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.

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 ...

Screw up and calling it fiscally irresponsible. He tipped the wait staff who probably worked their butts off keeping you vultures away while he could eat. Leave the political stuff for the big boys and stick with your tabloid gossips.

Big deal. He spends MILLIONS of our taxpayers dollars on all his vacations and he gives a thirty dollar tip and everyone goes nuts.

For all those arguing that Obama doesn't make all that much:

President Barack Obama's base salary is $400,000 a year. He also has access to a $150,000 expense account as well as a $100,000 tax free travel account and $20,000 entertainment budget.

When the President is using his own credit card he should be able to tip as much as he wants. If I was the Server I would be fighting the owner of the Restaurant to keep the Original Receipt with the Presidents Signature on it. that will be worth a lot of money in the future. Getting an Authentic Signature of a President in Office is very rare and that receipt will be worth some cash.
