So, Why Wasn't Sasha at Obama's Farewell Address?

In fact, Sasha Obama had to take care of some adolescent business last night, which is why she wasn't in Chicago supporting her dad's farewell speech. Obama started his speech by remembering his younger days spent in Chicago.

Sen. Jeff Flake, an Obama critic, typed out this tweet: " Just listened to POTUS (sic) final address.

To his daughters, Obama said: "Malia and Sasha, under the strangest of circumstances, you have become two unbelievable young women, smart and handsome, but more importantly, kind and thoughtful and full of passion". He said he was addressing all Americans and thanking them for making him a "better president and a better man".

"You took on a role you didn't ask for and made it your own with grace and with grit and with style and good humor", he said, wiping his eyes with a tissue. You've made me proud.

In remarks seen as a warning to Trump, who has faced criticism for his statements on race, religion, gender and disability, she said America's "glorious diversity" was "not a threat to who we are, it makes us who we are".

It's a symbolic bookend to Obama's eight years in office; he is returning to the city that launched his political career and the site of his rousing victory speech in 2008. "I told you that day that the challenges we faced would not be met easily or in a short span of time - but they would be met". "I can't do that, said US President Barack Obama as crowd shouted "four more years". The White House said in a statement Tuesday evening that she has an exam Wednesday morning and stayed back in D.C.

Others were simply confused that she would miss the speech, especially when Obama began talking about his family and both Michelle and big sis Malia, 18, teared up.

The outgoing president also admitted that his dream of a racist free America could not be materialised in true spirit although he paid tribute to his place as America's first black president. "I committed to President-Elect Trump that my administration would ensure the smoothest possible transition, just as President Bush did for me".
