President Barack Obama made an unscheduled visit on Tuesday to the second annual Kids' State Dinner, a healthy lunch children's event hosted by first lady Michelle Obama in the East Room of the White House. The president greeted the 54 kid guests and made a few brief remarks.
"Food can be fun, it can be healthy," Obama said, according to a White House pool report. "You are setting up habits that are going to be great your entire life."
As he left, Obama was asked what his favorite food is. His answer: "Broccoli."
Not surprisingly, Twitter erupted in mock scorn over the commander-in-chief's purported vegetable enthusiasm. Broccoli was soon trending on Twitter, and a full-on faux "Broccoligate" began to boil.
C'mon. Is anyone's favorite food really broccoli? How would you have answered that question?
