Full title: 'Cheese artisans' will feed French premier at outdoor White House State Dinner, followed by Mary J. Blige concert but please, no dancing: Hollande is sans date!
French President Francois Hollande is going stag, but the Obama administration is pulling out all the stops to entertain him with a State Dinner full of pomp, circumstance, gourmet eats, and R&B music.
The Bronx singer, rapper and record producer Mary J. Blige will perform after the meal, the White House announced Monday.
L'affaire américaine will take place outdoors, in a tent on the South Lawn. Secret Service will have extra protection arrayed along the perimeter of the White House property.
Under the tent, White House Executive Chef Cris Comerford will serve up the best of America, with a noted nod to the French.
'This event highlights the talents of our Nations cheese artisans,' the printed program says.

Has anyone noticed that it's WINTER in Washington DC? What the heck is the President doing entertaining OUTDOORS? There is a major snowstorm bearing down on them this week.
does the cheese shop make deliveries?
No Beyoncé? [snicker]
The people in the White House make me want to puke!!
I’m afraid that he believes his on BS about global warming.
“A winter garden salad of mixed radish and baby carrots served on merlot lettuce ‘’pays tribute to The First Ladys White House Kitchen Garden,’ according to the program, but the White House stopped short of saying the veggies actually came from Mrs. Obama’s garden.”
BTW, I really hope they don’t serve the salad the way it’s being presented in the photo. But they probably will, as it’s pretentious and artsy-fartsy (and thus, “avant-garde”).
BTW, if “cheese artisans” are going to be feeding them, why is the meal also including dry-aged ribeyes?
In honor of the Beatles' appearance on Ed Sullivan fifty years ago this week, I quote the immortal John Lennon: "Avant-garde-- is French for Bullshit."
I quite agree.
Nice Party: snacks of cheese and surrender-monkey paw. mmm.
And Champagne. And Cocaine! Cocaine, a little blow when you can afford it!
Millions out of work. obama’s take on it? Let them eat cheese.
Hope they choke or overdose.
Because the French don’t have enough cheese.
Maybe they will return the favor and fix Obama corn the next time he visits.
Before ObamaCare there were no Cheese artisans, but with ObamaCare workers could quit and follow their dream to become a Cheese artisan! Thank you Nancy!
