John King highlights an incriminating picture of President Obama during his recent trip to Chipotle. Did he overstep his political power here or is it OK for a customer to breach the boundary of the sneeze guard?
Food in the Field gives a sneak peek into what CNN's team is eating as they travel the globe. Today's contributor, John King is anchor of CNN’s 7 p.m. ET program, John King, USA, and CNN’s chief national correspondent.
