Obama Campaign To Sell Massive Amount of Drugs at 'The Wire' Fundraiser

News

Everyone likesThe Wire! You like it, the critics like it, and all white people really just can't get enough of it. President Obama has called it his favorite show. Well shucks, why not just throw a The Wire-themed fundraiser... on Martha's Vineyard, with a $500 minimum contribution, keeping with the show's spirit. Obama won't be there personally, traipsing about the Vineyard eating cilantro lime shrimp butts with a criminal syndicate, from television. Optics, man. But what about show creator David Simon, who simply does not care for the way that Democrats have kept the War on Drugs going?


Here's the announcement from the Sunlight Foundation:

The Obama campaign's celebrity fundraisers never cease to amaze: On Aug. 15, in Martha's Vineyard, the cast of the gritty TV series, "The Wire" will be in attendance at one of them, according to a invitation obtained by Party Time.

The event will be held at the home of Judy and Ron Davenport. There are few clues as to which of the numerous actors on "The Wire" will be in attendance.

The cost of the event ranges form $500 to $2,500 a person. While President Obama is on record stating The Wire is his favorite TV show, he is not scheduled to be at the event.

We'd always thought of this love as an awkward thing, given David Simon's antagonism towards the administration's handling of the War on Drugs (short version: the Obama administration has continued it):

When David Simon, creator of HBO's late dramatic crime series "The Wire," heard that Attorney General Eric Holder wanted to see the series return for a sixth season, he offered the nation's top prosecutor a deal.

He'll start working on a sequel season, Simon responded in an email to the Times of London, "if the Department of Justice is equally ready to reconsider and address its continuing prosecution of our misguided, destructive and dehumanizing drug prohibition."

Former Colorado state legislator and internet-elevangelist Gordon Klingenschmitt (his name is my name too) knows why we hate Trump. Is it because he is a terrible person and a terrible President? Is it because he says horrible things all of the time? Is it because he had the motherfucking gall to refer to Aretha Franklin as someone who worked for him?

Trump supporters -- you can't take them anywhere. One idiot Trump supporter in Sacramento, California proved that at a recent Social Distortion show, where he thought it might be a good idea to be a dick to lead singer Mike Ness, the most perfect human man in all of existence. It did not go well.
