WASHINGTON, D.C. -- President Barack Obama says he didn’t make the guest list for Chelsea Clinton’s wedding.
In an interview which aired today on ABC’s daytime talk show “The View,” Obama said he wasn’t invited because former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wanted the event to be about their daughter and her future husband.
Obama says that’s probably for the best, joking that it will be tough enough to have one president at the wedding.
Clinton will wed investment banker Marc Mezvinsky on Saturday evening in Rhinebeck, N.Y., which is about 90 miles north of New York City.
In more Obama news from Thursday’s interview, the President revealed that his iPod’s playlist might not get high approval numbers from his daughters, Sasha and Malia.
“I’ve got Jay-Z on there. I’ve got Frank Sinatra on there. I’ve got Maria Callas on there,” Obama said when asked about the music on his MP3 player. “I do not have Justin Bieber on there… but I have met Justin Bieber, he came to sing at the White House. He’s a very nice young man.”
