The 3rd annual “Global Citizen Festival” to bring awareness to world poverty is being held today in New York City’s Central Park, complete with MSNBC’s finest as hosts and special music guests. Like Carrie Underwood!

New York City mayor Bill de Blasio was there, too. When’s the “Global Groundhog Festival” we wonder?

Will “de Blasio killed a groundhog” jokes ever get old? We hope not.
President Obama even attended — via video:

Via video because he was golfing today:
On spectacular Autumn day, Pres Obama playing golf at Ft. Belvoir. Foursome includes Tony Kornheiser.

How does golfing fit in with world poverty? Oh, well … what do we know.
With that said, ladies and gentleman, start the mocking!

I wonder if progressives ever get tired of utterly meaningless moral posturing. #GlobalCitizenFestival

I would have gone to the #GlobalCitizenFestival but alas, I have no trust fund.
