Broccoli is all the rage this afternoon!

And we have this little exchange to thank:

Plenty of people think the president was less than forthright:

But one thing’s for sure: Raw, steamed, hot, or cold — the mockery is delicious.

Yes and yes:



Keep it coming, Twitter! All this giggling is good for our health.

  • Clete Torres

    Broccoli is my favorite too. He directed so many great James Bond films…

  • Jennifer

    The lying is just do ingrained, he can’t help himself…

  • Clayton B

    . . . barack-o-lie . . .

    • gracepmc

      Bad news for school kids. The Michelle Obama Diet for Amerika’s Kinder now includes the newly approved Schumer Greek yogurt AND the Obama favorite” barack-o-lie”.

  • peteee363

    if that is true, why is he always sneaking around at burger joints when moochelle is not around?

    • RblDiver

      Indeed, seeing as how he provides a lifetime supply of whoppers…

      • Adela Wagner

        We don’t eat out any more. But back in the day when Iwould go out, I would order my favorite off the menu depending where we were eating. Have NEVER seen Obama with a big plate of broccoli in front of him, has anyone…ever?…ANYONE? Maybe those were broccoli burgers…

        • peteee363

          you mean like when asked who his fav white sox players were, he couldn’t name a single one?

          • Adela Wagner

            HAHAHAHA YES! Guess he missed a “teachable’ moment…unless he was teaching the kid how to tell a lie (he’s good at that).

    • AmericanMom

      Did he jam the burger and fries down his throat before he professed the love of broccoli?

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      Kinda like BILL(ARY) CLIN-TON, when he went jogging… Jawamax 8<{D}

  • Txgirlinnh

    This guy couldn’t tell the truth to save himself. No person on this planet can truthfully say that broccoli is their favorite food is broccoli…EVER.

    • KayGee

      you ever had broccoli and cheese? Or broccoli quiche? Or broccoli in a casserole? I guess I can’t enjoy broccoli anymore, since obviously it now has a liberal lean to it.

      • conservative2012

        You can eat all the broccoli you want. I don’t think anyone here has anything against broccoli, but no one has ever said that broccoli is they’re favorite food. I personally like broccoli just fine as long as it’s covered in some kind of sauce.

        • TJCrane_NCC1701

          Medium (thick) cheese sauce (works with canned spinach too)or Ranch dressing.

          That said, a good side-dish with a rare Rib Eye or T-Bone and a baked tater smothered in sour cream. Good eats !

          • SpinMeNot

            Canned spinach is not a food. Anything served in a can that doesn’t have the word Chilli or Beer on the label should be avoided.

            C-Rats, they were canned rat … had to be … no other explanation.

          • TJCrane_NCC1701

            Canned spinach is an energy drink. Just ask Popeye the Sailor (and his nephews Peep-eye [NSA], Pup-eye [Obama’s dinner], Poop-eye [our Veep], or Pip-eye [Gladys Knight ???…..that’s RACISSSST !]).

          • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

            Uh…. Remember Popeye? How he encouraged kids to eat their veggies? His preference was Canned Spinach, but there have been instances where he would eat uncooked Leaf spinach.. Just sayin’… Jawamax 8<{D}

          • KayGee

            I’ll settle for canned kraut.

          • TJCrane_NCC1701

            With Thousand Island dressing (who were the 1,000 islands that invented this…..I’d like to thank them all…), Swiss Cheese, rye bread, and corned beef fatty enough to give me a heart attack or stroke.

            I could only die happier if I was having sex while eating a Rueben sammich…

        • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

          Or butter… Jawamax 8<{D}

  • lainer51

    If I had a son, his head would look like broccoli…

  • Michelle

    He just might be telling the truth. It certainly would explain why he’s such a gasbag.

  • Txgirlinnh

    If true though, it could explain that look Michelle always has on her face.

  • ceemack

    Good Lord, was Dana Carvey ever that young?

    He was so much more talented than anybody that’s been on SNL in the last few years…

  • Vitiosum

    I was bored, so checked out a few dinner menus from the white house. No sign of broccoli anywhere to be seen. The president must be so very depressed.

  • mwill

    “I’m President of the United States, and I’m not going to eat any more broccoli!” ..George Herbert Walker Bush

  • KayGee

    Well, obviously broccoli is associated with a communist-martian-kenyan-stalin-hitler now, so I’m going to have to nix it from my household’s exclusively patriotic pallet.

    • Republicanvet

      Do you eat off of pallets? Or buy food by the pallet? Moochie wouldn’t like that.
      Perhaps you meant palate?

      • Clete Torres

        His picky palate prefers pallets of boiled broccoli.

      • KayGee

        no no, I really meant what I said.

    • PennyRobinsonFanClub

      C’mon, we know he was just trying to make sure we knew how different he was from those Bushes.

      But yeah — I’ll have some nice potatoe salad and burgers LONG before allowing any brie in my kitchen.

  • yourmamatoo

    Yeah right.
    Is that why , every every time we saw him out galavanting around, he was eating burgers , hot dogs,fries, pizza, and fried chicken with all the fixings?
    What a fricking liar, and hypocrite.

    • William Kent Jenkins

      You forgot the watermelon… oops did I say that out loud

      • Jay Stevens


      • yourmamatoo


    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      And I’ll bet Mooch-Chelle had a fit about his eating habits… WHOA! Jawamax 8<{D}

      • yourmamatoo

        I doubt it.
        They are both hypocrites.

  • Markward


  • Lotte Lenya

    Pandering to a kid about broccoli. God help us.

  • capisce

    whatever his favorite food may be, we all know he’ll never develop
    a taste for humble pie.

    • SpinMeNot


  • muckraker

    If I had a favorie food it would look just like broccoli.

  • ObamaFail

    This is way off topic, but did you know America has been bumped out of the top spot for “World’s Fattest Country?” It’s true. Mexico is now the fattest nation on Earth. I’m not making this up.

  • stillinthe60s

    BO is Mr Choom. No way favorite food wouldn’t be Twinkies.

  • NixTyranny

    “If you like your broccoli, you will be able to keep your broccoli. Period.”

  • Junie3

    I like broc, but I can’t stand barack.

  • BadGirloftheNorth

    Broccoli (slang) Subliminal message: Broccoli = Barrack I Lie. And THAT, Gentle Readers, would be his favorite…..

  • 1azuce

    Bozo only eats broccoli with teriyaki skeet.

    • Jay Stevens

      Is that the famed Flightless Northern Skeet?

  • NixTyranny

    Barack Obama, November 21, 2007: “Well, I truly
    believe that the day I’m inaugurated, not only does the country look at broccoli differently but the world looks at broccoli differently.”

  • NixTyranny

    From King Barack’s speech at Dem Convention:
    “Broccoli rises above the New York skyline, al- Qaeda
    is on the path to defeat and Osama bin Laden is dead.” (Cheers, applause.)

  • Jim Denney

    Recipe for Shush Kabob; alternating strips of dog meat, government cheese, and broccoli but NO leeks!

  • stuckinIL4now

    HDub hated broccoli–or maybe he was foretelling the future and that was code for Barack-oli. As for Obamuh–if broccoli is his fave food then he must’ve choomed it.

  • Marjorie

    I’ve never smoked broccoli.

    • lainer51

      I have but I didn’t inhale.

      • Marjorie


    • Jay Stevens

      It is pretty hard to put it in the pipe.

      • Marjorie

        I understand if you dry it in the microwave it makes it easier to pack.

    • PennyRobinsonFanClub

      I did once – but I didn’t inhale.
      Oops, never mind, been done, Didn’t see this was allaa day old.

  • chetnapier

    Deep fried in batter with cheese so his favorite food would still get Michelle Antoinette pissed off.

  • Jay Stevens

    I like broccoli; especially steamed with a little butter, raw in a salad, or raw with a bit of ranch dressing as a munchie. But I wouldn’t call it my favorite.

  • 3seven77

    What happened to peas? Didn’t Barackoli scold us all about eating our peas?

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      Brussels Sprouts, Boiled Cabbage, and Eggplant…Blend that into a shake and drink it, Obama! Jawamax 8<{D}

  • Right Wired

    Broccoli is what my food eats.
