President Obama

Mysteriously Cancels

Hollywood Leg of L.A. Visit

7/22/2014 2:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

President Obama Cancels
The mystery grows over President Obama's visit to Hollywood Wednesday ... which we've learned has now been officially cancelled.  

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... LAPD brass notified its Hollywood division an hour ago ... they got a call from the Secret Service saying Obama would no longer be coming to Hollywood ... although he is coming to L.A.

TMZ broke the story ... the plan was for Obama to show up at the El Capitan Theatre at 3 PM Wednesday and he would be there for an hour.  LAPD sources told us they had been notified about the plan and were ready, but just an hour ago they were told -- without explanation -- to stand down.

We also reported ABC sources told us the purpose of Obama's Hollywood visit was to appear on Jimmy Kimmel's show, which tapes right next door to the El Capitan.  Kimmel's people told us it was not true ... Obama would not be on the show.

We have contacted the White House multiple times about the Hollywood visit ... but we never got a response.


No Avatar


gee, I wonder if it's because TMZ reported his itinerary to the point he could no longer travel with safety.

He is afraid of all the Jews who own Hollywood. They are after him for allowing the FAA to cancel trips to Israel.

Tmz, your sources today is really pulling things out of thin air. Michelle & The President both said that they will either stay in Washington, D.C. If Shasa wants to finish school here or go back to Chicago since Their eldest daughter will be in College. Y'all got fooled again!

He's the president of the United States of America. He's working on many different local and foreign issues everyday. There's no secret reason he had to cancel his trip. Nice try TMZ, but sorry your writers aren't clever enough to spin a story.

You left-wing geniuses at TMZ don't even read the news, do you? Obama scheduled to appear at a fundraiser at Shonda Rimes' house. However, LA street artists have hung posters all over Hollywood featuring Obama, the "Scandal" logo, and the phrase "Don't Be An #*******" (references to a speech Rimes made).

Maybe TMZ was wrong again and he was never going to be on Kimmel. Wouldn't be the first time. Bieber is going to jail, Lil Wayne and Rick Ross are close to death, Jwow is lil Kim,

Not mysteriously stupid, he called it off because he needs to at least pretend he's doing his job with everything going to $hit.

I guess someone must have told him it wasn't a fundraiser. Or maybe he thought he would be tricked into going over to Murietta Ca to deal with that little immigration problem we have all been hearing so much about.
