Donald Trump Gets Mocked For Eating KFC With Knife and Fork

Donald Trump eats fried chicken with a knife and fork and he's being ridiculed for it.

The Republican presidential nominee tweeted a photo of himself, silverware in hand, beside a bucket of KFC on Monday while aboard his personal jumbo jet.

Trump faced a similar backlash in 2011 when he appeared in photos eating pizza with Sarah Palin in Times Square, both of them with plastic kives and forks in hand.
