Here are some of the headlines and reactions on last night’s White House state dinner for France. . .
First up, who knew the collection of Hollywood stars, politicians, and other power players were “royalty”:

Oh, and the dress!

And the White House producer for NBC News, Shawna Thomas, was quite smitten by Michelle Obama’s dress as well:
HOLY CRAP LOOK AT THE FIRST LADY’S DRESS. #BOWDOWN

“#Bowdown”? It’s Michelle Obama, not Michelle Antoinette last time I checked.
The New York Times called it a “lavish event” but unfortunately “the evening still seemed one spouse short.”
And what did the royalty eat at the lavish event? 2500 calories worth, that’s what. I seem to recall the First Lady advocating for healthier eating choices, no?
As they say, it’s good to be king.
