Donald Trump's McDonald's Diet a Cause of Anger and "Roller Coaster Emotions," Says Morgan Spurlock

He says all that fast food is filling a "sad hole."

Donald Trump has never hidden his love for all-American fast food. But now, thanks to former associates Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie and their new book Let Trump Be Trump, we know the extent of it.

“There were four major food groups: McDonald’s, Kentucky Fried Chicken, pizza, and Diet Coke,” they wrote. And they noted that, while on the road, the campaign would often stop at McDonald’s, where Trump would order two Big Macs, two Filet-O-Fish sandwiches, and a chocolate milkshake, which roughly equals a whopping 2,420 calories.

So what does Morgan Spurlock, think of Trump's habits? After all, Spurlock is the filmmaker behind Super Size Me, in which he ate only McDonald's for 30 days.

"My prediction is it's only a matter of time until his heart explodes... and just like covers us all in freedom," according to comments to TMZ, which caught up with the documentarian at LAX.

"It's just a matter of time," he repeated, adding, "I think he's trying to fill a sad hole right now. And there's only so many Filet-O-Fishes you can stuff into that hole."

Spurlock also noted the food choices are apparent in Trump's physical presentation. "Look at him — doesn't he look like the picture of health?"

And, based on his own experience, it's likely effecting Trump's behavior as well. "All I know is, when I was on that diet, I was antsy, it made me angry, my emotions were like a rollercoaster. So it could be playing a part."
