The Middle East is burning, America’s foreign policy is collapsing, and al-Qaeda is emboldened by its successful assassination of an American ambassador…Obama has no time to meet with Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu or to attend those pesky national security briefings…
The Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill down at LA Live will be serving President Barack Obama and some big donors on October 7, a source with knowledge of the fundraising event told Deadline tonight. Jeffrey Katzenberg will be co-hosting the now $25,000 a ticket dinner scheduled after the 30 Days To Victory Concert at the Nokia Theatre. Harvey Weinstein may also come on board as a co-host for the intimate meal between the incumbent and his wealthier supporters. Both Katzenberg and Weinstein are big Obama backers and have hosted previous exclusive high-priced dinners for the President. Earth, Wind & Fire are confirmed to perform at the concert, Deadline has learned. So is pop star Katy Perry.
What else to expect from the same President who dashed off to a Vegas fundraiser the same day the Middle East blew up and we learned of the assassination of Ambassador Stevens.
