Biden bans media from covering granddaughter’s White House wedding
Vice President Biden said Tuesday that media outlets will not be allowed to cover the granddaughter of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s wedding, according to The Associated Press.
In a statement made on Twitter, Clinton, her daughter Chelsea and Chelsea’s husband, Marc Mezvinsky said the White House was in the process of reviewing media coverage of the wedding.
According to the AP, Clinton’s statement was the first time she had publicly discussed the wedding, which took place in April at Washington’s St. Moritz on the Potomac in Maryland. The Associated Press also reported Mezvinsky told the AP he would “probably” attend the wedding, which he described as small.
The White House has issued a statement saying Secretary Clinton is attending the wedding, the AP reported.
The wedding was a first for Chelsea Clinton. The first daughter was unable to make the ceremony and was in the hospital in New York City.
“Hillary and I are very excited to join our granddaughter, Ashley, and her family in the White House,” Mezvinsky said. “It is an honor to be present for her wedding.”
He is not married to Chelsea Clinton. He is married to Amy Satterfield, a former White House communications aide, according to the Post.
The president has a son from a previous marriage. They were photographed walking hand-in-hand in 2009 on the first day of school. The White House said Tuesday that they are a couple. The Post also reported the White House said it would not confirm or deny whether the president was seeing any other woman while the couple is under scrutiny in the Russia investigation.
The Post also reported Vice President Biden and the president attended the wedding. The Post also reported that White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough and White House Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri were also in attendance.
