President Obamas latest $1 million donor is a former fictional resident of the White House himself: Morgan Freeman.
The star of the latest Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises," made the big-money donation to the pro-Obama super PAC Priorities USA Action, Politico reported.
President Obama has done a remarkable job in historically difficult circumstances, Freeman said in a statement to Politico, noting the presidents actions to end combat operations in Iraq and rescue the auto industry, among others.
In return, he is the target of hundreds of millions of dollars from right-wing sources," he added. "I am proud to lend my voice - and support - to those who defend him."
The donation comes after Freeman made waves by suggesting that Obama is not Americas first black president.
The actor, who played the U.S. president in the disaster flick Deep Impact, noted that Obamas mother was both American and white as he was critizinging the so-called birther movement for its suspicions about his citizenship.

Hollyweirdos should be boycotted but I am sure there are many on the right rushing to the theaters to see this. And donate to Obama.
This is a profoundly stupid man.
I stopped going to movies in Nov 2000... I refuse to give my money to left wing actors who in turn funnel it to democrats — like Obama. Morgan Freeman is just the tip of the iceberg. It’s money laundering - you give your money to Hollywood and they give it to Obama. And I don’t miss the movies - a lot of great books out there to read.

There, fixed it.
It’s okay for Freeman, Maher etc to drop millions on this election. But the donators on the right are “buying the election.” The hypocrisy and doubles standards are so thick.
I’m very happy to see both of these gentlemen piss away $1,000,000!

“Oh, and, he’s black, too!” Right Mr. Freeman?
Pretty steep price to pay for the privilege of throwing in your two cents...
I avoid his movies and the movies of other outspoken liberal movie stars. Have to admit though that I make exceptions.
The NSN is proof of that.
The NSN is proof of that.
The MSM is proof of that.
. . . but according to Freeman, Obama is not black.
I watched a DVD of Gone Baby Gone and am so not a fan anymore--hard to believe this was the tough sarge in Officer and a Gentleman, he's just a puffy old f*rt with a face covered in ugly moles...
I’m done watch Morgan Freeman movies. Not even going to watch reruns of movies I liked in the past. I have been doing that more and more. I am no longer going to feed the beast.
Yeah, we know how Dems waste and steal money. Obama may raise more, but can he raise enough to cover all the waste and theft? This will buy a few boring commercials. Meh.
The true racists are on the Left.
