The Obamas love the spotlight.
That is especially true of Michelle Obama.
But now she’s wishing one leaked video was never made public.
A leaked video emerged of the former First Lady partying it up with controversial singer Beyonce and the performer’s sister, Solange.
The Daily Mail reports:
“Never-before seen footage of Beyoncé‘s private birthday party was leaked online Friday and former first lady Michelle Obama definitely got an invite.
Two videos were posted to The Beyhive’s fan account on Twitter.
The first video showed the R&B superstar, her sister Solange, and the former first lady saying ‘Bye Felicia!’ to what appears to be a cellphone camera.
Solange and Queen Bey were wearing party glasses as they all waved to the camera.
In another video, Beyoncé’s daughter, Blue Ivy, was seen dancing for her mom and dad Jay-Z.
Shortly after the video was leaked, the Beyhive account tweeted a confirmation that the video was taken at the singer’s party last year.
It’s not the first time Queen Bey and Mrs Obama joined forces to have a little fun, not to mention implement programs that were a part of the former first lady’s initiatives. “
The video poses two problems for Democrats.
It again marries the most popular Democrats in America to liberal entertainers who clash culturally with the voters whom the party desperately needs to win back.
Beyonce generated a massive controversy with her Black Lives Matter theme during the Super Bowl 50 halftime performance.
She and her dancers were decked out in black in a tribute to the Black Panther party.
Beyonce also performed the song “Formation” which itself is a rallying cry for the Black Lives Matter movement.
Critics blasted the halftime show as racist and anti-cop.
Billboard magazine had reported at the time:
“Former New York City mayor and failed Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani spoke to Fox News Monday about the performance, which since airing has drawn criticism from some quarters for a perceived Black Panther salute and homage. (A rep for the singer declined to comment to Billboard about Guiliani’s remarks.)
“I think it was outrageous,” Giuliani said on Fox News Monday about Beyonce’s performance. “The halftime show I thought was ridiculous anyway. I don’t know what the heck it was. A bunch of people bouncing around and all strange things. It was terrible.”
“This is football, not Hollywood, and I thought it was really outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers who are the people who protect her and protect us, and keep us alive,” he continued. “And what we should be doing in the African-American community, and all communities, is build up respect for police officers. And focus on the fact that when something does go wrong, okay. We’ll work on that. But the vast majority of police officers risk their lives to keep us safe….let’s have decent, wholesome entertainment.”
Voters in Middle America were repulsed by the Democrats attachment to celebrity and identity politics.
Donald Trump won Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin in large part because Democrats were culturally disconnected from those voters.
And a video that captures Michelle Obama living it up with a pro-Black Lives Matter celebrity only reinforces that image.
