President Obama today tried to pay for four apples with one dollar. Now, if Bush did this, can you imagine the uproar??
According to this afternoon’s press pool report from Philadelphia, where Obama is traveling, the president made a surprise visit to the Reading Terminal Market, which contains numerous stalls selling all kinds of delicacies.
Obama shook hands with customers in front of the falafel stall and ordered a couple of cheese steak sandwiches with sweet peppers and mushrooms, just like any self-respecting Philly guy would do.
Then the fruit vendor called out, “President Obama how ’bout an apple? Something healthy too.” Obama grabbed four apples and gave the salesman a dollar.
Recognizing the error, Obama personal aide Reggie Love quickly stepped in with some more money for the fruit seller, who had just been ripped off by the leader of the free world.
On the way out, Obama went straight back to his unhealthy ways and ordered a small mint chocolate chip ice cream cone.
So much for Michelle Obama’s healthy eating campaign. Kids, do as I say, not as I do!
