Obama Arrives at Harvey Weinstein's Connecticut Compound for Lavish Fundraiser (barf)

Four years ago, Barack Obama was a frequent visitor to Connecticut, trolling for votes. This time around he was in the state in search of money from some of his most prominent celebrity backers.

On Monday night, the president was at movie mogul Harvey Weinstein's ocean front compound for a lavish fundraiser co-hosted with Anne Hathaway, Aaron Sorkin and Anna Wintour. Weinstein introduced the president as the "Paul Newman of American presidents." Obama, in turn, complimented Hathaway: "She's spectacular. I got a chance to see Batman, and she was the best thing in it. That's just my personal opinion." (She beamed and laughed). Obama said this about Sorkin: He "writes the way every Democrat in Washington wished they spoke."

‘Paul Newman of American Presidents’ Two thoughts, what the hell does that mean? and I would have said Ed Wood.

Shame on Joanne Woodward for being a part (co-sponser) of this whoredom.

Paul Newman is turning over in his grave at the spectacle of his wife backing Bath-House Barry (who hates Israel).

Newman probably supported the Israel-Hater Barry, too, (while on earth) but, by NOW, Paul Newman knows better what Barry has in store for the area God calls His favorite place on the face of the earth.

I see Obama’s rubbing elbows with the 1%. His hypocrisy knows no bounds.

The nauseating exchange between Hathaway and Obama was a mutual “lip service”.
And Obama’s compliment to Sorkin was a figurative “hand job”.
Obama’s fundraisers are in effect one-night stands.

What do you call a person who gives pleasure in exchange for money?

Paul Newman was bisexual. Was that the reference?

A frequent visitor to Connecticut in 2008 trolling for votes? Maybe he got his current Social Security card during one of those visits???

I’m shocked that he would give a shout-out to the Batman movie and admit that he saw it and enjoyed it. How insensitive!!!

He just met with the Aurora families, supposedly “giving comfort” to them. How could he possibly see this movie knowing that it must bring heartache to the families and the victims, some of whom are still in critical condition?
