There was a not-so-super-secret dance party going on at the most recognizable mansion in the nations capital Saturday night.
A birthday party to celebrate Michelle Obama's 50th birthday took place at the White House, and it was studded with celebrities, including Bill and Hillary Clinton, Stevie Wonder, Paul McCartney, Smokey Robinson, James Taylor, Gladys Knight and Herbie Hancock. Guests were treated to performances by Beyoncé and John Legend.
Among the 500 guests were TODAY's own Al Roker and his wife, ABC correspondent Deborah Roberts.
Speaking to the TODAY team by phone Monday morning, Roker described the event as "literally a house party that happened to be at the White House.
"Sasha and Malia had invited a lot of their friends, so there were a lot of young people," Roker reported....

I assume Laura Bush had birthdays during the eight years her husband was president. Funny, I don’t remember hearing about the parties.
No wonder they prohibited cellphones and selfies at this soiree.
I think it was Mr. Sowell who defined the obamas. It was “something” rich.
Wasn’t there a news embargo on this? Is Al allowed to talk about this big party?
I hope Al didn’t poop his pants like the last time he went to the WH.
Sooooooo. How much did Moochelle’s nice party cost all the rest of us? Inquiring minds want to know.

Party down with Sharia and Malaria!
The whole Sidwell Friends contingent was toking the night away.
How did that cracker get on the invite list?
.... yup .... the guys such a classy grand maven of virtue. Oh .... and the leader of what used to be the free world.
Don’t worry. we’ll get the bill for it.
I've never seen the Obamas go to the Southside of Chicago, for example, and talk to the people affected by gun violence and unemployment. Or the ordinary blacks who supported them en masse.
Michelle could have easily did such a thing on her 50th birthday. She could have went into the inner-city and pleaded for the violence to stop and talk about the breakdown of the family.
It just reveals the blatant, total hypocrisy on the part of leftists.

...”and it was studded with obsequious suck-ups”...
I wonder if Obama paid for the party out of his pocket.
I wonder if Santy Clause and the Tooth Fairy paid for Moochelle’s party. It is far more likely a possibility.
Well, at least Moochelle stayed “home” for her birthday. It could have cost us a lot more if she had taken half the federal government and 2 dozen celebrities to Paris for her imaginary coronation.
If he didn’t poop his pants I’m sure he ruined his shorts another way.
not so lucky.. Remember kind idiot left her behind so she could enjoy Hawaii with out him. So he had to take a second flight on our dime out.
“Remember kind idiot left her behind so she could enjoy Hawaii with out him.”
At least that part I can understand. :D
Yes....they were parking cars and busing tables.
500 HUNDRED....500 HUNDRED GUESTS???? OMG!!!!
I’m sure the Obamas ran this as a charity event, collecting money to donate to inner city homeless shelters. (sarcasm)
