Even despite his affinity for ketchup-drenched steaks burnt to a crisp, President Donald Trump appears to be taking cues from health-conscious yoga nerds. Kind of. Thanks to a new book from one of Trump’s former campaign managers, Corey Lewandowski, we now know the presumptive president-elect opted to eat a gut-blasting McDonald’s order while on the campaign trail, consisting of two Big Macs, two Filet-O-Fish sandwiches, and a chocolate milkshake.
But according to Lewandowski, the president’s gluttonous go-to order was actually kind of nutritious and not as bad as it sounds, because Trump eats his burgers without the buns. It’s basically the paleo diet as embodied through our hyper-tweeting and cheeseburger-loving president.
Speaking with CNN, Lewandowski batted away the possibility that Trump’s preference for fast food burgers and drinkable chocolate was an unhealthy lifestyle choice for a 71-year-old running for the presidency.
