The Associated Press reported that the bill for breakfast – eggs, toast and bacon – came out to $17.34. Mr. Obama, the non-billionaire of the bunch, picked up the tab and left a generous $10 tip, according to their waitress, Judith Perez. (Photo: Diane Bondareff/Associated Press)

obama and bloomberg meet to discuss policy in a nice little “hey we still eat at normal-people-places” photo-op. the caption says that obama bought bacon, but as you will see below, we do not know who ate said bacon. perhaps they shared the bacon? i also wonder who picked this coffee shop and if they had any awkward footsie moments, as that looks like quite a small table they’re sitting at. (check the embedded video for some funny chit chat between the photogs hovering outside the window).


At the New York Luncheonette on East 50th Street, Mr. Obama ate eggs over easy and wheat toast, while the mayor had scrambled eggs and white toast.

Well, if Obama is a Muslim as suggested, he surely didn’t eat the bacon. And if Bloomberg is a Jew as many say, he didn’t eat the bacon. mmmmmm maybe they were trying to snow us. By the way, Obama looks bored and Bloomberg looks amused.

I just might be able to handle a smart old Jewish guy mentoring a bright young black guy.

If the young one would only defer.
