Former President Barack Obama is “scaling back” his birthday party plans after receiving harsh backlash for his blatant hypocrisy.
On Monday, we reported that former President Barack Obama is planning on holding a massive 60th birthday party for himself at Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, putting all Democrat created COVID protocols aside so he can celebrate himself.
The report, which was released by Axios explains that about 500 guests will be attending Obama’s birthday at his 30-acre home. The former president will have a “COVID coordinator” to make sure protocols are followed.
The news triggered a firestorm online of people calling out the Obama for being a super spreader and hypocrite considering he and his party have been pushing the most extreme COVID regulations against the American people however he doesn’t even seem to care about following them himself.
On Wednesday, the Obamas responded to the backlash, announcing that they would “scale back” the party due to the new delta variant.
“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. President Obama is appreciative of others sending their birthday wishes from afar and looks forward to seeing people soon.” Obama’s spokesperson, Hannah Hankins, said in a statement.
The “outdoor event was planned months ago in accordance with all public health guidelines and with covid safeguards in place,” Hankins said.
One of the many people to blast the Obama family for their utter hypocrisy was Pierce Morgan who called Obama’s party “incredibly reckless.”
“Imagine for a moment that Donald Trump was throwing a massive birthday party for himself and 475 conservative friends in Martha’s Vineyard next weekend?” Morgan wrote in The Daily Mail. “What do you think the reaction would be from liberals, given that America is currently in the grip of a very dangerous new phase of the coronavirus pandemic with the Delta variant of COVID that has seen infections rise 148% in the past two weeks and hospitalizations by 73%?”
Morgan went as far to say that Obama needs to cancel his party, just like the rest of America has had to do.
“If he doesn’t, he will encourage many skeptical unvaccinated Americans to continue refusing to have the shot at the precise moment when it’s desperately important they have it,” he said. “Put bluntly: he will cost lives. Cancel your party, Mr. President.”
