Joe Biden has a public relations nightmare on his hands.
It involves one of his closest allies.
And Barack Obama just broke a rule Joe Biden demanded every American follow.
Barack Obama turns 60 on August 4.
In celebration of that milestone, Obama is throwing himself a massive birthday party at his family’s new 12 million dollar Martha’s Vineyard estate.
500 guests – including A-listers like Oprah and Steve Spielberg – will attend with Obama hiring 200 staff to wait on his celebrity guests.
Obama also signed up rock band Pearl Jam to perform.
The Daily Mail reports:
Former President Barack Obama has come under fire for his plans to host nearly 500 people at his Martha’s Vineyard mansion for his 60th birthday, despite a nationwide rise in COVID cases.
The former president is set to turn 60 on August 4, and is said to be planning a large soiree at his 7,000-square-foot mansion in the Edgarton section of Martha’s Vineyard next weekend.
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.
This comes after the Biden administration urged all Americans – regardless of vaccination status – to wear masks and Joe Biden threatened further COVID restrictions.
Biden will not face questions about how he can expect Americans to live by his public health pronouncements and take the virus seriously when Barack Obama threw a birthday bash that ignored the Centers for Disease Control’s recommendation on how to slow the spread of coronavirus.
This adds to the layers of communications failures the Biden administration is dealing with as cases of the so-called “delta” variant surge across the country.
Many Americans find the Biden administration’s message confusing as the administration says the vaccines work, but then also tells vaccinated people to wear a mask.
In addition, the administration demands Americans comply with the ever-changing CDC edicts while Joe Biden’s closest allies openly flaunt the guidelines.
