Throughout their time in the White House, Barack and Michelle Obama have loved nothing more than using our tax dollars to fund lavish parties for themselves and their A-list Hollywood friends. Now, with just days to go before they leave office, the Obamas are trying to go out with a bang by throwing one last star-studded bash…
Daily Mail reported that the Obamas will be throwing the party at the White House sometime before Donald Trump’s inauguration on January 20. The party will happen sometime after January 10, when Obama will address the nation for the final time as president at McCormick Place in Chicago.
Meanwhile, Michelle is reportedly working on her own final address to the American people, which she is expected to give at the School Counselor of the Year ceremony on Friday.
An inside source told the Washington Post that the Obamas’ party is expected to be attended by Beyoncé, Stevie Wonder, Usher and Sammuel L Jackson, J.J. Abrams, George Lucas, Oprah Winfrey and Bradley Cooper.
The last time the Obamas’ threw a bash such as this was in August for Barack’s 55th birthday. That event was attended by celebrities like NBA icon Magic Johnson, Star Wars director George Lucas, and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.
Back in 2014, Today Show host Al Roker opened up about how wild the party was for Michelle’s 50th birthday.
“I gotta tell you, it was literally a house party. It was a house party that happened to be in the White House,” Roker said. “There were all these stars which was kind of terrific in fact for a while there I thought who are all these kids and it turns out Sasha and Malia invited a lot of their friends so there were a lot of young people.”
Michelle’s party was attended by Obama-loving celebrities like actress Ashley Judd, Disney CEO Bob Iger, designer Donna Karen, and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg.
It’s sickening that the Obamas continue to throw lavish parties for themselves and their Hollywood friends instead of actually helping the American people. Meanwhile, Trump has promised to forego a large number of the usual Inauguration Day balls in favor of immediately getting to work to make life better for average Americans.
