Actor George Clooney had a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton this weekend, one that later made him admit that there is “an obscene amount of money” surrounding the machinations of American politics. Clinton, herself, appeared at the event, and protestors had a peculiar way of greeting her upon arrival.
Howard Gold is Clooney’s next-door neighbor, and he held a $27-per-person fundraiser for Bernie Sanders that night in a counter event to Clinton’s $353,000.00-per-couple event. Gold’s family founded the 99 Cents Only chain, and as part of the festivities, he gave one-thousand $1 bills to approximately 100 attendees to throw at Clinton’s entourage as they drove up.
