Obama to hold Super Spreader Event

No.901275 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Former President Obama is reportedly planning a party on Martha’s Vineyard for dozens of guests to celebrate his 60th birthday – and presumably also for the backlash he’s getting for having a mass gathering during the summer COVID-19 outbreak.

Obama and his family have in recent summers spent time on the island off of the Massachusetts coast and in 2019 bought a $11.75 million home in the Edgartown section.

Guests will reportedly be asked to take a coronavirus test and be vaccinated ahead of the event.

"Will the media cover this as the next big super-spreader event?" tweeted Brent Bozell, founder of the Media Research Center.

The recent spike in COVID-19 cases, attributed to the emergence in the U.S. of the high-contagious delta variant and roughly 50% of the population being unvaccinated, has resulted in numerous orders across the country for residents to again start wearing a mask, though essentially indoors. Among those reportedly being invited are Hollywood stars Oprah Winfrey and George Clooney, and the 90’s grunge band Pearl Jam has also reportedly been asked to perform.
