A set of internal hotel documents obtained by the publication show that the hotel had a seven-step process for pouring Trump a Diet Coke that included four separate photo exhibits.
"The beverage had to be opened in front of the germophobe commander in chief, 'never beforehand,'" Washingtonian writes, summarizing the instructions. "The server was to hold a longneck-bottle opener by the lower third of the handle in one hand and the Diet Coke, also by the lower third, in the other. Once poured, the drink had to be placed at the President's right-hand side."
Servers at the hotel restaurant were also instructed to ask Trump if he'd like his Diet Coke with or without ice the minute he was seated.
During his presidency, Trump was notorious for drinking several Diet Cokes a day and even had a "Diet Coke" button installed at the Oval Office that he could press and alert a server that he wanted a soda.
