Former President Barack Obama is set to appear at a Beverly Hills fundraiser for Claire McCaskill next month hosted by some of Hollywood’s most liberal elites. The fundraiser will be hosted by actress Katie McGrath, film studio executive Jeffrey Katzenberg, filmmaker Steven Spielberg, and other West Coast allies of McCaskill.
This is not McCaskill’s first fundraising foray in Hollywood. Earlier this year, Bob Iger, the CEO of Disney hosted a $32,400 per person fundraiser in support of McCaskill headlined close McCaskill ally, New York liberal Chuck Schumer.
This Hollywood fundraiser with her party’s former standard-bearer completely refutes McCaskill’s recent claim that she does not care what national Democrats think. After years of deep ties to the likes of Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, and Elizabeth Warren, this latest soirée with her liberal allies in Beverly Hills falls in line with McCaskill’s long record of being entrenched with D.C.’s Democratic elites.
