There are many delicious accompaniments to eat with a steak — asparagus, butter, even caviar— but no surprise, President Donald Trump does not eat his steak with any of those things. Instead, our President eats his aged, expensive steak like any real, red-blooded American does: with ketchup.
A reporter from the Independent Journal Review did the hard task of finding this out when he ate a meal at the BLT Steakhouse in Trump’s DC Hotel at the same time the President himself stopped by for dinner.
Trump did a lot of very Trump-like things at this dinner — took some selfies, defended his decision not to attend the White House Correspondent’s Dinner, told a woman she had great skin and tipped a Latino busboy $100 — but the best part of the story is what meal our President chose to eat. According to an anonymous waiter:
“The President ordered a well-done steak. An aged New York strip. He ate it with catsup as he always does. The sides and appetizers on the table were shared. Three jumbo shrimp cocktails were delivered before the meal. At one point, the President looked at his watch and remarked ”They are filming ‘Saturday Night Live’ right now. Can’t wait to see what they are gonna do to me this week.“ It was hard to serve him because he is so funny and relaxed, it makes you laugh.”
