Let them eat cake! You won’t believe the lavish menu & theme of tonight’s state dinner at the White House

French President François Hollande arrived in the United States yesterday – sans any girlfriends or mistresses – for a three-day tour of our nation’s capital. On Monday, Presidents Hollande and Obama visited Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello estate, to honor Jefferson, who served as U.S. envoy to France before becoming president. Tonight, President Hollande and other dignitaries will gather at the White House for a lavish state dinner with a menu fit for a king.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“So the President of the United States is having President Hollande from France over [for dinner]. So it’s socialist night at the White House,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Remember the Reagan china? Nancy got blasted for raising money herself, private money to be able to buy china for these state dinners… She was accused of being fancy… the press excoriated, crucified her for it – saying she was Marie Antoinette.”

The gala will take place on the South Lawn of the White House where heated tents will be mounted to shield guests from the frigid temperatures. Guests will takes small trolleys to the tents that will be transformed into a spring-like scene inspired by Monet’s famous Water Lilies complete with quince branches in full bloom, blue agapanthus, and lilies.

“President Obama invited Hollande for a state visit to highlight the long relationship between the two countries. I don’t know about you, but I’m so glad our President is working on highlighting the great relationship between France and America because that’s what we need more of,” Glenn quipped. “Screw the jobs. Let’s do Monet in a tent, so we could talk about a long relationship with the people who gave us a giant statue and then said put it together and find a place for it. But maybe it’s just me.

Mary J. Blige will perform at the event, while attendees dine on an elaborate four-course meal. The first course will feature caviar, harvesting from Illinois streams, Pennsylvania quail eggs, and 12 varieties of potatoes… because it would be silly to only have eleven.

“The salad will be served in a terrarium-like bowl, including herbs from the White House kitchen garden and honey from the White House beehive,” Pat explained. “Let’s not forgot the dry-aged rib eye from a farm in Colorado that will highlight the main course. For desert, of course, you are going to have the Hawaiian malted ganache with Vermont maple syrup and puffs of cotton candy, dusted with orange zest.”

“I would say let them eat cake, but it’s not on the menu,” Glenn joked. “This is incredible.”

To add insult to injury, First Lady Michelle Obama’s official Twitter account tweeted this “adorable” photo of first dogs Bo and Sunny yesterday:

This lavish event comes from a White House that has made “income inequality” its mission statement.

“He can talk about the rich, and the income inequality, and how he’s a worrier for the middle class and little guy, and then act this way with another Marxist-minded person, François Hollande,” Pat said disgusted. “They can live high on the hog like this, instead of having soup and crackers or finger sandwiches and giving the rest of the poor.”

    That is anyone really defending Obamacare. I mean when you are saying hey now that you have no job or not enough hours to pay for your way you can spend more time with your family instead of working for a living and being responsible for your family. Where are we going to spend time with our family under a bridge but at least Daddy has maternity care so if he ever gets pregnant. Get out of my life left wing loons.

    I fondly remember the last bunch whose disdainfull and high and mighty attitude was “let them eat cake” and their untimely and somewhat truncated end.
    However, I do believe that King Barry the Oneth and Queen M’s words are more likely to be “Let them eat s**t”, as it appears that that is exactly what they are feeding the American people by the shovelfull.

    Cuz if the Obama’s ain’t servin’ fried chicken with Kool-Aid, they are acting too uppity. The racism flows drippingly from in this page. It’s easy to make a whole bunch of conservatives upset. Just show them a black family or any non-white christian family for that matter with class doing life better than they are. Cause in the end that is what all the hatred here is about. Not Obamacare. Not liberal policies. Not the spending.

    Oh, rubbish. Put away the race card; nobody is impressed by it. The Obamas have absolutely no class. When will they invite a real American poet or novelist, regardless of color, to do a reading at the White House? When will they bring in a decent chamber music ensemble or world-class opera company or symphony orchestra to perform there? When will they behave in a manner that demonstrates true compassion, the hallmark of class, by visiting wounded soldiers at Walter Reed or actually helping the poor, rather than using them as props for photo-ops? Nobody cares whether they’re black, white, or green with blue polka-dots. They are disagreeable and arrogant, and, considering their parties with Jay-Z and other no-talent jerks, are utterly without any redeeming social value.

  • ReaderinBend

    I’m actually stunned by this comment. I had to go back and read the post again to see where I missed the racist comments, but there is not one word to indicate race here. If you were to read this without knowing who the president is, you wouldn’t even be able to determine his race from this post.

    There is class and there is over-extravagant, indiscriminate, unnecessary spending, which is not classy at all. No matter WHO is in the White House, this display of flagrant disregard for the State of the Union would be appalling.

    And your use of racist words and stereotypes is not only offensive, it certainly lacks any degree of class whatsoever.

  • Stephan Bruno

    When will they invite a real American poet or novelist, regardless of color, to do a reading at the White House? When will they bring in a decent chamber music ensemble or world-class opera company or symphony orchestra to perform there? Could you get any more racist? I guess Maya Angelou and Earth, Wind, and Fire just made your blood boil. You can say you don’t care about race all you want. The proof is in the code words on this page and the policies your support.

  • Guest

    What race would this be referring to, exactly?

  • mspatdev

    I am really surprised that they would let you make the last sentence in your post. I have made postings and I didn’t use that word and they wouldn’t let me make a posting.

  • Stephan Bruno

    Because God is on my side.

  • Guest

    Because anyone on welfare and food stamps is black? Now you are the one doing the profiling. I live in a town that is predominantly white (because of demographics, not racism), and there is a large percentage of the population on assistance and looking for work. We have numerous homeless camps on our outskirts but not for lack of desire to work, but because of layoffs and lack of work for years. I can’t say for sure because to my knowledge there’s never been a race census done, but I would never presume to expect those people to be a certain race just because of their status in society.

  • Lightbringer

    Ooooh CODE WORDS! Gosh, I suppose that Western Civilization is just a raaaacist code phrase for the science that enabled the development of vaccines and antibiotics that have saved the lives of millions of people of all colors. And for the technology that built the infrastructure to get these and many other lifesaving items to everyone, everywhere. And for our literature, art, architecture, and music, which have enriched the lives of people all over the world. As to the “artistes” you cite, the first is obscenely overrated and the second is not even second-rate. They don’t make my blood boil or run cold; they just bore me. As do you, white boy.

  • mspatdev

    How can they have any class when they are from Chicago poor section. They are making a statement to the people of the USA. I have a pen and paper and I will do as I darn well please. It would be nice if they were paying for it. Why are they having tents to have their social? Is there so many people that they can’t have it in the w/h? Shame on them. This is not the time for big spenders and lavish travel. There is to many people out of jobs and they have been hunting and hunting for work. They won’t even let THE TAXPAYERS INTO THEIR OWN HOUSE, BUT they don’t let us in to eat the food. They are very selfish people. Since they have been in the fake office, they have spent far to much money. They have spent about a billion dollars in all of their travels and dinners. WE THE PEOPLE OUGHT TO REVOKE THE PARTIERS IN THE W/H FROM THEIR BIG DINNERS AND FLYING AROUND THE WORLD. If they are paying it themselves, then fine, but they aren’t. WE THE TAXPAYERS ARE PAYING FOR IT and I’m tired of it. They are not the king of this country. My King is God and no one else.

  • Lightbringer

    Agreed, except for your first sentence. Neither of them came from one of Chicago’s poor neighborhoods. Michelle came from a very comfortable middle-class background in Chicago and Barry came from an outrageously privileged background in Hawaii, exclusive private schools and all. But even if they had grown up in the worst part of the worst slum in America, they could still have class; they could still aspire to create and appreciate excellence and beauty, and they could still behave in a compassionate way toward the less fortunate. Class has nothing to do with money, or color, or anything — it has everything to do with character.

  • Lightbringer

    And is the part I wrote about compassion raaaacist, honkey? Or is that a characteristic of only the white race?

    I only have one comment. Those that serve at the table of satan and do his bidding will one day stand before the King of Kings and give an account for their actions.

    Yep, NOTHING says “I’m fighting against ‘income inequality’” like livin’ large; like Louis XVI and Marie (aka Michelle) Antoinette large.

    It’s a good thing “hypocrisy” isn’t in the demoncrat/progressive/communist lexicon; otherwise, they might actually offend themselves as much as they do to us peons.

  • Anonymous

    Stephan, very creative. If the left would stop playing the race card, we could have a conversation of substance vs dividing the country up by race. Sure, we have racism alive in America and pretending it doesn’t exists doesn’t help anyone. On the other hand, by calling everything racism including things that are not, makes light of real racism.

    Even though I was frustrated by the policies of Obama when he was elected, I hoped that at a minimum, having a black president would bring the country together. Instead, at every turn, Obama, you and many others have used their platform to use race to divide the country. If Obama would send the constitution through a paper shredder, you would probably call the outrage to that racism as well. When your argument sucks, you use lame tricks.

    Wow, Dennis, I am really confused by your attack on me. All the comments I made on here were in response to Stephan Bruno’s offensive comments where HE brought up race. Those who are accusing ME of doing that are taking my comments completely out of context. It’s extremely frustrating. I would appreciate it if you would check out my original comment in response to Mr. Bruno’s original comment before you pass judgement.

    1) Reagan didn’t make an issue of “income inequality.” He just made it possible for everyone to have greater opportunity and economic mobility.
    2) Nancy Reagan raised *private money* to purchase White House china so that taxpayers wouldn’t pay for it.
    3) MichObama’s dress cost more than the U.S. poverty line.

  • Anonymous

    Isn’t that nice; deflecting real criticism with race-baiting. Obama’s policies have been the most economically racist in years, almost guaranteeing that black families on food stamps and welfare will stay there. No president has spent more taxpayer money on frills and perks than Obama, especially when the economy has been so bad. No president has insulted entrepreneurs and small businesspeople, especially Americans of African descent, by assuming they can’t achieve on merit – and then making it harder for them to do so. Progressives have always been racist, and this president is no exception.

    Liberals are completely obsessed with race. It is their only way to justify in their minds their hate and hypocrisy. Just imagine having to come to grips with the fact that all of their vitriolic dribble, all of their hate was based on the fact that their beloved leaders were manufacturing this lie for them to keep them enraged and in support of those who promise to punish their perceived enemies. That would be a hard pill to swallow. Benchmark of a good liberal is absolute unadulterated love of self. Anything that may bruise their precious pride, is ignored for self preservation reasons alone.

    To serve cake at a feast like this would be a tremendous step down.

    I’m sure that if we commoners were to be invited to dinner with the King and Queen of America, we would also get the caviar and quail eggs, seeing as we are the ones who paid for them.

    This is the same Francois Hollande who was told by King Barry, “Being President means I can do anything I want.”, On Thomas Jefferson’s lawn, no less. Tom would have chased them both off his lawn with his trusty flintlock, putting some rock salt in their girly butts. The only one at the party who walked like a man was Michelle.
