Obama Caught

Former President Obama, who has enjoyed favorable if not fawning media coverage over the years, is getting torched for his over-the-top, celebrity-soaked 60th birthday bash on the Vineyard.

Maureen Down, under the headline “Behold Barack Antoinette” (with a movie still from “The Great Gatsby”), called it “an orgy of the 1 percent — private jets, Martha’s Vineyard, limousine liberals and Hollywood whoring.”

Matt Taibbi’s Substack headline was “The Vanishing Legacy of Barack Obama”: “This Covid bash was Barack Obama’s ‘F— it!’ moment.

Stephen Colbert, having fun with the fact that he was invited and then scaled back, joshed about a “celebrity mosh pit,” and said Obama “was forced to limit the invites to only his closest Beyoncés.”
