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 ...

Don't get so excited about his generous tip. Most likely, it is from a government expense account and not his personal account. Spending the taxpayers money.

Who cares it's like taking his shopping receipt and saying OMG he buys toilet paper. They have their own individual income. It's his choice. You voted him and to office knowing he would be paid a certain amount. dingle berries.

I thought the tip was $3070.00. $30? Not all that impressive.

The fact that they would even put it a 20% gratuity for the President is pretty cheap on their part.

He's very generous with the taxpayers money. If you think this money came from his own bank account, think again. He gets reimbursed for it and he can write off of his taxes, he's not the kind of guy not to take advantage of it. When he starts being generous with his own money (not the taxpayers money), then you may have a story.

The workers however are now only working part time as Obamacare costs jobs and forced the company to make everyone part time
