Hip Hop BBQ?

POLITICO EXCLUSIVE — The President’s private 50th birthday bash, not listed on his public schedule: His gift to the press corps was a travel/photo lid shortly after 4 p.m., prompting what pooler Julie Mason called “general cheering in WH workspace.” An hour later, the party started…

–… with dinner in the Rose Garden, accompanied by “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band. Then the First Lady and his daughters presented POTUS with a cake, and everyone moved into the East Room for performances that included R&B singer Ledisi, and Herbie Hancock. Stevie Wonder came up at the end and sang a medley ending in “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours.” DJ Cassidy played Motown, hip hop, and ’70s and ’80s R&B.

–The president asked everyone to dance — and they did!

–DINNER: BBQ chicken, ribs, hamburgers, hot dogs, pasta, salad.

–DESSERT: apple, peach, huckleberry and cherry pies; chocolate cake.

Holy shit.  Is Fox News serious?  Hip Hop BBQ?  You’re shitting me right?  I can just picture them snickering in the news room:  “Hey Bill, check out Obama’s birthday party, Jay-Z was there, they danced and listened to Mo-Town….and guess what they ate for dinner…..hahhaha chicken!!”  “Hahahhah, Yuck, Yuck, Yuck!”   What’s funny is that the white group that performed at the bash, O.K. Go, was not even mentioned in the article.
