Trump doctor hid cauliflower in mashed potatoes to improve diet: report

Source: The Hill

President Trump’s former doctor reportedly hid cauliflower in his mashed potatoes in an attempt to improve the president’s diet.

Former White House physician Ronny Jackson told The New York Times that he regretted leaving his position before he could implement the diet and exercise regimen planned for Trump.

“The exercise stuff never took off as much as I wanted it to,” he said. “But we were working on his diet. We were making the ice cream less accessible, we were putting cauliflower into the mashed potatoes.”

Jackson announced in an early 2018 press conference that he intended to help the president lose 10 to 15 pounds and transport an exercise bike or elliptical machine into the White House, according to the Times.

I'd hate to be the one who told him that ice cream was not available!

2. I'd rather be extra butter, maybe a spoonful or two of some pure lard.

Then deep fry and cover in cheese. Then he needs to finish with some foods from the whipped group and chocotastic groups.

12. Why yes

I did go there. I was delivering a pizza and they gave me this dandy certificate instead of a tip. I had to get my own frame though and I got one on the going-out-of-business sale at my local Toys-R-Us. I keep it hanging in my garage.....er....I mean waiting room. Right next to my mail order certificate that makes me a minister.....or something or other. I keep my "practice" straightforward though and the signs are clearly posted that say "No insurance accepted, no checks, no credit cards" and "Cash Payment in Advance".

33. Mashed cauliflower is actually great.

I know people who can make it and actually fool people into thinking it's real potatoes. The trick is steaming the cauliflower well and then making sure it's bone dry before mashing so there is as little water as possible in the mix.

You can even do half potato - half cauliflower to cut down the carbs.

I love that they were plotting to fool I45 into eating healthier!

therefore, they aren't particularly low carb.

Cauliflower pizza:

https://www.target.com/p/caulipower-frozen-pizza-margherita-10-9oz/-/A-54017673

49g carbs, 3g fiber.

Might as well eat a bowl of pasta.

Veggie carrot goldfish have the same carbs as the regular ones, but adds a whopping gram of fiber.

54. Yeah, I was disappointed when I read the info.

However, I do notice broccoli is *pulverized* into a paste in a pressure cooker any longer than 2 minutes or so. I may try to do a combined broccoli/cauliflower mash sometime!

I found out the hard way [bleeding], working on web site that night, that my lunch meatloaf was cut with tater flakes or left over mashed.

13. In no way would hiding one veggie improve the overall diet of someone...rump is a lazy a&& who...

would call someone else in to lose the 15 pounds he needed to lose, instead of him actually losing it.

He going to drop dead from something eventually because he won't listen to anybody and before you know it, he's gone. All solely because of his and no one else's actions. You do reap what you sow...

30. Let's make Trump exercise in front of a bunch of reporters . . .

just like Trump did to Miss Universe winner Alicia Machado. This is from a Daily Beast article:

“When Alicia Machado of Venezuela was named Miss Universe nine months ago, no one could accuse her of being the size of the universe,” the 1997 CNN report reads. “But as her universe expanded, so did she, putting on nearly 60 pounds.” (Years later, Machado would say she actually gained closer to just 15.)

It was then that Trump had invited what CNN called a “rowdy pool of reporters” to an exclusive gym to look on and snap photos as he trotted out the beauty queen to exercise in front of the cameras. Trump had her do sit-ups, ride a stationary bike, and jump rope for the crowd of photographers.

In recounting the gym incident to the New York Times, Machado said that “I was about to cry in that moment with all the cameras there. I said, ‘I don’t want to do this, Mr. Trump.’ He said, ‘I don’t care.’”

34. No wonder Trump is paranoid about being poisoned. Personally, I like cauliflower well enough,

but guys like Trump won't touch that, broccoli, or any of that good for you stuff.

A buddy of mine that eats like that says his parents forced him to eat everything he didn't like. He's kind of still like a snotty little kid about a few things. So it's like, I'm a grownup now and don't have to eat anything I don't like. Of course that's everyone's right, but he missed out on learning to like a lot of things because of all that.

I wonder if Trump had a nanny that did that to him. He probably had her tortured and executed when he was in junior high.
