WASHINGTON, D.C. — Presidential transitions take time, and as such, it can be months into a new administration when the public is made aware of something the last one did, or in some case did not, do. One such incident was just reported by several outlets.
Reportedly, the Donald Trump presidential administration left a rather large, unpaid tab for the McDonald’s closest to the White House back in January. Over the course of his four-year residence in D.C., Mr. Trump apparently racked up over a million dollars in Big Macs, what he calls “Chicky McNuggers” because it’s so close to one of his favorite words he no longer can say in public, and milkshakes. The former president apparently worked out a deal with the franchise owner, who agreed to front the costs of whatever Trump ordered, and the former president would make the restaurant whole when his term was up.
“I’m not sure if he really was convinced he’d be in office another term, and would get another four years to pay us back,” Michael Shaw, the franchise owner in question, told The D.C. Hill Examiner. “Regardless, by the time he and his team left town and I added up all the berders, McNuggets, and shakes, he owed us a little over a million bucks.”
Shaw said that during the four years of Trump’s presidency, he noticed that the commander in chief was ordering an “absolute pant load” of food from his restaurant, he just didn’t realize how much.
“Mind you, for him a pant load is four times as much as a normal pant load, but still,” Shaw explained, “it really never hit me how much food he was ordering for himself until I hit the equal sign on the calculator. Holy shit. I mean…just…holy shit.”
Mr. Shaw is hopeful that someone will clear the unpaid tab, but he’s not too sure sure that someone will be the person who ran up the bill.
“I don’t know, it’s been like six weeks since I emailed the bill to Mar-A-Lago care of David Dennison,” Shaw said, “and they haven’t gotten back to me. I’m not worried though. I mean, what kind of billionaire, who totally really has, like, billions of dollars, would stiff an honest businessman out of money he owes them? I’ll get paid soon, right? Right?”
