Donald Trump probably never expected that an eight-piece meal could generate so much controversy. The GOP nominee tweeted a picture late Monday night of him on his private plane, headed from a rally in Pennsylvania to Virginia. In the shot, he is eating what appears to be an eight-piece bucket meal with a side of mashed potatoes and gravy from KFC. 

But that photo drew tremendous ridicule on social media when people noticed that Trump was eating the fast food with a knife, fork, and spoon. 

For others, it wasn't the utensils as much as the choice of restaurant that showed poor judgment. 

Still more people noticed the salt shaker on the table.

And one astute Twitter user viewed the whole thing as a metaphor for a potential Trump administration.
