The night was a wild one. Here is what happens when President Trump goes to dinner.


Inside Trump's Secret Dinner: A Side of the President You Don't Ever See Inside the restaurant, I was seated at a table which I had booked hours earlier, directly next to where Trump would be dining. I made the booking based on a tip from a trusted source.

8:45 PM: Trump is served his entree. According to a waiter, who wished to remain anonymous:

“The President ordered a well-done steak. An aged New York strip. He ate it with catsup as he always does. The sides and appetizers on the table were shared. Three jumbo shrimp cocktails were delivered before the meal. At one point, the President looked at his watch and remarked ”They are filming 'Saturday Night Live' right now. Can't wait to see what they are gonna do to me this week.“ It was hard to serve him because he is so funny and relaxed, it makes you laugh.

Trump talks jovially with his guests for the next two hours. His iconic hand motions fill the space as dinner is served....

10:14 PM: Trump and his party get up to leave. The president is stopped momentarily for selfies and handshakes. Discretely, Trump can be seen handing cash to one of the latino busboys for his table. The president handed the young man a $100 bill.

100 bucks because Pr. Trump is a classy guy.

But, I take issue with catsup on a staeak, and well done. Come on. Rare with Worcestershire sauce man.

If that steak had been a 24 oz Porterhouse with Montreal rub, medium well, none of that other malarkey is needed.

I do however have a 3 decade record of legendary 80/20 grill burgers that get a stout sprinkling of worcester before hand. People have actually pulled in off the road to ask what is that unbelieveable aroma. More than once.

So, by proxy, Trump bought a c-note worth of meth and a bowl of tortilla soup last night.

BTW, that NY strip was 16oz and cost $54.
The porterhouse I mentioned is actually 36oz and costs $102. Both are dry aged for 28 days. I'd prolly take at least half that porter home and rip it a new one the next day - warmed up on that grill of course.

If you think I'm hogswitchin', go see for yourself:

Glad to see I am not the only one confident enough to enjoy ketchup on my steak. Medium rare, guy myself but hey - free speech and free steak style, go together.

Glad I am not the only one with the slow browser that gets caught in the multiple post thing, ghost...heh

PS If this is RT, Sunday- Oscars nite, its another subtle slam at the Hollyweirdos...

You dont matter, and SHUTUP and sing...

If the steak is rare enough to taste the iron in the hemoglobin, catsup or sauce isn't really necessary. Worcestershire sauce is awfully good, by my word.

Who cares how he eats his steak? That's why they make vanilla and chocolate.

As an old jack Mormon put it, "Otherwise we'd all be drivin Chevrolets and shootin Winchesters."

Anyone else think this President would be a far more interesting dining companion than any of the Political Clown Factory we've been subjected to for decades,particularly the last 8 years?? No faux,nor fey,food at that table.

Yeah Nori. The Clintons would have choreographed it, push-polled it, and focus-grouped it before sitting down to eat. The only thing they wouldn't have done is check whether their guests would eat what was being served.

The Criminals would have charged everybody at the table $10,000.00.

The mexican busboy would have had to pay them $100.

Bill H: "The only thing they wouldn't have done is check whether their guests would eat what was being served."
I don't think the Clintons would pick up the check, either.

This man couldn't be more different than the egotistic boy we have spent eight years suffering through.
A big heart versus a shriveled soul.
A life lived by embracing, enriching others versus narcissism.
Making deals versus making putts. (and by all accounts, after all that golf, Obama was never that good).
Winner versus Loser.
A President that is his own man versus a hired boy.

This gets to the core of what the political establishment don't understand.

Everything they do is researched and choreographed (and the reason they still fuck up so often is that the pollsters and choreographers are political filth in the same bubble as their whoremasters)
Trump, for all the perceived faux pas is genuine.

Long may they continue to not get it, otherwise we'll be awash in a sea of fake sincerity.

That 100 bucks. Bet the guy frames it. Never to be spent.

Message to President Trump. Get the waiter another 100 bucks is small change so he can spend it.

Trump probably doesn't bother with bills smaller than a Ben Franklin.

Snake - Most billionaires don't seem to carry money at all, and have lackeys to pay, have it put on the bill or whatever. The fact Trump carries money at all tells me a lot.
