The Clemson Tigers football team visited the White House on Monday night to be recognized for winning the national championship against Alabama.

Earlier on Monday, President Donald Trump said, “I think we’re going to serve McDonald’s, Wendy’s, and Burger King, with some pizza. I really mean. It’ll be interesting. I would think that’s their favorite food.”

Well, it turns out he wasn’t kidding, and seemed very proud about paying for the fast food.

So, the Clemson team lined up in a room full of McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s, and Domino’s for their prestigious White House dinner.

One Clemson player was even overheard saying about being served fast food at the White House, “I thought it was a joke.”

That’s the proper reaction, but nope- this was a very real thing.
