President Donald Trump’s relationship with food and drink has been received as well as his relationship with North Korea.
Over the years, the Commander-in-Chief has been mercilessly mocked after being involved in multiple culinary faux-pas, including his attempt to make his Trump Steaks a thing:
Trump then further embarrassed himself when it was revealed at a BLT Steakhouse in Washington DC that he likes his steak cooked well-done with a side of tomato ketchup, which I think we can all agree is just blasphemy and tediously mundane.
In fact, some people on Twitter were outraged:
Then there was his attempt to drink a bottle of water using two hands, which many likened to that of a toddler:
And then there’s there’s the small matter of the pizza they serve in Trump Tower, which left Italians all over the world screaming in pain over the $11.50 margarita abomination:
However, now the businessman-turned-president has come under fire after his favorite McDonald’s order has left people pointing out his tasteless hypocrisy.
Just like President Donald Trump, McDonald’s has divided the opinion of many nations across the globe since its founding in 1940 by the McDonald brothers, Richard and Maurice. Some people are, as the chain’s slogan suggests, “lovin’ it”, whereas many others believe it a corporate plague that has played a huge part in the obesity epidemic that has led to the US becoming the “fattest country in the world”.
After countless documentaries and news bulletins, we’re now all extremely aware of the health implications McDonald’s menu can have on our bodies, but if enjoyed once-in-a-while as part of a healthy lifestyle, who can resist a cheeky Big Mac?
And one of McDonald’s biggest fans is 71-year-old President Trump, who has always been very vocal in his love for the fast-food giant.
Not only has he starred in television commercials for the chain, but Trump’s former body-man, Keith Schiller, revealed that he reportedly asked the kitchen staff to make him McDonald’s burgers.
Yes, Trump loved McDonald’s so much he wanted one in his own house! According to Politico, the kitchen staff down the hall from the Oval Office were asked to recreate the chain’s famous quarter pounders, and also the McDonald’s world famous dessert, the apple pie.
However, the public has always been left in the dark about how much McDonald’s the president consumes in one sitting, and what his favorite burgers are. Until now…
Thanks to the upcoming book Let Trump Be Trump, written by the President’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and former aide David Bossie, his extraordinary appetite for the fast food has been revealed.
Extracts from the book were released in advance to the Washington Post where it is has been revealed that during the campaign trail, the timing of Trump’s meals were executed with military-like precision. The authors claim:
“The orchestrating and timing of Mr. Trump’s meals was as important as any other aspect of his march to the Presidency.”
The pages also reveal the monstrous quantity the President would eat during his presidential campaign. Where most people are satisfied with one sandwich from Maccy D’s, Trump demolished FOUR in one serving.
In just one sitting from the fast-food giants, Trump devoured TWO Big Macs, TWO Fillet-O-Fish and one chocolate malted Shake.
In fact, according to McDonald’s official nutritional guide, this equates to a staggering over 1,900 calories! Considering the fact the recommended daily allowance for a man is 2,500, we hope Trump skipped breakfast and had a vegetable medley for dinner.
Following the revelation, many people have been quick to point out the hypocrisy of President Trump, unearthing his interview on The Dr. Oz Show where he proclaimed:
“When you’re running for president, I think you have an obligation to be healthy. I just don’t think you can do the work if you’re not healthy. I don’t think you can represent the country properly if you’re not a healthy person.”
Now, do you think two Big Macs, two Fillet-O-Fish and a Shake is the meal option of a “healthy” 71-year-old man? Neither do we…
