The guest list for the most talked about wedding of the summer is rumored to be somewhere in the neighborhood of 400 to 500 people, but when the father of the bride is a former President and her mother is Secretary of State, it’s safe to say that list had to be whittled down a bit.
We already know one very prominent guest who will reportedly not be there, and that’s President Barack Obama. (But the President seems to understand. He told the hosts of “The View" Thursday, “I’m letting you know now: Y’all probably will not be invited to Sasha or Malia’s wedding, either.”)
Joining Obama on the uninvited list is John Catsimatidis, owner of Red Apple and Gristedes supermarkets who, according to the New York Times, has raised millions for the Clintons.
While Catsimatidis said he hoped to be invited, he pretty much figured out he didn’t make the cut when, two weeks away from the event, he still hadn’t received an invitation.
Over at the New York Daily News, Norton Mezvinsky, the supposed lone uncle of Clinton’s soon-to-be-husband, Marc Mezvinsky, told the paper that he, too, has been left off the guest list.
A rep for Al and Tipper Gore reportedly piped up to say in a statement that the recently separated couple also won’t be at the wedding, but it isn’t clear whether or not they were invited.
