At Biden’s $25M bash

The Washington Free Beacon devotes The Stiles Section to the work of senior writer Andrew Stiles. Stiles previewed last night’s Million Dollar Bash in New York City in “Liberal Celebs Host ‘Fundraiser From Hell’ for Joe Biden.” This morning in his companion weekly newsletter (readers can subscribe to it here) Stiles ran it down this way:

Worst party we weren’t invited to: Rich liberals shelled out as much as $500,000 this week for tickets to a Democratic fundraiser at Radio City Music Hall and the chance to have their photos taken (by celebrity photographer Annie Leibowitz) with Presidents Joe Biden, Barack Obama, and Bill Clinton. Attendees were lucky enough to experience a “lively conversation” between the three presidents moderated by Stephen Colbert, a former comedian.

The star-studded extravaganza featured performances from Queen Latifah, Ben Platt, and Lizzo, the morbidly obese pop star facing multiple accusations of sexual harassment. Speaking of which, it’s good to know that Democrats have reconsidered their reconsideration of Bill Clinton’s legacy in light of the movement formerly known as #MeToo, which lasted from 2017 until the moment Biden was credibly accused of sexual assault in 2020.

President Trump was also in New York yesterday. The New York Post covered Trump’s counterprogramming here. The Post also commented in the editorial “President Biden’s celeb-packed $25M fundraiser is the height of Dem elitism.”

We’re warming up for Bob Dylan’s birthday in May. Dylan gave an account of what might have been last night’s theme song in “Million Dollar Bash.” It was one of the songs he recorded with The Band in Woodstock on The Basement Tapes. I think we first heard it courtesy of Fairport Convention.
