Trump greeted the National Champions with food from McDonald’s, Wendy’s, and Burger King, with some pizza for good measure. The dipping sauce packets were placed in beautiful silver bowls, and golden candles lined the table of this hillbilly buffet. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

So imagine you're a college athlete playing football, you go through the entire regular season, undefeated, you make it to the post season, the playoffs undefeated, and then you win the national championship for college football. That is exactly what happened to the Clemson Tigers this year. Undefeated record. So Monday evening they got to make a trip to the White House as is customary for the national champions. And when they arrived, they were greeted with what could only be described as a hillbilly buffet of fast food provided by President Donald Trump. Now, before the clemson players even arrived at the White House, the pictures began circulating because Donald Trump was standing over this table filled with fast food garbage, bragging about how awesome he is, how awesome the spread is. And of course that he paid for it all himself. The pictures were making the rounds. They're all equally hilarious to see Donald Trump sitting in front of a table with what most, most people assumed was probably just his typical Monday night dinner.

Um, the other thing that people were pointing out was the fact that all this food had been picked up a while ago, laid out expertly to sit there and get cold before the players arrived. Uh, it was a smorgasbord, you know, they had McDonald's, they had Wendy's, they had burger king, they had pizza, they had everything that the typical college kid would gorge themselves on. And I have no doubt that, you know, obviously these kids, even though they're all, most professional athletes, they probably do indulge every now and then and eat fast food or pizza. So I have no problem with that. I don't think they were poisoning their bodies there. What I do have a problem with is president Trump standing there like he's giving them the greatest meal they've ever had in their lives. I mean, these guys were dressed up there in their suits.

It's a big honor to be invited to the White House. They just want a huge national title and you're giving them fast food. I mean, they could have stopped on the way to the White House and brought their own if they wanted to. You'd go to the White House because it's got to be this crazy good experience that you will remember for the rest of your life. And now I guess to Trump's credit, he tried to make it super fancy forum. They had the chicken nugget dipping sauces in those wonderful silver bowls. So I guess that was kind of fancy. He had those golden candles lining the table, you know, how to create the ambience in the room. So that was pretty nice for everybody. Um, but here's the thing, uh, you know, again, the Internet absolutely had a field day with this. Uh, there were pictures going around people posting the picture of Trump standing there doing this thing saying, you know, caption this, somebody, he took Trump and Photoshop him as the Hamburglar standing in front of the table.
