George Clooney Hosting $6 Million Fundraising Dinner For Barack Obama

| Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaGeorge Clooney

George Clooney Barack Obama fundraising dinner

George Clooney has known Barack Obama since before he became president and has only become a stronger supporter as Obama's first term progresses.

On top of attending two major Hollywood fundraisers for the president's re-election campaign earlier this year, the actor is partnering with DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg to host his OWN dinner that aims to raise $6 million!

The extravagant dinner will cost guests $40,000 a plate as they mix and mingle with the most powerful man in the country at Clooney's El Lay home.

Maybe the actor will even share some more campaign advice with his powerful acquaintance. During an interview on Meet The Press, the Ides of March director said:

"The Democrats are just very poor, in general, at explaining what it is, when they accomplished something. I think they’re pretty bad at it, and Republicans are very good at it. If I was a Republican, and Obama was a Republican, I would be selling all of the, you know, he saved the auto industry and he got Osama bin Laden. He passed a health care bill that no one could pass — if that was a Republican issue. I would be able to sell his presidency as a very successful one."

And that's exactly what Clooney's doing because 150 Hollywood donors are expected to join him at his house for the lavish event. If we get a a 95% discount, we'll consider attending too. Ha!

    Just proves that some people ( celebrities ) don't have any common sense &throw their money wherever they can get a tax deduction! What a complete & total ASS to support O'Bama the Arab!

    America’s Debt Is Greater than Entire Eurozone’s and U.K.’s Combined Debt.

    Re: sitin – ummmm you seem very confused. Democrats are in favor of higher taxes for people with higher incomes (which would include George Clooney). Maybe you should learn some more information before making idiotic, racist comments.

    It's sad that a terrible black monkey thats a terrible president will probably win again..solely because he has hollywood in his corner. It's sad that we allow Hollywood to have so much power.

    Good plan George and all the Hollywood supporters.

    Re: Lela – He gets a tax deduction for hosting a charity event, is what sittin is implying, he is not referring to the general Democratic viewpoints. Maybe you should learn more information before making idiotic comments.

    I'm sure that Kim Kardashian is right on the top of the list. Nothing but the best for our president.



  10. 10

    he is for the poor

    Hollywood liberal 1%ers are the biggest hypocrites in the country.



  12. 12

    big party i'll bet there was a lot of the 99% there



  13. 13

    So disappointed in George - bad enough he's liberal but supporting and raising money for Obama - shameful. Wish actors would keep their politics to themselves.

    It's soooo annoying when celebrities openly support politicians so they can sway there fans to vote accordingly. One thing everyone should be aware of is that you can't tax away our growing debt. Let's punish the private sector and homeowners that worked for what they have, while we government employees get all the benefits. That includes obama, we get to see him go on vacations and hang out with celebrities, while people that live in the real world have to go to work everyday, just to be slapped in the face with our governments hand asking us to fork over OUR money, so they can spend it on themselves and watch the debt climb.
    obviously I'm dissatisfied.



  15. 15

    *their fans
    oops



  16. 16

    Sorry George, like you a lot as an actor, but not voting for Obama a second time, he cost me my job after 22 years.



  17. 17

    what…. I thought I heard the 1% were all republicans… how can the 99% afford this party?

    Sooo disappointed with George Clooney. Our economy has tanked since Obama took office and George has the gall to lie in bed with the guy who got us in this mess. Shame on him!

    Re: Pisky – No he's not. He's a racist idiot. As you surely are.



  22. 22

    Re: teeter totter – He did not. Bush did.



  23. 23

    Re: Verna – Your economy tanked because odf Bush. Don't you people know how to READ ? Or THINK ?

    Re: overthere – did u learn this by watching mslsd???



  25. 25

    I'm in!



  26. 26

    Good for Clooney… he has my respect, as does the President. Everyone else on here (besides a few who can think for themselves and is not drinking the haterade) either can't read, has no deductive reasoning skills, or just has a low IQ and well.. nothing can save you with THAT :) FACT: the economy has improved since O took office, unemployment is going down, the DOW has doubled, and Obama is not a Muslim (projection much?). Its one thing if you don't like the man, but do yourself a favor and don't make up outright LIES, intelligent independent thinkers can see right through it.

    Re: overthere – When Obama took office gas was at $1.78/gallon. Now it's over $4.00! Who's the idiot? Stop blaming Bush for all the problems our Country has now. Obama had 4 years to "change" things. Is it working for you? Get your head out of your ass and try to remember what you learned in Economics 101. Or perhaps you didn't even go to school!

    Re: matusadona – 4 years, and not much has changed. He hasn't really done shit. It appears the liberal media is working.
