JBJ catches a ride to NYC on AF1

President Obama made a quick trip to New York City on Monday night for some fundraiser but he took along a very important guest on Air Force One: singer Jon Bon Jovi. He was already on board when the travel pool boarded but they did catch a glimpse of him getting off the plane, according to pool reports. JBJ will headline one of tonight's fundraisers when he gives a musical performance at the event at the Waldorf Astoria.

Bon Jovi was appointed to the president's White House Council for Community Solutions back in December 2010. He visited the White House in January to meet about a program to hire at-risk teenagers for summer jobs.

For the record, a White House official tells the pool, "For those of you asking, Bon Jovi's travel was paid for by the campaign."

      AF1 is not a toy for the president, Republican or Democrat. Why not open it for any American that wants a ride and can pass a background check?

    Yes, Judy, but don't you know, when THIS president does something, it is always wrong, corrupt, etc., , no matter how many other presidents have done it before. The hypocrisy is stunning.

    Like Biden said: Republicans "Don't Get Us, They Don't Get Who We Are"
    That's right. We do not understand how, on one hand, you can claim you are for the common guy yet we only see you with rock stars.
