The ultimate hypocrisy: White House releases photos from over-the-top state dinner

Yesterday, Glenn, Pat, and Stu had a little fun running through the extravagant menu and theme of last night’s state dinner to honor French President François Hollande. Inspired by Claude Monet’s Water Lilies, guests were transported to heated tents on the South Lawn via gilded trolleys. Once inside, they feasted on an elaborate four-course meal that included 12 types of potatoes, quail eggs, dry-aged rib eye, and cotton candy dusted with orange zest. This morning, the guys reacted to the opulent photos that have emerged from the soirée.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

To start, Glenn took a look at the gigantic heated tents that were erected on the South Lawn:

“That’s a state dinner and you expect a state different to be nice,” Pat explained. “You expect it to be elegant.”

But this tent takes ‘elegant’ to a whole new level.

“This amazes me. Look at this tent. This is not a tent,” Glenn said exasperatedly. “I’ve been to people’s weddings, who have a billion dollars. Okay? I’ve seen what a billionaire does for their daughter’s wedding. It ain’t that.”

The place setting were just as ornate:

“Go back to that picture. Look at the place setting,” Glenn said. “Look at the embossed napkins with the presidential seal. Look at the menus. Look at the place cards. Look how thick that place card is. That is absolutely highest quality elite… They’re on mirrored tables. They each have, what is it, three glasses in front of each plate.”

First Lady Michelle Obama chose to wear a $12,000 Carolina Herrera ball gown to the event with a voluminous blue skirt and lace overlay.

“Here’s the First Lady. She’s in a very nice simple $12,000 dress. Now, I don’t begrudge anyone. You want to spend $12,000, $100,000, I don’t care how much you spend on your dress. I don’t care,” Glenn said. “But don’t tell me that you’re ‘one of the people’. Don’t tell me that you are a fighter for income inequality and you don’t like the evil rich people… I know how much I make, and I know how much the president makes. I know that if my wife would come home and say, ‘Hey, honey, I just bought this $12,000 dress,’ I would have a coronary.”

Opulent state dinners are nothing knew, but for a White House that prides itself on fighting income inequality and deriding the rich the optics of such an over-the-top display are not good. But, as Glenn explained, the media is nowhere to be found. The pictures from the evening aren’t making news and the menu was widely heralded in the lead up to the event.

“Where are [these photos] on television? I’ve been watching TV all day. They’re not on television. Nobody is even talking about the damn trolleys that you paid for,” Glenn said exasperatedly. “This is a press that is dead.”

    LOOK HOW THICK THAT PLACECARD IS!!!!!

  • August West

    No, we love seeing ALL people enjoy success- we are color blind unlike yourself, who obviously must bring race into every conversation. What we do not enjoy is hypocrisy- and that too, my race-obsessed friend, is color blind as well.

  • B D

    Funny how it’s Beck whining on about this when his audience is mostly lower middle class demographic. Clearly, he’s trying to agitate people against our President in order to increase divisive feelings in the US.

  • B D

    What you don’t understand is that Glenn Beck knows his audience extremely well. He pays a lot of money to understand who his core people are and what makes them tick. When Beck spotlights the luxuries that come with the position of President of the United States, he knows that a segment of his audience is going to feel anger at seeing blacks enjoying the better things in life on their dime and he is exploiting that anger. It’s a simple fact. Beck also allows his audience to draw errant conclusions without coming right out and stating them. He’s a master at that tactic and he’s doing that here.

  • B D

    Oh, it’s thick alright. What an outRAGE! Who does that colored fellow think he is anyway? The President??

  • B D

    Beck riles his audience up with false claims and fictious quotes he attributes to the President. Here’s an example of one that Obama hasn’t said: “Don’t tell me that…you don’t like the evil rich people.” Obama never said rich people are evil. That’s Glenn Beck putting those words in his mouth. And Beck had the brass balls to claim he’s trying to unite the country and bring people together? Not with that kind of rhetoric.

    lol…a lot of that rant is very strong sarcasm. Glenn also paraphrases a lot to dumb things down so everyone can understand his point. plus it wasn’t even a direct quote. did you listen to the show or just read this article? if beck was going to quote the obama he would say “and I quote…” and then state the quote. if beck offends you so much why are you reading his stuff or listening to his shows? if what beck says is false in your mind investigate…like beck says. he says daily to not take what he says as truth, to investigate it yourself. beck isn’t going to report ANYTHING unless it has been investigated and confirmed. and of course he will put his opinion in to the story. its a talk show…thats how these things work

  • B D

    So what? That single isolated, out of context example has nothing to do with Beck’s race baiting tactics. Some “uniter” Beck is.

  • B D

    That’s all bullcrap. Don’t bother trying to apologize for Beck. Beck speaks carefully to convey falsehoods without coming right out and stating them so they can be refuted. He uses language that will allow people to understand what he wants them to. Language like “Obama hates evil rich people.” Hey, everyone who is savvy already knows it. It’s just like when Beck was preaching end times, doom and gloom and making statements like “We’ll all see the ARM OF GOD in our lifetimes” to get people to think they’re living in the Biblical End Times. Wake up and think. Beck is fooling you.

  • B D

    So what? That has nothing to do with what Beck is doing here. That’s a completely separate subject. What do you think? That I’m a leftist Obama supporter because I know when I see a snake oil salesman? I have news for you: this isn’t about politics, it’s about truth.

  • B D

    What a garbled mess. You sound ignorant and unhinged. Use punctuation and proper sentence structure if you want to communicate an idea.

    The good news…( sarc) is that the previous state diner cost $4,000,000 while this one cost ONLY $2,000,000.

    How many Syrian refugies could you cram into that ‘Tent’? The food alone could feed thousands.

    As for that $12,00 dress, I’ve seen better and a heck of a lot cheaper at the Sally Anne Thrift store.For $12,000 ,I could buy half the store and put decent clothes on maybe a thousand people.

    12 types of potatoes !! I never knew that there were that many types.

    These two are a disgrace to all Americans.

    The only thing left out was ” Let them eat cake.”

  • Enola Gay

    Well maybe your truth is not really the truth Maybe it is just your opinion and that is probably faulty like your ability to do your own research and if someone agrees with what Mr Beck says and has less money than Mr. Beck does not mean that what he says is indeed intended to arouse separation of people from one another. You forget that he is an entertainer. His rants are very entertaining. They have you defending the indefensible. lol

    Stephan in the whole commentary there was absolutely ZERO mention of color. You on the other hand went strght to color. If you were to actually read any of the commentary it would be obvious to even a 1st grader, of any color, what the beef is with this president. Let me just spell it out for you… he, the President of theUnited States, speaks over and over leveling the playing field and the rich “paying their fair share” and how he is a fighter for the middle class and the working man but actions speak louder than words. His and his wife’s actions, such as a $12k dress, a waaaayyyy over the top dinner, having Mary J Blige perform at your dinner are not the actions of a person claiming to the be a steward and fighter for the “working man.”

    Take this at face value, but I’m a Conservative who’s not racist…at all. In order for Beck, or anyone who listens to his program to be a racist, that would entail said person saying something negative about Barack Obama solely based on his race. This isn’t the case with Glenn here, or with me in this post. You have the chance to reply to me with a post that contains sophistry or one that claims that anyone who opposes anything someone of a different color does is racist.
    Throw Beck’s opinion aside for a moment, if you would. I’d like you to tell me YOUR opinion of Obama’s grand dinner here. Doesn’t it bother you that this MAN, (Obama is a MAN more than he is simply a black man) is talking about income inequality while hosting dinners like this? What about the fact that he golfs more often than Bush did (look it up)?
    I’d also like you to know that not all Conservatives are white. There are some who are black, and those on your side affectionately refer to them as Uncle Toms on a daily basis. Your side claims tolerance while using the disgusting term “teabaggers” to refer to people who have an opinion which happens to be different from yours.
    How dare you imply that a large percentage of Beck’s listeners are being baited by him to hate Obama simply on the basis of his race. If that’s what you conclude, you know NOTHING. Who freed the slaves? Oh yeah, a Republican, in fact the first one.

    And you think multimillion dollar vacations are acceptable? Can you even get you thick skull around 22 trillion dollars worth the debt? I think it is time you to start to look this from the stand point of this country being a second class country as far as spending money. We export almost nothing. Quick name a product made in the United States that we export in large numbers. Now name one that we are still exporting at the same level as 8 years ago. Here’s a hint it doesn’t exist. We must change our thought process from well it has always been that way. To we can’t afford that anymore. I will bet when you sit down to pay your bills you don’t try to see if you can throw all your money in the trash can and burn it. Yet that is exactly what they did here. Hell it was the president of France and you are going to try to wow him with food. He eats better than this every night of the week. Save your money and take him for a steak. The real anger comes from the fact that this phony liberal, he is a communists through his soul, has the nerve to stand before Congress and tell the American people he is against this very lifestyle. Here is one more nugget of information for you. Do you know what happens to the liberals once they give all their power to the communists? Well do you? They shoot you. 50 million people dead is not a pivotal experience it is a harsh reality that you better get through you head. It is always the same. We have no idea how many china has killed. Open your eyes before it is to late because if it comes down to going into the oven with you or helping you in I won’t have much of a delimia there.

    If you’re talking about George Obama, your position is one of either ignorance, or pure sophistry. George, unlike the legion of American low-info Eaters, told brother Barry that he didn’t want his help. That means that using this issue as a club makes you appear a foolish, self-righteous person of the same caliber as those progressives you so often mock/insult/call names when they spin facts into fiction.

    Let’s call you who you are, shall we, Sam Fisher?

    It’s easy to call names and take wannabe-champion positions, but you have gained a reputation here as a multi-account poser who is more interested in calling names and recycling imbecile one-liners, as if you were a genuine Hollywood pretender.

    Stick to the positive sentiments, act like you’ve grown up a couple of years, and come back here when you can interact like an adult. Being a dick to the Other Side does not help anything, and more than anything it makes you look like a childish halfwit, and, sadly, your grammar completes the portrait.

    I am disgusted to know that my position is made harder to dignify because you speak to its veracity in such an undignified, juvenile manner.

    Finally, stop posting your many other multi accounts with the anti-white rhetoric about “codes for anti-white” policies. Making people angry is not anything to be proud of, IF indeed you are the person you’ve been trying to convince yourself you want to be, and that bullshit CAN only ever make people angry, or drive them away from legit issues.

    Please don’t give me further reason to take the side of persons we both vehemently disagree with. If you can’t say something nice, SHUT UP.

    Well Bruno; There go your Brains !! Be sure you wipe after blowing them out your butt.

  • Mike Nelson

    He’s pretty clearly winning the name-calling & propaganda game with Sam Fisher/Revan, and failing to recognize who is winning, or at least why one is losing, is not a social advantage.

    So, yeah, I guess I’m the one who is REALLY that STUPID.

    But, I’ll give you an up for being willing to call me out :)

    Read the post. Beck says he doesn’t have a complaint about the costs. But the hypocrisy, Obama is talking about income equality, Hate the Rich, pay your fair share, then he spends THIS! Why the outdoor tents, in February? Why not indoors? That right there saves $100,000.

    People starve and go without clothes- while the regime spends spends and spends
    They travel all the time never going to their Chicago home
    The abuse financially to America is criminal!

    Tired of these posers, we need real americans as presidents.
    The embarrasement of this regime is too nerous to mention- but europe posts it daily!

    Stuff it Bruno, Dear Leader was black when the country voted for him the first time too. Dear Leader was black while he rose from childhood to become President. Just like Oprah rose from her childhood to become a Billionaire. Quit making excuses for your race.

    Good grief, how small you are. Ya know, there are people who honestly need help, and this nation is willing to give it. But not to those who have sold their soul and HONOR for food stamps and a chance to lay back and let others pay their way. Black or white, makes not difference to me. I doubt the soul has a color, and neither does honor.

    I think the more interesting question is why you don’t object to the Obama’s doing the same sort of things you came out in droves to protest when it was the Bush’s doing it. I don’t live vicariously through my political leaders so I don’t want any of them living this lavishly. I want them to live simply and do their jobs.

    Ah. Let the peasants eat cake. Every time I see this garbage I think of the theme song from the Jefferson’s. “Movin’ On Up (to the East Side).” The word “uppity” can’t do enough to describe how this guy whose only experience was a community organizer in Chi-town has moved up to the White House and is spending our taxpayer money like it is his personal fortune. If GW did this the proverbial poop would hit the fan in the press. Why is it that all Democrats think of our taxes as their personal fortunes to piss away as they please? At least the Reagan’s and the Bush’s 41 and 43 were millionaires prior to reaching the White House, and not after fleecing the country like the Clintons and the Obama’s.

    If you ate one of each you would no longer be hungry.Unless of course you are a Democrat and the Taxpayer is footing the bill.

    I wonder if the WH has a ‘Vomitorium’ like the Romans used to have?

    Oh and BTW, I love potatoes but 3 is usually my limit and all from the same bag…:-)

    And so my fellow Americans, shall we simply remove the presidential term limits and make him the King of America and Her the Queen? I can see the Liberals and hear Liberals calling for just that. I find it disheartening that both Him and Her didn’t choke on their elitism and their quail eggs. One can certainly see, I hope, the hypocrisy in Obama touting that he is a warrior for the middle class. There soon will be No Middle Class if Obama is the champion as he claims. What a thoroughly disgusting display by the Obama’s and those in D.C. who go along with this charade.

  • Steph Belch

    Nope not fooling me. And I’m not apologizing him. But he does have the freedom (fro right now anyways) to say and talk about whatever he wants. Like I mentioned earlier if it offends or bothers you quit listening to him. Problem solved. You will never agree with him so move on. It’s sorta common since. I don’t like the View or there opinions and politics so I don’t listen to or watch that show. And I investigate or research everything before I make a decision on whether or not I agree or disagree. I just don’t understand getting all mad about someone saying something you don’t like. It’s life. Deal with it and move on. I don’t listen or watch anything that involves obama because I think hes joke and liar. I thought that way before I started listening to Beck. And I’m not a doomsdayer but what is wrong with being prepared? I bet the people in Atlanta wished they had been stocked up on a few things. It’s okay to disagree with people. That’s life. But don’t dwell on it. Move on

    If I were president, the drinks would be Shiner Bock….

    Food would be a good burger (not cheap, as in McDonalds/fast food) but not expensive either. and fries. Or lays potato chips.

    I liked your post here. I don’t post on liberal sites because I don’t need to have a hundred people harassing and hating me. I don’t need that attention. The trolls come here to project their anger. Honestly, I’ve read posts in here after coming home from work late, when I don’t have time to post my own things. Funny how these Beck haters spend more time here than I (and probably you) do. I’ve read 7 of his books. I revere the man to the Nth degree.
    I have one more thing to say to you. The picture you have here of you kissing your baby is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. One, your baby is beautiful, two, the look of love on your face is priceless. You should be on a pro life ad :) Have a good day and God bless you and your family.
