Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was apparently too busy with “other parties” to attend the most popular Democratic president in modern history Barack Obama’s 60th birthday party.
According to the Daily Mail, Pelosi showed up to St. Elizabeth’s Church on Martha’s Vineyard, where Obama’s party was, but didn’t go inside. Why? Because she had other parties to go to.
“I didn’t go. I had other parties to go to,” Pelosi said to Attorney Kevin Blake after being asked how the party was.
Blake said to the Daily Mail that he found it “hilarious” that Pelosi didn’t go to Obama’s birthday party.
“To be her, the most powerful woman in Congress, and not even go to his party? I find that hilarious,” he said. “And she’s the one carrying forward his agenda.”
While speaking with the New York Post, Pelosi said that she was actually on Martha’s Vineyard to attend “private events in support of House Democrats”
The comments from Pelosi are questionable because according to the Daily Mail, Pelosi was actually disinvited from the party after the Obama’s allegedly downsized the party.
The Daily Wire reports:
One notably absent Democrat was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), on of the former president’s biggest supporters. The Daily Mail reported that Pelosi was on Obama’s original list of more than 600 guests, but was cut after a massive backlash ensued over his ability to ignore COVID-19 restrictions while others have been required to follow them. Pelosi reportedly attended St. Elizabeth’s Church on Martha’s Vineyard – where Obama held his massive party – and took pictures with fans outside. Attorney Kevin Blake was outside the church, the Mail reported, and asked Pelosi how Obama’s party went.
Obama’s birthday party was met with harsh criticism considering he and the Democratic party are pushing COVID mandates and restrictions against the American people however he is throwing himself a massive party.
Instead of criticizing Obama, Democrats in the media are actually defending him as they continue to push harsh restrictions on the American people.
During an interview with far-left CNN host Jim Acosta, New York Times White House correspondent Annie Karni defended Obama and his super spreader event, calling the maskless group a “sophisticated, vaccinated crowd.”
“Other people said this is really being overblown,” she said. “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.”
Yes, it's a pandemic and a crisis, but let the sophisticated people have their fun!
