Hillary Clinton will be mingling with the Muppets at her next Hollywood fundraiser — or with their creators at least.

The Democratic presidential frontrunner is set to return to Los Angeles on Jan. 7 for an event at the Jim Henson Co. studios lot in Hollywood.

Hosted by Lisa Henson (Jim and Jane’s daughter and current CEO) and David Pressler, the fundraiser is described as a “family celebration with Hillary Rodham Clinton” in an online invitation. Admission ranges from $500 to $2,700 for “champions” of her political cause.

Clinton went on a California fundraising spree last month, which included a private concert at the home of Christina Aguilera and her producer fiancé, Matthew Rutler.

Clinton was also a guest on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” on Thursday, where she told the NBC host that she believes Donald Trump has crossed a line to the point where he is no longer a laughing matter.

“You know, I have to say, Seth, I no longer think he is funny,” she said, referring to the GOP presidential frontrunner’s recent plan to ban all Muslims from entering the U.S.

“I think for weeks you and everybody else were just bringing folks to hysterical laughter, but now he has gone way over the line,” she continued. “And what he is saying now is not only shameful and wrong, it is dangerous.”
