No finger lickin’ here. A photo of Donald Trump eating KFC in his own special way has sent the internet into a frenzy. The Republican presidential nominee, 70, tweeted a photo of himself eating a bucket of the fast-food chain’s fried chicken on his private jet — with a fork and knife.
“Great afternoon in Ohio & a great evening in Pennsylvania — departing now. See you tomorrow Virginia,” he captioned the pic on Monday, August 1.
People on social media immediately went wild over the fact that Trump was using utensils for the finger food.
“Whatever you think about Trump, eating KFC with a knife and fork should disqualify him to be president,” one appalled tweeter wrote.
“Plate napkin plate so he doesn’t get disgusting chicken grease on the priceless mahogany jet dining table,” another Twitter user wrote of his strategic stack of plates and napkins beneath his dinner.
Some even imagined how Trump might respond to people mocking his eating habits. “Many are saying I eat KFC amazingly. They say, ‘Oh Mr. Trump we LOVE how you eat chicken!’ You’ll have to ask them..” the tweeter posted.
This isn’t the first time Trump has come under fire for his inappropriate use of a fork. Back in 2011, the former Apprentice star and Sarah Palin visited a pizzeria in NYC and the pair were photographed using utensils for their meal.
People were quick to remind him of his past foodie faux pas. “So Donald Trump, a New Yorker, has been caught eating pizza and KFC with knife and fork and yet it’s still a race,” a tweeter said.

Eating fried chicken with a knife and fork is worse than eating a candy bar with a knife and fork. https://t.co/ZqFWkxhKBw
