I guess the White House will have to manufacture another West Coast appearance for the failed president next month, just to make it look like he’s working. Fresh off his money haul at the George C. Looney compound last night Obama is now scheduling a fundraiser at a gay event in June.
President Obama’s decision to support gay marriage this week is paying off in a big way with the LGBT community in Hollywood.
Obama is expected to attend an LGBT gala in Los Angeles on June 6, where ticket prices range from $1,250 to $25,000 apiece. As part of the same trip, Obama is also expected to attend a fundraiser hosted by Ryan Murphy, the co-creator of the show “Glee,” and his fiance David Miller.
Like the fundraising dinner hosted by actor George Clooney on Thursday night in Los Angeles, which raked in $15 million, the dinner is expected to bring in millions of dollars for Obama’s reelection campaign. Obama’s endorsement of same-sex marriage on Wednesday has prompted a slew of big-dollar donations from the gay community.
It won’t be long until these people refer to him as our first gay president.
Whatever. They’ll all wake up to lighter bankrolls and President-elect Romney come November.
