Senate, Jeff Ruby team up to create Donald Trump hot dog

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - On a normal given day, Senate Restaurant in Over-The-Rhine has a Dog of the Day that is typically named after a celebrity.

Chef/Owner Daniel Wright had some help from fellow Cincinnati restaurateur Jeff Ruby to create Thursday's Dog of the Day.

The result? A Donald Trump dog.

It's a beef dog topped with:

  • Crushed Cheetos
  • Beer Cheese
  • Mini cocktail wieners
  • Chili seasoned with Jeff Ruby steak seasoning

Ruby recently took aim at Trump on social media.

He posted to Twitter saying, "Tell @realDonaldTrump he's OJ'ed tonight @TheRealJeffRuby Steakhouse Louisville until apologizing to POWS.Aside from that enjoy our city."

Ruby tweeted the jab hours before the GOP frontrunner was scheduled to arrive for a speech in Louisville on Tuesday.

Following the tweet, Ruby told in a telephone interview what he thinks of Trump:

"He denigrates women," Ruby said. "He demeans everybody. He totally denigrated a disabled reporter on television. He's all sizzle and no substance."

FOX19 NOW reached out to Ruby Wednesday, who explained that he took one of Trump's comments last July as an insult to Matt Maupin and his family.

At the time, Trump had been asked about Sen. John McCain. He responded, "he's not a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren't captured okay?"

"I simply asked for Mr. Trump to apologize. And while he thinks those captured are not heroes, I think Matt WAS a hero. And while Mr. Trump likes the ones " that AREN'T captured" I liked Matt. And I never met him. He died serving my country that I love," wrote Ruby.

Ruby famously told former football star O.J. Simpson to eat elsewhere when he tried to patronize Ruby's Louisville restaurant the night before the 2007 Kentucky Derby.
