Imagine being such a troglodyte that even though you have a world class chef at your beckon call you still routinely order 5,000 calories of fried food instead.

Hmmmmm  Broiled salmon with a ginger orange glaze? Or a deep fried fillot-o-fish on cake-sweet bread slathered with tartar sauce?

By the law of infinite infinities, there is a universe where Al Gore is everyone's dad, because he had all the adult men murdered, and mated with everyone left.

Well, there are infinite universes where it happened. And infinite where it didn't, and infinite still where there was never a concept of an Al Gore at all.

Which makes it all moot. We're not in that place where what if might have seen. We are observing this one.

That much food turns my stomach, especially since just the fish sandwich would be enough for me.  While I understand his wanting his favorite meal while recovering, that meal is way too heavy on fat and calories.  Not that he would care about such matters.

Honestly, the thing that surprises me is that Trump didn't want to do that simply to flaunt that he could.  Like, it's completely unsurprising that he wouldn't care about the actual quality of the food he was eating, but it is very surprising that he passed up the opportunity to have a personal chef making ostentatious meals that he could brag about on social media.

I kind of want to say the expense of it (the president pays for his own food, right?) was the obstacle, but I'm also thinking that the Trump white house would have found a way to ignore that or even grift off of it.

On top of that you know the dude isn't going through the drive through, he's having it picked up by car in D.C. traffic. 30 minute old McDonald fries sound pretty good.

"Trump contracted the virus days after his first debate with now-President Biden in Cleveland. The White House at the time did not disclose whether he complied with the venue's testing requirement for both candidates."

No he didn't. Trump tested positive 3 days BEFORE the debate and went anyway to try to infect Biden.

He eats fast food because the people preparing it don't know who it's for and are less likely to spit in it as anyone who know they were cooking for Trump would be unable to resist adding 'extra seasoning'.

AlternateHistoryHub described what might have happened in such an alternate universe.  Probably the most consequential part was that the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in 1991 likely would have still happened, but since Bush would have been termed out, there's a higher chance that his successor would have toppled Saddam and thus unleashed chaos in the Middle East 12 years earlier.

...honestly, I don't think that universe would be MUCH different from our own. Other than, what, Cheney or Rumsfeld or Baker would have been President from 89-93? Because I don't think Mondale could have beat Bush in '84, though it wouldn't have been nearly as lopsided.

In that alternate universe, Republicans spent fall of 2001 and most of 2002 calling for President Gore to be impeached for letting a hijacking happen on September 11, killing 53 people when the plane crashed in an empty field. Nearly 30% of Fox News' establishing shots feature the Twin Towers in the background.

TFG had no taste to begin with, so how would you tell if Covid affected him?
 
2022-08-19 11:32:23 AM  
Look, I have blunt tastebuds.  I know that. I have a deviated septum, I'm constantly fighting congestion, and I may have long covid just to really pile it up. I've never been one for subtle flavors and blah blah blah.

But I cannot IMAGINE having such jacked up tastebuds that I'd deliberately want bottom tier fast food over something a chef could give you.

Now I know coming out of 'so bad you're hospitalized' you're in a weird state. If I could ever make a meal that would replicate the euphoria I felt drinking chicken broth after surgery, I'd ascend to another plane of reality (I know it was the drugs).

But holy crap. Holy farking crap, man.

This is just another gilt over rotten wood moment. He really is a poor man's idea of a rich man. He's got literally no taste. Amazing.

Trump is proof that eating/living healthy is just not the factor in life longevity that would be expected.

That fat fark is in a constant state of rage with a diet that should have killed him years ago. But nooooooo.

Add in the large fries (probably 600-800 calories right there) and any of the large "shakes" from McDonald's (another 1,000-1,200 calories) and he's easily over 2,500 calories for the entire meal. One daily allowance of calories (and that's an allowance for a decently healthy, moderately active adult) in one meal. Sodium in that meal is probably 3-4x RDA, sugars are probably 3-4x RDA, and fat content is probably 3-4x RDA.

I think about that a lot. If the 2000 election hadn't been handed to GWB by the FL SC, what would America and the world look like now. What if the warnings of 9-11 had been heeded and only a handful of us remembered that one news cycle about a terrorist plan that was foiled. No US invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan. It's hard to picture, it's so different.
