Thought Obamajam was over? Think again.

President Obama’s motorcade will course through the streets of Los Angeles on Tuesday for what could be the last time before his term in office comes to an end.

This week’s two-day trip to Los Angeles began Monday afternoon when Air Force One landed at Los Angeles International Airport.

From there, he stopped at “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” in Hollywood, where he read mean tweets about himself.

The president later went to the home of Marilyn and Jeff Katzenberg for a fundraiser benefiting Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Committee and state Democratic parties.

On Tuesday, Obama is scheduled to appear at the Beverly Hills home of “Scream Queens” creator Ryan Murphy and David Miller for a “roundtable discussion” to benefit the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. Co-hosted by Jennifer Perry and Andy Spahn, the event is $33,400 per person.

Officials on warned of possible traffic problems in Los Angeles around the following areas and times:

—Sunset Boulevard between Woodburn and Palm drives between 10 a.m. and 12:45 p.m.
