Actress Jane Lynch got a real taste of the White House during a private tour there last week — even getting a chance to try one of the first family’s fave desserts.
The “Glee” star wrote on Twitter last week that she had “the tour of a lifetime” at President Obama’s abode.
“We went into the flower shop and we watched them making the flower arrangements. And we learned so much about the history, that it was [former President] Franklin Pierce who said there should be fresh flowers in the White House every three days, and they kept that tradition up,” Lynch excitedly exclaimed.
The entertainer, an avid Obama supporter, also checked out an “amazing” part of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., saying, “In the White House we not only went into all the wonderful rooms, but they took us into the basement, where we went to the pastry kitchen … And because the Obamas love pie, they let us taste the cherry pies they were making.”
She added, “We got an Obama pie!”
Lynch, 51, boasted she also made a furry friend during her visit: “We met Bo! I mean, we not only met Bo, we played with Bo. Bo hung out with us. Bo walked with us for a while.”
When ITK asked whether a “Glee” cameo could be in the works for the Obamas’ canine, Lynch replied, “I’d love it. He’s such a sweet-natured doggie.”
Lynch could get the chance to work out any presidential-pup guest appearance with Bo’s owner — she’s hosting a fundraising lunch in Chicago with Michelle Obama on Tuesday.
The performer plans on being on her best behavior with the healthy diet-touting first lady, saying with a smile, “I will be watching my P’s and Q’s when I eat, absolutely. I won’t overeat, and I’ll work out before I go.”
Lynch, who in May narrated an Obama campaign video, doesn’t consider the president a shoo-in this November: “I think ultimately he’ll be reelected … It’s going to be close. That’s why people have got to get out and vote.”
