Rock-and-roll musician and songwriter Jon Bon Jovi who is the lead singer of the rock group Bon Jovi was seen at New York City’s JFK Airport on Monday. Quite surprisingly, he was spotted getting off of President Barack Obama’s Air Force One aircraft.
Though previously unannounced by the White House, the rock-and-roller flew to New York City with Obama on Air Force One. Bon Jovi was the featured-performer for approximately 500 Obama-supporters at the Waldorf-Astoria.
The White House eventually confirmed to the press – who spotted Jon Bon Jovi at the airport – that the entertainer and the president had flown together in Air Force One.
Former President Bill Clinton was also to appear at the evening’s New York fundraising events.
According to a White House official, Bon Jovi was being transported as a guest of the President.
The Bon Jovi affair was one of three Obama fundraisers in the Big Apple on Monday which was expected to earn $4,000,000 for Obama’s re-election campaign.
Another event during the evening which received political reaction from the right was the $40,000-per-person fundraiser at Marc Lasry’s home. Lasry is the founder and head of Avenue Capital – a Wall Street hedge fund. The third event was a performance on Broadway by a host of name persons.
The White House claims that Jon Bon Jovi’s air transportation on the nation’s elite aircraft was paid for by President Barack Obama’s campaign fund.
