Bill Clinton didn’t inhale and President Trump never ate the buns. Facing CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota’s questions about Trump’s super gross eating habits, his former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski explained that scarfing two Big Macs, two Fillet-O-Fish, and a chocolate milkshake are totally fine because Trump “never ate the bread, which is the important part.”


Mmmkay. That’s not just irrelevant to the healthfulness question, it’s troubling to visualize. Far be it from us at The Takeout to police how you eat your food, but we’d really like to think that our Commander-in-Chief doesn’t dissect his Happy Meals like a picky three-year-old. Come on, cancelling kids’ health insurance takes energy, Donnie, so you’re gonna need those carbs.

If this is Trump’s version of a “diet” though, we shouldn’t be surprised. The man has a tenuous grasp on science (among other topics), so perhaps a high-school-level health class refresher in order. Carbs are fine to eat in moderation, as are fish sandwiches, and removing the bun to get to the sweet, sweet processed-and-fried fish patty within more quickly isn’t the equivalent of Whole30 or anything.
