From a White House pool report regarding President Obama‘s Wednesday visit to a Costco store in Lanham, Md.:

He stopped near a display of Kirkland brand organic tortilla chips (only $4.99) and said they would be great for the Super Bowl. “I’ll have to get mine,” he said.

Then he talked to a man making birthday cakes and three employees working on sweet rolls. Before leaving the bakery, he hugged a woman named Dora who was boxing up chocolate chip cookies.

POTUS said she was “bringing people happiness and joy.”
