Obama Talks ‘Perks’, Pleads The 5th At Celebrity Fundraiser
Why is it that the fun stuff at presidential fundraisers tends to take place after the press pool has been ushered out? The 50 guests dining with the Obamas at Sarah Jessica Parker’s West Village townhouse Thursday got to watch what happens live when Bravo host Andy Cohen made President Obama plead the fifth.
Vogue editor Anna Wintour, a co-host of the $40,000-per-person event (paid by everyone except for a girl from North Carolina and her mother, who won the lottery to attend), moderated a Q and A with the president that elicited the usual questions and answers about politics and policy. Then Wintour called on Cohen for the final question of the evening.
According to guests in attendance, Andy stole the show.
