But GoodAsYou and Towleroad were disappointed. Minutes before the stream was supposed to start, the embed code disappeared and the announcement was deleted.
Jeremy Hooper at GoodAsYou:
"Okay, so this is really weird. Earlier today, the White House proudly announced that tonight's LGBT reception would be livestreamed, just as they stream just about every other WH event:
"Which is why we embedded it here for you to watch. We were excited to bring it to you. Ready to hear the next evolutionary step.
"But then a short time before the event, without either word or apparent reason, the White House removed the above announcement from White House Live. Then, come 5:45PM: No live stream. The code we had been given (at the sharelink, above) was inactive."
This is not just weird, but extremely suspicious.
