President Obama wraps up his week with a relatively light schedule on tap. He’ll have lunch off-campus somewhere with winners of a campaign contest. (It will be his second off-campus lunch this week!) Then the main event for Friday is a late-afternoon reception in the East Room for LGBT Pride Month. He gave a campaign speech last Wednesday in Los Angeles at a LGBT fundraiser. “I could not be prouder of the work that we’ve done on behalf of the LGBT community,” Obama said last week. “The fight for equality and justice on behalf of the LGBT community is just part of a broader fight on behalf of all Americans. It’s part of our history of trying to make this Union a little bit more perfect.” We should expect similar language as he makes remarks at 5:10p.
Beyond that, he’ll leave this evening for a weekend in Chicago (his third trip there in the last month.) The whole family is going with him this time where they will spend the weekend at their house. He’ll have no public events on his schedule for the weekend but Valerie Jarrett’s daughter is getting married on Saturday a few blocks from his house.
