Donald Trump unknowingly started a national debate Monday night when he posted a photo on Twitter of him enjoying a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken.

The Republican nominee was leaving a rally in Pennsylvania when he stopped at the fast food chain to pick up what looks like an eight piece bucket meal with a large side of mashed potatoes and gravy.

“Great afternoon in Ohio & a great evening in Pennsylvania – departing now,” Trump tweeted alongside the photo. “See you tomorrow Virginia!”

Absolute chaos ensued.

People were furious that he chose the Kentucky chain over Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen or Bojangles’ Famous Chicken ‘n Biscuits.

Some of his followers were angered because he was eating the dish with a fork and a knife.

And some said he was just pandering to the American people by attempting to eat like they do.
