MSNBC Hides Obama's Dijon Mustard (aka Dijongate)

MSNBC, Obama's favorite network, reported on Obama's trip with Joe Biden to get a burger. Just two wild and crazy guys out for some red meat. Andrea Mitchell (does she have nothing else to do?) reported that Obama ordered a burger and mustard. Sounds like it had that "real guy kind of quality."

Mitchell even noted that Obama left a $5 tip in the tip jar. But she didn't mention one arugula-like fact, and you couldn't hear it on the MSNBC video because Andrea and her correspondent Kelly O'Donnel (they needed two people to cover this story) were talking so much.

NBC's regular news reported Obama's order as follows: ""I'm going to have a basic cheddar cheese burger, medium well, with mustard," Obama said. "Do you have spicy mustard? I'll take that."

Actually, the quote was "you got a spicy mustard or something like that, or a Dijon mustard, something like that" (at 0.55 of the unedited video below without Mitchell's talkover).

Obama ordered his burger with DIJON MUSTARD! Bet he had to seek John Kerry's counsel on that.

UPDATE: An official name: Dijongate. Burger, cheese, bacon and Grey Poupon mustard? That smells like a scandal to me.

UPDATE No. 2: The cover-up is getting deeper. Here is an MSNBC website version of the video in which they cut off the audio just before the mention of Dijon mustard. The Hell Burger theme of the coverage doesn't sound so tough when it's topped off with Grey Poupon:



UPDATE No. 3: There may be addictive behavior involved. Here is one of Obama's favorite lunch recipes:
President Obama's Tuna Salad
Tuna
Grey Poupon mustard
Mayonnaise
Chopped gherkins<
And here is the video proof. The One loves his Grey Poupon:





UPDATE No. 4: He ordered a cheddar cheese burger with Dijon Mustard on his first flight on Air Force One, and the mainstream media didn't cover it. You know the sorry state of journalism when People Magazine is the only hard news coverage:

For President Barack Obama's inaugural flight on Air Force One – taken and filmed when he was still president-elect – he was greeted by a pilot he called "straight out of central casting" and treated to dinner from a select menu.

His meal for the Chicago to Washington, D.C., flight? A medium-well cheeseburger with the fixings, and some fries, of course!

To further personalize his order, Obama requests Dijon mustard (yes, Grey Poupon is fine), lettuce, tomato and some salad or vegetables (in addition to the fries) on the side.
Here is the video proof (listen carefully beginning at 1:05):



UPDATE No. 5: The conspiracy of silence on Obama's allegience to Dijon Mustard goes way back. Remember, it's the cover-up, not the crime:
In the summer of 1997, as he was finishing his first term in the Illinois State Senate, Barack Obama and a young legislative aide made an exploratory tour of downstate districts. When they stopped at a T.G.I. Friday’s, Obama ordered a cheeseburger, and when the waitress brought his food, he asked for Dijon mustard to go with it. “He doesn’t want Dijon,” the aide insisted, waving the waitress away, and shoving a bottle of French’s Obama’s way. The waitress was confused: “We got Dijon if you want it,” she said.
UPDATE No. 6: Dijongate is spreading like ... well, you know. Ed Morrissey is on the case, arguing in favor of mayo (!!??). That's ok as long as he's not for Mao. And Urquhart at The Fray on Slate puts it all in perspective (something lost several updates ago) with some links to the originals:

Now I happen to agree with the President. American mustard is crap, and the spicy stuff is better. But this didn't fit with the narrative of two wild'n'crazy guys going out for a couple of burgers. So they edited the offending condiment out of the report. To give a more flattering soft focus.

Shameless shills, the lot of them. They should be ashamed, except, y'know, they're shameless.

It also gives me the opportunity to see if Artie's still around, by linking to two fine Grey Poupon commercials, starring two of my favourite fictional Prime Ministers unbeknownst to American audiences, of course). Would you have any Grey Poupon? and Forward, Reverse.

UPDATE No. 7: It is interesting to watch how unhinged many nutroots blogs have gone over this post. One thing that seems to have gotten under their skin is the use of the Obama Hope poster theme for Grey Poupon. I'd like to claim I thought up the idea, but actually it was used by a very pro-Obama writer at Vanity Fair (to which I linked in Update No. 5):

UPDATE No. 8: My French is very rusty, but I think this means the French are not happy:

UPDATE No. 9: Mary Ann Akers at The Washington Post's The Sleuth blog has noticed:

Cornell law school professor William Jacobson has been obsessively chronicling what he has dubbed "dijongate" on his blog. "Obama ordered his burger with DIJON MUSTARD! Bet he had to seek John Kerry's counsel on that," writes Jacobson.

He, too, notes the alleged cover-up by the mainstream media, noting that Mitchell "didn't mention one arugula-like fact" - which was that Obama had the gall to ask for Dijon mustard. "You couldn't hear it on the MSNBC video because Andrea and her correspondent Kelly O'Donnel (they needed two people to cover this story) were talking so much," says Jacobson.

Why is this "non-story" taking on such a life of its own? If it is a non-story, why does anyone care?

UPDATE No. 10: All further updates will be through the related post, Thou Shall Not Mock Obama's Mustard

  3. MSM, please continue to bring us these great articles on Obama’s lunches with Joey Pluggs, cool neckties, puppy vetting process, and how he likes to play basketball.

    Don’t worry about his attempts to run socialism in through the back door, petty vindictiveness and attempts to squelch all opposing voices, myriad broken campaign promises, mafia-style threats against bondholders, the political smoke-plume coming out of Illinois with Blago, Rahmbo, and Rezko... or even Obama's dreadful cabinet nominations.

    That’s all just a “distraction” from the "historical moment"… and our intentions SHOULD be suspect if we ask to know all the details... right?

  8. What did the President know about the mustard on that hamburger and when? Doesn't he know the coverup is worse than the offense? Does he want to face the cameras and say, "I. Did. Not. Have. Dijon. On. That. Burger."

    I say it's time for a DNA test on that mustard. Is it plain old yellow mustard or some foreign mustard, the kind of mustard made by foreigners who displace our own good old American mustard workers right out of their jobs onto the streets?

  13. Jesus H. Christ on a Segway. Is this the best a law professor from Cornell can come up with? Snide comments about Obama requesting Dijon mustard?? My father, a tried and true conservative, WWII ball turret gunner on a B-17 for 25 missions over Germany - many of them unescorted - recipient of the Distinguished Flying Cross and the Army Air Corp Medal for valor, likes Dijon mustard. He eats it on every kind of sandwich. Would you like to imply that he's an effete, metrosexual, elitist secret Frenchified wimp?

    I've always wanted to say this: Professor? Go fuck yourself.

    Oh, and before you go, can I have a look in your lunch bag? I want to make sure your wife packed your juice box and cut the crusts off of your PBJ's.

  15. I think Joeyess needs to get a life and get out of the house, and if so, perhaps he'd understand a little sarcasm is a good thing. It certainly seemed to work for the left when W was in office but I guess the One is off limits. We're seeing this with Leno and other comedians who are scared to poke fun at Obama unlike how they have treated every other President. Lighten up a little, and perhaps you'd be happier. And by the way, there is a truth here, and it's about Obama's supporters more than Obama.

  19. Sorry but Dijon mustard is now very mainstream. It's even been butchered for American audiences with "Dijonnaise."

    How's this for arugula....Grilling is my pasttime - that's just a given for an original Southerner, who also spent five years of adulthood living in Texas. The absolutely best hamburger involves using 80-20 beef, olive oil, shallots, salt, and fresh pepper. Grill to medium; place in potato bun; top with favorite toppings -- dijon mustard works well! Eat, consume lots of beer, watch football, and do other things to overcompensate for eating an argula-esque burger (if you feel a little insecure).

  22. Gotta say dijon mustard is not just for the rich anymore. I love the stuff.

    Try this recipe. Take hamburger meat. Mix in some dijon mustard, some spices and so on into the meat. turn it into patties and cook normally.

    It has a pasty texture, i admit, but it has a great tangy taste, too. wonderful.

  28. The funniest thing is the icon at the upper left. But let's be frank: if you were stuck with Republican positions on the merits, you'd think that babbling about the "scandal" of using ordinary supermarket mustard was the funniest thing ever too.

  33. What does it say about how conservatives view ordinary Americans that they think MSNBC edited out the request for Dijon mustard in order to spare Obama the wrath and indignation of ordinary, "real" Americans who'd be outraged to learn that the President isn't a backward, provincial retard who's scared to eat forrin' sounding foods that are actually manufactured by Hellmans in Dubuque?

    Or the screeching harpies who simply do. not. get. it.

    I got the joke immediately. To deconstruct for the humor impaired:

    A "conservative" screed about the president using dijon mustard is funny, even funnier when psed as a screed about the "coverup" by the MSM
    A news report showcasing the POTUS and VPOTUS getting lunch and propping it up as "news" is funny, and also sad.

  44. To the clueless lefties that stopped by, it's called humor.But doesn't humor have to be funny? Seriously, any comedian who tried a line like "Bet he had to seek John Kerry's counsel on that" would result in dead silence from any audience. They'd probably be trying to work out the joke. If the comedian tried to re-tell it (as the professor does here), s/he'd get a right heckling.

    So why don't professional comedians make fun of Obama's Dijon addiction? Let's forget the paranoid fantasy of "The One is off limits"; that's utter nonsense as any newspaper cartoon page would show you. It's that the comedic potential is largely absent.

    Maybe Rowan Atkinson could pull it off. I could see a Mr. Bean sketch about the story - but the main person he'd be poking fun of would be Mr. Bean. In Blackadder mode, Atkinson would probably take the piss out of Obama (for his bank bailout scheme, among other reasons). But he'd also be making mockery of the narrow-minded folk attacking Obama for his condiment choice... people like the good professor here. Why? Because he think it funny that Dijon is seen as a big deal.

  45. "To the clueless lefties that stopped by, it's called humor."

    And therein lies the problem. It's pretty much impossible to tell the difference between conservative "humor" and the "serious" stuff. This is the reason no one sees modern conservatism as anything more than a joke. While you guys are "joking" about mustard (and delicious, spicy mustard, no less), the grown-ups are trying to run the country. Are liberals humorless? Hey, we're not the ones who came up with The Half-Hour News Hour.

  46. If you listen carefully, you can hear Joe Biden order a "root beer medium well."

  49. The part I don't get is why do people on the right call Obama "the Messiah"? It's a little weird to worship the guy that way. People on the left just think he's a good president with positions they agree with. Messiah? I think righties need to get out more. Maybe go to church, mosque, or synagogue or something where they really know from Messiahs.

    Or is this some of that "humor" they keep talking about? I suppose I should laugh to be polite. Ha. Ha. Messiah. Too too funny. Ha.

Also, did you know that Dijon is packaged in a little yellow squeeze bottle just like the regular kind? My dad ate spicy mustard while I was growing up (I'm 47 now) and I'm from Alabama--not exactly a liberal bastion. You also know it can be bought at any Piggly Wiggly, right? What do you and your wife eat for dinner if you go out some place nice? Does she bring along Cheerios in case the menu is too sophisticated?

  81. FINE, somebody's gotta translate the french article:

    "Obama wants dijon mustard on his hamburger"

    We already knew that Barack Obama appreciated French-style socialism alongside dijon mustard. Obama insisted on Air Force One on the famous French mustard.

    Yesterday, on a media-led and hopefully conversational trip, Obama and Biden went for a hamburger at Ray's Hell Burgers. Obama, demanding dijon mustard: "You got a dijon mustard?"

    The leftist network MSNBC even censored the information, as too snobby for their views.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Also, Mr. Jacobson, I question your use of terminology here. "Burger" is short for "hamburger" which as we all know is what the Kaiser would call such a food! Your unwillingness to use the real American term "salisbury steak" shows that you and this "Obama" character are both with the Huns as far as I'm concerned, doggone it!

  83. Dijon mustard tastes better, you ass-clown. Who the fuck cares that it's french? Do you not eat steak or fries because they're french? Do you avert your eyes from the statue of liberty?

    Do you avoid things from the blue states, as well? If so, you might want to get your silly babble off of our internets.

  86. No wonder you are only an Associate Professor with nut-job posts like this.

  88. Dude, this is like the dumbest blog post in the history of the internet, and that includes everything RedState has ever published.

  89. This post is either really funny or really sad depending if the author is being sarcastic of funny. If he is trying to be funny he should totally write for Wonkette.

  90. Once again we see what a phony, fussy, anti-American elitist Barry Hussein is! Dijon?! That sounds like something a billionaire would order - a billionaire like OSAMA BIN LADEN! Can someone find out what Bin Laden likes on his falafel?

  91. Dijon? That's the least of it. Cheddar on his cheese burger? Five buck says Jesus would order his burger with AMERICAN cheese. And, full disclosure: I eat my freedom fries with mayo.

  92. The biggest point made by this post is in the comment section

    Every dissenter to this post proves a very very important point!
    That point is freedom of speech without censorship!

    With every dissent posted and left to stand as stated, the evidence accumulates that conservative values are what will keep the U.S.A. apart from any other country on Earth.

  93. AWESOME job exposing this SCANDAL! Next up: TG-Gate when it's revealed that Obama likes his toilet paper to roll under the bottom instead of over the top like REAL Americans. I'll bet he even periodically drinks imported beers!!!!! Is there no end to this guy's tyrannical gay French socialist tendencies? Thank God someone is spending time on real issues like this instead of, say, working at a soup kitchen. AWESOME!!!!!

  94. Do you know what censorship is, bigeasy? Hint: if it were in effect, this post would not exist.

  95. William,

    Keep up the good work :P

    I should dream that I would ever tweak the dhimmis like you have.

    You know that you are on 'the list' now, right?
    Don't worry, you have lots of good company there.

  96. Why have you not reported on George W Bush's Deviled Egg Recipe which includes DIJON MUSTARD! Are you trying to hide the facts like MSNBC did?

  97. HOW CAN THE MSM BE IGNORING THIS STORY??

    JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THE LIBERAL MEDIA IGNORING WHAT'S IMPORTANT TO AMERICANS, AND NEVER SHOWING OBAMA IN A BAD LIGHT.

  98. First of all, medium well? For chris' sake, no real American would order a burger even one degree past medium rare - and don't get me started on the bun choice.

    For all you nitwits who never sat down in a smoke filled tavern in Milwaukee, Cleveland or Chicago, we Germans enjoy our hamburgers fried, rare/medrare with both raw and grilled onions. The onions must cook in the fat juices of the burger patties (approx. 1-2 hours or 200 burgers whichever comes first). Do not put any sort of vegetable near our plate - lettuce/tomato or the god forsaken pickle as its rancid juice seeps into the crispiness of a freshly made Kaiser roll and ruins the whole thing.

    On the side, we order potato chips not French Fries. If you are over 12, you do not eat French Fries with a burger. And don't even think about putting that corn sweetened tomato paste on my burger. I want a tangy, zingy German/French mustard that causes my scrotum to rise precisely 1/8 inch.

  99. This was actually pretty hilar. Great work! (from a liberal who actually values some good bloggin'). Thanks, professor -- now please go after Hillary's donuts!

  101. Very funny post! Now excuse me while I go eat my broccoli and fetus quiche washed down with stem cell chardonnay. Soon our clever plan will be complete, beginning with restoring the top tax rate to the level it was at under comrade Reagan. Vive La Socialisme!

  102. I am laughing so hard at the righteous indignation of the Obama-lovers who've come to the rescue of their hero. How dare you mock his mustard choice AND insinuate that the MSM gives him preferential treatment, good sir?

    Hyperbole - one of my favorite forms of comedy. The left, they just don't get it.

  103. McCain's donuts have sprinkles.

    What kind of man eats donuts with sprinkles.

  104. After years of idiocy such as Freedom Fries and John Kerry's supposed French looks, not to menion the secret Muslim/born in Kenya BS, jokes like this are hard to separate from actual Republican/Fox News talking points. The American right killed satire by outdoing it.

  105. Ordering Dijon mustard isn't a gaffe -- it's delicious, afterall, and if they've got it, why have French's?

    But Biden ordering "catsup"? It's "ketchup," Joe.

    And what's with Obama's "Hey, how yo' doin' man? This is fer me an' Bi -- we got two we're gonna eat here." Jeez, he assumes the guy at the counter can't appreciate intelligent grammar or diction. "Oh, lunch counter guy. Must Speak Down." You never know these days. Maybe Mr. Lunch Counter Guy is an out of work liberal arts PhD.
