Kimmel: 'Obama Was in LA With His Agent Taking Meetings in Case it Doesn't Work Out Next Month'

As NewsBusters reported, Barack Obama did a lavish fundraiser at the Nokia Theater in Hollywood on Sunday.

According to comedian Jimmy Kimmel, the President was in Los Angeles "with his agent taking meetings in case it doesn't work out next month" (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary).

Early in his Jimmy Kimmel Live opening monologue on ABC Monday, the host said, "President Obama was here in Los Angeles last night. He was here with his agent taking meetings in case it doesn't work out next month. Never be too careful."

Actually, as beloved as Obama is in Hollywood, he'll likely get job offers within minutes of his concession speech if Mitt Romney wins.

Kimmel added, "The President was here for a fundraiser, a concert with Stevie Wonder, Katy Perry, Earth, Wind and Fire, Jennifer Hudson, Jon Bon Jovi, and a special appearance by George Clooney. If Obama goes more than a month without seeing George Clooney he gets nervous."

Especially after one of the worst debate performances by a sitting president in history.
