This story, originally published in the “Page Six” section of the New York Post, has been retracted by the newspaper. Here is their statement:

THE source who told us last week about Michelle Obama getting lobster and caviar delivered to her room at the Waldorf-Astoria must have been under the influence of a mind-altering drug. She was not even staying at the Waldorf. We regret the mistake, and our former source is going to regret it, too. Bread and water would be too good for such disinformation.
I regret passing along false information to my readers. Given the truths of Barack Obama’s associations with ACORN, Bill Ayers, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, I would suggest that we focus our attention there.
