Donald Trump Says He Personally Paid For Clemson Tigers Fast Food Feast In Championship Celebration

The president was roasted on social media and by late night TV hosts for bragging about the "hamberder" dinner.

Published January 15th

On Monday, the Clemson Tigers football team visited the White House to celebrate their National Championship win over Alabama. The entire team got dressed up in their best suits and traveled to the White House, where they were surprised with a feast of fast food.

Instead of the high-end meal they were probably expecting, Donald Trump, who was forced to foot the bill thanks to his government shutdown, opted to serve hamburgers, chicken nuggets and pizza from fast food chains like McDonald’s and Dominos.

  1. The sight of Donald Trump standing over Big Macs on silver platters while White House Staff lit candles quickly became a trending image
  2. Of course people on Twitter dragged the orange man in the white house all the way to a super-sized hell

    Late-night TV hosts also poked fun at president, with Late Night host Seth Meyers joking: “Normally I would have a salad for dinner on Monday, but they told me they only eat every fast food.”

    Stephen Colbert, host of the CBS' Late Show, said to Trump: “[you're] just projecting your favorite foods onto them.”

  3. Trump was also called "cheap" for serving the champions food that cost less than $5 apiece when he's a "successful rich man"
  4. Later on, the president tweeted about the night and said he paid for over 1,000 "hamberders"
  5. Even though he said, on camera, that there were only 300 burgers
  6. Also, what's a hamberder?
