Transcript for President Obama Has Credit Card Rejected on Date Night
Have you had a hassle with your credit card, maybe it was rejected and you didn't know why? Apparently president Obama can relate. The president had a problem paying with plastic and Sara is here to tell us what happened. Good morning. Presidents, they're just like us. Going out on the town with a lady friend, the first lady in this case, a night of dinner and drinks, and the check comes. Rejected. While signing an executive order to beef up security for government credit cards, admitting that a server at a resident had to break bad news. Sorry, Mr. President, your credit card was declined. I really think that I have been paying my bill. The real reason -- I don't use it enough. They thought there was some fraud going on. Reporter: The president, out of luck. The first lady, saving the day. Fortunately Michelle had hers. Reporter: The Obamas chose Estela for the dinner date. What did they order from the mouth watering menu? The endive, walnut and anchovy salad and the burrata and salsa Verde with charred bread. But it's not the first time the president's had check troubles eating out. Running a deficit when he picked up the tab for Texas barbecue back in July. Are you all right? Reporter: Even vice president Joe Biden was a little light. $56.25. Reporter: During this surprise stop at a sandwich shop. You have ten bucks? I have 50. Reporter: As for future money mixups. I'm not speaking to the current status of the presidential credit card.

The big debate on the set is how do you pronounce endive? Isn't it endive? Rob Marciano, do you know how to pronounce -- is it endive?
