In another “you’ve got to be kidding me” moment, another couple has come forward as crashers at the White House. A Georgia couple is admitting to accidentally crashing an exclusive breakfast with President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and their staff.
White House officials claim they were just being “hospitable” when they allowed Harvey and Paula Darden from Hogansville, Georgia access to the breakfast the day before Veterans Day when they arrived for a tour.
According to the Associated Press, the couple was ushered into the event two weeks before Tareq and Michaele Salahi infamously crashed the Obamas’ state dinner for the prime minister of India.
White House and Secret Service officials claim that the Dardens went through the appropriate security screenings and were allowed into the breakfast as a courtesy because there were no public tours the day they arrived.
The couple rebuttals that claim, however, and told the AP they thought they were taking a regularly scheduled tour until they were ushered into the East Room, offered a buffet spread and told they’d be meeting the president.
The AP also reports that when they expressed concern to a White House aide, they were told to, quote:
“Go with the flow.”
Ummmmm……does anyone else see a HUGE problem with this?
This NEVER happened when Bush was in office.
