We now know what likely brought Donald Trump and his running mate, Mike Pence, together: It's not their stances on trade, immigration, or Medicaid expansion, but rather a mutual love of eating Kentucky Fried Chicken aboard airplanes.

Earlier in the month, Trump tweeted his own dinner photo featuring him eating solo, knife and fork at the ready, a lone piece of KFC fried chicken on his plate and mashed potatoes and gravy still in their containers:

And just like that, the Trump/Pence ticket secured the Kentucky, chicken farmer, and white colonel votes. Catherine Garcia
