In Wisconsin today, Vice President talked up coconut cream pie–and himself. From the pool report:
VPotus dropped to his knees so as to be at eye level with the foursome. There was a lot of crosstalk as he introduced himself and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, but your pool could hear him reveal his pie choice.
“That’s my favorite, coconut cream,” VPotus said.
VPotus briefly left the ladies for the counter, where he ordered a cup of Wisconsin cheese soup, a piece of the aforementioned coconut cream pie and a slice ofchocolate pie “to go.”
VPotus returned to the table with the four ladies, where a staffer had pushed another table aside it so he and Vilsack, who also ordered pie, could join them.
VPotus announced he would first eat the soup.
“I’m going to eat my soup first,” he said. “My mother would not be happy if I ate my dessert first.”
One of the ladies said she always eats her dessert first. Vilsack asked the press photographers if they would “photoshop out the pie” from in front of him.
