    How long does the President have to wait after his food taster tastes his food before he can feel comfortable eating it? :confused:

    He must eat a lot of cold or reheated food. :D

    Although maybe he needs to hire a reheater observer too to make sure the guy who reheats it isn't slipping something in there.

    Wonder if he can roll down the window in Air Force one to flick his pickle??

    What is the terminal velocity of a pickle chip from 35,000 feet??

    Maybe I'm goofy, but as someone who has worked venues that hosted Presidents, I wouldn't be surprised at all if there was a designated taster. Those guys even inspected ceramic dishes for their potential as weapons.

    So is this a taster to see if the venue's food doesn't embarrass them before it's served, or is it seriously a security precaution? I still have a hard time seeing how a taste can prevent an intentional poisoning, given how slow-acting poisons can be.

    This hospital visit does have the Left all riled up and and I'm sure hoping for the worst.

    The gym where I work out in the morning has a whole bank of large screen monitors on the wall... ESPN, Fox, CNN, etc playing all the time. Unfortunately I found myself in front of the one with CNN this morning and they were talking about it.

    I caught myself laughing out loud when the CNN commentator said that there was a genuine concern as to the health and welfare of the POTUS and the public had a right to know what was going on.

    Yeah... I'm sure they're concerned! They're hoping that his blood pressure is somewhere close to 210 / 150 and he had pain up an down his chest and arms.

    Lying b*st*rds.

    I don't know. I never spoke to the viability of such a precaution. I'm just saying with some of the stuff I've heard of them doing for event security, I would not be surprised if they included that.

    I did. Seems like the most mid evil way to ensure the president's health. And how effective? Lot of deadly poisons to choose from that kill slow. The president isn't eating day old food, much less 6h old food.

    Laugh if you must. They almost got the elder Bush one time. Missed it by that much lol!! Puked all over the prime ministers shoes then laid his head in his lap! The only time his food taster was home sick.

    I don't know why it would be so hard to believe the president would have a food taster.

    Snopes(yes, but they are talking about Obama):
    https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/taste-buds/

    "The US Secret Service has always refused to confirm that US presidents travel with a food “taster,” in line with their policy of discretion on all security related issues.
    But it is known the Service goes to great lengths to scrutinise the source and the preparation of food served to US presidents whenever they eat out of the White House to ensure it is not tampered with,

    Nonetheless, a March 2013 report about President Obama’s supposedly declining to partake of the main course during a lunch meeting with Senate Republicans on Capitol Hill because his taster was not present apparently took many readers by surprise:

    “Unfortunately, you know, the president can’t,” said [Maine Senator Susan] Collins when asked if Obama ate at the lunch meeting.
    ““He looked longingly at it,” Collins continued. “He honestly did look longingly at it, but apparently he has to have essentially a taster, and I pointed out to him that we were all tasters for him, that if the food had been poisoned all of us would have keeled over so, but he did look longingly at it and he remarked that we have far better food than the Democrats do, and I said that was because I was hosting.”

    A lot of "probably", "likely", and "essentially" in those stories. Of course they have somebody who ensures their food isn't tampered with. The idea that it's a "taster" who needs to take a bite and then wait (for what amount of time?) to make sure he doesn't croak before the President eats is ridiculous. But obviously eating food from unknown origin is risky. I wonder how Trump and Clinton got all that McDonalds food cleared. I assume they just don't let on that it's for the President. Still though, McDonalds food, even untampered with, is pretty sketchy.
