Here's Jay Carney's Hilarious Response To A Question About Obama 'Cavorting' With Celebrities

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney deadpanned a pretty funny response to a question aboard Air Force One today. The press corps was en route to California, where President Obama is holding a couple fundraisers today in San Francisco and Los Angeles. 

Because they were going to California, Carney got a question about Obama’s perceived frequent fundraising with “showbiz types.” Here’s what he said in response to that question:

Q:    Can I ask you about the California fundraisers, in particular?  The President is getting a lot of heat over cavorting with showbiz types.  Rush Limbaugh is referring to him as Barack Kardashian, can you believe.  What is your response to that?  (Laughter.) 

MR. CARNEY:  Two words — Donald Trump.  Next question.
