If President Obama wanted to shake the notion that he is a fedora-wearing, latte-sipping hipster, one of his fundraisers in New York tonight is not going to help.
As part of a whirlwind fundraising trip through the city, Obama will stop by a star-studded gala featuring musical performances by The Roots, Ben Folds and Ingrid Michaelson, ABC reports.
After that he’ll drink some PBR, construct a compost heap, and blog about the whole evening on his Tumblr.
Obama’s characterization as a card-carrying hipster elite courtesy of Utah Senator Orrin Hatch, who accused the president yesterday of preferring wealthy, liberal urbanites to blue-collar, hard hat-wearing, real Americans.
He was talking about energy policy then, but he can now add Obama’s music friends as fuel to the fire.
