President Joe Biden and Former President Barack Obama Attend Record-Setting Fundraiser in Los Angeles

President Joe Biden and former President Barack Obama made headlines on Saturday as they attended a record-setting fundraising event in Downtown Los Angeles. The event, held at the Peacock Theater, featured emcee Jimmy Kimmel and Hollywood stars Julia Roberts and George Clooney.

Biden addressed the crowd of about 7,000 people, discussing topics such as the economy, abortion rights, and threats to America’s democracy. He highlighted the shift in economic policy during his time as vice president, moving away from trickle-down economics to a model that benefits the middle class.

Kimmel, known for his humor, took jabs at former President Donald Trump and praised Biden for his accomplishments during his presidency. The event quickly became a big-money Hollywood-style affair, raising over $28 million for the Democratic Party.

Celebrities like Barbra Streisand, Jack Black, and Sheryl Lee Ralph were in attendance, along with political figures like Gov. Gavin Newsom and Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass. First Lady Jill Biden also shared a personal story about standing up to bullies.

Outside the venue, pro-Palestinian protesters gathered, waving flags and banners. The event was heavily guarded by police, but the protest remained peaceful.

The fundraiser, which featured high-priced tickets ranging from $250 to $500,000, was a significant moment for Biden’s re-election campaign. The event showcased the support Biden has from Hollywood and Democratic officials.

As Biden continues his campaign efforts, his opponent, former President Trump, was also busy campaigning in Michigan. The two candidates are gearing up for a heated election battle in November.

Overall, the event was a star-studded affair that highlighted the support for Biden’s presidency and his re-election campaign. With the backing of Hollywood celebrities and political figures, Biden’s fundraising efforts are off to a strong start in the lead-up to the election.
