Questions are being raised about the size of President Obama’s supposedly ‘scaled down’ birthday bash on Martha’s Vineyard.

Earlier in the week, the Obama’s announced they would trim the invitation list to the former president’s 60th birthday celebration. Originally, some 700 people had been expected to attend — including a who’s-who of Hollywood celebrities.

Those plans were allegedly scrapped after critics quickly pointed out the hypocrisy of holding such an event during the middle of a global pandemic.

“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,” an Obama spokesperson said earlier this week. 

The question is what the phrase “family and close friends” means.

Drone footage from the Daily Mail shows massive tents set up on the Obama’s multi-million dollar, beachside mansion and compound. Additionally, several high profile celebrities reportedly made their way to the island including Jay-Z, Eddie Vedder, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, Dwyane Wade, and Stephen Colbert.

It’s not clear what relation Mr. Colbert or Ms. Teigen are to the former president. Perhaps they are related on his mother’s side of the family tree?

TMZ reports that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the so-called “Reverend” Al Sharpton are also in attendance.

Bloomberg reported that the birthday party was expected to be a “meatless” affair — with diners noshing on plant-based cocktail weenies.

“Guests at the scaled-back affair will be able to choose from items like Spam Musubi made with Impossible’s faux-beef and faux-pork and Eat Just’s plant-based eggs,” Bloomberg reported. “Other offerings include Questlove’s Cheesesteak Eggrolls, made with Impossible “beef” and “cheese sauce” from Perfect Day Inc., a Berkeley, California-based startup making dairy proteins without animals.”

Over the past year average Americans have not been permitted to attend church, bury their dead or host birthday parties for their five-year-olds. But we can all take cold comfort in knowing that Obama and the Oligarchs can party unmasked until the wee hours of the morning — pandemic be damned.
