Trump Beverly Hills Event Has Low Turnout and Lack of Celebrities
Donald Trump has always liked to have high profile celebrities around him. Since moving to the White House, he’s held meetings with stars like Kid Rock, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.
The president held a fundraising dinner last night at the Beverly Hills, California home of donor, Lee Sampson. According to the Daily Beast, the event came far short of expectations.
Multiple valets as well as Rabbi Marvin Hier, said there were no celebrities at the event. Tickets reportedly cost anywhere from $15,000 to $150,000 depending on access to Trump.
Protesters from both sides of the aisle made their presence felt. There were, “four flag-clad supporters in MAGA hats, and 10 protesters holding a banner that read ‘TRUMP AND PENCE MUST GO.”
Congressman and frequent Trump-opponent, Ted Lieu (D-CA), welcomed Trump to his district and cracked a joke at this expense. “This is my district,” Lieu posted on Twitter, “and Donald Trump can eat comfortably because there are no windmills nearby.”
