It’s no secret that a few of us here at RedState do not appreciate how Donald Trump has co-opted the conservative movement for his own ambitions. His many faults are detailed in several posts here, and all over the Internet. However, there is one thing that I was not expecting from Trump, and it’s a huge game changer.
Donald J. Trump orders his steaks well done. You may begin rioting as you see fit.
#Trump came into the steak restaurant I was in. He ordered a well done rib-eye steak. Well done?!

This is unacceptable behavior for someone who wants to be the President of the United States of America. It is simply appalling that a man who wants to be our leader makes such terrible personal decisions in his every day life. How do you justify this, Trump supporters? How do you stand by a man who does this?
Luckily for those of us who are true Americans and order steaks no more cooked than (maybe) medium, there is true justice in this world. Anthony Bourdain explained why well-done steaks actually have economic value in his book, Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly.
‘Saving for well-done’ is a time-honored tradition dating back to cuisine’s earliest days. … What happens when the chef finds a tough, slightly skanky end-cut of sirloin that’s been pushed repeatedly to the back of the pile? He can throw it out, but that’s a total loss. He can feed it to the family, which is the same as throwing it out. Or he can ‘save for well-done’—serve it to some rube who prefers his meat or fish incinerated into a flavorless, leathery hunk of carbon, who won’t be able to tell if what he’s eating is food or flotsam. Ordinarily, a proud chef would hate this customer, hold him in contempt for destroying his fine food. But not in this case. The dumb bastard is paying for the privilege of eating his garbage! What’s not to like?
Justice though it may be, this is the most unacceptable behavior Donald Trump has shown on the campaign trail yet, and he is simply unqualified to be our leader. Take a stand, conservatives, and get rid of this fraud from our primary.
*It is also entirely possible that the very same “flavorless, leathery hunk of carbon” and “flotsam” Bourdain refers to could be Trump Steaks, which are further detailed over at TrumpFailures.com.
