It’s no secret that conservatives sorta hate President Barack Obama. So much so that House republicans voted to SUE him this week.
But last night, Barry O was shaking hands with one right-winger and they both seemed to be getting along great!
Who was this anti-Dem dame?
It was Katy Perry’s republican mom!!!
This is sort of a big deal, considering Katy REFUSED to allow her conservative Christian parents to attend Obama’s 2012 inauguration, which Miz Perry performed at!
But now, not only is the President being introduced to one of Katy’s parents, he’s speaking her praises!
Mr. Obama addressed the crowd last night, saying:
"We have just one of my favorite people performing tonight - Katy Perry. We are so grateful to her. I love Katy Perry. She is just a wonderful person. I've just met her mom and now I know why she is such a wonderful person.”
ZOMG. This is the greatest instance of bipartisanship EVER!
We’re so glad everyone could put politics aside in order to truly celebrate such a wonderful organization!
