Obama and 500 of his closest friends will be served by 200 staffers at a modest little affair being held for Obama’s birthday at his $12M mansion.
CDC rulings have been all over the map with recent recommendations leaning toward the use of a heavy hand — something that states like California will be only too happy to implement.
But like we have seen so often before, from the French Laundry and Maui trip incidents that embarrassed Newsom, to Pelosi getting her hair done, to Whitmer flying to Florida during a stay-at-home order, rules are only for the little people.
If you happen to be wealthy or politically connected, you play by different rules.
Obama just happens to be both. So when it comes to his 60th birthday, he’s not going to suffer the indignities of living under the same restrictions that the mere plebs struggle under. He’s throwing a bash. A big one, with 500 guests, 200 staff, and a live performance by Pearl Jam.
An official familiar with the plans told Axios that there are now 475 confirmed guests for the party – including Oprah Winfrey, George Clooney and Steven Spielberg – with more than 200 staff members.
All guests will have to be COVID tested and vaccinated and the party will be held outdoors on the Obama’s $12 billion 30-acre waterfront property.
But Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, said Sunday on CNN that big parties should be avoided.
‘If you’re talking about a small party like I might have at my house for six or eight people who are all fully vaccinated, I do not believe, at this point, we need to put masks on to be next to each other,’ he said.
‘But if there were 100 people, and, of course, how are you really going to be sure about people’s vaccination status?’
…The party comes just one month after nearby Provincetown saw a surge in coronavirus cases from the July 4 holiday.

Seven hundred people in close proximity is A-OK… because it’s Obama and his rich buddies.
But getting three or four families together in the neighborhood together for a backyard barbecue? That’s the kind of thing that might get Collins and the CDC wringing his hands in worry.
Because if there’s one thing we learned from those Truant Texan Democrats who ran away from their job, with Miller Lite and no masks, it’s that Democrats cannot ever be involved in any super-spreader event. Ever. Even when they are. Only Republicans are allowed to be named as responsible for a super-spreader event.
If you haven’t already seen his ‘other’ house in Martha’s Vinyard, we covered that story, including some photos of his new digs here. We also brought up some of the other things he’s said over the years about being willing to live more modest lives, with more energy-efficient thermostat settings, for example.
But all that talk was back when he was still pandering for votes, not enjoying the lifestyle of the high and mighty like he is now.
His birthday must be pretty important to Obama. More important than the carbon footprint of having 700 people show up for it, at the very least.
What do you suppose the odds are that the news media would get together in a conspiracy of silence to bury the story if Obama’s birthday DID become a spreader event? Protect the narrative at all costs. Only Republicans can do anything worth criticizing.
No-drama Obama is scandal-free. Always. No matter what kind of dog-faced pony-soldier lying it takes to make the people believe it.
