Just read that Corey Lewandowski has shared in his new book the POTUS's favorite McDonalds order.

Trump orders 2 Big Macs, 2 Fish Filets sandwiches, and a chocolate shake. You think he is skipping the fries to keep it healthy? Order totals nearly 2500 calories.


I'm wimpy at McDonalds. My order is 6 piece chicken mcnuggets with sweet and sour, small fries and small diet coke. Try not to visit often. Actually prefer Burger King.

I noticed the word "food" comes up exactly nowhere in your OP or title whatsoever... well done.

Nobody could eat that much all by himself. Fake.

I don't touch it these days, but as a kid, I'd get: (1) Super-sized Bic Mac Meal, (2) Extra Big Mac.

Or Wendy's: the spicy/crispy fried chicken sandwich meal + an extra sandwich.

Or, Subway: one foot-long, one 6".

It can be eaten. The size of him confirms it.

Hey yes. I guess I don't usually associate McDonalds with sustenance or food. Just a quick drive by diversion.

Do you have a favorite order or are you immune to the national indulgence?

I cannot eat at McDonalds. I have tried. Every time I get sick. Wendys is fine. McDonalds must use the preservative that I am allergic to

Not good getting sick!! Also don't think this is uncommon. It would take an iron belly to handle a presidential order.

A recipe for blocked arteries, hypertension, obesity, and perhaps diabetes. 2,500 calories is more than what an active 72 yr old male should consume in a whole day. Fast food compounds the problem.

People who eat to much in general eat even more under stress. I can't think of a more stressful job that POTUS.

Michelle's garden looks better day by day, right? Unfortunately no going back.

But this fast food/indulgence and/or addiction that we Americans share is something to think about. If you are addiction free I admire that...please share how you broke free. If not, please share your McDonald's order. It's just for fun.

Never eat anything but breakfast at MickeyD's........and even breakfast rarely.
That Sausage McMuffin with egg is a fat and protein blast---450 calories.
If I get 2 of them, I don't eat again 'til dinner.
Occassionally, because of guilt, I'll order the Egg McMuffin, almost as much protein, but only---ha-ha---300 calories.

I think he skips the fries because they were ruined in the 90's.

I have never had breakfast at MickeyD's. But I can see how the convenience on the way to work, etc. is the reason many do. Glad they have to publish their nutritional info.

Oh, was that the trans fat issue that ruined them? Trying to recall here.

They were ruined because of a lawsuit over them using beef fat to flavor the fries, which led them to just use vegetable oil. They got sued for using beef fat and not disclosing it, and they were what made their fried amazing.

Thanks for the refresher....Yeah beef fat! (Just kidding) Hmmm, come to think of it, McDonald's fries taste like nothing. This thread is well on it's way to kicking my little habit.
