Donald Trump had McDonald’s hospitalized while being treated for COVID-19 in October 2020

Donald Trump’s love affair with fast food continued even while he was hospitalized with COVID-19, when the then-president ordered that McDonald’s be taken to his room at Walter Reed Hospital, according to a book by his former chief of staff.

In The Chief’s Chief, Mark Meadows writes that Trump didn’t seem to lose his sense of taste, as some COVID patients have reported, when he demanded takeout during his hospital stay in October 2020.

“They had to eat with face shields on the doctor’s prescription, which didn’t excite any of them,” Meadows writes in the book, due out Tuesday.

Donald Trump’s love of McDonald’s and fast food is well documented: According to a book by his former assistants Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie, his four “major food groups” are McDonald’s, Kentucky Fried Chicken, pizza and Diet Coke.

Trump’s love for McDonald’s and other fast food chains is well documented. According to a book by his former assistants Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie, his four “major food groups” are McDonald’s, Kentucky Fried Chicken, pizza and Diet Coke.

His typical order at McDonald’s consists of two Big Macs, two Filet-of-Fish sandwiches, and a chocolate milkshake. Though he claims to skip the sandwich when he eats fast food sandwiches, the order comes in at 2,500 calories — about a day’s worth for a man his age.

Before his presidency, Trump was featured in commercials for Pizza Hut and McDonald’s, and his fast food intake was part of his brand. The ties between Trump and fast food chains remained strong during the presidency:

There’s nothing more American than fast food. It’s the idiosyncrasy of the brand that he’s able to be on his multi-million dollar jet with the gold and black branding and colors and eat KFC at the same time,” Republican strategist Russ Schriefer said.

“It’s part of its authenticity,” Kellyanne Conway said during the 2016 presidential campaign.

“I don’t think Hilary Clinton would eat Popeyes cookies and fried chicken.”

“And what makes it all perfect is that he does it with a knife and fork while he reads the Wall Street Journal.”

The 6-foot-3 Trump weighed 239 pounds at his first presidential physical in January, just one pound below obesity, according to Bloomberg.

His doctor advised him to eat less fried foods, but Trump had set up the famous fast food tables in the White House for visiting members, including those from college championship teams..

In Michael Wolff’s Trump tell-all “Fire and Fury,” the author wrote that a fear of being poisoned and a belief that fast food joints are cleaner than non-corporate eateries play into his preference.

In October, Trump said Meadows’ book would make an “incredible Christmas present” to anyone “wanted to learn more about politics, truth [and] our great administration.’

But the former president’s tune about the book changed when revelations about Trump’s COVID-positive timeline came to light.

Meadows wrote that just three days before appearing on the debate stage with Joe Biden, Trump tested positive and then negative for the virus.

Trump quickly denied the claim.

“The story I have COVID before or during the first debate is fake news,” he said.

Meadows reportedly wrote that the positive result came from an “old model test kit” and that another COVID test was negative — the White House never released the first result and the debate continued.

“Well, the president is right, it’s fake news,” Meadows said in an interview with Newsmax on Wednesday.

“If you actually read the book, its context, that story paints a false positive.”
