• CHEAPSKATE: Chipotle Manager Says Hillary Didn’t Leave Anything in Tip Jar

    Hillary Clinton and her advisers decided that driving from New York to Iowa in a van nicknamed “Scooby,” with impromptu stops for a burrito bowl at Chipotle Mexican Grill, would make the former secretary of state seem more like an ordinary American.

    Surveillance footage showing her wearing large sunglasses while paying for a chicken burrito bowl, chicken salad, blackberry Izze drink and a soda during her Chipotle outing went viral.

    While the liberal media’s knee-jerk reaction to Clinton’s Chipotle visit was, “Wow, look!  That’s the new Hillary!  Why, we’ve never seen her eat a burrito,” conservative radio show host Rush Limbaugh asked the only relevant question of the Chipotle spectacle: Did she leave a tip?

    “I would like to know if she left anything in the tip jar, because that would be an indication that she understands the average, ordinary, everyman that she seeks to represent,” Limbaugh said. “I mean, that’s where the people that work at Chipotle, that’s where they make a little extra, in the tip jar, and I haven’t heard a word about whether or not she visited the tip jar, whether she put anything in it or not.”

    And the answer is… no. She left nothing in the tip jar. You know, with Clinton being “dead broke” and all, she couldn’t afford an extra dollar or whatever.

    “Her bill was $20 and some change, and they paid with $21 and left” without putting anything in a tip jar on the counter, Charles Wright, the manager at the Maumee, Ohio, Chipotle restaurant said.

    “The other lady paid the bill,” Wright said of  Huma Abedin, the vice chairwoman of her presidential campaign . “Clinton didn’t pay.”

    Clinton entered  Chipotle “at the end of the lunch rush,” and the change from the meal amounted to less than a dollar, but it was pocketed rather than deposited in the tip jar.

    “We get a bunch of tips,” said Wright, who only realized that the customer had been the presidential candidate after news organizations began calling the restaurant and he had reviewed surveillance video. “If we’re doing our job right, people tip.”

    Clinton’s husband has earned over $100 million in speech income since 2001, her daughter just bought a $10 million apartment in New York City and Hillary was giving $300,000 speeches six weeks ago.
