Here we have a prime example of Crybaby Liberals who will do anything to impugn the man who is now president-elect. The sad thing is that Trump has impugned himself so many times with his own behavior that we really don’t need to examine his tastes in steak. But behold the effluence of PuffHo (click on screenshot to go to the piece), from a piece published in March:
And we’re told that we’re supposed to hate Trump for this:
You may hate him for his lies or for his racism, but now you can hate him for how he takes his filet mignon. It’s almost as if he’s threatened by any possible life remaining in the meat. Trump wants everything he eats to be really, really, really dead.
Trump’s steak preference is considered offensive by most people who have an ounce of appreciation for food.
It’s one of the biggest crimes a person can commit while dining out. Steaks ordered “well-done” have been known to crinkle the noses of talented chefs.
“WHY! Why don’t you just eat a burger!“, is what Peter D’Antonio, the executive chef of The Westin Waltham-Boston wishes he could say to those who order steaks like Trump. The Daily Meal goes as far to say that anyone who like their steaks well-done is a “bad person.” In Trump’s case …
. . . .When you cast your vote for president this year, think about how the candidates interact with the world on a more intimate level. What would they do if they saw a stray dog on the side of the road? Would they be willing to let someone else take the last spot in the elevator, and wait for the next? How would they navigate a menu at a nice meal out?
This is the kind of over-the-top demonization that should embarrass all of us. The stray dog/elevator/steak analogy at the end is simply asinine. I happen to believe that a rare steak tastes better, but tastes differ, and I’d never try to say that anybody who wanted a well done steak (like my Dad used to, for instance) was a bad person.
At the end of this article, which appeared in the “Taste” section of PuffHo (the food section), we find the usual editor’s note appended to every PuffHo piece on Trump (it was clearly added after he was nominated). I’ve added the final bit.
Editor’s note: Donald Trump is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist, birther and bully who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S. And, he eats his steak in the worst possible way: well done!!!! That makes him even more of a bad person.
