So, how opulent was the fundraiser that Obama attended in New York City last night (after taping his Letterman show) while our embassies are still smoldering?
When President Obama addresses an elite roster of hipsters and multimillionaires, including hosts Beyoncé and Jay-Z, in New York tonight, he will do so next to a custom-designed tower of $800-per-bottle champagne that dominates the main room at Jay-Z’s 40/40 nightclub.
The 350-bottle champagne tower — designed by Jeffrey Beers — is a monument to Jay-Z’s favorite bubbly, Armand de Brignac, which is known colloquially by rappers, clubgoers and connoisseurs as Ace of Spades because of its gold-spade label.
“It’s floor-to-ceiling gold bottles in the entire space. It’s beautiful — breathtaking,” a rep for the Flatiron District hot spot told The Post. “It’s the first thing you see when you walk in.”
But the White House, which meticulously controls Obama’s image, is not expected to release any photos of the president’s appearance at the lavish club.
OK, buckaroos and buckarettes, let's get out our calculators and do some maths.
350 times $800 is $280,000.00. That's more than I've ever made in my life.
For a guy who spends so much time telling us how bad rich people are, he sure spends a lot of time around them, doesn't he?
