Hillary Clinton is saying a formal goodbye to the millionaire donors that propped up her campaign. The defeated Democratic nominee will enjoy one more glitzy party Thursday night in New York City with the cultural elites before her campaign finally departs into the history books.
Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine are throwing a party at the Plaza hotel on Dec. 15 to thank those who donated millions to the campaign.
The party will be held in the Grand Ballroom on the third floor, to honor the Hillary for America finance leadership council.
Guests expected are big bundlers including Harvey Weinstein, Anna Wintour, Alan Patricof, Tory Burch and Marc Lasry.
One insider said, “Hopefully there’s no balconies so nobody can jump.”
Clinton’s right-hand woman Huma Abedin is not a sure thing to appear at the event, according to a new magazine profile that documents Abedin’s declining stature in Clinton-World since Hillary’s loss to Trump. Vanity Fair reports:
On December 15, Clinton is having a big party in Manhattan at the Plaza Hotel, once owned by Trump, for her campaign donors, as a sort of thank-you and keep-in-touch farewell. It is expected to cost more than $100,000 and be paid for with excess campaign funds. Clintonworld insiders will be interested to see if Abedin shows up or whether she chooses to skip the celebration to stay at home to nurse her wounds.
The irony here is that Donald Trump owned the Plaza Hotel from 1988 to 1995, and the hotel still bears his inimitable imprint. Trump massively renovated the hotel and added new chandeliers, a fitness center, and a Japanese restaurant among other improvements.
