Pope Francis Inquires About Trump's Diet In First Encounter
The leader of the worldwide Catholic church wants to know if the leader of the free world is consuming a balanced diet—perhaps due to Donald Trump's hefty six-foot-three frame.
In their first-ever encounter, Pope Francis – jokingly and through a translator – asks Melania Trump, “What do you give him to eat—potica?” The First Lady did not argue the pontiff's judgement and lightheartedly responded, “Potica.”
The Pope was asking FLOTUS, who was born in Slovenia, about a nutty cake known in her homeland as “Potica”—this, according to the Daily News. His Holiness reportedly noshed on the traditional dessert when Slovenian Prime Minister Miro Cerar paid a visit to the Vatican circa 2015.
All that to say, perhaps POTUS should consider shedding a few pounds? After all, one's got to be fit for a job like president of the United States.
