You really can't. Okay, did this really happen, or did I wander into the Bizarro Universe portion of the internet? As Fred Reed remarked recently of another matter, this African-American administration is more African than American. If this IS real, Michelle Obama is proud of it, because she tweeted about it. I mean, we're told to get all weepy about food stamp cuts, and now this Marie Antoinette-style flaunting of wealth and power. And we're all supposed to think it's cool, I guess. This is from ABC News:
Even The White House Dogs Are Dressed Up For State Dinner
First Lady Michelle Obama tweeted out a photo of the dogs – Sunny in a gold necklace and Bo in jaunty red collar – perched atop upholstered chairs at a table set for 10 on Monday.
“Bone appétit!” @FLOTUS quipped.
The Obamas’ Portuguese water dogs have been fan favorites since they first arrived in the White House. Bo, reportedly named in honor of singer Bo Diddley, and Sunny, named for her bouncy personality, have been spotted romping on the South Lawn, greeting guests at the White House Christmas party, and hanging out with the president in the Oval Office.
And if President Hollande is allergic? No worries. The Obama dogs are hypoallergenic.
