No Treats for Air Force One

Halloween alert! Of all days, there were no M&Ms on Air Force One today.

According to the always valuable White House pool report, the president’s plane got under way to New Jersey to survey the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy without the usual empty calories.

“Your pooler notes with some degree of sadness that Air Force One is out of the traditional on-board M&Ms,” the pooler, Reid Epstein of Politico, noted.
