Biden A List Star Studded Fundraiser Glaringly Omits One Celebrity: George Clooney’s Wife, Amal


There were quite a few celebs last night in Los Angeles at the Biden fundraiser.

But one was glaringly missing: Amal Clooney.

Amal’s husband, George, was a co-host of the evening along with Julia Roberts and Jimmy Kimmel.

There were lots of politicans including former President Barack Obama.

Joe Biden was accompanied by his wife, Dr. Jill Biden. She was introduced by no less than Barbra Streisand.

Other celebs included Kathy Griffin, who came as the guest of Victor Shi, as well as Jack Black, Kathryn Hahn, Jason Bateman, and Sheryl Lee Ralph. Two of three leaders of Creative Artists Agency — Bryan Lourd, Richard Lovett — were present as well.

But no sign of Amal. We had an idea she would not be part of this event. A couple of weeks ago, Amal — who is a human rights lawyer — wrote the paper for the International Criminal Court asking for the arrest warrant of Benjamin Netanyahu. That might have been an uncomfortable meeting, certainly.
