“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...

“WME Entertainment Agency co-CEO Ari Emanuel.”

Any relation to Rahm?

We are not only paying for his paybacks, we are paying extra because he has to invite so many that he's got to put up a tent instead of using a room in the WH. When will the "average" dems see this man doesn't care about them either. He only cares about himself and the adoration he gets from hollyweird stars & other rich/famous/powerful people.

His brother. In fact, Ari Emanuel is the inspiration and namesake of the Ari Gold character on “Entourage”. A fun tidbit.

Elites and CEOs no "Workig People" or "Little People".

I'm sure Michelle & Barry will be sure to get a photo-op shoveling out turkey & dressing someplace other than the White House.

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...

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.
