Politico reports:

First Lady Michelle Obama said that the president “will shake his groove thing” at a Latin music concert being held at White House on Monday. Gloria Estefan, Ricky Martin and Romeo Santos are among the artists lined up to perform.

But are today’s horrific events leading to 13 dead at the Washington Navy Yard serious enough for the White House to cancel this Latin music concert scheduled for tonight?

The Washington Nationals have canceled their baseball game, so will the White House follow suit?

Certainly President Obama must realize that images of him “shaking his groove thing” are totally inappropriate after the day’s events which are still unfolding at this writing.

Does anyone want to bet that the show will go on after the President gives a little solemn talk followed by a moment of silence for the victims?

After all, a national tragedy just a few miles away is probably not enough for this White House to keep Ricky Martin from performing  LivinLa Vida Loca.

Update (Bryan): The White House has canceled tonight’s party.

CORRECTION....Just cancelled. They're not totally tone deaf, I guess.

Last report is that the event is a GO.

The White House flag is flying at half staff, but indoors it's FIESTA TIME!

@arishapiro : The White House announces it's canceling tonight's Latin music event in light of the shooting...just as the musicians arrive at the WH gate.

Obama finally realized in the EARLY EVENING that the optics were not good.

Salsa party after this? Even Obama eventually figured it out.
