Allen West Serves Burgers at Five Guys on Saturday

Yeah... we couldn't make this stuff up if we tried.
Congressman Allen West has done a lot of crazy things in his short political career (and we're not even talking about policies).

He's been to oh-so-many tea party rallies, went diving with the flag, and has been photographed with both Donald Trump and his hair. But we haven't seen West flip burgers... until now.

This Saturday, July 16, West will be at Five Guys Burgers and Fries at Cypress Creek Station from noon to 1 p.m. to serve burgers to 15 mentors and mentees from the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Broward County, as well as the public (we're assuming non-tea party members are also welcome at this shindig).

West won't actually be flipping burgers, but he will be behind the counter taking orders, so feel free to get a delicious burger and hear him speak about "setting the economic conditions for small business success." We're really not too sure whether this is just a photo-op, a campaign stunt, or a nice gesture to feed some kids, but we are guessing the most popular beverage of the day will be... iced tea.

Five Guys Burgers and Fries, Cypress Creek Station, 6365 N. Andrews Ave., Fort Lauderdale.

Nevermind, I just checked. He is the guy that was forced to resign or be court marshalled from the Army. I stand corrected.

Is this the guy that was dishonorably discharged from the Army?

I think the Congressman, plain and simple, is being PRESENT, front and center, for his constituents, Laine...no need to try to worry your little head on trying to make anything else of it! ALL Districts should be so lucky as to have a Represntative interested in their happenings, the way Congressman West is! I guess, like so many others, you just aren't used to the idea of a man  doing his job to the best of his ability. Get used to it, Laine...that's the way Congressman West is and will be!

Lainey needs to get a real life and actually start volunteering in her community. Maybe then she would be a productive member of society.

Dear left wing wacko,

Please stop with the politics. You're an misguided idiot. There is nothing more annoying than stupid people who think they know something.

To Laine Doss,Your comments are not surprising as they show that you are the epitome of partisan, sophomoric liberal bashing. It just rubs you the wrong way that someone might actually do something good just because that's they way they are. Good people do good things. If you actually spent more of your time doing something good for others you may actually understand what it is that Congressman West is doing. Grow up and open up your bleeding left heart and give credit when it is due.RJD

I agree that it's really nice for a politician to give back to the community. But when the press release says that he's serving lunch to 15 mentors and mentorees only and also is having a photo opportunity to talk about small business, it smells likes something more politically-infused than just hanging out with kids. If he didn't invite the press to talk about small business to muddy the waters, I'd be inclined to agree with you.

If every congressperson were as sensible as Allen West, this would be a far better country.
