After public outcry over their COVID hypocrisy, the Obamas claimed they were scaling back plans for his birthday party on Martha’s Vineyard.
This was apparently nothing more than a talking point, meant to mislead the public.
Over the weekend, a massive white tent was set up on the property and celebrities arrived on the island, some in private jets, to attend the party.
The Daily Mail reports:
EXCLUSIVE: Scaled back? Not so much! Obama’s 60th birthday bash looks anything but intimate as massive tents dwarf the mansion and John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union arrive on Martha’s Vineyard ahead of the celebration
Seen from the sky, these exclusive pictures and video show the sprawling set-up of Barrack Obama’s 60th birthday celebrations – and on the ground some of the crème de la crème of the entertainment, sports and political worlds are starting to arrive.
With canopies and catering stations that dwarf the Obama’s mansion, DailyMail.com can reveal the true scale of the party that, according to the former president’s spokesman, was scaled back from a 500-person extravaganza to a small affair only for family and close friends.
Stars also began rolling into Martha’s Vineyard Friday afternoon, with the island’s airport abuzz with private jets and helicopters flying in ahead of the party expected to take place Saturday…
Former senator and US Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, John Kerry was also spotted along with television presenter and comedian Stephen Colbert. Both men have homes on the island.
And as the stars flew in the tents kept going up.
The Obamas have been very careful to hide the party from public view, causing some to speculate that they may have taken away guest’s phones. No images from inside the party have leaked.
Just the massive tent structures.
This is the tent for Obama’s “scaled back” birthday party where only close friends & family were said to attend. Instead, multiple celebrities & politicians were seen

This is elitist privilege at its finest, but what else would you expect from Obama?
