The Pres and First Lady marked their presidency’s first Cinco de Mayo. Not with much pizzaz or on the right day, but marked it nonetheless.
In pre-celebration, FLOTUS visited the Latin American Montessori Bilingual Public Charter School in DC on May 4. She watched the children perform, said a few words, and took questions from the students and teachers. Michelle was asked if she’s ever tried Mexican food. (Uh, who HASN’T?) Her response: “Oh, let me tell you, Mexican food is my favorite food in the whole wide world. I think I’m on record. Ooh, what do I love? I love — Oh, I love tortillas. I love tamales. I love beans and rice. I love mole. I love all the mole sauces, I love beef and lamb and quesadillas. I mean, you name it. The question is, what don’t I like? I love it all.” ‘Nuf said.
Later in the day, Obama invited guests to the White House to celebrate. In his opening, the typically rico-suave prez actually stumbled over his words. He’s human!!!!! In his remarks, Obama said “Welcome to Cinco de Cuatro.” This will likely be the only slip-up Obama endures for his time as president.
