Looks like Obama’s crowd wasn’t “sophisticated” enough because COVID cases are skyrocketing on Martha’s Vineyard after the superspreader Bday bash.
Daily Mail reports that a total of 74 people on Martha’s Vineyard have tested positive for Covid- 19 since former President Barack Obama’s 60th birthday extravaganza last Saturday, more than any week since April.
However, health officials note it’s still too early to know whether the hundreds of guests and workers gathered for his weekend of maskless parties have contributed to the surge in cases.
‘At this time we’re not aware of any cases connected to the Obama party,’ Tisbury health agent and boards of health spokesperson Maura Valley told DailyMail.com. ‘It’s a little too early and the only way we’re going to know is through comprehensive contact tracing.’
Hundreds of so-called “sophisticated people” attended Obama’s birthday bash Saturday, flying in from around the country and congregating under tents where partiers danced, ate, and drank the night away on his estate in Edgartown.
We were told by CNN and NYT that Obama’s crowd was too “sophisticated” to worry about, so it’s anyone’s guess how this spike happened.
The hundreds of maskless people at Obama’s birthday party don’t have to worry about covid because they are a “sophisticated, vaccinated,” crowd per @cnn expert. I’m so glad covid can tell if a crowd is sophisticated.

Wow, maybe we should ask Dr. Fauci to look into this potential superspreader event?
In the meantime, folks online have dubbed this the #ObamaVariant.
What will the ruling party spokeswoman @anniekarni say about the Obama variant?

Quite fitting, no?
As a former PR pro, I can tell you with 100 percent certainty that this is a 5-alarm PR nightmare.
Because of all the images and videos that leaked out from the mask-free party, and after Obama did not really scale back his opulent affair, Republicans most certainly “pounce” on this – as they should.
