Where Was Sasha During President Obama's Farewell Address?

The First Daughter was noticeably absent from the POTUS' big night.

In case you tuned into President Barack Obama's farewell address on Tuesday night and wondered why his daughter, Sasha, was mysteriously absent from the affair, we now know why. While her mom, Michelle Obama, and sister, Malia, were both at McCormick Place in Chicago to watch the 44th president address the American public for one last time, the 15-year-old stayed back in Washington D.C. for a really, really good reason.

According to E! News, a White House official confirmed that the high school student stayed home to study up for an exam scheduled for Wednesday.

Even Sasha (pictured here in November 2015) can't get out of schoolwork, which explains why she looks so studious in her specs.Β 

Meanwhile her family was in Chicago on Tuesday celebrating her dad.

Prior to that perfectly reasonable explanation, there were some really funny conspiracy theories that had popped up during the speech to try and explain her absence.

Actually one person got it right.
