As per tradition, the White House was expected to host the NCAA football champions for a dinner with the president this week. But there was one problem: Because of the partial government shutdown, most of the White House kitchen staff had been furloughed.
So President Trump came up with a grand idea! He ordered, and paid for thousands of dollars in McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s and Dominoes fast food, then invited the Clemson Tigers to toss aside their weight watchers diets and dig in to a fast-food feast served on silver platter White House trays.
One table was covered in trays of various fast-food burgers, while another was slathered in pizza and fries (can’t make this up.)
Asked whether he preferred McDonald’s or Wendy;’s, Trump insisted that “I like it all” and that “it’s “great American food.”
“Because of the shutdown, as you know, we have the great Clemson team with us,” Trump said. “So we went out and we ordered American fast food paid for by me. Lots of hamburgers, lots of pizza, I think they’d like it better than anything we could give. And so, we’ll have a little fun.”
“I like it all. I like it all,” Trump said. “It’s all good stuff, great American food.”
Trump added that he ordered more than 300 burgers for the dinner. During remarks to the players, Trump congratulated the team on its victory, and joked that he’d rather feed them burgers than salads prepared by the First Lady (humorous this one.)
The players seemed happy!
As usual, the business man himself will do anything to pump AMERICAN companies and as such don’t be surprised if McDonald’s gets a Trump bump in the next Q.
