Michelle Obama Bans Barack From Eating Fried Twinkies At The Iowa State Fair

Barack Obama’s most recent visit (hot on the heels, by the way of Paul Ryan’s earlier that day) to the Iowa State Fair wasn’t exactly a presidential cake walk. Not only did the Secret Service totally harsh Barack Obama’s bumper car vibe, but then Michelle shut down a visit to the deep-fried twinkie stand.

For those of you who don’t remember, the Iowa State Fair is the home of that butter sculpture of Obama’s head made by Norma Lyon in honor of the 2008 presidential race. Obama winning the state of Iowa was due, apparently, to the butter lady’s endorsement.

“I’m saving my space for porkchop on a stick,” he said at this year’s fair, after grumbling about Michelle’s (totally unconstitutional, by the way) ban on fried desserts. And later, when he was offered a healthy smoothie: “Smoothie sounds okay but a beer sounds better.”

The FLOTUS let the beer slide, along with a porkchop, which B-rock enjoyed to the chants of “Four more beers!” from onlookers. See what they’re doin’ there? That’s how you make fun presidential puns, Mitt “Obamaloney” Romney.

In fact, when one beer-drinker in the crowd asked if the next round of Budweiser was on The Prez, he checked his wallet for cash and then politely responded, “I’ll tell you what, except for [the guy with the] Romney sign, I’ll buy beers for ten people.”
