Wrong on Trump, Post columnist eats his words

Posted May 13, 2016 10:46 a.m. EDT

— Washington Post Columnist Dana Milbank has made good on his promise to eat his words.

Seven months ago, Milbank said he would eat one of his columns if Donald Trump became the Republican presidential nominee.

On Thursday, Milbank swallowed his pride and some newsprint.

He ate a nine-course meal laced with paper from the Oct. 4 edition of the Post and prepared by one of Washington's top chefs.

Milbank did wash down the food with some of Trump's wine.
