Just to clarify: Being photographed at Target or PetSmart is perfectly fine, having their pic taken at a swanky $260 per dinner restaurant is unacceptable.
Via White House Dossier:
President Obama and Michelle had dinner last night at Honolulu’s famed foodie paradise, Alan Wong’s. [...]
I realize the Obamas are wealthy people, and that wealthy people have the right to drop $260 of their disposable income on chow. But if you’re going to invite Associated Press photographers along to capture your trip to Target and stage photo ops at PetSmart and Best Buy, then I’m going to write about your unpublicized excursion to Alan Wong’s.
Diners have been trying to takes pictures of POTUS, only to be chased off by advance staffers.
Since when are people not allowed to take pictures?
