President Obama is reducing wastelines around the White House but increasing his carbon footprint, choosing to fly a personal trainer to Washington from Chicago every week in order to train the Frist Couple and several White House staffers.
“Buy local” apparently doesn’t extend to exercise gurus. And, I don’t know, seems like getting this trainer halfway across the United States every week must cost even more than John Edwards’ famous $400 haircut.
The New York Times wrote a glowing story about how this guy is keeping “the very fit president” and his aides in shape.
Can anyone imagine the uproar in the press if Bush or Cheney were flying a personal trainer in to work them out? But Obama is a Man of the People.
