Nancy Pelosi also was to speak, with a photo line that included Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY), chairman of the DCCC, as well as Rep. Steven Horsford (D-NV), Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA), Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) and Rep. Dina Titus (D-NV).

Carsey, co-founder of the powerhouse production company behind shows such as Roseanne and The Cosby Show, has been a longtime contributor to Democrats. She has given a total of $200,000 this cycle to the Nancy Pelosi Victory Fund, a joint committee of the DCCC, Pelosi’s campaign committee and her political action committee.

Earlier in the day, Biden appeared with Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), who he has endorsed in the Los Angeles mayor’s race, at a Los Angeles Metro construction site to talk about the infrastructure law. “Mr. Mayor and soon-to-be mayor,” Biden said, referring to Eric Garcetti and Bass.

The president addressed the latest report on inflation, saying, “Folks don’t need a report to tell them they’re being squeezed.” He said that although there has been progress at bringing down gas prices, ” also need to make more progress bringing down the prices across the board.”

The president did not address the news that has shaken City Hall, after the Los Angeles Times published the leaked audio of a conversation between three council members and top labor officials. In the call, Nury Martinez can be heard making racist remarks about a colleague’s Black son, and then disparaging comments about other ethnic groups. She resigned her seat on Wednesday. Biden had called on her to step down as well as the two other council members on the call, Kevin de Leon and Gil Cedillo. They remain on the council.

Biden later went with Bass and County Supervisor Hilda Solis and bought tacos at Tacos 1986.
