Pres. Obama, Aboard First Air Force One Flight, Orders Burger


The inauguration may be behind us, but we're only beginning to get to know President Barack Obama's discerning palate.

In this clip from a National Geographic Channel series titled On Board Air Force One, the then-president-elect rides aboard the presidential plane for the very first time. Dinner is served on the plane, and the nation's leader barely takes a glance at the menu before proclaiming, "I'll see how you guys do a burger."

To watch the video and see how our new president prefers eating his burger,

.

As it turns out, President Obama orders his burger medium well, with cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, and dijon mustard as the star condiment. The famously health-conscious president requests a salad on the side, but adds, "I'll still take the fries."

Obama's burger preferences are acceptable — with the exception of the medium well part. I'm a little disappointed the president doesn't like his meat a little more rare (it's juicier that way, in my opinion).

Do you approve of how the president orders his burgers? Do you prefer a rare or well-done patty?

I hate when people have multiple accounts but I hate even more when people make it obvious that they have multiple accounts.

Uh, unless he was on board with Bush, he could not have been aboard Air Force One as President Elect. It's only called Air Force One when the President is on board.And frankly, who cares what he ate? Enough with the Obama worship, already!

People really need to find something better to do than worry themselves about what pres. Obama and his family are doing. What could be more interesting than watching him eat a burger? Come on really. Oh and by the way who in the world would want to eat half done meat. Get real!!!!!!

It's just a burger. Not really news. This is news; How many think it's fair for President Obama to accept gifts from singer Aretha Franklin and tells his staff that they are not allowed to accept gifts?

Rare ground meat grosses me out for some reason. I feel like I can smell the rawness. Anyways, well-done for me.

I think he should of just had veggies and no meat. I agree he should of had it very well done if he had to have the burger.

@LaurenG22 -- same here. If the burger is made from straight-up ground beef, I'll order it medium. But if I know the beef is coming from a high-end cut, I'll order it medium rare. :Drool:

Yum, I am with you--- I love a burger medium or medium rare...depending on the restaurant. I would rather eat a rare burger then a well-done one if that tells you anything :)
