The leader of the free world President Barack Obama has done something only great men do ... he tipped his server ON TOP of already added gratuity. He DOUBLE TIPPED!

Obama stopped for lunch in Rochester, NY Thursday at a little deli called Magnolia's. It was widely reported that the Prez ate a grilled cheese and some cream of tomato soup. Big stuff.

But what you didn't know ... Obama not only bought lunch for his secret service men (the ones who checked the place for WMD's before hand) ... he also double tipped his waiter, like a champ.

Obama's Tip

  • Awesome
  • Fiscally Irresponsible
TMZ obtained a copy of the receipt ... his total bill for 9 people was $89.84. The restaurant added a 20% tip for the large party -- $16.64 -- but Obama felt more needed to be done. He gave an additional $30.

In total, B.O. left a 52% tip.

So, we gotta ask ...

Big friggin deal -- I tip 20-25% all the time and I'm on a fixed income. The money he has he could have bought everyone in the resturant lunch.

Always a gentleman, with the perfect temperament to be president. Please no more square peg republicans in the White House driving our country towards collapse.

If the server's name is Desiree then she's not a "waiter" but a waitress. Isn't anyone at TMZ intelligent enough to know that? IDIOTS!!!

Liberal TMZ praising Obama for the tip...which is charged to the taxpayers. Liberals are always really good at spending other people's money, and having liberal media praise them for that act.

Just like Obamacare, he probably didn't bother to read the receipt.

Tomato Artichoke soup, and he bought for the college kids he was eating with, not the Secret Service.

Knowing his record, more like he was unaware that the gratuity was being charged and intentionally increased the cost of lunch......By the way, $90 to feed 9 people in NYC?

An $89 dollar tab for nine people is a good deal, and that was a very generous tip

It must have been his white half that left the tip.

At least he's helping a local business instead of a chain. Isn't that the conservative mantra? Run your own business.

$30 of you hard earned tax dollars. Its not like it's his money he's spending all you stupid sheep. It's called an expense account, funded 100% by you and me.
