Obama reportedly has scaled back his 60th birthday party because of the “Delta surge.”
First of all, it should be canceled altogether.
Second of all, he only “scaled it back” because even a narcissist like Obama knows when he looks like a moron in the news.
This must be killing him, to not be adored by hundreds and hundreds who would tongue his toes at his Martha’s Vineyard soiree.
“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,” Obama’s spokeswoman Hannah Hankins said in a statement Wednesday morning, The New York Times reported.
“He’s appreciative of others sending their birthday wishes from afar and looks forward to seeing people soon,” she added.
Obama’s decision follows a report by The Post, which cited a source as saying the former president was creating a public health “nightmare” by trying to get nearly 700 people to his party amid a national surge of the variant and new restrictions.
