Yesterday, a fill-in host for Rush Limbaugh told listeners that Limbaugh had traveled to Washington, DC for a “secret meeting” and dropped several hints the meeting would be with Obama. When news broke that Obama was to dine last night with several prominent conservatives, speculation swirled that Limbaugh would be there. Today, however, Limbaugh revealed that he actually traveled to Washington for a private lunch with President Bush at which Bush surprised Limbaugh with a birthday cake:
LIMBAUGH: With 10 minutes left in lunch the door opens and the stewards walk in, three stewards, walk in with a little chocolate birthday cake. … And there’s a little chocolate microphone on the plate with the chocolate birthday cake. And my mouth falls open and I’m just in stunned disbelief.
Limbaugh noted that while he had salmon over rice, french fries, and a salad for lunch, the President had only a PB&J sandwich. Watch it:
Contacted by ThinkProgress, the White House said it would not release any of the photos taken during the lunch.
