The federal government’s ongoing shutdown has forced First Lady Michelle Obama to scrap her plans for a trip to Los Angeles on Friday, when she was scheduled to headline a $32,000-a-head political fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee at the Hancock Park home of Everybody Loves Raymond creator Philip Rosenthal and his actress wife, Monica.
Her husband made news this weekend by not playing golf, with reporters citing poor optics as the reason, and there’s no end to the shutdown in sight.
