Obama’s New York Visit Includes Fundraisers and a Tower of Champagne

(New York, NY)  –  President Obama collected millions of campaign dollars during his visit to New York City.  The Obama campaign says about a hundred people paid 40-thousand dollars each to attend a Manhattan reception hosted by entertainment power couple Jay-Z and Beyonce last night at Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club in Manhattan that featured a champagne tower of 350 bottles worth $105,000 – more than twice the median household income of an American family ($51,413 in 2011).  The tower of $300-a-bottle Armand de Brignac Brut Gold, known as ‘Ace of Spades’ because of its label, is a permanent fixture at the club

Earlier, Obama spoke to about 200 people at a reception at the ritzy Waldorf Astoria hotel.  They paid at least 12-thousand-500-dollars per family.  While in New York, Obama also paid a visit to CBS’ “Late Night with David Letterman,” where he stayed on as Letterman’s guest for the entire hour.

CBS Late Show host David Letterman actually told the President of the United States Tuesday, “You haven’t seen me naked.”

During the much-anticipated interview, Barack Obama responded, “We’re gonna keep it that way”
