Wonder what President Obama thought of "Turbo"?
After his Tuesday night appearance on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno,” Obama met for dinner with a longtime friend and Democratic donor, DreamWorks Animation SKG Chief Executive Jeffrey Katzenberg.
The two dined alone at the Hilton Woodland Hills, the president’s hotel, according to the White House pool report Wednesday.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney declined to say who picked up the check, the pool report said.
Katzenberg, who has a net worth of $957 million, according to the Los Angeles Business Journal, has long been known for his contributions to the Democratic war chest.
In the last presidential election cycle, Katzenberg and his wife, Marilyn, donated more than $3.5 million to Democratic campaigns and spending groups, including $3 million to pro-Obama super PAC Priorities USA, $2 million of which he donated in 2011.
He has also hosted fundraisers. In May last year, for example, he organized a $40,000-a-ticket event at the Studio City home of George Clooney to raise funds for Obama’s reelection campaign.
A DreamWorks Animation spokesman declined to comment.
