Obama’s former press secretary runs the corporate communications team at McDonald’s, which tweeted out criticism of President Trump on Thursday, in addition to wishing for President Obama to return.
The McDonald’s corporate Twitter account bashed President Trump on Thursday and expressed its wish for President Obama to return.
The tweet has since been deleted.
The fast food company called Trump “a disgusting excuse of a President” and poked fun at his “small hands.” The tweet also asked for Obama to return to the presidency.
At one point, the message was pinned as the company’s top tweet.

In June 2015, Robert Gibbs joined the McDonald’s executive communications staff as its Global Chief Communications Officer.
McDonald’s, at the time, called Gibbs one a couple new executives who “are … highly-respected, talented leaders who will bring a wealth of experience and outside perspective to McDonald’s as we build a more modern, progressive burger company.”
Gibbs “will lead McDonald’s in communicating clear, coordinated messages to internal and external constituencies, enhancing the brand and supporting corporate strategies,” McDonald’s said in 2015.
Additionally, Trump himself once appeared in a McDonald’s commercial, the $1 Big Mac to McDonald’s character Grimace.
UPDATE: McDonald’s claimed their account was “compromised.”
Twitter notified us that our account was compromised. We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this.
