People Are Sharing Pictures Of Bad Food After Trump's Restaurant Was Criticized

Food fight!

Posted on

People on Twitter are trolling Trump after a reporter called the food at his eponymous Trump Grill terrible, and the restaurant itself the "worst" in the country.

Along with criticizing the decor, she also writes that the food and drinks at the ~grill~ are just plain unappetizing.

Right-wing Trump Grill defenders will soon insist it's not a Bloody Mary, but a Manhattan clam chowder after the jo… https://t.co/jDedcAfs8u

For example, this is how she described a cheeseburger served to her and her dining companions:

Renowned butcher Pat LaFrieda once dared me to eat an eyeball that he himself popped out of the skull of a roasted pig. That eyeball tasted better than the Trump Grill’s (Grille’s) Gold Label Burger, a Pat LaFrieda–branded short-rib burger blend molded into a sad little meat thing, sitting in the center of a massive, rapidly staling brioche bun, hiding its shame under a slice of melted orange cheese. It came with overcooked woody batons called “fries”—how can someone mess up fries?—and ketchup masquerading as Heinz. If the cheeseburger is a quintessential part of America’s identity, Trump’s pledge to “make America great again” suddenly appeared not very promising. (Presumably, Trump’s Great America tastes like an M.S.G.-flavored kitchen sponge lodged between two other sponges.)

Nguyen's review of the restaurant so enraged the president-elect that he angrily tweeted against Vanity Fair.

Has anyone looked at the really poor numbers of @VanityFair Magazine. Way down, big trouble, dead! Graydon Carter, no talent, will be out!

"Has anyone looked at the really poor numbers of @VanityFair Magazine. Way down, big trouble, dead! Graydon Carter, no talent, will be out!" he wrote on Thursday, referring to the magazine's editor.

The magazine tweeted a cheeky response back.

Is this the story that set @realdonaldtrump off this morning? https://t.co/Vnb9cvUmSh

Pretty soon, people on Twitter were trolling Trump over the bad review and his freakout over it.

Read this review of Trump Grill and hollered out loud. Hilarious. Thanks Vanity Fair! ☺️☺️☺️😂😂☺️😄 https://t.co/6V3nG9ex0j

Some, like journalist Olivia Nuzzi, tweeted other questionable items they had been served at da grill.

The man next to me at Trump Grill ordered a vodka martini and this is how it came out.

But others tried to imagine what other kind of "bad food" they serve there.

Wow, the Trump Grill really does suck. I ordered the lasagna and this is what I get? #WTF #TrumpGrill

Some got pretty creative.

OMG, you guys, the guy next to me at the Trump Grill ordered a Rum and Coke, and THIS is what he got.

Basically, people took the worst photo pictures ever and attributed them to the Trump grill.

I ordered a chicken sandwich at Trump Grill and it was completely raw on the inside

And some weren't even food at all.

Other people wondered if their amateur cooking skills were good enough to make it at the grill.
