  1. I just came across that Vanity Fair article a couple of days ago when I Googled to see what President Trump’s White House plans were for the fourth. I was curious because I remember how the Obummers always had all these singers and celebs there for a party and fireworks. Plus, it’s their daughter’s birthday so they always had all their friends and family there for a long weekend.

    President Trump’s plans for the day are quite different, thank goodness. Vanity Fair hates Trump, of course, but here it is:

    On July 4, 2016, the South Lawn of the Obama White House hosted a star-studded patriotic event, complete with the musical stylings of __Kendrick Lamar, Janelle Monáe, and Bruno Mars. President Obama gave a speech in honor of the U.S.O. as the First Lady high-fived fans in the front row. Attendees watched fireworks shoot over the National Mall. This kind of fanfare was pretty common in the Obama White House over the years, where Beyoncé and Blue Ivy showed up at the White House Easter Egg Roll and Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds were on hand for State Dinners. But just months after the Trump White House’s first Easter Egg Roll suffered disorganization and small crowd sizes, the first Independence Day of the Trump era is not shaping up to be nearly the star-packed, musical event of the Obama years.

    On Independence Day, the White House will invite armed service members and their families for a picnic on the South lawn, Stephanie Grisham, the First Lady’s director of communications and special assistant to the president, confirmed in an e-mail to Vanity Fair. Later that evening, Grisham said, White House staff and their families will be invited to watch fireworks. These mellow festivities will take place after President Trump returns on Monday from what is reportedly a golf trip to his club in New Jersey.
