Where does political polarization end? The Hamptons.
On Saturday, some of the world’s most powerful politicians, celebrities, and billionaires from both sides of the aisle congregated at Washington Post editor Lally Weymouth’s Southampton home for champagne, cocktails, and fried chicken. The star-studded guest list included Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, George Soros, Kellyanne Conway, Steven Spielberg, Bill Bratton, David Koch, Carl Icahn, and Sen. Chuck Schumer, among others.
Twitter was less than thrilled.

On Monday, guests are expected to resume partisan warfare.
Update: The article previously incorrectly identified Charles Koch as attending the party. It was actually David Koch who attended the event.
