Don’t tell Michelle! Obama not eating so well on the road

First Lady Michelle Obama might keep her husband on a healthy diet when he’s in the White House, but it looks like President Obama doesn’t stick to the same rules on the road.

Speaking in Jamestown, North Carolina Tuesday, the president remarked how much he enjoyed a good helping of North Carolina barbecue the day before as well as some “hush puppies” – a deep-fried favorite in the South. Of course, these are some of the same fatty foods Michelle Obama advocates against consuming on a regular basis.

“We stopped for a little North Carolina barbecue and sweet tea along the way. Some hushpuppies. Don’t tell Michelle exactly what was on the menu,” Obama told the laughing crowd.

Looks like the president didn’t eat much better today. According to the pool report, his lunch consisted of a cheeseburger, fries and more sweet tea during a stop at Reid's House Restaurant.

But in the president’s defense, he did spend more than an hour at the gym this morning working off some of those calories.

    Well, he has to blame being stupid on something, who cares if he eats at all on the road? Does he go to the bathroom regular? I guess we want to know that to. He's a joke anyway.
