First lady Michelle Obama is on a health kick.
So one might expect President Barack Obama to tip-toe through a Krispy Kreme donut shop.
Not in a swing state, 12 days from Election Day.
After promising Ohioans and other swing-state voters sweet Halloween candy in lieu of fruit at the White House this year, the president began Day Two of his 48-hour blitz with donuts.
The president stopped at a Krispy Kreme donut shop in Tampa, the biggest of all swing states, to pick up a few dozen glazed treats.
“Let the president buy these guys donuts,” he said on behalf of two young boys with their father, who make Krispy Kreme their Thursday morning pre-school ritual. “They’re on me for those guys.”
After stepping out with a few dozen, which Obama noted to the cashier were “pre-ordered,” the president then motorcaded over to Fire House 14 to make a special delivery.
He stipulated that the donuts were in fact approved by the first lady.
