Obama Fundraiser With Jay-Z Beyonce Tower Of 350 Gold Champ Bottles $800 Each, WH Bans Photos

Obama Fundraiser With Jay-Z And Beyonce Features “Floor-To-Ceiling” Tower Of 350 Gold Champagne Bottles Costing $800 Each, White House Bans Photos Of Event…

Now why would they ban photos of an event like this?

Via New York Post:

Nix the flags and the podium. Cue the opulent 18-foot tower of gold-bottled French champagne.

When President Obama addresses an elite roster of hipsters and multimillionaires, including hosts Beyoncé and Jay-Z, in New York tonight, he will do so next to a custom-designed tower of $800-per-bottle champagne that dominates the main room at Jay-Z’s 40/40 nightclub.

The 350-bottle champagne tower — designed by Jeffrey Beers — is a monument to Jay-Z’s favorite bubbly, Armand de Brignac, which is known colloquially by rappers, clubgoers and connoisseurs as Ace of Spades because of its gold-spade label.

It’s floor-to-ceiling gold bottles in the entire space. It’s beautiful — breathtaking,” a rep for the Flatiron District hot spot told The Post. “It’s the first thing you see when you walk in.”

But the White House, which meticulously controls Obama’s image, is not expected to release any photos of the president’s appearance at the lavish club.

Details of the party are “under lock and key,” according to the rep, and the White House was guarding the guest list as if it were the latest intelligence profile of Iran’s nuclear program.

Obama: Jay-Z “Knows What My Life Is Like”…

Pimpin’ ain’t easy.

Via Beltway Confidential:

After President Obama was introduced by Beyoncé and Jay-Z, he explained to the famous rap artist that they had something in common.

“Beyoncé couldn’t be a better role model for our daughters because she carries herself with such class and poise and has so much talent,” Obama said. “And Jay-Z now knows what my life is like. We both have daughters, and our wives are more popular than we are.”

$280,000 worth of bubbly. The 1% sure have it good, but Obama wants you to believe he looks out for the little guy? Obama thinks he is KING, not President. Michelle Antoinette Obama has the same sense of entitlement.

A tower of champagne bottles in a nightclub? So, if one drunken dancing fool trips and bumps into the tower, Jay Z is going to be out a quarter million dollars? Genius.

Notice them making that bizarre “O” sign with their hands.

I saw a bumper sticker that read “O&Joe, O12” so I guess they’ve decided to go with the highly appropriate Zero as their campaign motif.

“Ace of Spades”....If you or I said that, it would be racist. Reparations at $800 a bottle.

Pathetic!!! They breed like rabbits and depend on us to foot the bill for them to sit on their butts and breed more..Why not have these rich communist help them out..I though Obama disliked the rick guys..The very people we support use welfare money to buy these no talents records to make them rich..

The idiot probably got drunk and high on something so refused to let the world see him for what he is.A scam artist..

if I have my history right, I believe the French masses finally had enough of their royal king and queen when the people were starving in the streets and the queen stupidly suggested to let them eat cake (of course the royals were lavishly spending, spending, spending)...guess history does repeat itself: leaders partying it up with the expensive stuff while their governments are totally broke!

Not good, not at all...

This is sick. Two members of our family have lost their jobs and had their children’s first homes foreclosed. In this horrible economy, it is mind-boggling that the president takes part in this disgusting display of opulence by two over-paid “entertainers” so he can get a few more millions for himself.

Too bad they are not that careful about details related to National Security and our troops.

Where is the hidden camera when you need one? I would love to just have audio of Great Leader speaking the cadence of the street. I bet he lays it on thick and jive and gets all street with it. That recording would be worth some big bucks.
