Will Smith’s manager and producing partner James Lassiter hosted a fundraiser for the Democratic Party last night in Los Angeles, and both President Barack Obama and Will were in attendance.
It cost $35,800 per person to attend the dinner, but President Obama stopped by Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles first.
There were about 40 people there, and President Obama spoke to the guests (which included Magic Johnson) and stated:
“This election will not be as sexy as the first one. Back then it was still fresh and new. I didn’t have any gray hair. Everybody loved the ‘Hope’ posters and all that. This time it’s –we’ve got to grind it out a little bit. We’ve got to grind it out. But the cause is the same. And my passion is the same. And my commitment is the same.’’
