The price of being the Celebrity-in-Chief is costly as evidenced by the reported $2 million price tag for the president’s trip to California to fundraise and follow mega liberal Sean Penn on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
According to a report by Andrew Malcolm of Investors Business Daily the flight on Air Force One alone cost taxpayer $206,000 per hour, or approximately $1 million each way.
The Twitterverse was not too pleased about the tag team combination of Penn and Obama, with one tweeter even writing “The Marxist stars have aligned.”

They also weren’t too thrilled with the price tag.

Oh and he did manage to mention the two cops getting shot in Ferguson, on a late night talk show. Not exactly the same way he rushed to the defense of Mike Brown.
