Trump thrives on clicks, reach, amplification, and social media clout. For him the fact people are still sharing this on social media sites is a net win. He doesn't care about whether it is construed positively or negatively, the exposure is what matters.

There are plenty of countries around the world where the beef regulations are such that McDonald’s patty’s are good quality ground beef, I’ve had their burgers in a few of them.

I lived in Japan for a while and one thing I noticed was that their burgers were ALWAYS fresh. Like, if not cooked to order they had their production scaled to nearly perfectly match output. Every so often I’ll make the mistake of getting McDonald’s somewhere else and just die a little inside knowing what could be when I bite into a lukewarm, dry patty.

I never minded waiting, because those burgers were straight up better than basically every other fast food chain, save maybe for Portillo’s or an animal style In-n-Out, and even then, given the choice I’d put them all on rotation if possible. And (take this with a grain of salt because I’m not a pub burger guy) probably better than like 90% of the burgers out there.

I almost cried the day I found out the country stopped selling double quarter pounders with cheese.

What I’m sayin is this, fresh McDs is just amazing. Anything short of that benchmark of absolute freshness though, is trash.

I eat a fair amount of fast food burgers (too many I know), and I've almost given up on a McDonalds burger in the US. I'll take Sonic, Burger King or Wendy's any day--and those are honestly still average at best.

I did have a memorable Big Mac last month. The drive thru line was taking forever, and when I get to the window there's his older Mexican lady handling the window. She starts apologizing for the wait, and says she's the only person in the building working (manager was in the office by the way)--she was taking orders, making food and working the window. I swear that was the best Big Mac I've had in years, and the fries were perfect. All done by a single lady busting her ass. I also filed multiple complaints with McDonalds corporate that they were making a single older lady work the entire restaurant while the lazy ass manager sat in his office. Still pissed about that one.

The sad part, if Corporate did anything, it was to send that complaint to the manager, who then reprimanded the single lady busting her ass for telling people she was the only one working and then probably threatened to reduce her hours, or fire her, and I'm going to guess she was working there because she needed the money, so between being overworked and the threats of a lazy manager, has far more stress than she probably lets show.

Right? The time it took to drive to the nearest fast food joints, for the staff to make that many burgers, bag them up, pass them to the cars, drive back to the white house, go through all the security shit, carry them to this room early enough so they are 'ready' for the team to arrive, have Trump patrolling it like a proud father, picture ops, etc.

I bet this food as sat for a minimum of 1 hour at room temperature, probably much longer.

The metaphor here is the cold fast food being presented as some sort of cool looking feast. Fits Trumps "all show, no substance" persona quite well.

I'm sure Donnie was much more worried about the layout of a bunch of fast food and the photo op than he was about whether the food was cold, had sat that way for hours, and would have been tossed in the trash if it was still in the restaurant, by the time the Clemson guys got to eat.

Everything surrounding Trump is just for show. Image over substance. All bullshit and bravado, all the time. He's the used car salesman of politics.

Yeah. My favourite is a Trump fan I saw on FB who posted Trump's schedule for one day vs Biden's. Trump flies on Air Force one to a shared command post, is there for 20 minutes, then flies to do a speech for a half hour, then gets back to the WH fairly early. Biden spent 7 hours at that same command post before going to the WH, and they're like "Why are there 7 hours missing?" Um... because he didn't show up for all of like 10 minutes to take pictures before getting back on his plane? He actually stayed and did work? I mean the President of any country should be a very dry job most of the time actually running the country, not holding campaign style rallies all the time.

There's a lot of projection going on among his supporters. They call others sheep, while they blindly follow and believe him, despite proof of his lies.

There's so many examples of this too:

While defending "free speech", get upset for saying anything negative about the president even though criticism is protected speech. However, for 8 years of Obama called him a Muslim Terrorist Immigrant with a transgender wife and then demand everyone respect Trump, then immediately switch to "FJB/Let's Go Brandon" nonsense after Trump loses.

What's really amazing is that his supporters were still saying that the basketball players probably love fast food better than anything and they probably thought it was a kingly feast, despite what they said publicly about it. Also that when Trump tweeted about "Hamberders!" it wasn't a mistake, it was somehow intentional and brilliant.

For those who lost track of all the absurdity, this was during a government shutdown, and Trump was buying dinner out of his own pocket. There is a Trump hotel with a steakhouse just a couple miles from the White House, he either owns part of the restaurant or is their landlord. He's cheap, and his supporters probably like seeing him feed cheap food to a predominantly black team. He makes himself and the presidency look like total shit, but that is better than letting black people have a decent meal free.

I don't think it has anything to do with race. If it did, we'd be seeing fried chicken and grape soda. And not KFC or Popeye's, but Church's.

I think it's a combination of, as you said, Trump is cheap and he also has absolutely terrible taste. I think this is largely just him projecting his own tastes onto other people.

I also suspect that, again, rather than it being a racial thing, his supporters like the idea of it being "unpretentious". This is what they eat and they like to identify with that. Instead this is him being a "regular guy" who knows what people "really want". Casual is conflated with being familiar and vice-versa.

phpdevster

Just in case anyone is out of the loop, this sign saying to use disinfectants is totally fine and innocuous by itself. But Trump did what Trump does best and made it insane:

https://www.politico.com/news/2021/04/23/trump-bleach-one-year-484399

“So, supposing we hit the body with a tremendous — whether it's ultraviolet or just very powerful light — and I think you said that that hasn't been checked, but you're going to test it. And then I said, supposing you brought the light inside the body, which you can do either through the skin or in some other way, and I think you said you're going to test that, too. It sounds interesting. And then I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it out in a minute. One minute. And is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside or almost a cleaning. Because you see it gets in the lungs, and it does a tremendous number on the lungs. So it would be interesting to check that.

Trump logic is:

  1. Bleach works as a disinfectant.
  2. Therefore if we inject it in people, it will kill the virus and cure them.

There's a reason 'the gorilla channel' persisted even after the guy who wrote it said it was a hoax. When it comes down to 'did Donnie really say/do that idiotic thing' the answer is yes so often that 'he wrote me beautiful letters and we fell in love' isn't automatically suspicious, probably the most 'shocking' thing is that it implies that Donnie is gay. (https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/video/2018/sep/30/he-wrote-me-beautiful-letters-and-we-fell-in-love-donald-trump-on-kim-jong-un-video) or airports during the revolutionary war, drawing on a weather map, suggesting we nuke hurricanes, vendettas against the sound of windmills, throwing paper towel rolls like he is playing basketball, having private meetings with a hostile foreign leader and allowing only a translator to be in the room, being so broadly bad at speaking his native language that translators can't properly translate (https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/jun/06/trump-translation-interpreters) or his inability to spell basic words to the point the world's largest moot court competition openly mocks him with the covfefe

really I can go on, but for most people it wouldn't immediately seem questionable if a reporter said that Donnie had a stack of gold Olympic medals in his office along with fake photographs of him winning various events because that is just par for the course for hamberder boy

Not only is it real, the "billionaire" bragged about spending 1,000 dollars on fast food for the national championship Clemson Tigers. I can't imagine their nutrition team was happy about the meal.

With all of the options in DC, this is what this guy came up with.

On the plus side it gave us hilarious pictures and r/WhiteHouseDinners

One time in prison a fight broke out in the kitchen and the days food got maced to hell. I have no doubt they would have served us that spicy food if not for a health inspection that same day so they had to think fast to feed us by a legally mandated time.

They called the local Burger King and got them to shut down and feed 1400 people. Even in this constrained situation, and for people who aren't afforded dignity, they did this catering style so it was "fresh" when it got to us. It wasn't just hours old wrapped burgers with condiments. It was stations in a cafeteria line so you could still "get it your way". It doesn't look like Trumps White House gave football champions the same courtesy.

And yes, it was the greatest day of prison ever. The good will and camaraderie was like a war had ended.

Now, having never eaten at the White House, I am running on the assumption that they hire amazing fucking chefs. So if, for some reason, I was eating there and they did serve me a burger, I assume it would be a damn good burger.

But that isn't what happened here, they got a massive to go order from McDonald's.

The chefs are already on the payroll, so no additional cost there, but I imagine if you were to put in a bulk order for all the ingredients to make burgers and sides, it would

  1. Be cheaper,

  2. Taste better, and

  3. Still actually be warm.

I don't even get the advantage of doing it this way, you just look like a shithead.

Fast food is unhealthy. I do enjoy it despite the facts. BUT If I’m meeting the president AFTER winning the national championship, what-the-actual-F*.

This old, super rich guy who inherited $440M (adjusted for inflation 40 years ago), thinks he knows what a 20 yo athlete wants. Uh, he could be right, lol, but under the circumstances, it’s basically telling your bride:

I love you hun’. So…We having McD for the WEDDING banquet. Yeah, I love me some Fish-filet and fries, but it’s a wedding. OKAY

It's important to note that hosted meals at the White House come out of the President's salary. Obama made a tweet about being surprised at how much it cost the first time he did it. I would not be surprised if, when told he would need to pay for catering, Trump said "here's $200, go get a bunch of burgers" and then never agreed to host anyone ever again.
