WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- The First Family is in Westchester County.

The 44nd President of the United States, accompanied by his wife Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha, touched down at Westchester County Airport in White Plains for the second time in the span of 28 hours on Saturday at around 6 p.m.

The Obamas will be attending the wedding of his personal chef, Sam Kass, and MSNBC talk show host Alex Wagner at the Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills. 

Blue Hill at Stone Barns is on Route 448 in between routes 9 and Route 117 and the area has had a heavy police presence throughout the day. It is closed to the public Saturday.

The Obamas will be flying back to the White House from Westchester Airport immediately after attending the wedding and reception Saturday night, at approximately 11 p.m. 

Obama, unaccompanied by his family, appeared at private fundraisers in New Rochelle and Purchase on Friday, with his motorcade leading to a no-fly zone at Westchester Airport and causing delays on major highways in the county during getaway day for the Labor Day Weekend.

The New Rochelle fundraiser was at the home of Greenwood Company CEO Camilo Patrignani, the Head of Americas at Libra Group, and included a small amount of guests.

Wall Street financier Robert Wolf hosted the Purchase fundraiser which included about 10 times as many guests, approximately 250, including Congresswoman Nita Lowey.

Attendees at both events contributed up to the maximum amount of $32,400.

republicans are filth

Stop whining. Man's been running your Country for you for the past 6 years. What the hell have you clowns been doing?
Hating it with a PASSION!!

Add to that the traffic problems he creates. Friday of a big holiday weekend. I am sure those are the roads appreciated their delays.

How is it that we taxpayers foot the bill for the First Family to fly on AF1 to attend a private affair? It's bad enough we are soaked for every fundraiser he flies off to (disguised as a speech so it's taxpayer paid, not the DNC).

It's been reported his plane departed HPN at 1:30 this morning, after the honor code curfew that airport keeps. Guess curfews are for little people!

Looks like we are beginning to learn who the 1%er's really are !

Seems as though they are all Democrats, who would have thought !

This fund raiser probably got a load of our tax money for his "goodie-two-shoes solar projects". Now he is giving our tax money it back to his benefactor.

In response to Jlombard, I am well aware of what Obama has been doing for the past six years, and it hasn't been representing me. I consider him to be a complete failure, both domestically and in the field of foreign relations. I also view him as a man who has no respect for the truth or the rule of law, who will do whatever he can to undermine the Constitution. I will give him credit for being a highly skilled con artist. It's really sickening how the Daily Voice is continually fawning over him.

The Bedford Daily Voice seems to suggest that the people of Westchester should feel somehow honored that Obama, at great expense to the taxpayers, turns our airport into a no-fly zone and blocks our roads and highways on one of the busiest weekends of the year so he can attend fund raisers and a private wedding. It would be bad enough, but at least understandable, if he was doing something vaguely connected with his official duties. The little dictator, with his pen and his phone, cares very little about official duties. His only interests are golf, fund raisers and signing executive orders. He is a disgrace to the office he holds. I really don't know if the country can survive 2.5 more years of his mal-administration.

Leftist media is the Praetorian Guard for this clown. Obama is a media creation. They will never admit their mistake.

who cares???

who cares???

The chefs wife-to-be employed by MSNBC - a significant number of Obamas staff is married to/ related to those in the liberal media. Any wonder his incompetence is never covered by the press?

You are telling us that there are still 250 stupid people giving their money away to a lost cause. Now that really amplifies the saying , you can't fix stupid. .

I agree Francis bunch of desperate moronic people. ..on another note why the heck are we paying for a personal chef for this colossal failure
