Lunch at the White House

 I just saw this picture on the New York Times front page:

Seriously? Obama and Biden eat lunch with each other at opposite ends of a long table? I’ve seen that used as a joke in movies, but never in real life. Is there some kind of weird White House etiquette that prevents them from sitting right next to each other?

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
