President Trump personally paying for catered hamburgers for Clemson title celebration

The Clemson Football team has been spending time at the White House on Monday to celebrate their second National Championship in the last three seasons.

President Trump told reporters earlier in the day that the team would be served fast food during their visit.

"The Clemson National Championship team will be coming tonight," POTUS said to reporters. "It will be exciting. A very great and unbelievable team. They will be coming tonight, and I think we are going to serve McDonald's, Wendy's, and Burger King, with some pizza. I really mean it. It will be interesting. I would think that's their favorite food. We will see what happens."

There was some media backlash about fast food being served tonight for the celebration, so the White House released a statement about the food situation.

"The President wanted to host a fun event to celebrate the College Football National Champion Clemson Tigers, deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley told CNN in a statement.

"Because the Democrats refuse to negotiate on border security, much of the residence staff at the White House is furloughed - so the President is personally paying for the event to be catered with some of everyone's favorite fast foods."

The White House is working with a very limited executive residence staff that handles food because of the government work stoppage.

POTUS was asked if he likes the food that is being served to the football team.

"I like it all. I like it all," he said. "It’s all good stuff, great American food. And it’s going to be very interesting to see at the end of this evening how many are left."

spacer You know you’re a Trump apologist when you call crap from McD’s “catering”
JeffersonStTiger
spacer Technically providing crap from Mickey D’s would be catering
