Truly damning footage has surfaced about Florida Governor and potential presidential candidate Ron DeSantis, who allegedly once swallowed a chocolate pudding with his hand. According to two sources in the daily beast, DeSantis ate his dessert by scooping it with three fingers during a flight on a private plane in 2019. “He sat in meetings and ate in front of people,” said a former DeSantis employee the daily beast“always like a starving animal that has never eaten … got shit everywhere.”

new York The magazine called it the controversy that “will end his bid for 2024.” But to be honest? Politicians have been outed for weirder and coarser eating habits. Here are some of the most important incidents in recent history, sorted by:

5. Nancy Pelosi eats hot dogs every day

Nancy Pelosi spent more than 35 years in Congress, but kind of us only recently learned that the former speaker of the House of Representatives eats a hot dog with mustard and relish every day. And that’s not all: Pelosi apparently also regularly eats chocolate ice cream for breakfast. As a reporter for insider, who attempted to mimic her diet, accurately noted that she was “following the diet of a wealthy toddler without parental supervision.” It’s all really over the top, but at least the hot dogs and chocolate ice cream are objectively delicious. We have to give some props to an octogenarian who can get away with such a diet and still wear a skinny pants suit.

4. John Kasich eats pizza with a knife and fork

In 2016, the then-governor and presidential candidate was mocked for eating a New York slice with a knife and fork. (He’s far from the only politician to make this classic faux pas: Bill De Blasio and Donald Trump are among the culprits.) Kasich tried to calm the outrage during an appearance Late Night with Seth Meyers, where he explained, “It was so hot, and I made a terrible mistake: I picked up a fork.” Excuses Excuses.

3. Donald Trump’s ketchup habit

The only thing more sacrilegious for foodies than forgetting a perfect steak is to pair it with ketchup, as the former president is said to have done. Sources who served the former president told it Washingtonians that these accusations may have been exaggerated and that the ketchup was actually for his fries.

Still, there are plenty of other crazy ketchup stories related to Trump. For example, Trump’s hotel employees were given oddly specific instructions to give Trump mini glass bottles of Heinz and make sure he could hear the seal “pop.” And, of course, there’s the indelible image shared by Cassidy Hutchison, an assistant to former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. As she testified before Congress, Trump was so angry with then-Attorney General Bill Barr that he threw his lunch, smashed a china plate and dripped ketchup on the wall.

2. Mark Warner’s Microwave Tuna Meltdown

In the early days of the pandemic, the Virginia senator posted an Instagram video of himself making his “specialty”: a tuna melt. He starts with a really obscene amount of mayonnaise, tosses on some canned tuna and slices of cheddar, and then…no no no– Microwave the whole thing. However, as it turned out, creating a creepy viral video was just the ticket. The “cooking” tutorial actually appears to have been a cleverly disguised commercial for proper hand washing. Quiet, he actually ate it.

1. Amy Klobuchar eats lettuce with a comb

I’m sorry, but nothing will ever top this one. As a 2019 story from the New York Times A staffer reportedly got a salad for the senator as they prepared to fly to South Carolina in 2008. However, paraphernalia were missing and none were present on the plane. According to four (!!!) people familiar with the incident, Klobuchar is said to have verbally abused the helper, then (taking a deep breath) took a comb out of her pocket and ate the salad with it. Then she instructed a staff member to clean it.
