia, and while both Michelle and Malia were moved to tears over what he had to say, many seemed to notice that the 15-year-old Sasha was completely MIA from the event, with many taking to social media to joke about her absence.



However, a White House official confirmed that the youngest Obama daughter, who was only seven when her father became President, did have a solid reason for missing out on the historic farewell speech-she has a test at school this morning that she can't miss, so she stayed behind in Washington D.C..

The fact that she stayed behind to potentially study for her exam only seems to add to the wonderful things the President said about his daughters in his speech, where he praised both the 15-year-old and her 18-year-old sister, who has deferred admission to Harvard University for one year and will begin school there in Fall of 2017, for being smart and beautiful women he was proud of.

"Malia and Sasha, under the strangest of circumstances you have become two amazing women," he said. "You are smart and you are beautiful. But more importantly, you are kind and you are thoughtful and you are full of passion. And 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."
