Animal style, indeed

The hilarious reason why everyone is making fun of Eric Trump’s trip to In-N-Out Burger

Eric Trump, a man born into vast wealth, earned the internet’s ire for breaking one of the biggest rules of eating in fast food restaurants: You pay for the soda. You get free, clear cups for water. It’s that simple.

Putting a soda/non-free beverage in a clear cup sends the message to your fellow diners that you’re a stingy rule breaker. So it was uniquely hilarious that Trump, the real estate mogul’s youngest son who’s worth an estimated $150 million, pulled this tacky move at a Las Vegas In-N-Out Burger.

As Deadspin first reported, Trump snapped a photo with a fan (?) after the final presidential debate. The image quickly went viral:

Another photo, posted on Instagram by Trump’s wife Lara, confirms our worst suspicions: She’s sipping from the burger chain’s trademark, palm tree-emblazoned soda cup even as her husband clutches his stolen lemonade just barely out of frame. For shame.

People (rightly so) used the opportunity to drag Trump for being a cheap asshole.

Trump has yet to publicly comment on lemonade-gate. But rest assured, we’ll update this story when he does.
