WH Press Corps Ordered to Eat Like Pigs

TIPS FROM THE POOL…INTO THE DEEP END


It’s a good thing first lady Michelle “I eat french fries when my Let’s Move campaign’s not looking” Obama wasn’t around for the spectacle called lunch in Bettendorf, Iowa today.

Taken from another revealing (no sarcasm here, we’re serious) Pool Report by Politico‘s Carrie Budoff Brown is the news that POTUS went straight from the plane to a an unannounced stop at a local 24-hour eatery called Ross’ Restaurant. After descriptions of spicy chili and cheddar cheese-laden sandwiches were given, President Obama made a declaration to the Press Corps:

“Anybody who wants one, I will buy it for you,” he said. But there was a catch: “Anybody in the press corps has to eat the whole thing. I already got some takers on the plane though, so we’re going to order four Magic Mountains and two Volcanos.” Obama asked, “Any takers on the press?” No response, Budoff reported. “You chickens,” Obama said.
