The president paid a visit to Zingerman’s Deli in Ann Arbor, Mich., today as part of his push to increase the minimum wage.
In his remarks, he bumped up against some fundamental issues of fairness, too. Thinking his sandwich was too big at first, he gave half of it to adviser Valerie Jarrett. But he came to regret committing himself to redistribution.
“After I finished [my] half, I wanted the half back,” he said. “But it was too late, all she had was the pickle — so I took the pickle.”
“If they tried to this sell [Paul Ryan's budget] at Zingerman’s, they’d have to call it the ’stinkburger’ or the ‘meanwich,’” he said.
