Obama: “Trump is not succeeding me!”

President Obama at Hollywood Fundraiser

He assured attendees at fundraiser that “Trump is not succeeding me.”  

Speaking at a high-dollar, celebrity-attended fundraiser in Los Angeles Thursday, President Obama said, “I recognize that there is a deep obsession right now about Mr. Trump. And one of you pulled me aside and squeezed me hard and said, ‘Tell me … that Mr. Trump is not succeeding you!’ And I said, ‘Mr. Trump’s not succeeding me,'” the president said Thursday.

Obama also said the Republican front-runner and his rival Texas Senator Ted Cruz, should be “thanked” for expressing the sentiments felt by some in the Republican Party and likened them to “nonsense thinking.”

“Mr. Trump has actually done a service as Mr. Cruz is doing a service and that is laying bare, unvarnished some of the nonsense that we have been dealing with in Congress on a daily basis. People act as if these folks are outliers but they are not,” the president said.

“We should thank Mr. Trump and Mr. Cruz for just being honest that this is how we’re thinking these days, or not thinking these days. But it gives you a sense of what’s at stake in this election.

The Thursday night fundraiser was held at the Bel-Air home of Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn and his wife Cindy, an environmental activist. Tickets for the event started at $15,000 per couple, including a photo opportunity and dinner, but other tickets ranged as high as $66,800 per couple, including a VIP reception.  Several celebrities, including Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Brad Hall, Gwyneth Paltrow and Julia Roberts attended the fundraiser benefiting the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
