Michelle Obama’s hand in White House pastry chef resignation

The White House pastry chef, who’s been in-kitchen since the George W. Bush administration, is resigning – and it may be all Michelle Obama’s fault.

According to Fox News, pastry chef Bill Yosses is stepping down to start his own healthy-cooking venture in New York City.

“He’d been experimenting with his own recipes after the First Lady requested that dishes be lower in fat and sugar and served in smaller portions,” Fox News reported. “So he began replacing butter with fruit purée and honey and agave in place of sugar, which got him thinking about the relationship between food and health.

“Now Yosses, who was hired in 2007 by Laura Bush to make cookie plates and sugar sculptures, will be moving to New York to work on a new project focusing on food literacy.”

KTTH host Rush Limbaugh wondered if Michelle Obama’s influence might be at play in a larger way – maybe she forced Yosses to stop using butter, sugar, and cream, and so he quit in protest.

“This is an outrage. He was forced out and he’s doing it because he needs to defend cream, butter, sugar, and eggs,” Limbaugh said. “Here’s the point of this. They’re going to eat what Michelle tells them to eat. That’s the point. Your kids are being forced to eat what Michelle’s is telling them to eat.

“It’s fine and dandy that Michelle Obama doesn’t want to eat cream, butter, sugar, and eggs. But if she doesn’t, no one else is going to because she knows better than anyone else.”
