With mere weeks until this election finally ends, a chain of burger joints in D.C. has converted its busy location about one and a half miles from the White House into a veritable Hillary Clinton shrine. Z-Burger owner Peter Tabibian says he went there after watching the campaign continually worsen to a point where he decided “enough is enough.” He explains he fled Iran to escape religious persecution and — maybe call him spoiled — has apparently gotten used to the whole democratic rule-of-law thing since immigrating. He commissioned Peter Galifianakis, uncle of slightly better-known relative Zach, to do a humongous painting of what appears to be Clinton as a sword-wielding Greek goddess. That oil work now hangs in a gold frame inside the chain’s Wisconsin Avenue location, and plastered across the store’s entire front is an eight-foot-or-so blowup of the painting, plus the word Hillary and a quote that proclaims, “When there are no ceilings, the sky’s the limit.”

Tabibian admits the new décor violates the “first rule of business” about mixing politics, but adds that he basically had no choice: “I have put my business at risk because I believe that, as an immigrant, Hillary Clinton is going to be good for the United States … I had to make this statement because I know Hillary is going to be a great president, and I know she’s going to keep the American dream alive.”

As expected, America has become suddenly very divided about the joint’s “loaded” Z-Sauce-topped burgers and concretes, though:
