Outgoing President Barack Obama bid the nation farewell yesterday with his final address before Donald Trump is sworn into office in a few days from now. But the internet was seemingly perplexed that Sasha Obama was absent from the address. The hashtag
#WheresSasha quickly started trending on Twitter.

The real reason she didn't make an appearance? She had to get up early for a final tomorrow.
