Don’t be my guest, Obama tells actress Susan Sarandon

Susan Sarandon

White House security staff have foiled a carefully laid plan to allow the Presidential threshold to be crossed by that most dangerous of beasts — a 65-year-old actress in possession of some left-wing principles.

The woman in question is Susan Sarandon — Oscar-winner, mother-of-three, Unicef goodwill ambassador and serial endorser of causes such as gay rights, social equality and Aids awareness.

Ms Sarandon claims to have been struck off the guest list for a White House event next week.

The star believes the decision was taken after an extensive surveillance operation. She has twice used Freedom of Information laws to access her FBI file, and claims it reveals her phone conversations are routinely monitored.
