President Barack Obama made a visit to the ladies of “The View” Wednesday afternoon to tape an episode that airs Thursday. And although all five hosts were on hand with a variety of questions about his tactics for solving the administration’s biggest problems, there was a burning question the hosts could not resist asking: Will the president be at Chelsea Clinton’s wedding?
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 …”
Then host Barbara Walters asked directly if he was even invited to the nuptials, which are being held in upstate New York this weekend. The president said no.
“I was not invited to the wedding,” he said. “because I think Hillary and Bill, properly, want to keep this thing for Chelsea and her soon-to-be husband.”
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 complete interview airs Thursday at 11 a.m. ET on ABC. (Source MSNBC)
