News – “Trump’s Fast-food Diet Gets Even More Unsettling” Donald Trump’s bad eating habits have been chronicled in alarming depth already, but the Washington Post got an advance copy of Let Trump Be Trump, Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie’s new book recounting their time on the campaign, and the paper says it paints a picture of a presidential appetite that “seems to know no bounds” at McDonald’s. A typical dinner from there, according to Lewandowski and Bossie: “two Big Macs, two Fillet-O-Fish, and a chocolate malted.”

That is a meal with two 540-calorie burgers, two 410-calorie fish sandwiches, and a 772-calorie shake (if he gets a medium size), for a grand total of 2,672 calories, 117 grams of fat, 3,556 milligrams of sodium, and 326 milligrams of cholesterol. The recommended daily calorie intake for a not-terribly-active man of Trump’s age is 2,000 to 2,200, and the American Heart Association warns not to exceed 2,400 milligrams of sodium per day unless you like high blood pressure.

Sheesh my guy and I thought I had some dark days binge eating off the McDonald’s menu but Trumpito def got me beat.
