Kamala Harris partied with Hollywood elites as inflation and gas prices crush American families

Vice President Kamala Harris reportedly spent her recent time in Los Angeles partying with Hollywood elites and visiting some of her favorite restaurants, as ordinary Americans everywhere continue to be crushed by runaway inflation and soaring gas prices.

The vice president was in Los Angeles for the Summit of the Americas earlier this month and used some of her leisure time to rub shoulders with Hollywood powerhouses who supported her political career.

Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff, took the vice president’s motorcade to the home of CAA’s Bryan Lourd and her husband, Bruce Bozzi, for a dinner described as “a gathering of old friends,” according to a report in The Hollywood Reporter.

Among the attendees were CAA boss Kevin Huvane, Barry Diller and mega TV producer Greg Berlanti and his husband, football star Robbie Rogers.

Also present were Saturday night live star Maya Rudolph, who has played Harris several times on TV, and her husband, licorice pizza filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson; and the west wingis Allison Janney.

Harris and Emhoff reportedly stayed at their Brentwood home during their visit to Los Angeles. The couple also had dinner one night at one of their favorite restaurants, El Cholo, in Santa Monica. Their night reportedly required two dozen officers on motorcycles and more than 50 on bicycles, as well as several Secret Service vehicles parked around the neighborhood.

Kamala Harris’ lavish visit to Los Angeles comes as ordinary Americans continue to face crushing inflation and gas prices that continue to reach record levels. The national average price of a gallon of gasoline recently surpassed $5 for the first time. Meanwhile, inflation rose to a staggering 8.6 percent in May, a four-decade high.

Food prices soared further, with the price of meat and eggs up a staggering 14.6% and dairy products up 11.8%.

President Joe Biden also rubbed shoulders with Hollywood royalty during his visit to Los Angeles. Biden and First Lady Jill Biden attended a fundraiser held by billionaire mega-Democrat Haim Saban and his wife, Cheryl.
