Trump’s salt and pepper shakers tower over everyone else’s

Trump’s salt and pepper shakers tower over everyone else’s. Obama, Bush, and Clinton used the same size shakers as their guests.

I kid you not. This is the headline from no less than

Business Insider

  • When he’s having working lunches or dinners at the White House, President Donald Trump often wields salt and pepper shakers almost twice the size of everyone else’s.
  • This could be another one of his power moves, alongside his fierce handshakes and bulky suits.
  • Photos show Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama using the same size shakers as their White House guests, while Trump’s usually tower over others.

President Donald Trump displays his power with firm handshakes, a second scoop of ice cream, and towering salt and pepper shakers.

Mark Knoller, CBS News’ White House correspondent, pointed out how much bigger Trump’s shakers were in a tweet on Thursday.

Insider combed the photo archives and found that Trump more often than not gets much larger salt and pepper shakers than other foreign leaders or American politicians when dining at the White House. And we couldn’t find instances of Trump’s most recent predecessors using larger shakers than those of their guests.

The large shakers might just be because he enjoys salty foods like KFC chicken, Big Macs, and bacon and eggs. But it could also be another power move, alongside his fierce handshakes and bulky suits.

My hunch is that it is a security purpose thus no one can switch out his shakers and poison him. But what the heck let the media make fools of themselves.

That my dear readers tells us that all is not well in the swamp.

For the best in conservative news push the button.

    Okay, they have officially gone insane! I thought it was bad when they complained about him getting more ice cream than anyone else but this takes the cake!

    I’ve heard of petty BS, but this takes the cake – or should I say takes the seasoning? Jeez!

    It’s probably only a coincidence, but I’ll bet Trump’s Harley is bigger than everyone else’s too.

    You know, one other thing that I have not seen from the press (that I have fully expected, since it always happens) is to have the press blame the Republicans for the impending budget crisis. Surely they will overlook the fact that it is the Democrats who have ignored the budget as they drive toward impeachment.

    The only reason I bring up the yet-to-materialize IG report is that surely that must be the reason our main stream media is obsessing over salt and pepper shakers.

    Wasn’t an IG report due out today? Is the main stream media ignoring it just like they ignored the 8 people indicted by Barr for funneling foreign money to Democrats?

    WOW, talk about important! And an extra scoop of ice cream? I guess I”M on a power play, too!
    Also, how’s about maybe the butlers have differing sizes of S&P shakers…? Imagine the caption if Tillerson had got the taller ones!? Ooooh, I’d love to see the headline;
    “Trump fires Tillerson for using bigger S&P shakers”
    “Trump reaches over to Tillerson’s ice cream and scoops the extra scoop he got into HIS bowl”

    Oh but the MSM had no problem with Mooch devouring KFC out of a bucket twice the size of a normal size bucket. But then this cow is twice the size of most women her age so take that to the bank.
