Donald Trump likes his steak cooked to a crisp.
"It would rock on the plate, it was so well done," Anthony Senecal, Trump's long-time butler, told The New York Times.
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 ...
Let's forget about taste for a minute and talk about health. Eating over-cooked meat can mess with your memory. A 2014 study from New York’s Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai found that consuming a lot of glycotoxins, which are found in excess in well-done meat, raises a person's risk for age-related dementia.
To rub a little more salt in the wound, a separate study revealed that men who eat a lot of ground beef and other red meat -- particularly if the meat is well-done -- are at higher risk for aggressive prostate cancer. Trump is basically making himself sick.
Finally, remember that Trump sold his own steaks, "Trump Steaks," at Sharper Image in 2007.
And he believed the above would be a good way to market said steaks.
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?
Remember: We are what we eat.
