Social Media Pounces on Obama’s ‘scaled back’ Birthday Party

It looks like former President Obama’s 60th birthday party was still a huge bash.

Photos of the event were posted on social media.

Originally, the party was going to be a huge affair with over 500 guests but because of concerns about the Delta variant, the party size was supposed to be reduced.

A spokesperson for Obama commented earlier this week, saying, “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.”

The Daily Mail reported on the event including pictures of tents and celebrities attending the party.

Social media critics pounced on the photos of huge tents at Obama’s home in Martha’s Vineyard.

Some comments focused on the lack of masks and ignoring general COVID-19 rules of avoiding large crowds.

Obama’s party is just another example of elites having different standards with COVID-19 than regular Americans.
