Bill and Hillary Clinton were in attendance at a billionaire Democratic donor’s wedding Sunday along with President Trump’s daughter Tiffany.
The wedding was that of Sophie Lasry, daughter to billionaire hedge fund manager and Democratic donor Marc Lasry and Alex Swieca. Alex is also the son of a billionaire hedge fund manager, Henry Swieca. Hillary sported a light blue dress to the affair and Bill wore a matching kippah for the Jewish ceremony as reported by The Jerusalem Post.
Other stars spotted entering the wedding were Jennifer Lopez and boyfriend Alex Rodriguez, as well as Trump’s daughter. Clinton aide Huma Abedin was also in attendance.
Tiffany Trump has flown largely under the radar regarding media scrutiny throughout Trump’s nascent political career.
The Clintons spent the night before reportedly viewing a private screening of “Wonder Woman” at a Brooklyn movie theater, which the failed presidential candidate has compared herself to.
Marc Lasry has been a political player for Democrats in recent years. In 2013, he was considered by the Obama administration for the position of U.S. ambassador to France but declined due to business considerations. Lasry was listed by Forbes in 2014 as one of the top 25 hedge fund managers in terms of earnings, which totaled over $280 million in 2013. He started his investment firm Amroc Investments in 1989 along with his sister, using $100 million of seed money from various investors.
He then went on to start Avenue Capital Group, which focused on distressed debt and has since systematically strengthened his hedge fund which now has over $11 billion in assets under its management. To say he is a major Democratic donor would be an understatement.
