President Obama Doubles Tip At New York DeliPublished by on Monday, August 26, 2013 at 3:30 pm.
When it comes to government spending President Barack Obama puts his money where his mouth is and provides extra for this nation one citizen at a time. Last Thursday, the POTUS checked in for lunch at a New York deli and doubled his waiter’s tip.
While at a Rochester eatery called Magnolia’s, Obama noshed on a grilled cheese sandwich and cream of tomato soup and even footed the lunch bill for his devoted secret service. According to TMZ, who obtained a copy of the check, the President’s total bill for nine people was $89.84. The restaurant added the 20% tip for a large party — $16.64— but the ever-gracious Obama slapped another $30 dollars onto the gratuity.
For the fiscally challenged out there, that amounts to a 52% tip. That’s a budget surplus anybody would be happy about!
