He already gave Five Guys the Presidential seal of approval, and now President Barack Obama has moved across the aisle -- or, rather, across the fast-food spectrum -- by hitting up Chipotle. On his way to the White House Summit on Working Families on Monday, the President stopped by a DC Park location for a bite. After making perhaps the biggest gaffe of his career -- he called the place "Chipotle's" -- Obama attempted to rebound by ordering a chicken burrito bowl with white rice, pico de gallo, medium-spicy salsa, lettuce, cheese, and guacamole. Is the lack of tortilla a sign of the President's intent to go against the House? Is the presence of green guacamole a sign of the President's environmental policies? We'll let the pundits figure that out while we score a Quesarito.
