It has been widely reported in the media that President Bill Clinton recently posed for a photo with a couple of lovely prostitutes at a charity event in Los Angeles called Unite4:Humanity. Of course these “news” items are all about generating traffic with salacious attention grabbing headlines. Fortuneatley for us, Ron Jeremy was also on the scene and he was able to put the whole incident into perspective.
Mr. Clinton took photos with a ton of people that night including some hot celebrities such as Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Cheryl Hines. There was even a “selfie” with Demi Lovato (who is cute but not someone I’d ever heard of) making its way around the Internet. It was the ladies who happen to work at the Bunny Ranch who grabbed the headlines of course. Sure, Clinton has no one but himself to blame for this. The seed was laid back when he was in the Oval Office but to imply anything lascivious was going on here is just a bunch of smoke and mirrors.
This was a big ticket fundraiser and truth be told, if you you’ve got the cheddar to put down for a cause you are going to be welcome at an event like this one. One such person willing to throw down and support Unite4:Good on their mission to “create a kinder world” is Dennis Hof, owner of the internationally famous and completely legal Bunny Ranch Brothel in Nevada. On this night Mr. Hof generously brought along two of his employees and his good friend Ron Jeremy to share in the excitement of the night. If you’ve read Ron’s book, The Hardest (Working) Man in Show Business, you know meeting politicians is nothing new for him but according to Ron this night really was something special.
“I’ve met so many political people over the years”, Ron told me today on the phone. “I have met Governor Schwarzenegger, Canadian Prime Minister Joe Clark, Canadian Conservative Party heavy weight Preston Manning and many Senators and congresspeople from the USA. Secretary of State John Kerry even flashed me a thumbs up at an event once. I also met George Bush Sr. on two separate occasions. I first met him at an Airport and once at the grand opening of Planet Hollywood when I was hanging out with Charlie Sheen. Anyway, the first time I met President Bush I went up to him and shook his hand. It was pretty obvious he had no idea who I was but his Secret Service certainly did. They were giggling and all smiles but to their credit, they did their job and slily prevented those with Cameras from taking any pictures of the two of us. Meeting President Clinton was different. He called out “Ron” as I approached and we shook hands. Again, the Secret Service did an amazing job preventing any photos from being taken. I heard there might be some security camera footage so if that turns up I will be sure and share it with my fans.”
Ron said the highlight of the night was Clinton’s speech which was passionate, moving and inspirational.
After the speech Mt Clinton mingled and took photos with guests which also included the likes of Martin Scorsese, Robert Deniro, Adam Rifkin and Steve Bing. When he was approached by two lovely young ladies for a quick photo op it is not surprising he agreed. Neither he nor his Secret Service knew the profession of these women. If they had it is quite probable the photo would not have been taken. Of course, what these ladies do is legal. They pay taxes. They are contributing members of society. They deserve representation from politicians just like everyone else. On this night they were out to support a good cause. Their line of work was irrelevant.
I guess you can’t fault the likes of the Daily Mail and TMZ for trying to make something juicy out of nothing but I also hope no one uses this to find any fault with the President. If anything he deserves kudos for being a nice guy who puts himself out there and is willing to spend time with his fans. It is pretty cool these hard working women had this opportunity to rub elbows in a room predominantly filled with celebrities and billionaires.
