Hillary Clinton, the candidate who "will fight for average working people" fails to leave a tip at restaurant

It is always easy to say that someone who claims that they will fight for average working people, but assuming that they even know what will help those people, how do you measure whether they actually care?  Well, one simple way would be whether they actually tip waiters or waitresses.  Hillary Clinton is worth hundreds of millions of dollars.  She probably isn't even paying for her meals as I suspect her campaign is paying for them.  Granted the campaign will apparently only have $2.5 billion to work with this go round, but you would hope that either Hillary or her campaign could afford to leave a 15% tip or even the change that they got back on the meal.  From Bloomberg Politics:
"Her bill was $20 and some change, and they paid with $21 and left" without putting anything in a tip jar on the counter, Charles Wright, the manager at the Maumee, Ohio, Chipotle restaurant told Bloomberg. . . . . 
"We get a bunch of tips," said Wright,  who only realized that the customer had been the presidential candidate after news organizations began calling the restaurant and he had reviewed surveillance video. "If we're doing our job right, people tip."  
The question of whether Clinton had tipped the workers during the Chipotle stop was first asked by conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh on Tuesday.  . . .
 UPDATE:  For those who claim that people don't tip at this restaurant, please actually read the points in bold from the article.  The restaurant not only has a "tip jar," but they say that "If we're doing our job right, people tip."

Still, I am sure that some people won't tip, but don't you imagine that the people who feel most sympathetic to the workers would be the ones most likely to tip?
