According to White House pool reports, Obama was joined by Ambassador Caroline Kennedy and National Security Adviser Susan Rice at the meal.

Sticky situation. Hope he was able to roll with it.

Rapmaster2000: ELITIST!  Here in Real America we call sushi "bait" and every time someone mentions sushi I always mention how I call sushi "bait".

We are very witty and original in Real America.

Hold the phone, Kemosabe! That's why I invented Gringo Sushi with Sumatran blackened beef, wrapped in Missouri Wonder Bread, deep fried and slathered in Ranchito Dressin'. It's off the hook bananas, this train doesn't stop until Flavortown.

You can see Jiro himself emerging from the restaurant right at the very end of the clip. Even though it's blurry, you can tell it's him by how short he is compared to his son.

Ok, I love sushi, but that does not look like $400 worth of food.

This is why people have a tough time relating to Mister President, because how many people can afford to go out and eat a $400 dinner, really? If I'm not mistakening the Japanese culture cowardly use nets and not hooks.

These guys know the proper use of sushi bait.

Very odd


When he set the precedent of being the first President in U.S. history to travel internationally on the taxpayer's dime, he opened himself up to this criticism.

Lt. Cheese Weasel: You should be outraged. You and I paid for the meal and we didn't get a bite.


Absolutely.  The shrimp-in-chief should have had takos instead of taking our ficsal monies and wasting it on overpriced asian food.  I'm pretty sure he's clinikally insane.  This little photo op is politically yellow, tailing onto the popularity of one of the world's most renown documentaries for some hipster cred.  What's wrong with eating some good-old american deep fried toroids? (donuts, for you libtards). I'm sure the Roe-v-Wade crowd is eating this up.  It's a real poke in the eye for REAL Americans to see this foreign folderol.  It just makes me feel crabby.
