At the White House LGBT Pride Month reception on Monday, President Obama generated laughter form the audience when he suggested there was crack in the pies served at the White House.
The president was acknowledging members of his staff, and he turned his attention to “a man who’s made life at the White House very sweet,” the White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses.
The president continued,
“We call Bill the crustmaster, because his pies…I don’t know what he does, what, he puts crack in them, or…”
The First Lady began shaking her head, and said, “No he doesn’t. There is no crack in our pies.”
President Obama continued unfazed. He says that the first year after he arrived at the White House, his cholesterol shot up most likely because he ate the terrific pies. ”We had to establish a really firm rule about ‘no pie during the week’,” he jokes. Is it just us, or was that not quite as funny as his first crack at the pastries?
We are currently boxing up one of Momofuku Milk Bar’s crack pies to send to the president—which, coincidentally, contains zero crack cocaine.
