Bill Clinton Is a Tyrant When He Wants Cake

A great day at the White House.

The Clinton presidency was filled with its fair share of tense moments: The World Trade Center bombing. Somalia. Kosovo. Impeachment. None of them compared to the time Bill Clinton really wanted to eat some cake:

Former White House pastry chef Roland Mesnier has fond memories of the Clinton era but says his initial reaction to Bill Clinton was that he was “scary." ... He recalls the episode of a strawberry cake he made one evening. Clinton devoured half of it all by himself, and the next morning he wanted more. “No one could find the cake,” says Mesnier, who had a face-to-face with the distraught commander in chief. “Clinton was pounding on the table and shouting, ‘I want my goddamned cake.’”

The cake was never found, and Clinton? He was never the same.
