Obama couldn’t eat at Hill meeting without food ‘taster’

March 14, 2013

WASHINGTON — Following President Obama’s lunch meeting with Senate  Republicans on Capitol Hill, Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins described  the food served and said the president was not able to eat since his “taster”  was not present.

“University of Maine recipe for healthy lobster salad — I pointed that out to  the president in keeping with the first lady’s initiatives and Fox Family Potato  Chips made in Aroostook County where I’m from and wild blueberry pie full of  anti-oxidants, see this was a healthy lunch as well. We did have a little ice  cream on the  pie too, also made in Maine, Gifford’s Ice Cream. So in all seriousness this was  well received,” Collins told reporters on Thursday after the meeting at the  Capitol.

“Unfortunately, you know, the president can’t,” said Collins when asked if  Obama ate at the lunch meeting.

“He looked longingly at it,” Collins continued. “He honestly did look  longingly at it, but apparently he has to have essentially a taster, and I  pointed out to him that we were all tasters for him, that if the food had been  poisoned all of us would have keeled over so, but he did look longingly at it  and he remarked that we have far better food than the Democrats do, and I said  that was because I was hosting.”

According to a 2009 AFP report, the U.S. Secret Service has “always  refused to confirm that US presidents travel with a food ‘taster’, in line with  their policy of discretion on all security related issues.”

  1. The price of being hated by more than half the country. Too funny.
