Fresh off his much-discussed endorsement of same-sex marriage on Wednesday, President Obama headed to Hollywood for a high-profile fundraiser at George Clooney's private home that raised a whopping $15 million dollars.

On Thursday's edition of "The Daily Show," Jon Stewart offered his take on the glitzy Tinsel Town meeting of "the most powerful man in the free world" ... and President Obama.

After landing that one-liner, Stewart turned things over to "Senior Hollywood Correspondent" Jason Jones, who reported "live" from the hot-ticket event and gave viewers a glimpse inside Clooney's home.

"President Obama is at a giant Hollywood party the night after he came out for gay marriage. This is like going to Israel after you kill Hitler," Jones joked.
