Trump Celebrates Reaching Delegate Goal With McDonald's Meal In Private Plane

Donald Trump has finally accumulated the number of delegates needed to become the Republican presidential nominee, and he publicly marked the occasion in a low-key way, reports PEOPLE.

On May 26, he posted an Instagram photo of himself on a private plane eating food from McDonald's and drinking a Diet Coke; the caption read, "Celebrating 1237!"

Celebrating 1237! #Trump2016

A photo posted by Donald J. Trump (@realdonaldtrump) on

The Internet responded quickly, with some pointing out his past criticism of people who consume Diet Coke, notes the Huffington Post.

Some also embarked on a Photoshop battle where people doctored the photo he shared in different ways; one features Mr. Burns from 'The Simpsons' in Trump's seat while another shows President Obama assessing his meal from the side.

@realDonaldTrump That taco bowl makes your hands look tiny.
I am 100% percent certain the phrase "Sombrero or no sombrero?" came up before taking that Trump taco bowl photo.
what media org will be the first to have someone eat and review a Trump Tower taco bowl on FBLive
I had to check twice to make sure that Trump eating a taco bowl saying “I love hispanics” wasn’t a parody account. Silly me.
How has nobody mentioned about Trump's taco bowl pic how big his little hands make that fork look? #TrumpHands #RubioWasRight
Thought this was a FAKE Twitter. How stupid&self-absorbed. Trump taco bowls is your Hispanic outreach? #GOP #moron https://t.co/dkVhCY5mWr
Nothing will get you the Hispanic vote like eating a taco bowl on Cinco de Mayo, Trump
BREAKING: After taco-bowl pic and assurance that he loves him, Trump's favorability among Latinos jumps to 78%
Because nothing says authentic Mexican food more than a Trump taco bowl! #CincoDeMayo https://t.co/XZV00jEg6P
When Donald Trump loses the Hispanic vote by 80 points he's going to wonder "What more did they want? I took a picture with a taco bowl!"
Though I guess salient issue here is not quality of taco bowl, but GOP’s utter inability to court the nation's fastest-growing voting bloc.
Ohhhhhhhh the taco bowl is MADE out of Hispanics, now I get it
A taco bowl is just a taco with a big, beautiful wall around it. https://t.co/Xmo771Jr2D
yelling i love hispanics while eating a taco bowl is like saying i love women while throwing singles at a stripper https://t.co/sPt5sGz6vy
