Alicia Keys to Perform at Obama’s Gotham Hall Fundraiser

President Obama will be back in New York City on September 20 for a fundraiser at Gotham Hall.

It’s being billed as a special appearance — even amid a busy slate of local events for the president — because the first lady will be joining him.

And now — it seems — so will Alicia Keys.

An updated copy of the invitation was just sent out by Suffolk County legislator — and prominent Long Island fundraiser — Jon Cooper announcing that Keys will be a featured performer at the gala dinner.

Tickets start at $2,500, and $100,000 will get you on the host committee.

Keys was in attendance, but didn’t perform, at a star-studded fundraiser for the president a few weeks ago at Harvey Weinstein’s house.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
