On Monday night, Donald Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, took to Twitter to share a photo of himself eating a big bucket of KFC goodness. So far, so good, Donald.
“Great afternoon in Ohio & a great evening in Pennsylvania – departing now. See you tomorrow Virginia!” Trump tweeted.
However, from the picture it is clear that the TV star and real estate mogul was about to dig into that crispy, fried chicken with a knife and fork, much to the amusement of internet trolls.

Eating KFC fine dining style. Crap dressed as elegance. That’d be a Trump presidency. https://t.co/90omBhsWIm
