What size are Donald Trump’s? Bigger.

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.

These photos show how much bigger Trump’s White House salt and pepper shakers usually are than everyone else’s, and how they compare to those of Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.

    Thank God we’ve got a whole pack of hyper-alert news hounds ready to pick up on the really important issues affecting Americans. We need to understand how this pervasive inequality is affecting relations within the Cabinet and abroad, with our international partners. And I am just guessing, it’s White Peppercorns in those shakers. Black Peppercorns Matter!

    Quite clearly an impeachable offense.

    Another reason to ignore CBS News. In this case, they are focusing on irrelevancies and minutia. Of course, the main reason is that they lie, just like the rest of CNNNBCABCNPR.

    This, along with the two scoops of ice cream, is a reminder to the people at the table that he is the one in charge. In his memoirs Ronald Reagan wrote that the trouble with Al Haig, his Secretary of State, was that Haig kept forgetting who was the president. I suspect that is what happened with Tillerson, Mattis, and other ex officials in the Trump administration.

    Larger salt and pepper shakers are a subtle way of saying, “Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!”

    Trump’s shakers are of normal size. The treasonous orange man is cleverly diminishing the shakers of others.

    Is Trump now just entertaining himself by finding new ways to f*** with the press? It’s obvious to anyone whose brain isn’t being eaten away by TDS that he’s had them dancing to his tune for years. Now he’s just rubbing it in.

    When ya got BIG ideas, a BIG history, a BIG wallet, it stands to reason you’d have BIG everything, especially your salt and pepper shakers.

    The, ahem, “journalist” that put this together has a small brain, teeny aspirations, microdot accomplishments, and gets his salt from massive injection of soy sauce.

    I suspect DJT is patiently waiting for some Fool to ask about the Shaker Size Scandal, so he can sucker punch him/her/it with the prepared response: “Of course my pair is bigger than yours.” But only a Fool wouldn’t see that one coming a mile away.

    Are they Russian salt and pepper shakers?

  • Ray Van Dune December 8, 2019, 7:45 PM

    Niki Haley is clearly checking out the size of Trump’s pair, but he seems not to notice hers. Sad.

    When the history of media collapse into irrelevancy is written, please feel free to cite articles such as this as to the reason why.

    I bet THAT will be the final reason for his impeachment after all the other BOGUS reasons are dismissed! He DESERVES to be kicked out of office and publicly shamed for his condiments – I bet he COLLUDED with the Chef! If he continues to reduce our dependence on FOREIGN sources while building the greatest economy ever seen on the face of the earth (if we’re not already), continues to make us a safer country, ends our SENSELESS wars, and DRAINS the SWAMP I don’t care WHAT SIZE his salt and pepper shakers are! Actually, I don’t care NOW!

    That’s some real fine journalisming there.
