Trump just denied 'angrily' eating a 'hamburger & diet coke' in his bedroom in Sunday rant
President Donald Trump had another meltdown on Sunday after reading a New York Times article, a publication he refers to as 'fake news.'
"The people that know me and know the history of our country say that I am the hardest working President in history. I don’t know about that, but I am a hard worker and have probably gotten more done in the first 3 1/2 years than any President in history. The Fake News hates it!"
He went on further implying that he's the hardest working because he hasn't left the White House during a pandemic when barely anyone leaves their house. He also mentioned something about a hamburger and a soda drink.
"I work from early in the morning until late at night, haven’t left the White House in many months (except to launch Hospital Ship Comfort) in order to take care of Trade Deals, Military Rebuilding etc., and then I read a phony story in the failing NY Times about my work........schedule and eating habits, written by a third rate reporter who knows nothing about me. I will often be in the Oval Office late into the night & read & see that I am angrily eating a hamburger & Diet Coke in my bedroom. People with me are always stunned. Anything to demean!"
Trump is most likely referring to this article released by the Times, which states that his work ethic is less than ideal.
“President Trump arrives in the Oval Office these days as late as noon, when he is usually in a sour mood after his morning marathon of television. He has been up in the White House master bedroom as early as 5 a.m. watching Fox News, then CNN, with a dollop of MSNBC thrown in for rage viewing.”
The article also talked about how obsessive Trump is about watching press coverage of his public announcements on the coronavirus. It didn't say anything about hamburgers but they did mention fries!
“After he is done watching the end of the daily White House briefing — which is held seven days a week and sometimes goes as late as 8 p.m. — Mr. Trump watches television in his private dining room off the Oval Office. Assorted aides who are still around will join him to rehash the day and offer their assessments on the briefings. Comfort food — including French fries and Diet Coke — is readily available.”
