Obama-Jay-Z-Beyonce Fundraiser Features $105,000 Champagne Tower
admin | On 19, Sep 2012
President Obama is pulling out all the stops, hoping to stuff his campaign sack with booze and celebrities. At the champagne… er… campaign event, the President touted his support from two people that have done much to enrich politics and enlighten Americans on the values of freedom and liberty …Jay-Z, and Beyonce.
The Daily Mail gives us a glimpse of the extravagance that most of us peasants are too poor to even consider attending:
President Barack Obama attended a fundraiser at Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club in Manhattan that featured a champagne tower of 350 bottles worth $105,000 – more than twice the median household income of an American family.
The tower of $300-a-bottle Armand de Brignac Brut Gold, known as ‘Ace of Spades’ because of its label, is a permanent fixture at the club.
The article continues…
Some 100 people attended the $40,000-per-person event, which took place after Obama spoke to 200 donors at a $12,500-per-family reception at the Waldorf Astoria. The total campaign cash haul for the day was $6 million.
Jay-Z’s 40/40 club is a perfectly good place to discuss important matters of state, and it’s always wonderful to hear what the two featured celebrities at the event have to say about things like economics and foreign policy. It is quite refreshing to know that the President is giving 110% of his effort to keeping his subjects safe and provided for.
Of course, during the recent David Letterman interview, the President talked about his allround good-guyness…
On the Late Show with David Letterman, Obama added that anyone seeking the presidency ought to be for ‘everyone, not just for some’ and talked about the hard work of single mothers and auto workers.
Sure, Obama might have just had a night of glitz and glamor with two notable celebrities in a ritzy night club, the same type of extravagance for which he attacks his opponent, but what’s a giant $105,000 floor-to-ceiling champagne tower among friends?
