BREAKING: Obama just ate a Jucy Lucy; press secretary reports it was "delicious"

Mark your calendars, Minnesota: June 26, 2014, is officially the day our commander-in-chief bit into the food of the gods we call the Jucy Lucy.

Spotted at Matt's Bar enjoying the Twin Cities' classic cheese-stuffed burger, President Barack Obama may have just escalated the cold war between Matt's and the 5-8 Club.

Where should Obama go while he's in Minneapolis?

The POTUS is in Minneapolis through Friday, where he'll give a speech about the economy at Lake Harriet Bandshell. Today he attended a Minnehaha Park town hall meeting and met a Minnesota mother, Rebekah Erler, who had written a letter to him explaining the woes of the nation's middle class earlier this year.

Since Obama's Jucy Lucy became official, we've been plagued with burning questions. Will the president ever go back to boring cheese-on-top burgers again? Will the Jucy Lucy make its way onto our flag? Will the 5-8 Club be given its day of presidential rebuttal? Will Obama survive this town hall meeting with a food coma of such proportions?

The people deserve to know.

When I first arrived in Mpls, 35 years ago, one of the first things I realized was that everyone had a 'favorite hamburger. It was the beginning of realizing that all the warnings I had heard about MN not having any good food was entirely wrong.

Obama later said, "What was special about that? That cheese tasted cheap."

Matts bar is about the 6th best place in the metro for a jucy lucy. The Nook has the best.

I am seriously not a fan of Obama, but anyone who gives up on Matt's because someone you don't like went there - while I may agree with you politically, I think you are a moron culinarily.

It's the press secretary. They aren't going to say anything other than it was great. You could feed him dog food and the press secretary will never say anything negative.

President blatantly kills children via drone strikes and straight up lied about getting us out of war, got us into more war, and all anyone cares about is the burger he ate

Well, if it's good enough for the president... I mean, how often to do I get to eat a PRESIDENTIAL lunch. But on the real, president or not, Obama is just a person and people eat. Restaurants facilitate this truth. If your'e going to STOP eating at a restaurant because someone you don't like ate there, then you are pathetic. Especially if that person frequently eats high quality meals and goes on to say good things about the restaurant in question. I mean, honestly, how petty can you be?
