But, of course! The White House-Hollywood industrial complex doesn’t play by pesky rules. Sequester Shmequester! Michelle Obama has birthday party planning to do.
Shorter Obama White House: shut down the tours, but get Adele and Beyonce to sing at FLOTUS' 50th birthday.

More from Breitbart.com:
The same week that President Obama’s administration announced that due to sequestration, White House tours would be cancelled, sources at the White House announced that it would be hosting megastars Adele and Beyonce at Michelle’s 50th birthday party next year. “America’s First Lady will be holding a huge celebrity-packed party for her birthday at the White House next year and, as she adores Adele and Beyonce, she has asked them both to sing,” the source told the UK Daily Mail. The source did say that “The Obamas will pay Adele’s expenses as it’s a private party, not a State one.”
But will they pay all the expenses of the party? Security arrangements? Food? Cleanup? White House parties are expensive affairs.
There goes the surprise. I was going to have Adele and Beyonce sing at my 50th b-day. #FirstLadyat50
