There were replicas of Monarch butterflies dangling from the ceiling. The pop singer Beyonce provided entertainment. A private chef was flown in from Chicago to compliment the 200 person White House staff. Together, they served Hawaiian opah fish and Oregon Wagyu beef on "boldly striped linens made in three hues of blue, intended to resemble ripples of water."

All of this was paid for via State Department funds — which, of course, is paid for by our tax dollars. It seems that our country's 10% unemployment was briefly forgotten so the Obamas could make up for the sins of Arizona against Hispanic people.
