Obama’s Defense Of Party, Republicans Fuming
Wonder what President Biden has to say about Obama’s birthday extravaganza? Would Biden label this as a super spreader ever?
In an absolute shocker, CNN’s Jim Acosta and New York Times White House correspondent Annie Karni defended former President Barack Obama’s 60th birthday bash and said it was “a sophisticated, vaccinated crowd” at his party.
Really? We’re in the middle of a pandemic and all of mainstream media has been saying to mask up and social distance but they give Obama a free pass?
According to the Gateway Pundit, Karni had to nerve to say, “Other people said this is really being overblown. They’re following all the safety precautions. People are going to sporting events bigger than this. This is going to be safe. This is a sophisticated, vaccinated crowd. And this is just about optics. It’s not about safety.”

Imagine if Donald Trump or another top Republican did something like this.
Journalist Glenn Greenwald had this to say about Obama’s birthday party, “A NYT reporter on CNN justifying Obama’s huge maskless birthday bash because he only invited “a sophisticated, vaccinated crowd” is about as emblematic of liberal discourse as it gets. What happened to all the concerns about vaccinated people passing Delta to the unvaccinated?“
Could Democrats be any more hypocritical. They had a field day when Republican Senator Ted Cruz flew out the country with his family but Obama can hold a party with hundreds of people?
