If you’re one of those people who thinks that President Donald Trump subsists only on junk food, well, one look at his White House chef is going to dispel all your thoughts regarding that.
Andre Rush is the president’s personal chef. He’s not a man who’s used to getting a ton of attention from the media.
However, after The Wall Street Journal’s Vivian Salama got a picture of him preparing food for the White House’s iftar dinner this past week, he’s been going viral.
One look at him and you can see why:

Yeah, I’d say he works out. As Joe Simonson pointed out at The Daily Caller, you could easily confuse Rush “for a refrigerator in the kitchen.”
So, who is Rush? Well, we don’t know a lot about him. However, we can glean from his LinkedIn page that he’s served our country before.
“Being in the military, I lead by example and install the same values to those I have trained,” his page reads.
On his profile at Voice America, Rush is described as a “who currently prepares nutritionally balanced and delicious foods at the White House in Washington DC and is a Master Chef trained in classical plating, baking/ cake decoration, and a master ice carver.”
So, if you ever need one of those large ice swans and a delicious paleo meal, this is probably the one chef you should check out.
His LinkedIn profile also adds that he has an MBA and has cooked for world luminaries including various presidents “to the world leaders of today.”
The rest of the internet was checking him out for distinctly different reasons.
Dang, Chef Rush!!! I see you work out a little in your free time?

Whoa, that one dude needs an action movie or something. I'm guessing Trump won't complain about the food tonight.

White House Cook during the day. Crime fighter at night. Enemies of Darkness beware. I’d like to know his super hero story.

The point is that you don’t get a body like that by eating Big Macs every day. So, while I don’t think it’s terribly important whether President Trump loves McDonald’s or not, rest assured that a lot of his meals are coming from this guy, and when he says you eat the broccoli and lean beef, you eat the broccoli and lean beef.
That being said, we expect to see a lot more of Andre Rush in the future. After all, given how much attention he got from just this post, it looks like he has quite the future.
