Obama Claims He's "Significantly" Cutting His Guest List for His Princely Birthday Party

He had invited 475+ guests, plus 200 servants.

What's he reducing the guest list to? 300? 250?

That's still a "large gathering" which the CDC says should be had virtually -- over the computer.

You know, how kids go to school.

More lies and gaslighting from your increasingly intolerable Ruling Class.

Former President Barack Obama has canceled his controversial 60th birthday mega-bash in Martha's Vineyard, citing the spread of the coronavirus's Delta variant.

"Due to the new spread of the Delta variant over the past week, the President and Mrs. Obama have decided to significantly scale back the event to include only family and close friends," Obama’s spokeswoman Hannah Hankins said in a statement Wednesday morning, The New York Times reported.

Note that a super-popular Savior like Barack Obama has at least 200 "close friends."


"He's appreciative of others sending their birthday wishes from afar and looks forward to seeing people soon," she added.

Obama's decision follows a report by The Post, which cited a source as saying the former president was creating a public health "nightmare" by trying to get nearly 700 people to his party amid a national surge of the variant and new restrictions.

...

On Monday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was pressed on the massive shindig -- and defended it.

Asked if Obama was "setting the wrong example about how serious COVID-19 is by hosting a big birthday party with hundreds of people," Psaki said that the venue is within a county classified by the CDC as having only moderate coronavirus transmission -- though there's an outbreak of the more contagious Delta variant of COVID-19 nearby on Cape Cod, which is just over 50 miles away.

...

Last week, Martha's Vineyard health officials urged people to wear masks when indoors as the local infection rate was categorized as "substantial," meaning more than 50 new cases per 100,000 residents over one week.

Again, the CDC says that private gatherings of six to eight people are okay, but have issued guidances forbidding larger gatherings.

Will Obama only be entertaining six to eight people?

Shiiiiiiit, Pearl Jam alone is five.

Now, I want you all to consider your Privilege and how your Privilege makes life more difficult for marginalized persons like Barack and Michelle Obama.
