The Story of the Huge Chunk of Cheese That Sat in the White House for a Year (foodandwine.com)

In today's episode of "Things I Learned from 'The West Wing'"

Leo: "Andrew Jackson, in the main foyer of the White House, had a big block of cheese."

Josh: "...and a Wheat Thin the size of Lake Tahoe."

What I find extremely disturbing about this story is:

At the top, it says "June 22, 2017", and then;

"the very real Big Block of Cheese Day currently going at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, during which administration higher-ups like Vice President Joe Biden, First Lady Michelle Obama..."

so...uh, who was President in June 2017?

From the links it's pretty clear that the article date got modified at some point, and wasn't actually written at that time, but is from January 2016.
