Last night, Jay-Z & Beyonce raised over $4 Million towards President Obama’s Presidential campaign while they partied the night away at Jigga’s 40/40 club in New York City, after Obama left a live taping of the “David Letterman Show” and another fundraising dinner at Waldorf Astoria. More details below….
The power couple help raised $4 Million for POTUS’ Presidential campaign at the $40,000 per dinner & $350 per bottle champagne event. Beyonce had this to say,
“I can’t tell you how proud we are to host tonight’s event with President Obama. We believe in his vision.“
The President also had this to say,
Thank you. Thank you. (Applause.) Thank you. Well, it is wonderful to see all of you. I’m so grateful for all your support.
Let me just begin by saying to Jay and Bey, thank you so much for your friendship. We are so grateful. Michelle and Malia and Sasha are mad at me because they are not here. (Laughter.) That doesn’t usually happen. Usually they’re like, we’re glad you’re going — we don’t need to go. But every time they get a chance to see these two they are thrilled, partly because they are just both so generous, particularly to my kids. And Malia and Sasha just love both of them.
Beyoncé couldn’t be a better role model for our daughters because she carries herself with such class and poise — (applause) — and has so much talent. And Jay-Z now knows what my life is like. (Laughter.) We both have daughters, and our wives are more popular than we are. (Laughter and applause.) So we’ve got a little bond there. (Laughter.) It’s hard, but it’s okay. It’s okay. (Laughter.)
