The steaks, er, stakes are high in this election. Every bit of information counts.
Overcooked. With ketchup.
“He liked his meat well-done and he’d say, ‘No garbage with it,’” former Trump major domo Tony Senecal told our reporter Liz Balmaseda, who added: “By ‘garbage,’ he knew Trump meant no garnish, relishes or vegetables.”
Senecal made the same remark recently to The New York Times, telling the paper Trump’s steak “would rock on the plate, it was so well done.”
This prompted Washington Post reporters Roberto A. Ferdman and Christopher Ingraham to dig up some facts about how people prefer their meat. It appears Trump is not alone.
The paper quoted surveys showing that:
25 percent of Americans prefer steak “well” or “medium well.”
36 percent of Americans prefer hamburgers well done.
46 percent of people in Trump’s age bracket — senior citizens — like their burgers well done.
Democrats like burgers well done (43 percent) more than Republicans (32 percent).
