A picture of US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on his private plane eating KFC with a knife and fork has been doing the rounds on social media.

Critics on Twitter alleged the photo was staged because most people use plastic forks or spoons to eat KFC or, more commonly, just use their hands.

Others pointed out the mixed messages in the photo - a man eating fast food on a private jet bearing his name. Despite the fancy silverware, Mr Trump was using a humble pair of paper plates.

The Wall Street Journal got a free plug in the picture, as well.

In honour of Mr Trump eating KFC, Story has put together a compilation of the best pictures of politicians eating food.
