Pres. Obama: First Family Loves 'Modern Family'
President Obama was in Los Angeles on Monday night, this time his campaign fundraiser took him to the House of Blues, where the evening's festivities were emceed by Emmy winner and "Modern Family" funnyman Jesse Tyler Ferguson. President Obama confessed, "Michelle and the girls love them some 'Modern Family.'"
Early on, the Commander-in-Chief was interrupted by a heckler, who shouted, "Jesus Christ is God!" before being physically removed from the event. The President, keeping his cool, laughed, "First of all, I agree that Jesus Christ is the lord. I believe in that."
Once the interruptions subsided (another man yelled, "Don't forget medical marijuana!") the President got down to business, saying, "We will remind the world why America is the greatest nation on Earth. God bless you!"
Obama also appeared at the Fig and Olive restaurant in West Hollywood and spoke in front of Hollywood executives and celebrities, who paid nearly $18K each to attend the high-profile fundraiser.
Some giant A-list players included Dreamworks CEO Jeffrey Katzenburg, who introduced the President, Jack Black, Danny DeVito, Quincy Jones and Eva Longoria. Longoria expressed her support for Pres. Obama, saying, "If people would untie his hands, he could do a lot more."
