[Ed. – Another one for the “never thought I’d ever hear that sentence spoken” column. But what else would you say, after all, at a Pride Month celebration? – Ed.]
Finally, I have to mention a man who’s made life at the White House very sweet. This is one of Michelle and my favorite people — our executive pastry chef Bill Yosses — (laughter) — who’s here tonight with his husband, Charlie. (Applause.) Where’s Bill?
MRS. OBAMA: But he’s leaving.
THE PRESIDENT: He’s — this is the problem. We call Bill the “Crustmaster” because his pies — I don’t know what he does, whether he puts crack in them, or — (laughter) — but —
MRS. OBAMA: No, he doesn’t. (Laughter.) There is no crack in our pies. (Laughter.)
THE PRESIDENT: I’m just saying that when we first came to the White House, I don’t know if some of you remember this — the first year, like, my cholesterol shot up. (Laughter.) And the doctor was like, what happened? You had like this really low cholesterol. You were really healthy. And I thought, it’s the pie. (Laughter.) It’s the pie. So we had to establish like a really firm rule about no pie during the week. (Laughter.)
