At the glitzy fundraiser for President Joe Biden’s campaign Saturday in Downtown L.A., a host of politicos lined up to shake hands with the president, and also with former President Barack Obama, who shared “co-star” billing with his former boss.

Elected officials at the event at the Peacock Theater at LA Live included Gov. Gavin ɫ̳om, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Los Angeles, and L.A. Mayor Karen Bass.

Celebrities in the house included George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Jeff Ross, Jon Cryer, Jack Black, Jason Bateman, Kathryn Hahn and a surprise guest star, Barbra Streisand. Late night host Jimmy Kimmel served as the emcee.

Joining the photo line with Biden and Obama were:

  • Rep. Ted Lieu (CA-36)
  • Rep. Joe Neguse (CO-2)
  • Rep. Maxine Waters (CA-43)
  • Rep. Grace Napolitano (CA-31)
  • Rep. Annie Kuster (NH-2)
  • Rep. Julia Brownley (CA-26)
  • Rep. Salud Carbajal (CA-24)
  • Rep. Raul Ruiz (CA-25)
  • Rep. Mark Takano (CA-39)
  • Rep. Tony Cardenas (CA-29)
  • Rep. Nanette Barragán (CA-44)
