Michelle Lets Governors Gorge on 2,000 Calorie Dinner

The White House Sunday epically failed to practice what its first lady preaches, serving the nation’s governors a more than 2,000 calorie dinner even as Michelle Obama traverses the country promoting health eating.

While Michelle lectures children to cut out the fat and eat their vegetables unadorned with caloric sauces, she served the governors – who are in Washington for their annual meeting – a feast that included adipose-marbled steak, vegetables slathered with dairy enhancements, and dessert.

The White House has proposed mandating meals for elementary school kids that include none of these items, or anything like them. Here, for example, is the Wednesday lunch from a proposal on the White House website.

Chef’s salad: (1 cup romaine, .5 oz low-fat mozzarella, 1.5 oz grilled chicken) with whole wheat bread
Soft pretzel (2.5 oz)
Corn, cooked (1/2 cup)
Baby carrots, raw (1/4 cup)
Skim chocolate milk (8 oz)
Low fat ranch dressing (1.5 oz)
Low fat italian dressing (1.5 oz)

Here’s what the governors got:

Garden salad
Bread and butter
Ribeye steak 12 oz
Creamed spinach
Crab mac and cheese
Pear tart with ice cream
White wine

Based on conservative estimates of caloric totals for each of the items that found their way to the governors’ plates, and assuming consumption of a single glass of wine from the bottles that were placed on the tables, the total intake amounted to about 2,250 calories.

The recommended intake for an adult male during AN ENTIRE DAY is about 2,500 calories. For women, it’s about 2,000 calories.

I hope the White House included a note on its invitation to the governors to fast until dinner.

  1. If we didn’t have a dictator-in-chief as the FLOTUS (and POTUS too), this we wouldn’t mind them gorging on 2000 cal’s but since this administration lives by “do as I say, not as I do” it is a big deal–STOP TELLING US HOW TO LIVE OUR LIVES!!!

  2. Why on earth would you serve “white wine” with ribeye steaks? Good grief. And Mac & Cheese, crab or no crab – yuk! It is obvious the current chef has about as much class as the Obama’s – NONE!

  4. Perhaps she served up a lot of fat because there are more Republican governors now and she considers them her enemy, just like her husband does. Now Obama launches ‘African Americans for Obama’. If this isn’t divisive, nothing is. Pathetic people in our White House.

  5. I think a 12 oz rib eye and I am sure it was prime aged, is over the daily amount of meat one should have.Shame on her, She must have been dinning with them. Also, was it fresh cracked crab with the mac or was it out of the can? We just had turkey with low fat Swiss, tomato and lettuce on wheat bread and fat free cream of cheese soup.made with fat free half and half. I hope that meets the queens approval.

  6. Do you believe that Barrack Hussein Obama was married to his wife, had his two daughters baptized by “Rev” Wright, sat in his “church” for twenty years, and called him his mentor, before he threw him under the bus, and did not agree with this hate speech.

    I also wonder if he was in the mob that was cheering Wright as he asks God to damn the United States and the white people therein.

    We are on the verge of losing the greatest Republic in the history of the world. This election is going to be a choice between Communism and Freedom. PLEASE get out and vote regardless of whom the GOP nominee is. Right now it looks like Obama is going to win, we will have a 20 trillion dollar national debt by 2020, and we can say good by to our freedom. Turnout is the only thing that is going to prevent this from becoming a bankrupt Communist State within the next five years, as Ann Coulter said, Jeffery Dahmer would be better than what we have. This is going to be the most important election in the history of the United States, and possibly the last. It is going to be so close, that turnout will determine if we remain free, or become a Communist state.

    Radical anarchists and Communists such as David Axelrod, William Ayers, Saul Lewinsky, “Rev” Wright and other ne’er-do-well’s, have been grooming Obama to destroy this country for 20 years. Is that what you want? If not, PLEASE email this to every one you know, and hope it goes viral.

    The creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy,
    Its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.” Winston Churchill

  7. The STUPID MIND CONTROLLED LIBERAL SCUM posing as “teachers” are ALREADY CONFISCATING children’s LUNCHES because of Madam Pompadour here!

  8. let them eat cake,, for the rest of us, the people who can’t stand democraps,, let them eat S%$$%#%%.. that’s how the government thinks of us, as they suck on the government teats…. live in gov housing, steal the taxpayers blind….. hypocrites on every issue…

    and the scum who put these %##@$$@#$$ into office…. thanx for ruining our country with these socialist commie pigs..

    signed, a disabled vet dying from disease from chemicals on active duty…. and the VA fights me with denials while I wiat for many years appeals as I die.. choke on your gourment food..

  9. If I were Jan Brewer or Bobby JIndal I wouldn’t go eat there without a food taster:-). Now Christie is a whole different story love to see him go up and give MO a big ole bear hug how good would that pic be?:-)

  10. Crab Mac & Cheese? Hoo-ray! Gotta try that … Plenty of recipes on the internet, but they all are sooooo competitively upscale. I’m thinking a box of Kraft, add crab, garnish with shakey-cheese. Serve with beer.

    1. Hey-as long as she is dictating what my children eat and flying all across the country preaching to everyone what they need to eat on my tax dollars then, “YES”, this is a story!!

  11. Whar Ms Obama says or does is irrelavent. Her husband is a lame duck. She is coming to the end of opulent vacations paid for by my tax money.
    The free ride is over soon.

  12. Liberals don’t practice what they preach. Never had never will. From Roise decrying guns yet having an armed bodyguard to Babs Streisand telling the little people to hang their clothes out to dry while having her clothes dry via electricity to algore’s energy eating monster of a home and private jets for all. With the Libs it’s always do as I say not as I do.

  13. I didn’t have any problem keeping my weight down when I was a smoker either. Maybe the the prez should lead a more healthy lifestyle as an example instead of running his old lady out there to tell everyone what they need to do.

    1. Is Barack Hussein still toking on the cancer sticks? I’ve wondered why the mediods haven’t lavished praise on him for quitting. Chris Matthews would be all atingle, not that I watch him. Stephen Kruiser on PJTV keeps me up to date on the antics of the TV libs.

  14. What no FAT CAKES????? This woman is the biggest hypocrite this side of her old man. Take your huge a$$ MooMoo and leave us the he11 alone. Unreal someone as out of shape as you are telling Americans what to eat. Name ONE, JUST ONE kid that MooMoo has inspired to lose weight. You know there aren’t any because she would be using them as a prop for her million dollar campaign!!!!!!!!!

  15. Well as I read these post they go from a crappy dinner menu to women’s
    reproductive rights so I guess Obama has hit critical mass in his plan to
    change us into his image. If we can see a dinner menu as a part of a plan
    we are one up on him no longer ignoring the little things. You see add all
    those little things up one at a time and bingo Utopia. Sorry Barry not this
    group and not my America!

  16. Well, What do think? This moocher is just like any other dictator. Do as I say not as I do. Also not an elected official, just like most dictators.

  17. Does any of this remind anyone of the French Revolution, when Queen Marie Antoinette told the people “LET THEM EAT CAKE”?
    We have a country going down the tubes and these Washington Politicians are living it up like there will be no tomorrow. Something is very wrong here, but not one of these Washington self appointed “ELITES” are willing to take any responsibility. Why isn’t anyone in the LAMESTREAM MEDIA raising hell? Oh I forgot, they are part of the problem

    1. Good comment except Marie did not say this. Marie was only eleven years old when Rousseau wrote this carnard. Not even a queen yet!

  18. Truly, the “Sandbox Kids” of the 21st Century. ‘Do as I say not as I do.” I’ve never seen such a blatant bunch of two-faced people as you see in this administration, it really makes Nixon look like an amateur.

  20. See – what you don’t understand is that her rules apply to us common folk. She and the Governors are part of the ruling class and therefore live under a different set of rules.

    She looks down on us and I think it has become a joke to her that she can serve whatever she wants in the White House while her nazi-like goons raid the lunches of small school children.

    Yet surprising some people in this country beg to live under a sytem where they don’t have to engage their brain if the government tells them what to do. Why else would they vote for this modern royalty?

  21. Like all dictators/communists/liberals Moochelle Obummer wants to control our lives and make sure we eat twigs and tofu but for her and her guests? Steak with all the trimmings.

    1. You are all being a little dramatic. Comparing what Michelle is trying to teach children about nutrition to what grown people are eating at a special occasion, is like comparing apples to oranges.

      1. It is not Mooch’s place to teach children about nutrition. The children are the responsibility of their parents, not an overfed bureaucrat.

  23. Normally, if I had a meal like that at a restaurant I’d end up taking a portion of it home for leftovers. The governors, who I imagine are used to eating well, probably didn’t clean their plates.

  24. This is a despicable woman married to a disgrace of a man-child. What is even more disgusting is seeing a group of Governors from both Parties, all of whom are being victimized along with the residents of their states, by this dirt bag of a President and his Marxist agenda, grabbing their ankles to eat with the King and Queen of hypocrisy! That not a single one of them, beside Jan Brewer, refused to go and that not one of them, knowing Moochelle food police are on the prowl, looked at that meal and walked away in disgust pointing out the hypocrisy to her, is a sad commentary on the type of spineless cowards that run for political office! We should be ashamed of what we vote for!

  25. A 12-oz. rib eye?!? C’mon! An appropriate portion amount for meat is 4 oz. That 12 oz. steak could be the entre for three diners! So much hypocrisy.
