President Joe Biden will not be attending former President Barack Obama’s star-studded, 700-person birthday party Wednesday on Martha’s Vineyard. “While President Biden is unable to attend this weekend, he looks forward to catching up with former President Obama soon and properly welcoming him into the over 60 club,” a White House official said Monday, according to Axios and The Hill. Though the president will be traveling to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, that day, Obama’s 60th birthday party will reportedly be attended by celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, and George Clooney. Pearl Jam is slated to perform. More than 60,000 people congregated in nearby Provincetown, Massachusetts, on the Fourth of July weekend, most of whom partied maskless, according to The New York Times. “Scientists have traced 965 cases to those gatherings; 238 of them involved residents of Provincetown itself,” per Axios. “The recent breakthrough cases in nearby Provincetown, Massachusetts, after the July Fourth holiday showed the continued risk of spread even between vaccinated people — prompting new masking guidelines from the CDC,” Axios continued.
