Via The Blaze:
President Barack Obama is scheduled to attend two Democratic fundraisers in New York City Thursday evening.
The political activity apparently is not ceasing despite the Malaysian jet that was downed earlier Thursday over Ukraine killing 295 people. A Ukrainian government official has alleged the plane was shot down.
The fundraisers were scheduled more than a week ago.
According to the White House schedule, Obama will attend a Democratic National Committee fundraiser at a private home in New York at 5:45 p.m. Then at 7:30 p.m., the president will attend a fundraiser at another private home to raise money for the House Majority PAC, which supports House Democratic candidates.
At 2:25 p.m., the White House press office e-mailed a response to an inquiry from TheBlaze, “No scheduling changes to be reported at this time.”
