Yes, President Obama would like fries with that. The commander-in-chief made another cheeseburger run today, shelling out almost $80 on lunch for an entourage that included NBC’s Brian Williams, the Chicago Tribune reports. The president took aides and the Nightly News anchor, who’s trailing him for a “day-in-the-life” documentary, for take-out to a burger joint in southeast Washington.
“I need one cheeseburger and one fries for me. Jalapeño, tomato, mustard,” the president said. “That's it for me. Plus lettuce on mine too.” Obama also chatted with several fellow patrons, one of whom was from Dublin. “Outstanding,” he told her. “I’ve got to visit Ireland.” The entire outing lasted about a half-hour.
