The Twitter account of the fast food giant McDonald’s sent a shot across the bow Thursday morning, attacking President Donald Trump as “a disgusting excuse of a president.” The tweet also said the corporation would much prefer President Obama and also managed to hit Trump’s hand size as well.
The post appears to have been either a hack or a rogue employee and was taken down within 30 minutes. But of course, the Internet remembers for ever.
The company later tweeted an explanation, saying that their account had been “compromised.”
Twitter notified us that our account was compromised. We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this.

Believe it or not, Trump has long been a fan of McDonald’s. While on the campaign trail, he proudly posted an image of himself enjoying what looked like a Big Mac and fries. He also once reportedly had New Jersey governor Chris Christie fetch him some when he was hungry.
Before he was a candidate, he even appeared in their commercials.
