While The GOP Debated, Kim And Kanye Helped Hillary Raise Some Funds
While America was tuned into the GOP debates Thursday night, (August 6th) many took to Twitter to voice their approval, concern, confusion and sometimes outrage at the responses some of the GOP candidates gave.
I was impressed by almost everyone, it’s gonna be a hard choice picking a candidate. #GOPDebate

John Kasich should feel proud of his performance at the #GOPDebate Thursday night. He looked more presidential than the rest of the field.

But the one couple who may not have been tuned in was Kim and Kanye. The Wests, who are the latest to have been immortalized in London’s Madame Tussaud’s wax museum, attended a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton and also snapped the selfie featured above.
The fundraiser event was held at Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande’s manager home. The 250 person guest list included Usher, Jessica Alba and Cash Warren, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, as well as Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) Ticket prices for the event were $2,700. This is the third time Clinton has fundraised in LA since announcing her run for the White House.
