Sanders Supporters Throw $1001 At Clinton Motorcade Going to Hollywood Fundraiser

Clooney said he couldn’t argue with that logic over those particular acting skills of Clooney – and he walked away.

Clinton’s event in San Francisco on Friday was protested by a group of roughly 100 people chanting “Hey hey, ho ho, Hillary Clinton has got to go”.

Supporters of Democrat presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders “made it rain” on Hillary Clinton’s motorcade as it passed en route to a high-dollar fundraiser at actor George Clooney’s Los Angeles home, throwing $1 bills into the air. “They’re absolutely right. It is an obscene amount of money”, Clooney said in excerpts released on Saturday.

The amount Sanders is seeking in his new appeal is one-tenth of what he says has been the average contribution to his campaign of $27. Bernie Sanders was asked if Clooney is backing the wrong candidate for the Democratic nomination.

Since Ms. Clinton has a significant lead in pledged delegates to the Democratic National Convention – even after the senator’s recent victories and after subtracting the hundreds of super delegates nominally supporting her – she’s strongly favored to be the party’s nominee. Those raising $30,000 received an invitation to a host reception with Clinton. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said last week on Twitter that the nomination process has been known to all for more than a year and that the campaigns have a responsibility to understand the process. Sanders said Sunday on ABC’s ‘This Week With George Stephanopoulos.’ “How does raising money and the way you raise money reflect that future?” The former senator, who previously endorsed a $12-per-hour federal minimum wage, said she would also sign legislation raising that level to $15.

Some states and cities have taken up measures on those issues, with states like NY and California recently passing laws to raise the minimum wage to $15.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton discusses her economic proposals at Southwest College before attending two fund-raisers later today in Los Angeels on Saturday. Both Sanders and Clinton claim ties to NY.Observers say that as much as the candidates decry money in politics, they are also pragmatic and do not want to cede the money race to their competitors.

“I think that what’s happened is that I’ve become a little bit exhausted of being beaten up by the negativity of the Clinton campaign”, Sanders answered back, “and we are responding in kind”.
