In case you thought your 5-year-old had a lock on whining “no fairs’ that his older sister got a bigger piece of cake, know that the so-called mainstream media is also worried about who gets more dessert — at least when it comes to the U.S. president.

According to Time magazine:

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.

Wait, what? No Russian dressing?

The Time article inspired CNN to retell the story from a child’s point of view:

President Donald Trump is living every child’s dream: More ice cream.

According to an extensive interview with TIME Magazine, Trump’s White House staff has settled into Trump’s routine and know his desires, sometimes before he does.

For example: Trump takes two scoops of ice cream with his chocolate cream pie, TIME reported, while everyone else around the table gets just one.

CNN even devoted a video report to the, um, scoop:

The Daily Caller’s Jim Treacher was gobsmacked by the attention the “elite” media gave to Ice-cream-gate:

Unbelievable. Diet Coke? Thousand Island dressing? More sauce? Two scoops of ice cream? You’d never see President Hillary do this! Or, if she did, you wouldn’t read about it in Time.

Treacher noted that other outlets in the liberal hate machine went ballistic over the report.

The Atlantic’s David Frum tweeted:

Prompting Treacher to fire back:

Yes, David, it does. It explains that even with the many, many legitimate reasons to criticize President Donald J. Trump, you guys obsess over every single scrap of piddling nonsense. By the time something important actually happens, everybody’s too tired of your endless whining to pay attention.

“When everything is Watergate, nothing is,” he added.
