President Obama

Rubbing Elbows at Fundraiser

With Tumblr CEO

7/19/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0719-david-karp-getty-01The guy who created Tumblr is hobnobbing with big wigs after selling the company to Yahoo for $1.1 billion ... something he proved by sitting next to President Obama Thursday at a fundraiser.

The duo was at an intimate fundraiser this week in New York at the home of a big time investment manager ... which means Tumblr CEO David Karp made a good impression last month when he interviewed the prez.

Karp and Obama didn't talk much at the fundraiser, according to the NY Post, but they discussed all sorts of things during the interview ... including how to pronounce GIF.

Sorry Tom from Myspace.

Fund raising for what? He needs to be focused on his job.

That's what the internet's done, made millionaires and billionaires out of twenty-something-year-olds. And why not? No disrespect, but the old folks can't have all the money.

Truth    

Somebody should tell Obama that he doesn't need to campaign anymore. But sense that's the only thing he can do well, the campaign goes on.

Obama is the worst president ever! Instead of him running around like a ****ing celeb on the campaign trail, he needs to keep his ass in his office trying to save his ****ed up country! America has become the spoilt apple of the barrel. He better watch out that PUT IN doesn't deploy his arsenal on his ass. Blame fame!

But wait a minute........ according to obama David Karp didn't "build that" (tumbler).

Also I though money was evil according to the Democratic party, funny how Democrats have no problem taking some of that "evil money".

The Poser in Chief.
The Liar in Chief.

He's a Politically Correct 'Thought' that fooled many and still does some. Yet his actions show much different. He was a mistake.... twice.

We 'all' will be feeling and experiencing his 'Incompetence' for yeeears to come.

Don't care the color, sex or party... just want an 'Honest' and Real Leader with 'all' our interests at hand.
He's had only his 'own'. And it clearly shows.

PIncorrect    

Russia shooting down civilian planes with Americans on it, Israel fighting off terrorist groups like Hamas, Iraq falling to the supposedly dead Al Qaeda, illegals flooding the boarder...all a day that ends in "y" for Hollywood's favorite American hating first family. Then it's off to Martha's Vineyard for yet ANOTHER vacation at a $12 million dollar estate for 15 days before heading to Italy for Clooney's political arrangement ceremony. Yet he tells the minions the REPUBLICANS don't work. He can suck it.
