SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— First Lady Michelle Obama was scheduled to be at San Francisco’s Fairmont Hotel Friday morning for a sold-out fundraiser. Former San Francisco Mayor and California State Assembly Speaker Willie Brown joined to weigh in on the First Lady’s California trip.
“She’s a very, very good fundraiser. In fact she may even be more interesting, because she’s so rare, than her husband,” Brown said.READ MORE: Theranos Trial: Elizabeth Holmes Describes Relationship With COO Sunny Balwani, Alleges Abuse
It’s interesting though with these Democrats. One day they’re talking about helping the middle class, then they come into San Francisco and they scoop up $20,000 to $30,000 per head at the high-end restaurants here and only to an elite few.
“This is all about raising a sufficient amount of money to help the many and you can only get it from the rich,” Brown said.READ MORE: Pinder, Kemp Reach One-Year, Multi-Million Dollar Deals With Oakland A's
Is this the only time we see the President and his wife, when they come here to fundraise large amounts of money? What happened to the president or the First Lady showing up at a school, a rally or a park or something one on one?
