George Clooney's Obama Fundraiser - Party Highlights!

George Clooney's Obama Fundraiser - Party Highlights!

President Obama waves as he steps off Air Force One after landing at LAX Airport on Thursday (May 10) in Los Angeles.

The President was on his way to George Clooney‘s highly anticipated fundraiser event, which is said to have raised as much as $15 million for his reelection campaign.

Here are some highlights from the party released by the White House:

  • Attendees included George, his girlfriend Stacy Keibler, Robert Downey Jr., Diane Von Furstenberg, Barbra Streisand, James Brolin, Tobey Maguire, Billy Crystal, Jack Black, Salma Hayek, and party host Jeffrey Katzenberg.
  • Guests had to pass through two security checkpoints before being driven up Clooney‘s driveway by golf cart. Dinner was served at round tables inside a clear tent on his basketball court.
  • President Obama gave a 19 minute speech. “I want to thank Clooney for letting us use his basketball court. This man has been talking smack about his basketball game, ever since I’ve known him.” He said he and the actor had known each other for quite a while, and that famous Hope picture of him was actually culled from a picture of him and Clooney when the latter was advocating for Darfur. “We struck up a friendship. This is the first time that George Clooney has actually been photoshopped out of a picture,” Obama said to laughs. “Never happened before, will never happen again.”
  • Obama joked about going grey. “People have commented on the fact I’ve got gray hair now. There was a blog post about look how wrinkly Obama is getting. [Laughter]. Sort of distressing. George doesn’t have to go through these things.”

Sounds like it was a great event!

it’s actually really quite sickening and scary to see just how much celebrity and politics (especially obamas administration) have come together, they are both two extremely separate entities and should remain such. this whole george clooney-obama sycophancy thing is really sickening, like please give me a break. its all about money and the power, i guess they are just doing what they do best.

I’m thinking these quotes are actually paraphrases. The poor grammar doesn’t sound like Obama.

What perfect timing for his “I support same sex marriage” speech. Votes – it is all about the votes.

ohspareme remember Ronald Regan…THE ACTOR who became president. Oh wait he was white so it’s all good in your eyes huh.

Clooney is pretentious, controlling & obnoxious. Any man who is so callous as to pretend he’s in relationships with unattractive cheap bimbos with whom he doesn’t have any chemistry, just because he’s so insecure about his image, is nothing but a loser & not admirable at all.
And I bet it was his suggestion to get Obama to state the same sex marriage support. Perfectly timed with the lousy PR stunt dinner.

FOREWARD- off a cliff @ 05/11/2012 at 9:54 am

heading us right into a NWO .Thanks cLooney

Obama is using gay people.

@IMO:
I do not believe it was Clooney’s idea “to get Obama to state the same sex marriage support.”

It was depressing to see the headlines the day after the event which makes it appear as if George Clooney is Obama’s *****.

I do not believe it was George Clooney’s idea “to get Obama to state the same sex marriage support.”

I think the idea was President Obama’s and/or his team.

It was depressing for me to see the headlines the day after the event which makes it appear as if George Clooney is Obama’s bit*h.

To hell with war and the economy. The Obama’s have nice smiles.

Crux of the Matter @ 05/11/2012 at 10:23 am

@FOREWARD- off a cliff: George Clooney is a member of the Bohemian Grove, therefore he’s already part of this NWO. He’s an insatiable, corrupt & mean-spirited person.

the REAL LMAO @ 05/11/2012 at 10:29 am

and crux of the matter is jealous of George Clooney because he can’t fill a stadium anymore, even if his life depended upon it and no one even remembers his name anymore or his music….SOUR GRAPES PERHAPS????

@Crux of the Matter: don’t pay attention to the nuisance Kirstie Alley posting on #18. It’s her ruse to say you’re some singer. And she always parrots idioms she leeches off other smarter posters…. sigh…..

I agree with you, George Clooney is a prominent member of the Bohemian Grove. He’s attends their ritualistic all men meetings and often goes with David Gergen.
The fact is he’s a lily-livered pathetic coward. A complete assshole!
Clooney is cursed.
Political anathema for anyone.

Wow! The POTUS is a vain as woman. Yes, Mr. President, we are all stresses out and getting old. You should not be wasting time reading blogs about your wrinkles……

Gossipgirl @ 05/11/2012 at 10:54 am

And oh, PS George really needs to come out of the closet; it’s safe now George, you can do it. I know you are crushing on the president, but Michelle will never let it happen!

Gossipgirl @ 05/11/2012 at 10:55 am

@Becky: Excuse me…that “actor” was elected Governor of California. His legacy speaks for itself so I need not say more about your ridiculous attempt at comparison.

the REAL LMAO @ 05/11/2012 at 11:16 am

ohhh look the aging old rocker is coming out of the closet on the internet! He’s posing as women on JJ and bashing Clooney cuz he’s so jealous that he can’t get any interest in a “come back tour”….NOT even if he exposes himself on stage! ahahahahahahaha

the REAL LMAO @ 05/11/2012 at 11:29 am

A swan song for your many, many personalities…always boils down to the same source and the same reason for the “war of attrition” you’ve been waging on the internet…does the fam know what you get up to, I wonder now?
Your swan song!

You’re slipping, fatso.
