The decadeslong feud between Donald Trump and Vanity Fair Editor Graydon Carter has turned into a presidential food fight.
On Wednesday, Vanity Fair posted a scathing review of the grill at New York City's Trump Tower, under the headline "Trump Grill Could Be the Worst Restaurant in America." Written by political reporter Tina Nguyen, the review said the appeal of the restaurant, "like the candidate, is that it seems like a cheap version of rich."
The dumplings, Nguyen wrote, were filled with "flaccid, gray innards"; the burger, she said, reminded her of an "M.S.G.-flavored kitchen sponge lodged between two other sponges"; and the drinks seemed to be created by a college freshman "experimenting in their dorm room." Even the complimentary dessert tasted like Tums, Nguyen wrote.
"As soon I got home," she wrote, "I brushed my teeth twice and curled up in bed until the nausea passed."
