Food 6 "Mexican" Dishes No One Eats in Mexico
This is the most popular food of 2020 so far
Though restaurants have shut their doors to dine-in service and the way we've grocery shopped has changed in 2020, food delivery and takeout remains a constant. And what food are people craving in 2020? As it turns out, it's a fast food cult favorite. Every State’s Favorite Fast Food During Coronavirus The most popular dish of 2020 so far is the spicy chicken sandwich, according to GrubHub’s State of the Plate report.

Federal Election Commission (FEC) Chair James E. "Trey" Trainor III insisted that the separation of church and state is a "fallacy" while describing November's election as a "spiritual war" in multiple recent interviews.
Trainor, a devout Catholic and an appointee of President Donald Trump, made the comments in two recent interviews with Religion News Service (RNS) and Church Militant, a right-wing Catholic news outlet.
10 Mexican Sandwiches to Knock Your Huaraches Off
America is a great country for sandwiches, there’s no doubt about it. But sometimes I get the sense that our neighbors to the south have been quietly outdoing us at the sandwich game. Take Mexico’s torta ahogada or the pambazo, for example. Those sandwiches are both stuffed to the gills before being dunked in fiery salsas that could scare the pants off your average gravy-soaked French dip or Chicago beef. Or the cemita—upon first glance it looks like a close relative of the hamburger roll.
"What we see going on around the country is complete anarchy in places where the rule of law has been completely abrogated," Trainor told RNS. "So it is a spiritual war in that it is striking at the underlying foundations of our constitutional republic. It's getting rid of the Christian moral principles that are the basis of the foundation of the country."
Republican Trainor was nominated by Trump last year and his position with the FEC was confirmed by the Senate in May. He had previously worked as lawyer for Trump's 2016 campaign. The agency that regulates election finance has been stalled since the July resignation of former Commissioner Caroline Hunter, also a Republican, which left it without the quorum required to legally vote on actions.

In Trainor's recent interviews, he claimed that Trump had nullified the Johnson Amendment to the IRS tax code, which prohibits religious groups from "participating in or intervening in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for public office" or risk losing their tax exempt status. Although Trump did issue an order directing the Treasury Department to be lenient in enforcing the law, he lacks the Constitutional authority to revoke it by executive order.
Trainor blasted Catholic bishops for admonishing a priest who appeared in a viral video claiming that Democrats "cannot be Catholic" and would "face the fires of hell" if they do not repent, telling Church Militant "I don't think a bishop has the right to tell a priest that they can't come out and speak." He described the presidential election as "a battle between good and evil." Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is a practicing Catholic.
This is the most popular delivery order request in America
Delivery food has long been a part of the American lifestyle, from takeout Chinese to the best pizza chains in America. But there's no denying that during the coronavirus pandemic and throughout 2020, delivery food has become even more important. As people order more burgers, dumplings and salads to eat at home, what kind of special requests are they making?

And while you may have a lot of questions about food and coronavirus, the Food and Drug Administration doesn’t have any reason to believe that the virus can be transmitted through food.
When speaking to RNS, Trainor claimed that comments from President John Adams meant that the Constitution was written for Christians only. His comments may have been based on a 1798 letter from Adams that said it was written for "a moral and religious people" but did not specify Christianity. President Thomas Jefferson also wrote a letter indicating that a "wall of separation" does exist between church and state. The Treaty of Tripoli, which has legal significance beyond both of the letters, also includes language that suggests there is separation.
"Regarding the separation of church and state, rather than misquoting John Adams' Oct. 11, 1798, letter to the Massachusetts Militia, a better measure of the founders' views can be taken from the Senate's ratifying and President Adams' signing, the year before, of the Treaty with Tripoli, which stated that 'the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion,'" Trainor's Democratic colleague, FEC Commissioner Ellen L. Weintraub, told RNS.
