The White House Hosted a Prince Concert Over the Weekend?
You’ve got to hand it to the Obamas. They sure enjoy being the first family.
This party/private concert wasn’t even on the books because the Obama’s supposedly paid for it themselves…
White House defends private Prince party
The White House on Monday defended a private concert over the weekend featuring Prince and Stevie Wonder, saying the Obamas paid for it themselves.
Around 500 people attended the event, which was not disclosed on the president’s public schedule. Press secretary Josh Earnest confirmed the first couple hosted a private party for their friends and said they “did it on their own dime.”
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, singer Ciara, and the Rev. Al Sharpton were among those in attendance. The guest list reportedly also included powerful business figures such as Carlyle Group co-founder David Rubenstein and American Express CEO Ken Chenault.
Given the size of the party and the influential guest list, Earnest was asked why the event was not made public.
And now, Michelle Obama is off to Europe…
Good thing we didn’t elect a rich, out of touch person like Mitt Romney.
