The President and the First Lady had a stacked guest list
The Obamas threw their farewell party at the White House Friday night, and by the guest list alone, it looks like it was litty!
We guessed that President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama would host some big names–a mix of major donors and famous friends — but it definitely appears that this was the party to RSVP.
Those in attendance included George and Amal Clooney, Robert De Niro, George Lucas, Meryl Streep, David Letterman, and Paul McCartney to name a few.
And there was also a heavy dose of black excellence — of course!

The Obamas told a young fan in December that they had been planning a farewell party, but that it would a “grown-up” affair, PEOPLE reports.
“We are going to have a big party before we leave office, but I’ll be honest with you it’s going to be after your bedtime,” the president told the fan.
Photos of the actual event are few because guests had to leave their phones at the door. But we know it must have been a great time since the Obamas know how to throw a good party!
