President Barack Obama snuck a crack joke into his remarks Monday at a White House event observing LGBT Pride Month.
Obama took a moment to thank outgoing White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses, who he called the “crust master.”
“His pies, I don’t know what he does, if he puts crack in them–” the President said.
“No he doesn’t,” First Lady Michelle Obama laughed. “There is no crack in our pies.”
In Yosses’ absence we suggest the President consider ordering a real “crack pie” from Momofuku Milk Bar, although the first lady would likely disapprove.
