Obama, on the West Coast for two days of fundraising, spoke to star-studded audiences in Beverly Hills on Wednesday night.
Attendees included Julia Roberts, Reese Witherspoon, “Glee” star Jane Lynch, “Modern Family” star Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Cher and Ellen DeGeneres. "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy hosted one private event, and the Fox series’s star Darren Criss performed for a large event billed as a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender gala.
And if anyone tweets as much as politicians, it’s Hollywood celebrities.
Criss, a last-minute replacement for singer Pink — who fell ill — expressed disbelief about being asked to perform, tweeting Wednesday, “is today really about to happen?” Earlier in the week, he jokingly thanked Pink for getting sick so he could skip a dentist appointment for the event.
DeGeneres and Ferguson also tweeted following the event.
