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.

  1. Trump Derangement Syndrome. Hilarious. Don’t bother to mention the other players who thought it was awesome, or the pictures upon pictures of the players smiling and having a good time.

    1. Also don’t mention how Trump is the greatest President in the history of everything and if you don’t scream the Trump is our conquering hero who rose up from the ashes to become a true god among men, then it’s fake! FAKE!! FAAAAAAAAAAAAKE!!!!

      1. Haha — ran through your comments. You have TDS too! Seek help. Trevor Lawrence loved it, but why feature him — he’s only the QB on the championship team. Instead random player “thought it was a joke” headline.

  2. Hope the players who strictly adhere to good nutrition got some appropriate medical care today after the ghastly apology for a meal served in cardboard the night before. A Thai takeaway would have been far better for their digestions!
    Just goes to show how selfish this bloated narcissist is.

  3. The best part is that Trump HAS to point out that he paid for it. Seriously, what other President would have done that? I get that you have to have some level of arrogance and narcissism to run for President in the first place, but Christ on a cracker…

  4. Imagine the hysteria if he’d brought in Chick-fil-A. Five Guys? That would have busted the budget.
