WHITE HOUSE DOGS WEAR JEWELRY as America Suffers

President Barack Obama and his wife First Lady Michelle Obama rubbed their royal attitudes in the noses of long-suffering Americans today.
While King Obama was pronouncing, ”That’s the good thing as a President, I can do whatever I want”, Queen Obama sent out a photograph of the family dogs wearing jewels, seated at a table representing Tuesday’s state dinner in honor of President Francois Hollande of France. The photo was captioned, “Bone appétit!”
King Obama backed up his ” …as a President, I can do whatever I want”, with yet another unlawful exemption to Obamacare announced this afternoon.
The menu for the state dinner, as reported by the Associated Press:
“The first course will feature American Osetra caviar, farmed from the estuaries of Illinois, paired with quail eggs from Pennsylvania and a dozen varieties of potatoes from farms in New York, Idaho and California.
“That will be followed by a salad of petite radishes and baby carrots on a bed of lettuce and splashed with red-wine vinaigrette made using honey from the beehive on the South Lawn. The salad will be served in a clear, glass bowl and resemble a terrarium.
“The main course, dry-aged rib eye beef from a farm in Greeley, Colo., will be served with blue cheese, charred shallots, oyster mushrooms and braised chard.
“Dessert is chocolate malted cake, described as a modern version of a layer cake made with bittersweet chocolate from Obama’s native Hawaii, Florida tangerines and served with vanilla ice cream from Pennsylvania. After dinner, guests can dip into a serving dish made entirely of sugar to sample fudge made of Vermont maple syrup, shortbread cookies made with lavender from Mrs. Obama’s garden and cotton candy dusted with orange zest.”
Any resemblance by the Obamas to France’s King Louis XVI and his wife Queen Marie Antoinette prompted by the visit of France’s president is pure coincidence, oui? How about impeachmints for just desserts instead?
