FLASHBACK: Remember When the White House Threw a Secret 'Alice in Wonderland' Party?


It’s Mad Hatter Day, a celebration of the Alice in Wonderland character that happens every October 6 (or 10/6).

On this Throwback Thursday, here’s a classic Trifecta segment from their PJTV days looking back at the time the Obama White House threw a secret Alice in Wonderland party for Halloween.


Tim Burton was there, director of a 2010 film based on the children’s story. Johnny Depp was also there, in character as the Mad Hatter.

Bill Whittle, Scott Ott and Stephen Green unpack a lot here: a lavish party on the taxpayer dime during a recession, the media’s silence about the event, rigged White House visitor logs and much more.

Do stories like this make you glad that President Barack Obama’s White House term will soon end?

Tune into the segment, and let us know in the comments section!
