A Martha’s Vineyard photographer quietly deleted photographs of President Obama dancing during a birthday party after they went viral online.
Editorial and fine art photographer Elizabeth Cecil posted two photos of the president on her Instagram account from the party that was closed to the press.
The photos featured President Obama dancing and one of him offering a birthday toast to Ann Jordan at a party at the Farm Neck Golf Club.
The party included about 150 guests, including former President Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary Clinton.
The photo of the president dancing was discovered on Instagram early Thursday morning by Republican National Committee War Room staffer Elliott Schwartz, who posted it on Twitter.

After the Weekly Standard featured the dancing photo in an article which hit the Drudge Report, the photos were quickly deleted.
Phone calls to Cecil were not answered, and she has not responded to a request for comment from Breitbart News about the photos.
