SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) – The President’s brief stop in San Diego is burning up social media. One San Diegan met President Obama at MCAS Miramar and shares his experience with CBS News 8.

Jeff Berger, the assistant director for Human Resources at the Hyatt Grand in downtown San Diego, says he went with a friend who knew somebody but kept it classified after that.

"All political views set aside, to be able to meet the leader of the free world was a tremendous experience I will always remember. It was really special,” said Berger.

Other people were not so impressed with the traffic and that President Obama did not visit outside of La Jolla.

President Obama stopped in San Diego as part of his three-day fundraiser swing in California. He attended a $10,000 per-person luncheon at the home of Qualcomm founder Irwin Jacobs.

The fundraiser is for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

The President also stopped in Los Angeles and San Jose.
