One could say Hillary Clinton was awash in money. Then again, what’s new?

Lively Bernie Sanders supporters “showered” Clinton‘s motorcade with 1000 $1 bills Saturday night as she arrived at a fancy schmancy $34,000-a-plate Hollywood fundraiser.

The event took place at the home of actor George Clooney in Los Angeles and among the liberal elite in attendance were Jeffrey and Marilyn Katzenberg, Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw, according to The Hill.

Fittingly, a competing fundraiser was held right next door by Clooney’s neighbor, whose family founded the 99 Cents Only store chain. The ticket price was a much more economical $27-a-head — these folks helped form a welcome party for Hillary as she arrived next door.

Turns out Clooney had a busy weekend, with the actor hosting a fundraiser for Clinton Friday night in San Francisco, along with his wife, Amal Clooney, according to

That event was held at the home of venture capitalist Shervin Pishevar and Sanders supporters turned out there as well.

“Only in America would an Iranian-born immigrant son of a taxi driver and maid trying to help elect our first woman president be protested at his home,” Pishevar told The Guardian.

Throwing $1 bills at Hillary was a big hit with the “Feel the Bern” crowd, who saw the idea as “brilliant.” Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
