Donald Trump has proven once again just how far his critics and the political left will go to manufacture outrage.
Busy on the campaign trail, the Republican presidential nominee grabbed a bite from KFC and posted a picture of himself about to dine.
Great afternoon in Ohio & a great evening in Pennsylvania – departing now. See you tomorrow Virginia! pic.twitter.com/jQTQYBFpdb

The photo was enough to send his critics soaring into the stratosphere with contempt. After all, how dare fancy-pants Donald eat notoriously greasy (and delicious!) chicken with a fork. Doesn’t he know he’s supposed to wholeheartedly grab it with his bare hands and chow down like the rest of us?
Believe it or not, this had a lot of folks venting their manufactured disgust on social media.

@realDonaldTrump eating fried chicken with a knife and a fork should automatically disqualify you. ?

For those who weren’t outraged by the fork scandal, there were those who couldn’t believe Trump would stoop so slow as to eat commoner food.
@realDonaldTrump Posing with fast food junk because he THINKS that’s how/what all us minions eat. Telling voters **I’m Like You**. LMAO

@realDonaldTrump Drumpf does not eat KFC or fast food! This is a prop to appear like the 99%. His chef travels w/him & prepares his food.

Thankfully, there was at least one guy with sensible priorities.
@realDonaldTrump Meanwhile Hillary is dining on lobsters paid for by the Saudi government.
