The Drudge Report calls out President Obama, “middle-class warrior” over costly dinner at Alan Wong’s in Hawaii, implying he dined on “bacon-wrapped pork loins for $260.”
Conservative blogger Keith Koffler calls out President Obama and his party for dining at Alan Wong’s in Hawaii. The Drudge Report ran with this and linked to the story under the caption: ‘Middle-class warrior’ dines on bacon-wrapped pork — for $260…’ TOf course, neither Keith Koffler nor Matt Drudge were with the president and his party to make the assertion that the meal was about $260 a piece. They just want to slander the president, by any means necessary.
According to the pool report, the Obamas and their friends dined on the five-course “tasting menu” that was tasty to the tune of $75 a person, $105 with wine. Among the highlights were “Sassey Salad” and bacon wrapped pork loin.
I’m going to go out on a pretty firm limb here and say they had wine. That brings the bill for two to $210. Add in Hawaii’s 4 percent sales tax and we’re at $219.40. Let’s assume a 20 percent tip at the very least and the total comes to just over $260.

I have heard of bitching, but this is just ridiculous. First The Drudge Report and Naked DC acted like crabs in a barrel over Michelle Obama’s $2K sundress, then the UK Daily Mail, as if they have no issues to worry about in the United Kingdom, bitched about her $1K skirt. Now this? I guess if he pulled up to McDonald’s or a Church’s Chicken, then we wouldn’t hear peep from the right wing.
