It was a surreal scene, an unholy union of stately opulence with trailer-trash Epicureanism.

With forefather Abraham Lincoln looking down upon him from a 19th century portrait on the wall, the man making America great again presented a mahogany dining table piled high with boxes of Quarter Pounders, Filet-O-Fishes and McNuggets stacked on polished silver trays and flanked by gold candelabra. Ornate sterling gravy boats were overflowing with dipping sauce packs, and fries had been transferred from their original containers into paper cups sporting the presidential seal.
