Obamas host lavish dinner party for French president

By KTTH | February 13, 2014

Is this some kind of weird fever dream?

Between Tuesday and Wednesday, President Barack Obama acted out the most vivid and insane examples of hypocrisy ever.

KTTH host Rush Limbaugh is reporting that on Tuesday night, Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama hosted French President Francois Hollande for an ultra-extravagant dinner party at the White House.

Then, on Wednesday, Obama was back beating the drum over “income inequality,” signing a measure to raise federal contractors’ minimum wage to $10.10 per hour.

One day Barack and Michelle are getting dressed up in designer duds to party with the president of France, dining on quail eggs and dry-aged steak (for real), and the next day Obama is back talking about income inequality?

Hollande’s visit has been an interesting one for Obama. Earlier this week, Obama got caught saying he can “do whatever he wants” while touring Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello estate in Virginia with the Frenchman. The remark was in reference to his making a move unapproved by his Secret Service detail, but many have turned it into a slogan for a president who has recently threatened to use executive power to push his agenda.

Here’s Limbaugh’s full description of the Hollande party from his show:

“Last night the president of France, Francois Hollande, and the Obamas and 350 of their closest friends dined on caviar and quail eggs, dry-aged rib-eye steak served with blue cheese, charred shallots, oyster mushrooms, and braised chard.  They dined in the gigantic tent lavishly decorated to replicate a Monet painting of spring in sunny France.  Outside the tent, 17 degrees.

“For dessert, they enjoyed cake made with chocolate from Hawaii, Florida tangerines, and cotton candy dusted with orange zest.  Michelle Obama wore a designer dress estimated to have cost $12,000, designed by Carolina Herrera.

“They’re living like royalty!  And they’re doing so on purpose, and they’re flaunting it, and then this silly notion that the economy is up enough now, and it’s “important for us to entertain the French.”  Why?  Why is it important for us to entertain the French, and on whose evidence is the economy up?  Oh, yeah, but, you know, that was smoke and mirrors, too.”
