White House reporter Mark Knoller put President Obama and Vice President Biden at lunch over in Courthouse at ever popular burger joint Ray’s Hell Burger. I’m guessing that Michael’s got a couple of big & awesome burgers waiting for them, but what do you suppose they take on their burgers?
I’m voting cheddar and bacon for Biden, and maybe guacamole for the President?
So, was it that President Bush never went out in DC at all, or is it that we’re just so obsessed with President Obama that normal lunch habits seem like good news fodder?
Update: Knoller reports, “Obama ordered a swiss mushroom burger with chili and cheese cooked medium. Paid cash.” Damn. He also ordered burgers for a few of the press that were invited along.
Update the Second: NBCWashington wants to post your cell phone video of the Prez wiping burger off his chin.
Update the Third: NBC 4 passed along this video, behind the cut:
As you can see, Mark Knoller’s initial pass-along of the orders was wrong. The VP had Swiss with Jalapenos, and the President had a basic cheddar burger, with cheesy potatoes. Not a bad lunch.
