January 2017 will definitely see an onslaught of A-list tourists at the White House. But they’re not coming for the inauguration.
President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will host a goodbye party for close friends and major donors Friday, according to a person with knowledge of the marquee affair. The Obamas themselves confirmed during an interview with People Magazine last month that they’d have one final bash at the White House. The president told a young fan that they’d have a “grown up” party before packing their bags.
Of course, there’s no official word from the White House yet. Typically the Obama administration keeps a tight lid on celebration details until the 11th hour, releasing a just-the-facts statement the day of the event. But the big names thought to be on the guest list have been slowly trickling out this week.
Those big names are said to include Oprah, Beyoncé, Jay Z, Bradley Cooper, Stevie Wonder, Usher, Samuel L. Jackson, as well as directors George Lucas and J.J. Abrams. Among others of course.
Why do I get the feeling that Donald Trump would give his left shriveled orange nut for just one of these people to show up at his inauguration?
Damn I'm going to miss this POTUS and FLOTUS.
They have really raised the bar for class in the White House.
Too bad that bar is about to be buried along with Michelle Obama's vegetable garden after they bulldoze it and replace it with a Hugh Hefner like grotto featuring its own stripper pole.
P.S. Of course news of this has agitated the little Tasmanian she-devil in Alaska as well.
In my opinion that is just the cherry on top.
