Cheeseburger and Fries… A Day In the Life of the Prez

President Barack Obama took a lunchtime excursion to Five Guys  Burgers today in the midst of NBC News and Brian Williams filming a “day-in-the-life” documentary about the Obama White House. Needless to say the  outing has been catching lot’s of buzz in the news and the sphere.

That day in the life included a motorcade departure a 12:42 p.m., with one NBC camera crew catching the walk to the car and another on the other side of the limo. The burger-cade arrived at Five Guys at 12:51 p.m., a few blocks from Nationals Stadium.

Obama, in shirtsleeves, approached the counter, scanned the posted menu and started ordering. Aides Reggie Love and Marvin Nicholson slipped him various requests. At one point, Obama brought up NBC’s Williams, who ordered a cheeseburger with ketchup and fries. Obama peeled out at least four $20 bills.

C-Span caught the trip to Five Guys on video — watch it here:

I seem to recall Bill Clinton used to have a penchant for McDonald’s burgers, if I am not mistaken. The Swamp reports that the NBC documentary will be airing next week.
