Kim Kardashian Can't Go A Day Without Kanye West: Jets Right Back To His Arms Just Hours After Dining With The President



Together again: Kim Kardashian was back with Kanye West today as they held hands on a lunch date to Serafina in NYC
She had the pleasure of dining with the President at one of the most prestigious events of the year last night, but Kim Kardashian may have had other things on her mind at the White House Correspondents' Dinner.

It seemed the reality television star could hardly wait to get back to her beau after making an appearance at the event with her mother and manager Kris Jenner.

Following a dramatic arrival in an emerald old-Hollywood style dress, the 31-year-old couldn’t wait to leave Washington D.C this morning to spend more time with her latest boyfriend Kanye West.

Dressed to impress: She wore a frock which drew attention to her behind while he struggled to keep his covered in low-slung jeans
Kardashian was back to her old ways as far as her dress sense is concerned, today she was seen going for a lunch date with the rapper at pizza restaurant Serafina in New York City.

The star looked more dressed for night out than a lazy Sunday afternoon as she donned a one-shouldered black mini dress as she walked through the Big Apple holding hands with her man.

Kim teamed her frock – which revealed plenty of flesh in the back as the material rose up towards her derriere – with chunky gold bangles and thinly heeled shoes.


Different fashion memos: The couple held hands as they traipsed the street boasting completely different styles

What a love: Barack Obama and wife lean in for a kiss in Georgia, just before his speech
Barack Obama had some advice for the single men of America today - seek out a woman with good genes, and then marry her.

The President set an example by sharing a kiss with his beautiful wife Michelle, minutes before praising her to the cheering and laughing crowd. 

The First Lady, introducing her husband, told the Third Infantry Division Headquarters that the president had tirelessly fought for them.


Like a pair of teenagers: The President and his wife are obviously deeply in love
'And, ladies, I think he's kinda cute,' she added to approving hurrahs from women in the crowd.
'She is a tough act to follow,' Obama said moments later. 
'For the gentlemen out there who are not yet married, let me just explain to you: Your goal is to improve your gene pool by marrying somebody who is superior to you.' The crowd laughed.
The President had just signed an executive order to help protect military families and veterans from aggressive recruiting by higher education institutions, targeted especially at profit colleges seeking their military benefits without any intention of providing meaningful education.
Shared moment: The President and his wife allow the crowd to see inside their relationship
.

Support act: Michelle introduced her husband with great passion then added that he's 'kinda cute'
'I’ve heard the stories,' the president said. 'They harass you into making a quick decision with all those calls and e-mails.  


'And if they can’t get you online, they show up on post. 
'One of the worst examples of this is a college recruiter who had the nerve to visit a barracks at Camp Lejeune and enroll Marines with brain injuries - just for the money.


Warm reception: Both Barack and Michelle got a rapturous reception from troops, veterans and military families at the Third Infantry Division Headquarters
