Donald Trump’s problem with leakers has reached the point where even the wait staff in his restaurant are anonymously passing along humiliating information about him to the press. No wonder he seems consumed with rage at the media.
In what is yet another ethical violation, Trump spontaneously decided he need to go to his own D.C. hotel to get dinner, with staff and friends in tow. For those of you keeping score, that’s the president using taxpayer money to go to his own new hotel and spend a fortune, while making the White House staff accompanying him do the same – all while getting free press for the business he swore he would have no connection to while in the White House.
At the BLT Steakhouse inside he ordered what is apparently his favorite dish. A waiter told an IJR reporter who was in attendance:
8:45 PM: Trump is served his entree. According to a waiter, who wished to remain anonymous:
“The President ordered a well-done steak. An aged New York strip. He ate it with catsup as he always does. The sides and appetizers on the table were shared. Three jumbo shrimp cocktails were delivered before the meal. At one point, the President looked at his watch and remarked ‘They are filming ‘Saturday Night Live’ right now. Can’t wait to see what they are gonna do to me this week.’ It was hard to serve him because he is so funny and relaxed, it makes you laugh.”
A well-done steak…with ketchup. Despite his wealth, Trump has the palate of a small child.
The internet wasn’t impressed.

Donald Trump eats his steak well-done and with ketchup? That's an impeachable offense https://t.co/ZLijeveBuc

Trump’s inability to eat adult food is already legendary. The 70-year-old president reportedly consumes an insane amount of KFC and McDonald’s.

At the White House, Trump’s go-to meal is meatloaf, which he loves. Chris Christie learned about it the hard way when Trump forced him to eat it for no apparent reason.
In a sad side note to this story, let’s focus briefly on the other comment the waiter made. Trump remarked that Saturday Night Live was probably being filmed at that exact moment and speculated about what they would be saying about him. The fact that he is consumed by rage of SNL isn’t surprising, but this was said at approximately 8:45 pm. Trump thinks Saturday Night LIVE is pre-recorded at 8:45. Trump is a moron.
