FBI Confirm Boxes Taken from Mar-a-Lago Raid Filled with Used Fast Food Wrappers

MAR-A-LAGO — Early Monday morning, FBI agents executed a search warrant at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence. Authorities were in search of classified documents presumably taken by the former president. In total, agents hauled roughly 20 boxes of material. The FBI has now confirmed that among the boxes taken were several filled entirely with old fast food wrappers. Each wrapper accompanied by handwritten notes marking what item it contained, the year of consumption, and his musings.

Below is a reproduction of what was in the boxes. While it would be nearly impossible to print all of the hundreds of thousands of wrappers confiscated, we’ve decided to highlight some of them for you. We do warn, however, that some of them may shock you.
