Bon Jovi Flies To New York On Air Force One?
A White House official said that Bon Jovi was a “guest of the President.” Bon Jovi’s trip was paid for courtesy of the Obama campaign because he was scheduled to play at a fundraising event held in the Waldorf-Astoria hotel.
Since reaching the national stage, Obama has been criticized by conservatives for his affinity for celebrities. Obama’s plane ride with Bon Jovi comes a month after a dinner with George Clooney. Earlier in the year, Obama held a fundraiser at director Spike Lee’s New York townhouse.
On June 14, “Sex and the City” star Sarah Jessica Parker will be hosting a fundraiser for the President alongside Vogue editor Anna Wintour.
