Obama cuts hours-long BBQ line; ‘exercising his executive power’ excuse ticks off Texans

Powered by Topple

Obama felt like barbeque – or another photo-op – after his speech in Austin Thursday.

He reportedly dropped $300 at the famous Franklin BBQ restaurant, but apparently broke a sacred Texas rule – never skip the line at a barbeque joint.

Franklin is one of those places where people wait for hours and hours for the award-winning grub and let’s face it, nobody likes a cutter, even if it’s POTUS.

Owner Aaron Franklin made it clear the president was the first ever to cut the line, according to The Statesman.

“That’s our thing, no one skips the line … except Obama,” he said.

“I know this is a long line. I feel real bad, but – I’m gonna cut,” Obama said, according to the Statesman’s Chuck Lindell.

The internet blew-up when Obama reportedly announced he was”exercising his executive power.”
