Gosh this sounds familiar.
The election – not even the presidential election – is a year and a half away, and already President Obama is flying to New York City for three fundraisers in an evening.
It’s overcast for the White House, but the stars were out, of course. From the pool report:
Pool was ushered into Harvey Weinstein’s 5 story West Village town home for POTUS’s remarks to the assembled donors. The ground floor room contained 8 tables of 8, covered in white linen with roses as a centerpiece.
Several White House staffers were seated at the tables including Dan Pfeiffer and Jay Carney. Patrick Gaspard was standing in the right side of the room (POTUS’s) right.
Co-pooler David Nakamura spotted SEO favorites Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel were seated near Mr. Weinstein. We are also reliably informed that Tommy Hilfiger was in the room.
We are also reliably informed that Tommy Hilfiger was in the room. I’m glad to hear there’s some investigative journalism going on up there.
