VIDEO: First Lady Michelle Obama's Motorcade Arrives for Fundraiser

First Lady Michelle Obama arrives to speak at a luncheon campaign fundraiser at the Calabasas home of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith Thursday.

Both supporters of President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney rallied Thursday as First Lady Michelle Obama's motorcade arrived outside the home of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith for a fundraiser.

Obama was scheduled to speak at the $2,500-minimum plate luncheon, which began at 11:30 a.m. The fundraiser benefits the Obama Victory Fund 2012 and was expected to draw the likes of Salma Hayek, Kawanna Brown, Rebecca Carter and Mai Lassiter.

Donations of $10,000 will earn attendees a photo with Michelle Obama and for $40,000, they can “co-host” the event, garnering them the opportunity to greet the First Lady in addition to a photo and meal.

Her motorcade, which featured several motorcycle deputies, patrol vehicles and SUVs arrived about 1:20 p.m.

Outside the home, both supporters of President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney rallied with signs and T-shirts.

The Pinkett-Smith home is located off Muhlloand Highway in Calabasas, which is just above Malibu.

Check out the old foolish white people protesting. Jokers. Why are they even there? Wish they would go back to Mississippi cerca 1955.

Those "old foolish white people" probably live there. But way to articulate your ignorance.

What do the romnesia supporters. Hope to gain by rallying there? To make the Obama supporters paying for the luncheon switch their votes? Pointless. Trying to make the first lady feel unwelcome. Pointless. Bitter faced jackasses promoting meanspirited. Negativity will not win the day for this country. Spread love, not hate. And get a life.

You are absolutely right what were they thinking? Oh wait, for a second I thought I was in Syria where you can't voice an opinion without getting shot at. Tell me how "Go Romney" is bitter or mean spirited? What, people can't voice an opposing view?
