WERE YOU (OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW) INVITED?

 Your $33,400 ($66,800.per couple) will get you in the door and a "picture with Hillary"                          
                                         


Actor George Clooney, a major fundraiser for Hillary Clinton, said that it’s “ridiculous” and “obscene” how much money goes into presidential campaigns.

In an excerpt of an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” taped for Sunday, Clooney was asked if he thought the price of admission to attend a fundraiser the actor is hosting is an “obscene amount of money.”

“Yes, I think it’s an obscene amount of money,” Clooney responded. “You know we had some protesters last night when we pulled up in San Francisco – and they’re right to protest, they’re absolutely right, it’s an obscene amount of money. The Sanders campaign, when they talk about it, is absolutely right, it’s ridiculous that we should have this kind of money in politics, I agree.”

The actor and his wife Amal hosted a fundraiser on Friday night for the former secretary of State, charging couples $353,400 to sit at a table with Clinton and the Clooneys. They are throwing another high-dollar fundraising event Saturday night.
