On October 10 President Obama talked about gun control and the Oregon shooting at “$33,400-a-ticket” Hollywood fundraiser for the Democrat Senatorial Campaign Committee.
The fundraiser was held in the Pacific Palisades home of J.J. Abrams and his wife Katie McGrath.
According to Deadline, Obama talked “passionately” about gun control. He also talked about the shooting at Umpqua Community College in which a gunman ignored the school’s gun free policies and opened fire, killing nine innocents. Democrats–including Obama–have proposed gun control in the wake of the heinous attack, but no aspect of their proposals would have prevented the attack from happening.
The fundraiser at Abrams’ home is believed “to have raised over $750,000 for Democratic Party war chest.”
After leaving Abrams’ home Obama attended a “private concert by Jamie Foxx” in another Pacific Palisades’ homes. Tickets for the concert were $1,000, with the proceeds going to the PAC Obama for America and the Democrat National Committee (DNC). Then, at 5:40 pm, Obama went “to the home of interior designer Michael S. Smith for a $10,000-per-ticket event for the Democrat Hope Fund and the DNC.”
Smith decorated the White House when the Obama’s moved in 2009 and his husband–James Costos–“was appointed to be the U.S. ambassador to Spain in 2013 by [Obama].”
