    Those forking Latinos!
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Much like everything else coming out of the administration, I don't buy the polls one little bit.

    From the article itself.

    A Secret Service spokesman confirmed that the agency made the request, but said such requirements are common at large events where the president speaks at about the same time people are dining.

    “The Secret Service coordinates this process with staff and host committee to ensure tables are cleared of material that may be deemed hazardous prior to the arrival of the president,” Special Agent Max Milien told POLITICO. "Any implication that this was unique for this event is completely inaccurate."

    In other words, the announcement at the Latino officials’ event may have been unusual, but the removal of the silverware usually takes place without anyone realizing it’s a security measure.

    Actually it was originally broke I think by part of the Presidents media arm, Politico. So yeah, fail.

    That is simply a lie. Please show where utensils are removed before any other President spoke.
