In a marketing coup for Whataburger, Joe Biden consumed a cheeseburger at the Texas burger chain following a campaign rally in Dallas on March 2, in anticipation of Super Tuesday.

A video of the visit, in which he was accompanied by Beto O'Rourke and his wife Amy Sanders, was posted on Biden's Twitter account.

The rally was at Gilley's, the music venue in downtown Dallas, and brought together Biden plus ex-candidates Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar, who offered their endorsements after dropping out of the race.

Not at the rally: Elizabeth Warren, Mike Bloomberg, or Bernie Sanders who came to Dallas on February 14.

Prior to the rally, Buttigieg and Biden stopped at Chicken Scratch/The Foundry, the fried chicken joint in West Dallas. Attendees included Congressman Marc Veasey, who posted photos and videos on Instagram.

The Whataburger they visited was the location at CityPlace at 2428 N. Haskell Ave.

"Seeing what this whole Whataburger thing is about with @BetoORourke!" Biden said in a tweet. He placed his order, got his change, tipped the server, then allowed himself to be photographed eating a cheeseburger and drinking a "black & white," IE a vanilla shake with chocolate syrup. Not your regular order.

The video shows him hugging a child for a very long time, but that can't compete with President Donald Trump's recent intimate moment with the U.S. flag, where he kisses and caresses it and mouthes the words "I love you, baby."
