During a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, former Trump aide turned tell-all book author Cassidy Hutchinson shared an unusual tidbit about former President Donald Trump’s preference for ketchup.
According to Hutchinson, Trump insists on using ketchup that comes in tiny bottles, and this peculiar choice is rooted in his “very potent fear of being poisoned.”
The revelation came in response to a question from host Jimmy Kimmel, who humorously asked how often Trump would throw ketchup at the wall.
This query was prompted by Hutchinson’s previous testimony to the House Select Committee about witnessing ketchup dripping down the White House dining room wall, seemingly due to Trump’s anger.
Hutchinson initially struggled to contain her laughter, given the absurdity of the situation. However, she went on to explain Trump’s unusual ketchup preference, saying that he has a genuine fear of being poisoned.
Trump apparently favors the small Heinz glass bottles because he enjoys hearing the satisfying “pop” sound when the bottle is opened by his valet or the person serving him the meal.
Kimmel expressed surprise at this revelation and jokingly speculated whether Trump’s preference for small ketchup bottles was due to his hands being on the smaller side.
Hutchinson humorously suggested that it might be linked to his fear of being poisoned, prompting Kimmel to question whether this fear could be attributed to Trump’s ex-wives or possibly Russia.
HUTCHINSON: SO, HE, DONALD TRUMP HAS, I DON’T KNOW IF YOU KNOW THIS OR IF ANYBODY’S THIS IS I DON’T KNOW IF… HE DOES HAVE A VERY POTENT FEAR OF BEING POISONED.
KIMMEL: DID NOT KNOW HE HAD A FEAR OF BEING POISONED.
HUTCHINSON: WELL, NOW YOU DO. UH HUH. SO HE USES AND PREFERS THE SMALL HEINZ GLASS BOTTLES BECAUSE HE LIKES TO HEAR HIS VALET, WHOEVER IS SERVING HIM THIS MEAL. HE LIKES TO HEAR THE POP WHEN HE …
KIMMEL: REALLY? THAT’S WHY? I THOUGHT HIS HANDS WERE SO LITTLE. IT SEEMED LIKE LIKE A REAL KETCHUP BOTTLE. ITS FOR POISONING HUH. DO YOU THINK HE’S. GOT THIS FEAR OF BEING POISONED FROM ALL THE EX-WIVES OR WHERE DID HE…
HUTCHINSON: OR IS IT RUSSIA? I DON’T KNOW..
KIMMEL: GOOD TO KNOW. I DON’T THINK RUSSIA’S POISONING HIM.
The exchange provided a lighthearted and intriguing glimpse into a unique aspect of Donald Trump’s behavior during his time as President of the United States.
