Salahis: 'We have stayed low-key'

Posted: 05:12 PM ET

By Patrick Gavin & Anne Schroeder Mullins


On Thursday night, Tareq and Michaele Salahi made a rare public appearance at District bar in Adams Morgan for a "Hollywood vs. Bollywood" party hosted by nightlife blogger Kelly Ann Collins. POLITICO had a chance to catch up with the couple, who became household names after they crashed the White House's state dinner in November. 

"This is our first public appearance in Washington, D.C., since November," said Tareq Salahi. "We're here to celebrate the America's Polo Cup." The event marked the beginning of polo season and started "the countdown to the USA vs. India match in June," according to an invite. (You'll recall that the state dinner the Salahis crashed was intended to honor the prime minister of India.)

"We have stayed quiet; we have stayed low key," said Tareq. "That's what we committed to do, and we've honored the commitment we've made with ourselves and with our counsel and with others to stay quiet and not discuss things that weren't really necessary to discuss."

Not that they had entirely put the state dinner in the past. In fact, Tareq was sporting White House cufflinks.

We had to ask: Would they do it all over again, given that the crashing stunt made them famous?

No way.

I am a 100% Disabled VietNam Veteran and i am disgusted with Republicans and others who critizize our President and call him names. Sarah Palin is not a person who should critizize a whole government, she puts down our President and call him names and i for one cannot stand her. Newt is another and so on. We the people elected our President and just because the Republicans did not get their way they act like TWO year old. Bricks and Stones will break your bones, but words will also harm you.
Sick, Sick, Sick of Republicans.

Didn't it used to be treason to act the way our political groups treat each other. I believe the way our President is being treated is disgraceful. We the people voted him into office and yet Republicans cannot quit acting like he is not their President. O'Bama is The President of The United States and deserves respect, he is doing the hardest job on the planet. I see now that the party's cannot work together so we the people should do something about it if we want any work to get done.
I am Sick of Sarah Palin, Newt, and The Republican Party, they are disgraceful.

The democrats treated George Bush one hundred times worse than Obama is being treated, so quit complaining.

If these 2 wannabes had the chance they'd do it in a minute. the reason they've stayed quiet up to they don't want to take the chance they might have to plead the 5th again!!!!

To take a quote from an old movie – these two posers are nothing but "a couple of mules in horses' harness."
