Jay Z and Beyonce Raise $4 Million for Obama


About a week ago news spread that Jay Z and Beyonce were holding a $40,000 a plate fundraiser at the 40/40 Club for President Obama's re election campaign [click here if you missed that].

Welp, the big ticket dinner pulled in a cool $4 million...

During his address President Obama said Beyonce had been very generous with his daughters and that she couldn't be a better role model for his children and thanked Jay Z and Beyonce for their friendship.

The President also joked about his bond with Jay Z telling the crowd,
"We both have daughters and our wives are more popular than we are. So, you know, we've got a little bond there. It's hard but it's okay."
Michelle Obama was not present.

While this admirable on a “charitable” level, I don’t understand why already-rich people asked the poorer public for “help” in a fundraiser. If I were sitting on millions, VVS stones and Audemar Piguet watches, I would have footed the bill and treated as many people as I could, instead of charging $40k per plate. The “fundraiser” Jay-Z and Beyonce allegedly conducted was just the result of donations from the already broke American “middle class”.

...which will only go towards the pockets of the 1%.


So did someone resort to popping her pelvis shamelessly for 100 people?

Its obvious they just wrote Obama a cheque for 4million and then filled the place up with journos. Another website actually has an email beyonce wrote inviting publications all expenses paid to the event. Obama was too embarrassed to even take pics over there, but not embarrassed enough to turn down 4million. Obama dropped by atleast 3 different fundraisers that night and these two media whores are making a big hoopla about theirs, like they're actually best buds with him or something - NOT! Obama js used ya'll for the coins and they js used him for publicity. Smh at the spectacle in its entirety.

Lili said...

LOL @ Michelle Obama not being present. She kept close enough ties to get their help but didn't show for the gala. Now that is something. I ain't mad...LOL

I will say, the Carters did something great. Hosting an event that pulled in $4mil is MAJOR. I know folks will say it was a self-serving gesture, but I commend them for raising the $.

Now, I do wonder if they personally donated to the campaign, or if their "donation" is the collected funds.........L O L

They shoulda been home with their flimsy white gorilla lookin baby and even amber rose shows her real baby bump, too bad beyonce couldnt, i bet she feels so inadequate and less of a woman, lol i bet that bitch got male hormones thats why she cant procreate

THIS IS "GREAT NEWS FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY" TEAM OBAMA!

This was a lot of money that the Carter's raised for the POTUS Re-election efforts. I think Michelle Obama is the best role model for her daughters.

Nice, if my black ass had that kind of money to throw around I would have been front and center rubbing elbows with Barack grinning from ear to ear, trying to get a photo with Barack and Michelle.

@10:26...Jay & B were not asking "the poor" for $. Cuz as we all know most of us don't have $40,000 to just put out like that!! It doesn't make us poor, it just makes us less fortunate to give this type of money!!

I commend Jay & B for doing this type of fundraiser, cuz white ppl do it all the time & a lot of times they do these functions @ their homes.....JAY&BTEAMOBAMA!!!


jUST tY

Lili said...

10:36- I didn't know that- quite interesting! No photos were taken and he attended multiple fundraisers? LOL Well, I think it's even better that they actually came out of pocket for the event. I was wondering who in the world they would have invited...Bey didn't get close to KK- she would've hauled her pack of 10+ family members to the event...lmao



And folks on this level use each other all the time. They love having their names associated with the President and he needs the funds and support so that's certainly a mutually beneficial arrangement.

There's no way he didn't take ONE photo though. That would be an insult and crying shame...LOL

The money was raised for his campaign for re-election, Romney's event charged 50k a plate. If you're an Obama supporter then realize this was a positive thing. Y'all trippin

Anonymous said...

@10:26AM

Um...they were not asking the 'poor' for 40k for a ticket...they approached those who could afford it.

If you want to donate, there are pleny ways you can do it. This was there contribution; asking the 'wealthy' to reach into their pockets to support the president's campaign.

Romney's event charged MORE than that, none of you complained about it. Most in attendance were supporting celebs, congress, etc...not a word from you...but now you have something to say. SMH

4 MILLION WAS RAISED BUT HOW MUCH DID JAY/BEY ACTUALLY GIVE TOWARDS THE CAMPAIGN?

Anonymous said...

@yall right, the Carters did write a check for that amount wasnt nobody paying $40,000 to smell her bad breath. Plus nice tax write off plus that % dont pay taxes like the middle class.

OBAMA!!!!!!

IAINTMADATCHA said...

Some people just say shit for the sake of having mouths (and keyboards). Jay and Bey could not have stroked a $4 million check to Obama's campaign. No individual(s) can (without some shady shit involved). This is politics. Some people should just stick to the shit they know.

In regards to Bey and Jay making the donation themselves and not raising...

I can't believe Americans know nothing about their own political system...this is why you guys will remain stuck on stupid. You speak with no basis and knowledge.

There are LIMITS to how much you can contribute to a a candidate and committee. Get it together people.

Mr. Obama went on to explain that Beyonce “couldn’t be a better role model for our daughters because she carries herself with such class and poise.” He then discussed the similarities between himself and Jay-Z.

“Jay-Z now knows what my life is like. We both have daughters, and our wives are more popular than we are. So we’ve got a little bond there. It’s hard, but it’s okay,” said the President.

And I can't believe you can be so dumb. First off even if people that attended paid anything the candidate will not receive a hand full of checks and credit card slips. The money does into special account. With that being said J & B could have been that special account. Also the rich do not have the same rules as the minions they dupe.

What the hell did your first statement have to do with anything I said? Who gives a shit about cheques and credit card slips? My point is the limit in personal, committee, group, joint donations. So...yeah.

@ 10:26 I've been saying that , the broke are the only people who donate , all the start come knocking on our doord for our last dollar meanwhile they got millions that don't move in the bank

these assholes make me sick , they both dumb enough to support a president who had a terrible term and done nothing for the public, everyone thinks he's a bad president

I bet Byfool dreams of being the first lady , that's prob on her list of things she will never achieve with an Emmy and an Oscar

Anonymous said...

@3;25 The Daily Mail is also reporting that Monica Lewinski,is writing a tell all book about her liaisons with Bill Clinton.Monica will reveal how Bill wanted threesomes,used sex toys and described Hitlary as a cold wet fish,which I can believe is true.Most of these high powered tend to indulge in obsessive sexual activities,exploiting others for sexual favours.I feel Beyonce has been loaned out to Obama,like Monica Lewinski.Why is she the only celeb linked to him.You never know this could be the downfall of Obama with wild revelations he has had an affair with Beyonce and Jay.Anyway save your votes DONT vote for same old ,same old .Dont vote for the excuse our ancestor died so we can vote,the vote are rigged,our ancestors must be questioning why people are so complacent, while allowing this theft of America wealth, by the chosen few to try and fulfil their global dominance. Seriously Jay and Beyonce.... LOL.What has America become.

Bullshit, Beyonce is not the ONLY celeb linked to him. Kerry Washington has always expressed her love and support for Obama, as well as Oprah, Gwynth, and many more.

I swear you people are stuck on stupid and get lost in tales. Is this what your life is made of? Half ass assumptions. You people are so slated by media life that it's warped your simple minds

Please don't vote. Stay in the dark, stay in the shadows, and remain in your basement.

@Truth Be Told

What truth are you telling? If you are going to make statements, at least know what you are talking about.

In the private sector alone, over 863,000 have been created this year alone.

The Republicans have had presidency for 28 years and the Democrats for 22 years. In that time, the Republicans have created 24 millions jobs and the Democrates have created over 42 million jobs. Stock Market return for Republicans 109%, Democrats 992%. Let's talk about Stock Market Return Annualized...Republicans 2.7% vs Democrats 11%. GDP...Republicans 0.6% vs Democrats 4.1%. And finally income growth...Republicans 0.6% vs Democrats 2.2 % (information from the Dept. of Labor).

Unknown to you, Obama has worked hard a fixing a problem that took EIGHT YEARS to create. You can't fix everything in one night.

"Yes, Obama duped young people by not doing every single thing they want. So now they’ll all vote Republican. It’s like when I want some bread, I won’t settle for half a loaf. Instead, I will have a muffin made of broken glass.” - Stephen Colbert

Beyonce is a Diamond gem, meaning to the elite she is the President's sex slave.. all had one and Marilyn was JFK's. I find it suspect that they raised $4 million with that being their favorite number because they are into numerology.
