Minglin’ and jokin’

As soon as Barack Obama landed in Austin today, the president made a taco pit stop over at Torchy’s Tacos on far South 1st Street. KEYE has video of the president’s taco venture, where he ordered the political trio: Democrat, Independent, and the Republican, "because I’m bipartisan," he said. He also bought tacos for his staff and Austin Mayor Steve Adler, shook hands with staff and customers, and mingled for a bit. He joked with a seated patron: "You got a taco on your lap."

People already shared their opinions on Twitter. Sadly, there is no footage of the president eating those tacos.
