People are apparently eating Tide Pods, the laundry detergent pods that are for laundry and not eating—on purpose. It has reached meme levels and now celebrity levels: New England Patriot Rob Gronkowski was recently involved in a PSA on the dangers of Tide Pods (if they go in your mouth).

But on Sunday, Chrissy Teigen pointed out a deeper connection between Pod people and the current administration.

Critics have already swooped into Teigen’s mentions to let her know that people were eating laundry detergent previous to the Trump administration, thank you very much. And laundry-pod consumption has already been parodied. But her theory encouraged others to question reality.

Does Trump eat Tide Pods? Will we find out during Tuesday’s briefing on his physical health?

Please don’t eat Tide Pods, though. If you can’t help yourself, at least make edible ones.
