Barack Obama’s 55th birthday bash is today, Friday. And it looks like the 44th president of the USA has invited Hollywood over while banning “social media” according to Daily Mail. The president’s actual birthday was yesterday, Thursday. First Lady Michelle Obama probably thought it prudent to have her husband’s birthday bash on Friday for a good reason.
The White House party for President Obama was organized by Michelle with most of the details being kept top secret. One thing that is not top secret, according to the source, is the fact that the party will be an all-night celebration. This means that nobody in the first family will be getting sleep as there is going to be non-stop dancing and entertainment led by Beyoncé and husband Jay Z.
The First Lady reportedly wants Barack Obama to let his hair down and enjoy the celebration. So it looks like it’s going to be a night of non-stop music and loud noises at 1600 Pennsylvania avenue. But the neighbors won’t be complaining since they are far away from the White House, anyway.

Oh, the privilege of being president of the United States. There won’t be any angry neighbors to complain about excessive partying which is so unlike superstar Justin Bieber’s personal experience. It wasn’t known, though, whether Bieber has been invited to the Barack Obama birthday bash.
Obama’s 55th birthday will be the last one he will celebrate with his family in the White House, as the 45th president of the United States will be elected on November 8. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is confirmed as one of the guests, along with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Attorney General Loretta Lynch. According to Hot New Hip Hop, “the other non-musicians in attendance include Anna Wintour, Ellen DeGeneres, Magic Johnson, Alonzo Mourning.”
President Obama celebrates his birthday as the 2016 Olympic Games open in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. The president couldn’t be happier as his popularity rating among Americans is at its highest level since 2012, according to NY Daily News. Also, Hillary Clinton, who Barack Obama has repeatedly endorsed as the next president, is well ahead of the Republican candidate, Donald Trump. Here is what Five Thirty Eight says.
“The recent Fox News, Marist College, and NBC News/Wall Street Journal national polls show Trump trailing Clinton by 9 to 14 percentage points, margins that would make for the largest general election blowout since 1984 if they held.”
With all these happy poll numbers, President Obama will probably be doing a lot of dancing and singing tonight. Aside from Beyoncé and Jay Z, other Hollywood entertainers who are confirmed for tonight at the White House are Stevie Wonder, Kendrick Lamar, Jennifer Hudson, John Legend, and Usher.
Further, according to Daily Mail, all guests are expected to have had dinner before coming to the White House.
The Obama family will then fly out to Martha’s Vineyard on Saturday for their annual vacation on the island. So it looks like birthday celebrant Barack Obama will have plenty of time to recuperate from partying all night, that is, before playing golf.
In an earlier report, the Inquisitr said that the Barack Obama birthday bash is likely to be held at Camp David, instead of the White House. Camp David, according to the report, is the president’s personal choice. So it looks like the chief organizer, Mrs. Obama, had something else in mind.
Asked what his birthday wish was according to the Inquisitr, Barack Obama reportedly said acquire the debt-ceiling deal he was “pursuing at the time, as well as some French fries and a nice B-day burger.”
It’s not certain whether President Obama got his birthday wish fulfilled yet.
