What's a good way to convince people you aren't an uptight dweeb? Maybe wear a cool jacket. Be good at sports. Have great taste in music. You know what's not a good way to convince people you aren't an uptight dweeb? Say your favorite "meat" is hot dogs. Hot. Dogs. 

There's nothing wrong with hot dogs, but they have their specific time and place. They belong in childhood and sporting events. Maybe from a street cart or at a fair. They do not, NOT, belong in a grown man's list of favorite foods. And they certainly should not be someone's favorite "meat." 

But that's how presidential candidate and sentient white button-up Mitt Romney answered the strangely phrased question. When he expanded on his answer, things didn't get all that much better.

“My second favorite meat is hamburger. And, everyone says, oh, don’t you prefer steak? It’s like, I know steaks are great, but I like hot dog best, and I like hamburger next best.”

He just sounds like a goober.

President Donald Trump has very specific taste in food. Specific, and many would claim, bad. Juvenile. Infantile. As we've all learned from the "Real Housewives" franchise, money cannot buy you taste. 

Shortly after he won the presidency, Trump visited the steakhouse in his hotel in Washington D.C. and ordered...well, we'll let Helen Rosner from Eater say it:

Independent Journal Review reporter Benny Johnson was tipped off in advance to Trump’s dinner plans, and reserved a table where he could observe the President’s order of a $54 dry-aged New York strip well-done — not to mention confirmation from an anonymous server that the leader of the free world doused the whole thing in ketchup.

Just a tough, tasteless slab of meat covered in ketchup. It feels like there may be a metaphor there, but we'll leave that up to you.
