While many Americans were watching Barack Obama’s farewell speech in Chicago on Tuesday night, others were left with one burning question.
Where was Sasha Obama?
The goodbye photo clearly only shows 18-year-old Malia Obama on stage with mum and dad, Michelle and Barack, but there’s no sign of her 15-year-old sister.
The simple explanation is that she stayed in Washington because she had an exam at Sidwell Friends private school on Wednesday morning.
The school has educated the children of American presidents for years, including Chelsea Clinton.
So it will be used to cracking down on pupils for trying to miss class because of official presidential engagements.
