    ...and by "gourmet meal fit for champions," I mean McDonald's, Burger King and Wendy's. These are the culinary options when you visit the White House in the midst of a government shut down.:)


    This morning, President Trump announced he would be hosting the national champion Clemson football team for a celebratory dinner at the White House. Somewhat oddly for Trump, who tends to favor steak and fine dining, the president noted the team would be served “McDonald’s, Wendy’s, and Burger King with some pizza.” Why the downscale menu? “I would think that’s their favorite food,” he told reporters.

    It seemed a little strange that the players would not want to mark their visit to the White House with something fancy, distinctive, or otherwise not available to them all year round. Early this evening, an answer arrived. White House press secretary Hogan Gidley saidthat, due to the government shutdown thinning out the White House staff, Trump will be paying for the dinner personally. The team’s favorite food also coincidentally happens to be the least expensive.

    Trump’s additional case for his choice of meal is that it’s “great American food,” because who wants to eat something imported?

    Pathetic. And stupid. Guarantee that Clemson’s nutrition advisors don’t recommend that garbage.

    He can't feed them expensive gourmet food, he's saving for a wall.

    I don't even know how to rate this post. On one hand it's funny, on the other hand it's pathetic. Even if you like burgers, I'm pretty sure there's a better burger to be had in D.C. than a cold fast food burger and they'd be more than happy to cater a meal at the White House.

    If nothing else he could have gotten the 10 best food trucks in D.C. and let the players grab whatever they wanted.

    I think it’s hilarious. Posted it on the funny pic thread. While a college student I would actually have loved a Big Mac buffet at the White House.

    He missed an opportunity. Instead of "steel slats" or concrete, he should just get it sponsored by McDonald's and have a Great Wall of Big Macs. Of course, then what would he eat?

    The person in charge of ordering the food had to think this was a joke when they first saw the list.

    That's pretty sad. Shows a complete lack of empathy.

    Another tried and true RE developer move by the individual one. Crumb throwing at its finest.

    Someone pointed out that the Trump International Hotel is only a half mile from the White House. I bet somebody there knows how to work in a professional kitchen and cater an event.

    Would have been better off with a short ceremony and no food than serving that crap.

    Pubs have had a weird obsession with Puerto Rico lately. Too bad they didn't show that same concern after it got decimated by a hurricane.

    That picture is truly a sad and embarrassing sight to see. Well Clemson...post your burger at the White House but do know that Trump just spit in your non deserving poor self. Just embarrassing.

    Trump could have served his guests Ramen noodles and bottled water and his supporters still wouldn't see anything wrong it.
    "It shows just how down-to-Earth he is, guys!"
