Finally we’re getting somewhere. They’re still going to lie to us, but at least we’ll get a snack out of the deal.

Wait, no we won’t. It’s just “virtual” cheese:

The White House will host a virtual “Big Block of Cheese Day” later this month in a nod to historical tradition — and the popular West Wing television show.

In the show, White House staffers were required on one day a year to meet with citizens and interest groups who normally might not earn attention from top administration officials. The fictional tradition was a nod to President Andrew Jackson, who in 1837 hosted an open house with a 1,400 pound block of cheese in the White House’s foyer.

But the real White House said Friday that they would be hosting a real version of the event — albeit in cyberspace.

“On Wednesday, January 29th, with a nod to history (and maybe the TV show the West Wing), the Obama Administration is hosting the first-ever virtual “Big Block of Cheese Day,” during which dozens of White House officials will take to social media for a day long ‘open house’ to answers questions from everyday Americans in real-time on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram and via Google+ Hangout,” the White House said in a statement.

At MOTUS pointed out, in addition to Andrew Jackson, the Obama administration will also be following partly in the footsteps of a lesser president named Thomas Jefferson.
