Despite being a billionaire who can eat whatever he wants, Donald Trump enjoys fast food. “I think the food is good,” he once said. “I think all of those places, Burger King, McDonald’s, I can live with it… I’m a very clean person. I like cleanliness. I think you’re better off going there than someplace you have no idea where the food is coming from. It’s a certain standard.” Yes, because when most people think of fast food chains, they think of cleanliness.
It’s unclear whether Trump will still be a McDonald’s fan, though, after someone hacked into the company’s corporate Twitter account on Thursday, and fired off a nasty (and pinned!) tweet. Directed at @realDonaldTrump, it read, “You are actually a disgusting excuse of a President and we would love to have @BarackObama back, also you have tiny hands.”
The tweet has since been deleted. Meanwhile, I wish I could delete this memory of how Trump chows down on McDonald’s.
It was fun being on the Boeing 757 with Trump. Before the flight from Boston to Bangor, he’d ordered lunch for the crew — McDonald’s all the way. Not an affectation like Hillary at Chipotle — he tore off the buns (“Do you know how many calories you save that way?”) and then doused the patties with ketchup before gobbling them down. (Via)
McDonald’s is leading the resistance because that’s no way to enjoy a Big Mac. Anyway, the reactions are coming in quicker than a stop at the drive-thru.
UPDATE: McDonald’s tweeted an update to say that their account was compromised, and they’re digging into what happened. Meanwhile, the Internet deluge continues.
