(TruthandLiberty.com) – On Wednesday, July 28, reports started circulating that the Obamas were planning a massive birthday party for the 44th President of the United States. The two were expecting upward of 700 people at the former president’s mansion on Martha’s Vineyard at the same time the CDC revised its controversial mask guidelines.
On Tuesday, the Obamas announced their plan to scale back the massive party after media outlets criticized the former president for his hypocrisy. Now, it appears they’ve canceled the party altogether.

Fox & Friends took some time to have fun at the former president’s expense. Host Steve Doocy suggested Obama might know his plans were “tone-death.” Sitting in for Brian Kilmeade, Lawrence Jones said the double standard of thee, not me, was the root issue. He questioned whether event planners would have canceled the massive party if no one had known about it.
Obama isn’t the first Democrat to have taken criticism over COVID-19 rules. Cameras caught California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom enjoying himself at a restaurant with family and friends during the height of the pandemic. The governor wasn’t wearing a mask or socially distancing, violating his own orders. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) recently went without a face covering at a hair salon. Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) enjoyed time at a bar with family and friends in violation of her mask and social distancing orders.
Extravagant birthday parties and violations in multiple public businesses? How can anyone expect Democrats to become more thoughtful about their orders if they can’t follow their own rules?
