Donald Trump draws the wrath of Twitter by eating KFC with a knife and fork
Twitter really went to work overnight after Donald Trump posted a photo of himself eating KFC fried chicken with a knife and fork. If he was trying to connect with regular folks by eating an All-American fast food meal, social media responded by letting the Republican nominee know, "you're doing that wrong."

Let's suspend disbelief that a billionaire is eating chicken from a bucket on a private jet, and focus on what Twitter really took issue with, the utensils.

Eating KFC with a fork and knife is like eating a candy bar with chopsticks https://t.co/sv3IPMGkgj— Bobby Big Wheel (@BobbyBigWheel) August 2, 2016

It's not the first time that Trump's fast food choices have gotten people going. There was that time he said he loves the mysterious "fish delight" at McDonald's, but it was Trump's use of a knife and fork to eat pizza that inspired fellow New Yorker Jon Stewart to create one of the most passionate Daily Show segments of all time.
