Is the president obligated to eat a healthy diet?
A new book by former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and aid David Bossie describes Donald Trump's disturbing eating habits on the campaign trail. Trump's regular McDonald's order was a 2,400-calorie meal consisting of "two Big Macs, two Filet-O-Fish, and a chocolate malted,” doubling the American Heart Association's recommended sodium intake.
A dinner of that size would offer caloric energy for a full day. The 3,400 milligrams of sodium more than doubles the American Heart Association’s recommendation of 1,500 milligrams per day. The meal provides almost no fiber—and also offers more white bread than anyone would do well to eat in a week. This is all ominous for the president’s cardiovascular system.
Trump Force One was reportedly full of junk food like "Vienna Fingers, potato chips, pretzels, and many packages of Oreos." Even Ivanka Trump has urged her father to take better care of himself.
“On Trump Force One there were four major food groups: McDonald’s, Kentucky Fried Chicken, pizza, and Diet Coke.”
Ivanka Trump said in a 2015 interview with Barbara Walters, “I wish he would eat healthier and maybe slow down. Sometimes I tell him, like, ‘Oh, you have to, you know, slow down.’ But it’s the only speed he knows ...”
But others have found the reporting to be absurd. Trump's diet shouldn't be up for debate, and clearly it hasn't slowed him down thus far.
Lib media continues to descend into irrelevancy as they nitpick over how much diet coke @realDonaldTrump drinks and how much TV he watches. Thanks NY Times for that game changing report. Would not have wanted to be on the outside of THAT unimportant stuff. https://t.co/co4OpG3sfS
