It appears some in the left-wing propaganda mill media have a developed an exciting and strange new obsession with Donald Trump’s love of McDonald's cheeseburgers. We’re not sure why.

Amid a contentious statewide election, a mass shooting, Trump traveling to South Korea under an impending nuclear threat to the north, and that Clinton Foundation uranium scandal the media still won’t touch with a 10-foot pole, POLITICO, The Hill and the Boston Globe all found time to publish in-depth reports on the 45th president’s habitual hankering for quarter-pounders.


POLITICO's Ryan Reilly may've unearthed the scandal of the decade when he discovered that not only are Trump's people making midday Mickey D's runs for the president -- they aren't even going to the closest one.


The New York Times’ Kenneth Vogel retweeted POLITICO’s piece, highlighting the juicy detail that Trump likes lots of ketchup, but apparently isn’t a big fan of pickles.


The responses these “stories” got were predictably hilarious.


There you have it, folks. The president likes dollar cheeseburgers and fried apple pies.
