No Obama in Chelsea Clinton Wedding
United States President Barack Obama has said in an interview with The View that he will not be attending the wedding of former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton, msnbc.com reports.
During the taping of an episode for the show, the President visited and was interrogated by the five lady hosts. The taping was done Wednesday, July 28. They discussed many topics that concern the leader’s handling of the nation’s current problems.
However, Barbara Walters was not able to contain herself and asked the question that was probably in everybody’s mind. Was he invited to the wedding of the only child of former US President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary 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,” he said.
He also said that the Clinton family may not want all the security that will entail if he attends the wedding since he jokingly said, “You don’t want two presidents at one wedding! All the secret service, guests going through (metal detectors), all the gifts being torn apart …”
The episode airs Thursday, July 29, 11 AM ET on ABC.
