Donald Trump may go only where he thinks it’s safe — and where people adore him. But the GOP candidate and media maestro has to eat, and restaurants — unlike rallies — don’t screen for political leanings. So a reporter who found herself in the same restaurant as Trump went all Julian Assange on the candidate, scandalizing him among foodies by revealing that Trump ordered his steak “well-done.” This is tantamount to heresy among fancy people, who like it rare — medium-rare if they must.
