Lindsay Lohan Upstaged Everyone At The White House Correspondents’ Dinner With Her Usual Bizarre Antics

Lindsay Lohan White House Correspondents' Dinner Rick Santorum Bianca $100Turns out Lindsay Lohan made it to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner despite missing her flight! You know that the actual movers and shakers present were crossing their fingers that LiLo would be stranded at LAX, but they put on brave faces when she waltzed in to join buddy Greta van Susteren.

Now, a few bizarre stories about the dinner have surfaced on various news outlets, and we can’t help but think that Lindsay had a mission during her stay at the White House: Get positive press. First, this utterly odd anecdote from the New York Post, about Lindsay’s encounter with the bathroom attendant and how her heart grew two sizes when she saw someone actually working:

Lindsay disappeared a few times into the john. For a cigarette. Said she doesn’t usually smoke but is boning up on it to prep for her Elizabeth Taylor role. In the ladies room an elderly Hispanic named Bianca was cleaning the stalls. Tearing up, the front-paged blond actress felon said: “You’re too old to be doing this.”

She reached into her purse, crumpled a $100 bill in her hand and gave it to the attendant, who, backing away, said, “No, no, no.” Lindsay Lohan pushed the money at her with: “You’re too old to be doing this kind of work.” Bianca finally took it.

As one of our writers pointed out, usually when you hear “Lindsay” and “bathroom” in the same sentence, you expect “coke” to follow. Back at the table, Lindsay interacted with, of all people, former presidential hopeful Rick Santorum. Original reports that he had asked to take a photo with her were creepy enough, but his people made sure to set the record straight: He asked to take a photo of Lindsay. Yes, just her. Look how psyched he was:

See, apparently Santorum first did the logical thing in entrusting Lindsay to snap a pic of him and Greta. But then he went into major creepville by asking to take a photo just of Lindsay. It’s not as if he couldn’t find plenty of paparazzi photos of LiLo, looking better (sorry) than she did in that black dress above. But no, he wanted something personal. I’m gonna call bullshit and say that her people set this up: He gets press on sites like this while he regroups for his next campaign attempt, and Lindsay seems vaguely respectable.

So, the drug-addled starlet who was late to her Glee shoot comes out of the White House seeming both politically aware and saintly. Dammit, but as long as she didn’t get near President Obama, we’ll still consider the night a success.

    I think it’s ridiculous that Lindsay Lohan was even invited to go to the White House. The way she acted towards the justice system after she had a DUI and then all the other run ins with the law. There are so many VOLUNTEERS out there for thousands of different charity’s who would have been honored to go and well deserving. I wonder if the President knew she would be there and if so then it’s even sadder that he was ok with that……:(

    1. I predicted many bathroom visits. Anyone could. Come on people!
    2. Bathroom attendents have baskets on the counter for tips. She could have left the money without comment and without condescending to the woman. For the future, Lindsay: You take the towel the attendent offers after washing your hands. Then you say “thank you” and put the money in the basket.
    3. I guess Lindsay leaked this story to the press. “Look how swell I am!” I embarrassed someone by pushing money on them!” What a philanthropist. Now she’s embarrassed this hard working woman world-wide.

    I still don’t understand why so many people hate this girl, includingthe writer of this blurb, obviously. She’s a child star who got over head and dealt with it via substance abuse. It’s not a new story, but everyone is hatinmg on her! All I know is she’s an excellent actor, and she’ll probably do really well, if eveeryoine will just give her a chance. and Rosie O’Donnell, f*** off!

      Lindsay’s freckles got her that first job as a child (that’s casting for ya’). Soon it was discovered that the freckles really couldn’t act, but simply played the same role over and over again. The freckles showed they were shallow and self absorbed and couldn’t learn their lines. Then the freckles started to fade and got on a slow moving train wreck to Sunset Boulevard. The End.
