Washington, DC: It has been billed as the wedding of the decade and of the century, but President Barack Obama has no invitation to the star-studded weekend wedding of former first daughter Chelsea Clinton.
“I was not invited to the wedding because I think Hillary and Bill, properly, want to keep this thing for Chelsea and her soon-to-be husband,” Obama told the ladies of ABC’s “The View” on July 28.
Obama started out by joking, “You don’t want two presidents at one wedding! All the secret service, guests going through (metal detectors), all the gifts being torn apart …”
Obama said he agreed with the sentiment and told the hosts and the audience, “Sorry, ya’ll probably will not be getting invited to Sasha’s wedding or Malia’s wedding, either.”
The guest list is suspected to number between 400-500 invitees, many of whom will likely stay at Rhinebeck’s Beekman Arms & Delamater Inn, which boasts a plaque that Bill and Hillary Clinton have eaten there.
