Barack Obama’s 60th-birthday bash was touted to be safe, as its attendees were said to be highly “sophisticated” and doubly “vaccinated”. Today we find out that it was, in reality, another run-of-the-mill super spreader event. Nothing special, just your regular vaccine-shedding affair not unlike those happening among society’s less refined citizens.

The Boston Herald reports: Massachusetts health officials on Monday reported a spike of 2,587 coronavirus cases from over the weekend, as COVID hospitalizations also kept rising across the state.
The jump of more than 2,500 new virus cases during the past three days continues the trend of climbing infection counts amid the more highly contagious delta variant.
The seven-day average of daily cases is now 780 infections, which is more than 12 times the record-low average of 64 daily cases in late June.
The test positivity rate has now increased to 2.72%, a spike from 0.31% in late June.
Bay State hospitalizations jumped by 43 patients over the weekend, bringing the total of COVID patients to 314 patients. That is nearly four times the record-low total of 80 COVID patients on July 4.
The seven-day average of hospitalizations is now 263 patients, up from the average of 85 patients in mid-July.
The state also reported three COVID deaths over the weekend, bringing the state’s total recorded death toll to 18,098.
The seven-day average of daily deaths is now 1.6, slightly up from the record-low daily death average of 1.1 in mid-July.
Nearly 4.4 million people in Massachusetts have been fully vaccinated.
Just as facts don’t care about your feelings, Covid doesn’t give a rip about your level of sophistication or your vaccination status either.

Il Donaldo mocks the fake news media for refusing to take the Obamas to task for foregoing their super-spreader event.
If the fake news media actually did their job…
