Party footage from former President Barack Obama’s 60th birthday bash at his $12 million estate in Martha’s Vineyard shows hundreds of maskless guests at the celebration on Saturday night.
Last week, a spokeswoman for the former president said the Obamas had decided to “significantly scale back the event to include only family and close friends,” due to “the new spread of the Delta variant.” Video of the party, however, tells a different story.
While Americans are being told to keep their events small, “wear a mask with two or more layers,” and stand at least six feet apart from each other, the former president was caught on video dancing maskless among hundreds of also maskless party guests.
The birthday bash was quickly maligned on social media, with “Maskless Obama” trending on Twitter on Sunday afternoon.
Beyonce, Jay-Z, Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, George Clooney, and Bruce Springsteen were also among the A-listers on the guest list who reportedly showed up for Obama’s so-called “scaled back” birthday bash.
Singer John Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, were also guests at Barack Obama’s big maskless birthday party on Saturday in Martha’s Vineyard:
