Tucker Carlson: You can be sophisticated or a superspreader

'Tucker Carlson Tonight' host discusses difference in media coverage between Obama's birthday party and Sturgis Motorcycle Rally

You thought you had a great weekend. Did you see what Barack Obama did? It was way more fun than anything that happened at your house Saturday night. For his 60th birthday, Obama threw himself a party at his estate on Martha’s Vineyard, off the coast of Massachusetts.

Obama’s place is on the ocean, naturally, but unlike your oceanfront property in, say, Destin, Obama’s has been declared eternally exempt from the devastating rise in sea levels that will inevitably accompany the existential crisis of climate change, which by the way you caused. So no matter what happens to the global climate, Obama will be safe there, even if you continue to eat steak or use air conditioning, both of which will soon be banned.

Ever sensitive to the feelings of his subjects, Obama did his best to downplay the size and opulence of Saturday’s event. His PR team did not mention the hundreds of servants who’d be there. The party, they assured us, would be nothing at all like something King Farouk might have hosted in his later years.

MSNBC'S JOY REID CLAIMS THOSE ANGRY AT MASKLESS OBAMA PARTY PICTURES ARE ONLY MAD BECAUSE THEY WEREN'T INVITED

No resemblance. Barack Obama’s party was merely an intimate gathering of "family and friends." And in the end, that’s exactly what it was. The thing is, as you can see from the pictures, Barack Obama has an awful lot of very close friends. What’s interesting is who they are, and who they’re not.

Joe Biden wasn’t at the party. That’s weird, considering Biden and Obama are like brothers, as close as two straight men can be, as Biden himself has told us many times. If you’ve been watching carefully through the years, you may have noticed that Obama has never made that claim, he’s never said a lot about liking Joe Biden. Now we know he doesn’t. So who does Barack Obama like?

In a word: Celebrities. Obama likes celebrities. Lots and lots of celebrities. It was like the red carpet scene outside a lesser awards show on Saturday night: Oprah, Jay-Z, Gayle King, Tom Hanks, George Clooney, as well as a whole bunch of other people you wouldn’t recognize if you’re over 30 and don’t live on social media. There were a ton of them. And it was kind of a surprise to see it, because Barack Obama is a genius. We can be certain of that because we’ve heard it claimed as fact for almost 15 years now. And yet we now know that when Barack Obama relaxes at his house, it’s not with intellectuals, or even with people who can read books.

It’s with the kids he watches on TikTok. Obama passes around some high-fives, throws on a pair of beige slip-on shoes, and the world’s only grey Hawaiian shirt, and hits the dance floor. It’s party time. But wait a second, you ask. A grey Hawaiian shirt? Is that even legal? When you’re Barack Obama, it is. The normal rules don’t apply to you.

Remember that this is the man whose staff referred to him as "Black Jesus," totally without sarcasm. So, when you’re parting the waters and healing the sick, you........
