“I didn’t say it was in poor taste, I said it was something the poor would like to taste.”

Even the Obama’s dogs dined on better food than McDonalds and Chick-fil-A.

So much of the news coverage of President Donald Trump, his family, his administration, etc., tends to reveal more about the authors than the subjects. For example, the media’s eagerness to believe the worst about Trump doesn’t really tell us anything about Trump, but it certainly exposes the media’s bias against him.

The NYDN provides us with another example:

President Trump once more greets college athletes with fast food – this time it’s Chick-fil-A

President Trump has plied college athletes with fast food again. This time, the meal had a conservative bent.

The North Dakota State Bison celebrated their NCAA FCS championship with a trip to the White House Monday, where they were served Big Macs from McDonald’s and sandwiches from Chick-fil-A — a fast food joint with deep Christian roots. Like college football players, Chick-fil-A employees don’t work Sundays.

The Bison visit is reminiscent of when Trump hosted the Clemson Tigers in January following that team’s NCAA Division One National Championship win. They, too, were served junk food, which Trump claimed to have paid for personally. That visit occurred during the federal government shutdown when some of the White House staff had been furloughed, according to press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Trump reportedly told players he opted for a fast food spread Monday because “I know you people.”

The President is a known fan of fast food as well. He has been photographed eating French fries from a carton and chicken from a bucket aboard his private plane. He reportedly drinks a dozen diet Cokes a day, according to the New York Times.

My initial reaction, based solely on the headline, was that this is some straight-up trolling of the news media by Trump. When he did this the first time it was during the shut-down and he had a different purpose and message. He probably didn’t expect the media’s reaction either.

This time he did it to provoke the media and it looks like he got a few bites.

My second reaction to this article is that the author exudes anti-Trump bias like a fat guy with the meat sweats. He typed the whole article in Sneer font.

Then I started thinking about the whole “insult” concept. The first time this happened they forgot to tell the team what to say. When the media took off running with the insult angle, somebody eventually got around to asking the players what they thought. It turned out they thought that pigging out on Mickey D’s was great.

Then it hit me. Most administrations suck up to the media. How much you want to bet that at events like this is during previous administrations it was normal for the media to help themselves at the buffet tables right after the players? It makes sense – how many reporters would show up if there was no free food involved?

The players are student athletes who are younger than the media and come from middle or lower class households. They have not yet developed the refined palates of the elites to whom only expensive foods taste good. These immature kids actually like fast food.

The Washington Press Corpse, on the other hand, have learned to recognize and appreciate the difference between things like regular beef and Wagyu beef. They know that the flavor, aroma, appearance, and/or texture of a food dish is of no importance in comparison to the status it conveys.

Offering members of the elite foods that are intended for and associated with the hoi polloi is an insult. You’re treating them like normal people. Typically, status symbols are of most importance to those who are closest to the line – the ones who haven’t quite reached it and the ones who have it but are insecure about keeping it.

So, of course, the press corpse is upset. After 8 years of dining (for free) on epicurean delights prepared by the White House Chefs Corps for the Obamas, the media now find themselves dining on food selected by a guy who puts ketchup on a burnt steak.

Oh, the humanity!

          Remove her due to misuse of campaign funds, then turn around and impeach POTUS for same (Stormy Daniels, Cohen guilty plea).

          Dems say look at us, we are only interested in the rule of law. We police our own, this isn’t a witch hunt, this isn’t political POTUS is bound by same rules as little AOC.

          Hell, I’m cynical enough to believe maybe they had her run and win, solely to be the patsy. That would explain why Pelosi hasn’t squashed her like a bug yet, which is so unlike Nancy, cut your head off Pelosi. 🤔 You know they’ve been scheming for years now and they knew SDNY was going after the campaign and inauguration, Schumer has the complete inside track into SDNY.

    I’m off to a great start today. I woke up hungry and decided to eat a microwave tamale and a glass of milk to give me enough carbs and protein to make it to breakfast. The tamale was quite tasty. I can’t vouch for the milk.

    Due to an unfortunate incident a few months back I initiated a new “no drinks on the desk” policy. I have strictly adhered to this policy for months. Until today.

    I set my glass of milk on my desk. I sat the plate with my tamale drenched in hot sauce on my desk. I sat down. I grabbed my fork and took a bite of my tamale. Mmmmm. I reached for my milk and that’s when it happened. My wireless mouse and keyboard never knew what hit them.

    Oh, well. No use crying about it.

    Thanks to another new policy I initiated a few months ago, I now keep a spare keyboard and mouse ready at all times. I also did not wait for the spilled moo juice to dry before performing first aid on the wet mouse and keyboard. It’s too early to tell if either or both will survive.

    The good news is I’m wide awake now.

    • Somebody says:

      Haha! Murphy’s Law never fails. I hope keyboard and mouse make it and I hope the rest of your day goes smoother.

      No microwave tacos around here. I made seafood newburg for lunch (lobster, shrimp and scallops), along with sauteed spinach and honey butter carrots. Gotta feed up hubby while I can, he skips more meals than he eats when he’s in NJ…..combo of being busy, lonely and stressed.

    Obama boasts narcissistic plan to ‘train a million Baracks and Michelles’ to transform the world

    A future world seen through the eyes of former President Barack Obama may leave some dreading his vision.

    The former president spoke with a Canadian crowd Monday about his goal to create a “university for social change” while touting his Obama Foundation and its mission to “train a million Baracks and Michelles” to transform the world, the Washington Examiner reported.

    • lateblum says:

      He has been talking about this for at least 2 years. When he first proposed his “library” in Chicago, he made a point of saying the purpose was to train community organizers to do what he had. . . to be like him. That’s when I began calling his “center” the re-education center. This is one of the reasons his papers (and phone and pen) will not be housed therein.

          That was a good one. Good book, too. I think I like the “limited series” book adaptations better than turning books into movies. More time to really tell the story, and top level actors seem more willing to commit to them than to a regular TV series. Except for “Big Little Lies”. Reese Witherspoon made too many changes to that to accomodate hiring her friends and create a leading role for herself that the story got lost. But Sharp Objects, the Sinner, the Alienist, have all been good limited series.

    As to the fast foods feasts at the WH. If I recall correctly, traditionally the college and high school teams got little more than a quick walk through the WH, a short photo shoot. PT understands young people that age are always hungry and like fun food and he appears to be giving them a bit more one on one attention and making sure they will fondly remember their visit in years to come.

      Around here they’re called “DoberDoodles”. Basically, it’s a friendlier-looking dog who will still bite your ass if you try to cross its threshold. There are some deliberate cross-breeds that there’s some rationale for, but this one escapes me. Sometimes it’s to get a breed that sheds less and causes fewer allergies, which is the case for most poodle crosses. But turning a short-haired dog whose coat doesn’t need much maintenance into one that will need frequent haircuts just doesn’t make much sense. Poodles and Dobermans are both high IQ dogs so it’s not to get a smarter dog. Or a smaller dog. SMH, too!
