President Obama and Rep Karen Bass go to Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles in LA
While in LA, President Obama and CBC member Rep. Karen Bass, make an unscheduled stop at Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles.
After arriving in LA at about 4:30 Pacific Time, helo’g to a landing zone in Brentwood and driving the empty freeway for a time, motorcade exited into what looked to be a predominately Latino neighborhood of West Los Angeles for an off-the-record visit to Roscoe’s. Pool had to enter from the rear, to see booths full of early-dining families stretching and craning their necks excitedly to watch POTUS, who already was at the counter ordering for himself and nearby aides, including Valerie Jarrett, Jay Carney, David Plouffe and Marvin Nicholson. With him was Representative Karen Bass, the Democrat who represents the area in the House. Our camera colleagues say POTUS ordered the No. 9, “Country Boy” – 3 wings with choice of waffle, potato salad or French fries ($8.90, according to the menu) – among other things we couldn’t hear. He quickly moved to the cashier.
