Who was that masked man?
It was Steven Spielberg, looking positively Indiana Jones-like as he showed up fashionably late, at least compared to other guests, at Martha’s Vineyard Airport Saturday for President Obama’s 60th birthday bash.
Spielberg wore a fedora-style hat, a tan vest, white shirt and a black mask when he walked off a private jet solo and into a waiting SUV Saturday afternoon.
Spielberg will join other celebs including Jennifer Hudson, Tom Hanks, George Clooney, Beyonce and Jay Z, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen and Gayle King at the former first family’s sprawling $12 million 29-acre property for the gala party.
Spielberg, 74, is a longtime friend and associate of Obama. Obama awarded him the Medal of Freedom, the country’s highest honor, in 2015, saying Spielberg’s “stories have shaped America’s story.”
Spielberg will join other guests outdoors under what aerial photos showed to be a massive tent flanked by smaller staging tents, outdoor furniture, a dance floor and a large raised stage with speakers and technical equipment. The party was scheduled to start at 7PM.
The festivities were initially set to feature 475 guests and 200 workers, but an Obama spokeswoman said Saturday the event had been “scaled back significantly” after an outbreak of the Delta variant in nearby Cape Cod.
Obama’s decision followed a report by The Post, which cited a source as saying the former president was creating a public health “nightmare” by trying to get nearly 700 people to his party amid a national surge of the variant and new restrictions.
