Obama and Biden Jumped the Counter at DC Shake Shack

Earlier today, President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden held a lunch meeting at a Washington, DC location of Shake Shack: According to reports, the two leaders of the free world ate burgers and fries, and as this Instagram video attests, then hopped over the counter to take a photo with cheering employees. (The New York Times' Pete Wells considers the stop-in a gift for Shack impresario Danny Meyer: "Advice for restaurants: if somebody claims they got food poisoning at your place, simply get POTUS & VP to eat there before the week ends.")

As Eater DC notes, it's not the only Obama-endorsed burger in town: The President is known to have ordered a burger at 10 places around town, including Ray's Hell Burger and Five Guys.
