While his wife is off in Europe spending hundreds of thousands of American tax dollars on herself this week, Barack Obama has been off on a little trip of his own.
According to Daily Mail, Obama headed to Beverly Hills last night for a top secret dinner with some of his mega-donors like Steven Spielberg and DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg. The secret dinner happened after Obama attended a Democratic Party fundraiser at the home of Tyler Perry.
While the dinner was not on Obama’s public schedule, the press caught Spielberg and Katzenberg quietly leaving the president’s hotel late last night. Each of the Hollywood power players contributed $1 million to Obama’s reelection campaign in 2012.
Keep in mind, just 24 hours before this Hollywood gathering, nine people were shot dead at a church in Charleston in a tragedy Obama was said to be “devastated” over. Clearly, the president wasn’t sad enough to postpone a dinner with his A-list celebrity friends…
This is the second time in less than a week that Obama has shirked his official duties to party with Hollywood celebrities. Last weekend, he hosted a secret concert at the White House that featured performances by Prince and Steve Wonder. The private party was attended by celebrities like Halle Berry and Ciara.
The White House declined to comment when asked about the dinner with Spielberg and Katzenberg. Obama has always loved having friends in Hollywood, and while the entire country has turned their back on him, he appears to be trying to keep his A-listers close.
