I didn't watch the Iron Chef "White House Garden" special because I suspected that it would be a political stunt that has no business on a food network show. I was right.
First, it was billed as using vegetables from the White House garden which the celebrity chefs picked with MO's permission. This, in and of itself, is a crock because those vegetables are toxic.

Second, they ended up using stunt vegetables but didn't announce that bothersome fact on the show. They played along with the sham that is the White House garden.
Iron Chef Special Used Ringers, Not Veggies From The White House Garden
I expect lies, smoke and mirrors, and misdirection from the Obamas, but not from the Food Network.
Shame on you.
