The list, ping
Enjoy it while you can and are able, Barry...enjoy it while you can.
Narcissistic, self-aggrandizing birds of a feather...
White House State Dither Party
“Hollywood contingent asked to attend, are onetime DreamWorks partners David Geffen, Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg; Sony Pictures Entertainment chairman Michael Lynton; and WME Entertainment Agency co-CEO Ari Emanuel.”
Lovely. Just the people we want to show the world as perfect examples of American citizenship.
I’m sure the Indian PM will be thrilled to arrive and discover that the evening is about everything BUT him...
Yep middle of a recession and the capital is a buzz with a lavish social event
Great PR move
“WME Entertainment Agency co-CEO Ari Emanuel.
Any relation to Rahm?
His brother. In fact, Ari Emanuel is the inspiration and namesake of the Ari Gold character on “Entourage”. A fun tidbit.
I hope he told them to bring there check books along for that “Hope & Change” tax.
No state dinner for the British Prime Minister.
NO SOUP FOUR YOU!
A special form of disrespect (BO Dissing our allies)
I'm sure Michelle & Barry will be sure to get a photo-op shoveling out turkey & dressing someplace other than the White House.
This is his first State Dinner?
¿ Wonder if Michael Jackson will be there ?
He’s just trying to ensure their cooperation and favorable press. He has enough skeletons for 50 politically based movies.
Also, he will make a concerted effort to pressure SNL.
Dis guy and his Chicago gang dey wants to ‘control’ everything, yoo know, get dere hooks in...so ta speak...
Well said. With that many fake idols in the room; I feel sorry for the PM.
There was a time when actors were considered the scum of the earth and ranked just below prostitutes.
Birds of a feather....
Why wouldn’t he invite actors? They are people who get paid for pretending to be somebody, and Obama is paid to pretend to be a President.
All I can think when I look at this picture is Mr. and Mrs. Doofus!! Him for the stupid grin and her for the hair which closely resembles that of Seinfeld's Kramer.
Hollywood wants in on Bollywood’s revenue stream.
What is it w/ muslim terrorists and their tents. First Quadaffi when he attended the UN a few weeks ago, and now zero. Did zero get the idea for muslim fashion trends from Q?
