President Obama to Joe Biden: I’ve got sunglasses too

President Obama went to Chipotle on Monday, continuing his luncheon tour of D.C. eateries. He walked there from a nearby hotel, having stopped by the White House's Summit on Working Families. And he wore sunglasses. Oh how he wore sunglasses.

Shades are, of course, Vice President Joe Biden's thing. Biden has made his Ray-Bans something of a trademark; he joined Instagram with a picture of the Ray-Bans at rest.

President Obama, as he showed Monday, isn't going to let Biden have the "national politician who wears sunglasses" lane all to himself, however.  Of course, Obama has some competition in his own family;  First Lady Michelle Obama not only wore sunglasses but wore them inside. Boom.
