(Newser) – Is McDonald's anti-Trump? It briefly appeared so Thursday morning when a tweet insulting the POTUS was posted and even pinned to the top of the McDonald's corporate Twiitter feed, but the tweet was quickly deleted and McDonald's said its account had been "compromised." The Hill has a screenshot of the original tweet: "@realDonaldTrump You are actually a disgusting excuse of a President and we would love to have @BarackObama back, also you have tiny hands." McDonald's now says it is looking into who compromised its account. President Trump, who has been pictured eating Mickey D's, was even in a McDonald's commercial once.
