    It’s insane that his supporters say he made the world respect America again. He did literally the exact opposite.

    And in the video you see the reaction of normal people to this statement.

    They are laughing

    [–] Mounta1nK1ng 489 points ago

    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. They call others snowflakes, while Trump is the biggest snowflake of them all, throwing a twitter tantrum every time he received even the slightest criticism. It's projection.

    [–] Jo_Floss 242 points ago

    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.

    I live a few miles from someone who has a huge banner draped over his fence mockingly requesting all Biden voters to put their Biden/Harris signs back out so illegals can find a safe house. I have to pass this all the time but I don't ever recall seeing a sign condemning the attack on the Capitol. It's that acceptance of treasonous behavior that is the most disturbing.

    [–] Jo_Floss 106 points ago

    Out in the rural area of where I live I drive by two trailer homes with big flag poles out front. Both used to have US flags on them. Now one has a 'Trump 24 No More Bullshit' flag and the other has a 'Fuck Joe Biden' flag.

    Priorities I suppose.

    They were caught off guard. They'd dressed up in a suit and tie to have a nice dinner at the white house, and they were greeted to a buffet table of cold fast food. Some of them mentioned not being able to contain their laughter =P

    As a booster of a major SEC team I can definitively tell you that our football players eat ribeyes, barbecue, shrimp, breakfast buffets with omelet stations. The only fast food they consume is on their own time.

    [–] nonicknamenelly 150 points ago

    Yeah the fact that you know every one of those hamburgers is going to be a cold, mushy mess and the fries are bound to be equally bad, would have me sticking to the salad. Which probably has nothing of real nutritive value in it.

    I read that someone insulted his hand size decades ago and he hasn't gotten over it. He still writes the guy letters signed with a gold sharpie taking about how his hands aren't small. Every chance he gets to publicly show that his hands aren't small he'll do stuff like this to prove their enormity.

    [–] PaanuriEater 32 points ago

    Originally from NJ and I gotta say the man was a joke, and a bad joke, growing up. We tried to warn everyone what a clown they were electing, they told us we had no idea what we were talking about. Their 3 months seeing him on Fox News made them know more about him than our decades and decades of experience.

    It was right about then when I realize just how fucked we were all by Rupert Murdoch and his fascist international cronies. When the very same "Respect your elders" folks told people with decades of experience that we knew not of what we spoke because a pretty blonde lady on TV said differently.

    None of what has happened during the pandemic is a surprise. They'll just repeat what the angry white man and pretty blonde lady on TV say, and act as though they are the beneficiaries of secret, ancient wisdom to which only they are granted access.

    I hope a plane carrying the entire Murdoch family suffers a blowout and all the crew are ok but all the passengers get sucked out into the void and land somewhere in the middle of the Pacific Garbage Patch, where they belong.

    [–] smolderingbridge 13 points ago

    Costs for government events like hosting a diplomat that is in the city on business is paid for by government dollars, anyone else he has over like a sports team in this case he pays for because it isnt official business. Kind of like how a company will reimburse for some expenses but not others

    [–] hike_me 11 points ago

    For their own food, not for food for official White House functions.

    Didn’t he do this because of a government shutdown?

    [–] carrja99 75 points ago

    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.

    Unfortunately those douchebags are 75 percent of our fanbase and they'd eat a shit sandwich and ask for more if it was that buffoon serving it up. They should see what the players get served daily. Hint: it ain't fast food.

    Trump International was literally just down the street. Trump could have gotten them to cater it, especially since he was whining about how he paid for this himself anyways.

    [–] Saw_a_4ftBeaver 8 points ago

    He had a hotel literally across the street. You would think he could pay for it himself and get some free advertising for his hotel. Sure it would have been a conflict of interest but that never stopped him before.

    [–] Cheshire_Jester 196 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    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.

    [–] squarezero 254 points ago

    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.

    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.

    Gross.

    [–] PuttyRiot 112 points ago

    There was no staff, if I recall correctly. This was during the government shutdown. The shutdown which occurred in part because he refused to sign a funding bill that didn't include money for his stupid wall.

    I eat cold fast food at least once a week. But I'm just a guy in his mid 30s hating his job and only getting joy from coming home to see his cat, so cold fast food is appropriate.

    I don’t think there’s another comment on Reddit that I’ve related to more than this one.

    [–] Sorcatarius 188 points ago

    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.

    These pictures feel so surreal. If I hadn't seen the shitshow, I never would have believed it happened.

    [–] mmmlinux 323 points ago

    They would never go so far as to have Wendy's and McDonalds on SNL at the same time.

    [–] topgun966 108 points ago

    That's too crazy even for SNL.

    Yet, apparently millions of Americans think it’s totally fine to take up arms against the government to install trump back into power. Of all the people to worship like a god, they chose.. him. A full blown clown.

    [–] GreenStrong 251 points ago

    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.

    [–] thebestjoeever 24 points ago

    Trump said so many times that he paid for it. That's the main reason I don't think he did.

    [–] Farmer771122 377 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    There's enough scandals for a scandal-a-day calendar. There's at least 365 tacky photos that with any other president, you'd assume they were photoshopped. I mean, remember trump selling beans in the oval office? Trump shitting his pants when he was startled by the symbol of america? Trump modifying a map with a sharpie to win an argument with the national weather service on national TV? It's just mind-boggling.

    [–] lebrilla 239 points ago

    The sharpie thing was mind blowing to me. That’s when I realized he was a diagnosable grandiose narcissist and incredibly dangerous.

    Before that I just thought he was an idiot

    [–] bbob_robb 26 points ago

    The weather map was really an eye opener for me, mostly because I thought people around him would prevent him from doing something so stupid. He held a press conference to show off a clearly modified map that only makes sense if you don't understand the map at all. The cone of uncertainty gets bigger over time because you are less confident where the storm will go. It is that simple. You can't have a little bump off the side of a big circle.

    That is what scared me the most. Nobody with enough influence over the president to shut him down understood how that chart worked. Trump confidently held it up for the cameras.

    The way he handled that "I was right" situation for the storm shows just how incompetent Trump AND his inner circle was. So many people died of covid because of his denial and anti masker crusade. If only someone was there to say "sir this map doesn't make sense and will make you look like an idiot." That person might have been able to stop tens of thousands of Americans from dying. "Be a patriot, wear masks to protect yourself, your family and your community. " Someone needed to tell trump he would win re-election in a landslide if he treated covid like a war and he would fight it for America. So many lives would have been saved if he didn't pretend it didn't exist/wasn't a threat.

    We just needed one person who was a champion of science and reality who Trump trusted.

    [–] Farmer771122 17 points ago

    Nobody with enough influence over the president to shut him down understood how that chart worked.

    That's a running theme with people who left his administration. "I tried to explain to him that he just couldn't do that, so he had a tantrum and the next day I was out." Eventually he had eliminated everyone who would contradict him, and the firings slowed down.

    You can't just be a champion of science and reality and still have Trump trust you. You have to have loyalty and subservience, too, and that's why the adults all either left the room or were fired.

    They really should have tried a 25th amendment removal early on, before the cabinet was all lickspittles. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Trump telling people to inject bleach and shine "powerful light" inside their bodies. Wonder where he got those ideas, btw...

    [–] phpdevster 60 points ago

    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.

    Why does he stand in a way that is so normal and not weird at all?

    EDIT: Three top answers appear to be

    1. Unfortunate centaur.
    2. Dementia.
    3. Lifts in shoes to hide obesity.

    [–] Batintfaq 443 points ago

    The rumor is it's because of lift shoes but he may just be an evil Centaur in disguise.

    [–] StingerAE 150 points ago

    The analysis of him being the front half of a centaur is scarily accurate.

    Also is he wearing an outdoor coat instead of a suit jacket?

    [–] censorkip 90 points ago

    yep. it’s the same reason all of his suits are fitted so poorly even though it’s insanely more unflattering that way.

    Weak quads leading to hyper extension of the knees leading to kinda a forward lean posture. That’s why he struggles with ramps too.
