    Correspondent Samantha Bee poked fun at Parker's Obama fundraiser and her famous HBO series, "Sex and the City."

    On Monday's edition of "The Daily Show," correspondent Samantha Bee mocked the Obama campaign's fundraiser at the home of actress Sarah Jessica Parker with a clever parody of "Sex and the City."

    Bee starred in the video skit as a caricature of Parker's popular alter ego, Carrie Bradshaw. Debating whether to "go to the party or not," Bee turned to real-life pundits like The Nation's Ari Melber and MSNBC's S.E. Cupp, who offered political analysis of the fundraiser. Meanwhile, Bee ruthlessly skewered familiar tropes from "Sex and the City."

    When Bee showed up to Parker's fundraiser in a giant ballet tutu — an allusion to the opening credits of the popular HBO series — she was turned away by security. Ultimately, Bee concluded, she didn't have what Carrie Bradshaw has (and President Obama needs): "powerful friends and an enormous and available line of credit."
