Trump just treated guests to cheap fast food burgers and fries once again, and everyone is losing it

Donald Trump’s unbridled love of fast food is well-documented and — if some reports are to be believed — actually stems from his belief that he’s less likely to be poisoned if he sticks to such premade meals. On top of that, the manner in which he touts his McDonalds habit is a clear effort to shore up his populist reputation, a hamfisted attempt to make himself seem like just another regular guy rather than the corrupt oligarch he really is.


Today, the president’s fast food obsession surged to the forefront once again. The Hill reports that Trump hosted the North Dakota State University Bison football team at the White House to celebrate its recent title in the Football Championship Subdivision of the NCAA.

Just like when he hosted the Clemson Tigers in January, the president decided against wheeling out one of the gourmet meals that the White House chefs are known for, and instead gave them a massive spread of fast food. Trump even acknowledged the fact that he could have had a meal prepared by the chefs for the players but decided against it because he said: “I know you people.”


Photos of the mountains of McDonalds Big Macs and Chick-fil-A quickly went viral on Twitter, as they did last time. And once again, Twitter users swarmed the president over his strange culinary choice.

While it’s a small, relatively innocuous stunt in the scheme of things, it’s another reminder of how bizarre our politics have become under Trump. Under any other president, a fast food smorgasbord being used to “honor” White House visitors would have been rightfully recognized as supremely strange. Under Trump, it barely registers.

Put simply, the White House has lost much of its dignity under this administration and hopefully, the next Democrat to ascend to the Oval Office can bring back some of what’s been lost.
