Making everyone else's Valentine's Day plans look lame in comparison, President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama splurged with meal at Minibar last night.

Bacon and chocolate, si...you can throw everything else in the dumpster where it belongs. You’ll starve with those portions, anyhow...
Well I would have left and went for a cheeseburger cause that all looks like foo foo crap to me. Lol
Is that real food?
If someone had taken me there - after seeing the silly food being served. I would have ordered a Beer and left as soon as it was drained. I would not be sipping! Krap who eats idiotic foolish stuff like this?
Well isn’t that just precious.
The one guy sprayed a taste of a drink in his mouth, ridiculous!
So the girl with that blog isn’t old enough to drink alcohol but can afford to pay $250 a piece to eat at somewhere like that, and it isn’t her first tasting menu?
Minibar. Isn’t that where you can get a beer and a Snickers in your room at a Holiday Inn?
Uppity Obamas. Uppity, uppity, uppity.
“Man am I glad this photo op is done..let's head to Mickey D's!”
Let those in foreclosure eat cake.
That just sounds disgusting, now matter who’s eating it.
