President Trump has made no secret of his love of fast food. Despite a former Trump aide recently confessing that he made up rumors about New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) being sent to fetch Big Macs for Trump on the campaign trail, it's telling that the story, at least, seemed plausible.

"The Big Macs are great," Trump raved at a CNN townhall in 2016. "The Quarter Pounder. It's great stuff." Separately, he explained to The New York Times that his love of fast food is linked to his obsession with cleanliness. "One bad hamburger, you can destroy McDonald's," he said. "One bad hamburger, you take Wendy's and all these other places and they're out of business."
