Revealed: Obama Hosted Top Secret 'Wonderland'-Themed Hollywood Extravaganza At White House

The White House is pushing back against claims from a new tell-all book that staff kept an extravagant, Hollywood-created Halloween Party under wraps due to fear it would create imaging problems.

White House spokesman Eric Schultz said Sunday the event, which was decorated by Tim Burton and featured Johnny Depp in his Mad Hatter role from Burton’s acclaimed “Alice in Wonderland,” was held for local children from the Washington D.C.-area and for hundreds of military families.
