If it’s true that “you are what you eat,” is it also true that you vote like you eat?
In the case of Trump vs. Clinton, they both have clear food preferences. Like Obama, Clinton seems to be the foodiest of the two, preferring culinary darlings and superstar chefs, whereas Trump seems to prefer his food less fussy (and often “to go”). Which style mirrors yours? Let’s find out.
If you like your steaks and you like them well done, you and Trump have something in common.
Italian? You’re a lot like Hillary. According to Zagat, Rao’s in NYC is one of her favorite spots to dine. Unlike Hillary, you probably won’t be able to get a table at this VIP-exclusive restaurant.
Mystery fast-food items can’t be overlooked, and they appear to be among Trump’s favorite grub. In a memorable food moment earlier this year, while trying to be an “everyman,” Don told Anderson Cooper that
he never when he goes to McDonald’s he orders the Fish Delight. Whatever that is. He then quickly changed the subject to cleanliness (“I’m a very clean person.” LOL what?) In Don’s defense, Fish Delight sounds ubiquitous enough. A generic “Fish Sandwich’ probably would have been better, but, you know, pick your battles and all that.
KFC. “Not the worst thing in the world,” says Trump to Anderson Cooper. It’s not a glowing endorsement, but maybe that’s why he uses a knife and fork to eat it: to make it seem way sexier. Fried chicken is a favorite of Hillary’s, too. She forgoes the fast-food version for one of her favorite restaurants in New York, Red Rooster in Harlem, where fried chicken is their specialty.
When you go out to eat, do you target places where all the rich kids hang out? If so, you have a good chance of running into Trump during a power lunch. The guy loves to bee seen. He just can’t help himself. The Ivy and Jean-Georges are two of his frequent haunts.
You get off on a spicy kick now and then? Zagat says you’re a Hillary. It’s no secret Clinton loves hot sauce and peppers. During a Town Hall discussion hosted by Good Morning America, she said of her addiction, “I started using hot sauce back in 1992, because I read an article that said it would help my immune system stay healthy.” Zagat says Hillary frequents places like The Bombay Club in DC, “an upscale Indian spot from Ashok Bajal (who also owns Rasika, an Obama favorite). The restaurant’s green chile chicken is Clinton’s must-order.”
