President Bill Clinton

Chows Down w/ Celebs ...

Shishito Peppers On Me!

President Bill Clinton
isn't just a fantastic giver of speeches -- he's also a fantastic giver of dinners ... just ask Ted Danson and the other celebs who dined with the prez Monday night ... and didn't have to drop a dime.

The former prez hit up The Churchill -- a swanky restaurant and bar in L.A -- after attending a fundraising event for his non-profit organization, The Clinton Foundation

Clinton didn't come alone, he rolled in with a few famous friends ... specifically Danson ... Mayor Villaraigosa ... and actress Mary Steenburgen -- who all attended the event as well.

Sources on scene tell TMZ ... the group -- about 20 in all -- noshed on yuppie foods like, roasted black mission figs ... shishito peppers ... quinoa veggie burgers ... and Okinawan sweet potato gnocchi.

We're told, being the awesome host he is, Clinton then picked up the tab -- which set him back somewhere between $1,000 - $1,500.

Which is like .0015% of his net worth.

The guy has a set of steel balls on him.
Lies on TV to the American Public and they still love him.
Says a lot about the American Idol mentality we have.
Ted Danson?
Ted would marry Bill if his wife allowed him to.
What a joke!

He's not president anymore so stop calling these guys president. It's just Bill Clinton or George Bush.

Los Angeles Mayor Tony Villar is such a suck-up troll. This guy took the State of California bar exam 1-2-3-4 TIMES and failed 'em all. He went on to head up the ACLU LA office, get elected to the State Assembly and become Speaker, and now Mayor. Failing up!! Did you see his debacle at the Democratic National Convention. This dumbo could be the next Governor of California...just because he's a La Tino. Rub your Guadalupe statues and pray it doesn't happen!!

TMZ, do you think we could care less were that former impeached president eats? Good lord you people are shallow. By the way, the speech Clinton gave didn't help Odumba, he is on his way out of office.

Really it is his money to spend on dinner so not sure why the amount was put out there. Interesting that the Mayor was there. Having said that it is so odd the kind of almost upbeat tone to the article as if no big deal(which it is not it is as I said his money)and the completely different tone of the article when Ann Romney was in town to do an appearance and the amount she paid for a salad and her visit to a popular dining place was treated as if how dare she? Big difference in the optics presented of the husband of the Secretary of State serving and the wife of a candidate..........talk about irony.

I'm sure taxpayers paid for it. Clinton and Obama need to disappear, we need real leadership.
