Two Scoops

Overview

Two Scoops refers to a TIME magazine article reporting on President Donald Trump's special dinner in which his chef brought one scoop of ice cream for each his guests but two scoops for the President. "Two scoops" quickly became a joke online as people mocked the president's two scoops as indicative of his apparent domineering personality, as well as the news media's coverage of his dessert.

Background

On May 11th, 2017, TIME magazine published an article entitled "Donald Trump After Hours,"[1] an exclusive, behind the scenes account of President Trump's life living in the White House. One paragraph in the article, which described the president's particular dining habits, specifically his wait staff brining him two scoops of ice cream with pie, while his guests got one, receieved immediate attention. Reporters Michael Scherer AND Zeke J. Miller write:

The waiters know well Trump’s personal preferences. As he settles down, they bring him a Diet Coke, while the rest of us are served water, with the Vice President sitting at one end of the table. With the salad course, Trump is served what appears to be Thousand Island dressing instead of the creamy vinaigrette for his guests. When the chicken arrives, he is the only one given an extra dish of sauce. At the dessert course, he gets two scoops of vanilla ice cream with his chocolate cream pie, instead of the single scoop for everyone else. The tastes of Pence are also tended to. Instead of the pie, he gets a fruit plate.
