Americans on the East Coast woke up Thursday morning to the official McDonald’s Twitter account tearing into Big Mac fanatic President Donald Trump as a “disgusting excuse of a president” who also has “tiny hands.”
The tweet was briefly pinned atop the feed.
“@realDonaldTrump you are actually a disgusting excuse of a President and we would love to have @BarackObama back, also you have tiny hands,” the tweet read.
The Daily Beast’s Andrew Kirell raises the pertinent question:
It’s no secret that the president is a big fan of the Big Mac.
Trump once explained to CNN’s Anderson Cooper that he appreciates the cleanliness of McDonald’s and other fast food places from a business standpoint because “one bad burger can destroy McDonald’s.”
He also said “The Big Macs are great. [And so are the] Quarter Pounder[s] with cheese.”
The McDonald’s tweet was quickly deleted, and we can only assume that the person who sent it out has been fired — that is, if it was a McDonald’s employee.
McDonald’s implied that it was not. Maybe?
Whoever did the compromising, in using the official McDonald’s corporate Twitter account instead of the main account, the tweet reached an audience of millions less.
