This is What Hillary Did Instead of Helping Flood Victims in Louisiana

Written by Philip Hodges

If Trump had decided to do what Hillary did, the media wouldn’t let him get away with it. They’d call him a heartless, greedy politician who doesn’t care about minority victims of natural disasters, and who only cares about raising tons of money for his own campaign from his rich, well-connected Hollywood elite friends.

But since it was Hillary who did all that, the media won’t really care that much.

But they’ll get on to Trump for handing out play-doh. Of course, he also handed out actual supplies, but let’s not let the facts get in the way.

From The Wrap:

After a star-studded fundraising weekend in Martha’s Vineyard and Cape Cod, Hillary Clinton arrives in Los Angeles on Monday for another round of high-wattage Hollywood fundraisers, as well as a Monday taping of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

Clinton will start off her fundraising tour at the home of NBA legend Magic Johnson and his wife Cookie.

The Johnson event will be followed by another big bash at the home of media mogul and longtime donor Haim Saban. The event will be co-hosted by Saban’s wife Cheryl as well as Disney CEO Bob Iger, L.A. Olympics bid chief Casey Wasserman, Jeffrey Katzenberg and his wife Marilyn, Willow Bay, and MarketShare founder Jon Vein and his wife Ellen Goldsmith-Vein. Tickets for the event start at $2,700 per person or, if you raise $27,000, you can be a co-host. For the dinner tickets are going for $100,000 per couple.

On Tuesday, the Democratic nominee will stop for a luncheon at the home of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, after the couple stepped in for Leonardo DiCaprio. The “Reverent” star was originally set to host the event but had to cancel last minute because of scheduling issues, according to his publicist.

The event costs $33,400 per ticket and will be co-hosted by Jennifer Aniston, Tobey Maguire, Scooter Braun and his wife Yael, Shonda Rhimes, and ICM Partners’ Chris Silbermann.

After that, Clinton zips over to Laguna Beach for two more fundraisers.

[…]

On Wednesday Clinton heads up to Silicon Valley where she’ll attend a fundraiser at the home of CEO Tim Cook. And next weekend, Clinton stops by the Hamptons, where she’ll be rubbing elbows with Jon Bon Jovi and Jimmy Buffett.
