UPDATE: The NY Post has taken the story down ...... Page Six retracts
The source who told us last week about Michelle Obama getting lobster and caviar delivered to her room at the Waldorf-Astoria must have been under the influence of a mind-altering drug. She was not even staying at the Waldorf. We regret the mistake, and our former source is going to regret it, too. Bread and water would be too good for such disinformation.
Can you imagine if Cindy McCain did this? The New York Times would have team of asshats crawling all over the Waldorf kitchen. Chris Matthews would digging through the wet garbage chasing Cindi's empty oysters in the event she didn't eat every oyster. What waste! What disdain for the oyster-less poor.
It's good to be the queen!
This is over at Audacity of Hope (first reported on Page Six, New York Post) . And it won't matter. Nothing matters. It's like the country has been drugged and about to be raped.
According to Michelle Obama, “The truth is, in order to get things like Universal Health Care and a revamped Education System, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of the pie so that someone else can have more.”
Oh, really? Who is the someone who gives up a piece of the pie?
On October, 15,2008, Michelle Obama spent $447.39 on room service (for 2) at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel for an afternoon snack of Lobster Hors D’Oeuvres ($50.00), Whole Steamed Lobsters (100.00), Iranian Osetra Caviar ($150.00), and Bollinger Champagne ($44.00)
See the Michelle Obama wealth redistribution quote below, and the enlarged receipt for the sumptuous snack, signed by Michelle Obama.
Sounds exquisite, doesn’t it, if your culinary tastes run to lobster, caviar and champagne? But this insight into the Obama lifestyle makes us wonder how often Joe ‘the Plumber’ Wurzelbacher of Toledo, Ohio and his family eat lobster with all the trimmings.
How often does the average person eat like this? Or is it only those who make $250,000 or more? Or only the 95% of the population laboring under the illusion that they will get tax breaks under the Obama Wealth Redistribution Plan?
First reportedon Page Six the NY POST (hat tip from Hotel Chatter):
Talking about Love in an Elevator-style (that's "Living it up, while we're going down" if you don't follow Aerosmith), the NY Post is reporting that Michelle Obama ordered up a frenzy of room service afternoon treats while Barack was in a meeting the other day:
While he was at a meeting at the Waldorf-Astoria at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Michelle Obama called room service and ordered lobster hors d'oeuvres, two whole steamed lobsters, Iranian caviar and champagne, a tipster told Page Six.
That's a whole lotta lobster. Also, we knew the Waldorf was swank and stuff but we didn't know they had this kind of fare on the in-room dining menu. Maybe this would please our picky friend?
But Michelle wasn't the only one ordering up a storm. The hotel also hosted the FFANY's Shoes on Sale event where 33,000 pairs of shoes were sold, according to Womens' Wear Daily. The event raised $1 million for breast cancer research.
