Fox News was doing one of their gripping “Breakfast With Friends” segments in which they ask a series of pro-Trump diner patrons their views on the political questions of the day when they got more than a mouthful.
While “Johnny: Retired truck driver” said he didn’t give “a rear-end” about Trump’s tax returns, if the meal in front of him is any indication he clearly cares deeply about eating nearly a dozen eggs a day.
Viewers couldn’t help but notice that the man’s plate was overflowing with ova.
Holy crap! Check out how many eggs this Trump fan had on his plate during an interview with Fox & Friends at a Milwaukee diner pic.twitter.com/X8OFusIv6z— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) May 8, 2019
It just…stood out.
"it's totally ridiculous. they're promising people everything; free this, free that, free this, free that. and in actuality if you sit down and look at it, that's buying votes." pic.twitter.com/j7TZMlJmqp— Bobby Lewis (@revrrlewis) May 8, 2019

And the memes and reactions flowed like kitchen grease off a warm skillet.
Don't care about Trump's tax returns, climate change or cholesterol https://t.co/H3B4nraMw0— Juan ??/?? (@A_B_selectstart) May 8, 2019
This guy may not make it to 2020 if he consumes this many eggs every morning. https://t.co/Tkh8hXqXph— Dr. Fronc (@jenfronc) May 8, 2019
This guy's health insurance company just dropped him after watching this, https://t.co/BLH5qTMFlO— A Bit Snitty (@SaxonThegn) May 8, 2019
he was too busy raving about the socialists buying votes that i didn't even notice he literally has a whole-ass carton of eggs on his plate https://t.co/HPZ4glQvOk— Bobby Lewis (@revrrlewis) May 8, 2019

Fox DIDN'T EVEN ASK HIM ABOUT THE EGGS https://t.co/IfWnaKesWb— Libby Nelson (@libbyanelson) May 8, 2019
A keen-eyed observer came up with an answer to the mystery of the many-egged breakfast. It seems the man may have been in the middle of a “5 lb. breakfast challenge” when Fox interrupted him, which must have been deeply annoying.
According to a description the challenge offers the diner a free breakfast if they can consume “10 eggs, 8 pancakes, hash browns, 3 pieces of bacon and sausage, a slice of ham, and 2 slices of texas (sic) toast” all within one hour.”
So Fox News just interviewed this guy in a diner complaining about Democrats promising people "free this, free that" while he is in the midst of eating a "5LB breakfast challenge" that is... wait for it... free if you finish within 1 hour. pic.twitter.com/z3rf73JQrh— Arlen Parsa (@arlenparsa) May 8, 2019
