Fresh of his 17-day luxury vacation in Hawaii, the thankfully soon-to-be former president is sticking it to the taxpayers to the very end, and now he’ll have a celebrity bash to say goodbye to his elitist friends.
January 2017 will definitely see an onslaught of A-list tourists at the White House. But they’re not coming for the inauguration.
President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will host a goodbye party for close friends and major donors Friday, according to a person with knowledge of the marquee affair. The Obamas themselves confirmed during an interview with People Magazine last month that they’d have one final bash at the White House. The president told a young fan that they’d have a “grown up” party before packing their bags.
Of course, there’s no official word from the White House yet. Typically the Obama administration keeps a tight lid on celebration details until the 11th hour. But the big names thought to be on the guest list have been slowly trickling out this week.
Wait, we thought he was the most transparent president ever? Well, that’s what he tells us.
Old standbys such as singer Usher and actor Samuel L. Jackson will most likely be there, according to another person with knowledge of the invitees. Also currently practicing their sweet moves are media titan Oprah Winfrey, who snagged an exit interview with the first lady last month on her fellow invitee and bestie Gayle King’s network CBS; actor Bradley Cooper, who showed up to the French state dinner sans underpants; Beyoncé, who sang at both of Obama’s inaugurations, and her husband, rapper Jay Z. We’re also hearing that Stevie Wonder, who has performed at the White House, director J.J. Abrams and director George Lucas make the list.
All the same idiots who helped doom Mrs. Clinton’s White House bid. These people can’t go away soon enough.
