Donald Trump’s Go-To McDonald’s Order Will Make Your Stomach Hurt Just By Reading It
Last year, the person who runs (or, more accurately, ran) the McDonald’s Twitter account managed to send ripples through the internet when they tweeted out a diss concerning Donald Trump’s (allegedly) tiny hands. Given his impressive ability to hold grudges over the smallest slights, you’d think Trump would have immediately taken to Twitter to sing the praises of Burger King, but it appears there’s virtually nothing that will ever get in the way of his love for the Golden Arches.
According to an upcoming book by former Trump aides David Bossie and Corey Lewandowski, McDonald’s was a staple of the President’s diet on the campaign trail, and while it might sound impossible, it sounds like his typical meal is even bigger than his ego.
According to an excerpt published by the Washington Post, Trump’s go-to dinner probably makes that giant order you’ve made when you’ve gotten a little too stoned look like a Happy Meal:
Trump’s appetite seems to know no bounds when it comes to McDonald’s, with a dinner order consisting of “two Big Macs, two Fillet-O-Fish, and a chocolate malted.”
Business Insider crunched the numbers and figured out the meal contains almost 2,500 calories and 83 grams of fat.
One might think that Trump— who doesn’t exercise because he believes humans are born with a finite amount of energy— would think twice before consuming the number of calories the FDA suggests a person should eat in a day in a single meal, but if we’ve learned anything in the past year or so, it’s that he really isn’t a fan of what a lot of federal agencies have to say.
Trump’s love of fast food is well-known (and well-documented). After he secured the Republican nomination in May 2016, he celebrated by picking up McDonald’s and chowing down on his private jet— although it appears he was about three-quarters of the way through his meal when the picture was taken. He’s also been photographed eating KFC with a knife— a totally normal thing that normal people do.
I doubt Trump will ever start walking when he takes to the links as opposed to tearing up the golf course with his cart, but he might want to at least start thinking about it.
