Looks like President Obama won't be headed to Los Angeles next week after all. Obama was supposed to address the AFL-CIO convention on Monday and attend a fundraiser in Hancock Park. But the debate over an attack on Syria will keep him in Washington.
Too bad, because that would have given us an opportunity to warn of another OBAMAJAM!!!
The Hollywood Reporter was the first to break the news, which must have come as a great disappointment to folks who paid $32,400 to have an “off the cuff” discussion with the president.
“We regret to inform you that the September 9th reception with President Obama at the home of Marta Kauffman and Michael Skloff has been postponed,” says the e-mail obtained by THR. “We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.” (But, to be honest, Syria is probably way more important than whatever you were going to say.)
Refunds are available, but the Democratic National Committee says the event will be rescheduled.
Thank goodness, because we were really looking forward to losing our minds over the massive gridlock caused by the president's visit. (Even though that doesn't actually happen anymore.)
