Everyone knows Trump adores American fast food, but geez. If nothing else, President Donald Trump is always fun, and on Monday he did not fail to amuse with his choice of meal to serve champion college football team, The Clemson Tigers.
Having won the college football national championship, Trump decided to celebrate the team's victory by putting an "All American" slant on a traditional White House dinner. What slant is that, you ask...
Trump served them fast food. Yes- pizza, burgers and fries. The same kind of food you'd get at a children's birthday party at Chucky Cheese's!
The greasy aroma of McDonald's and Wendy's hung heavy in the White House air as Trump saluted college football's Clemson Tigers for winning the national championship.
Trump said he even paid for their meal himself because of the partial government shutdown.
A highly unusual White House spread greeted the players. Mounds of boxed burgers were served on silver trays, and fries were held in little cups with the presidential seal printed on them. There were side salads for any vegans or vegetarians in attendance.
"We ordered American fast food, paid for by me. Lots of hamburgers, lots of pizza," Trump said after returning to the White House from a trip to New Orleans. "We have some very large people that like eating, so I think we're going to have a little fun."
Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said much of the staff in the White House residence has been furloughed because of the shutdown, "so the president is personally paying for the event to be catered with some of everyone's favorite fast foods." The Clemson team's visit is its second since Trump took office. The Tigers last visited in June 2017 after their championship run the previous season.
