On Monday, the President ‘owned the libs’ with burgers and fries.
The government shutdown wasn’t going to stop the President from hosting the NCAA champion football players of Clemson University on Monday. Nope. Our fast-food loving President had a creative way of handling the meal — he ordered hamburgers and fries from McDonald’s, Wendy’s, and Burger King as well as lots of pizza. He said that he wanted the meal to be ‘a little fun’.

Just look at those fries in paper cups with the Presidential seal on them.
A. Thing. Of. Beauty.

To make the left even more upset, it turns out that President Trump paid for the lavish fast-food feast out of his own pocket.
President Trump said he is personally paying for the meals provided to Clemson for their White House visit, due to the government shutdown. Trump told reporters that he is serving "McDonalds, Wendy's and Burger King with some pizza." https://t.co/s9Gz0ZZzEt pic.twitter.com/ub4ZdPPGSA

In addition, we were provided what may very well be the greatest photo of President Trump evah. I’m seriously tempted to print it, frame it and hang it on my wall.
Just look at this magnificence! You’ve got President Trump in his signature long, red tie, a beautiful table filled with real American fast-food piled on silver platters with gold candelabra and lit candles, all while President Lincoln’s portrait is in the background.
Does it get better than this?
Well, there was just one thing that could have made this moment just a tiny bit more perfect than it was — including Chick-fil-A as part of the buffet.
I just wish it had been Chick-fil-A.

But, like all things Trump, his innovative solution was mocked online.
Congrats. Have some cold ass Big Macs. https://t.co/GPYHCC6WhS

There sure are a lot of Big Macs in that picture, all of which invariably will be lukewarm or cold by the time the Clemson football team gets them.
Also, does this look like we are having a "national emergency"? NO. Because there is no national emergency. https://t.co/7T29mZPJsb

And for all the haters out there, (of which there are many) it could have been worse, he could’ve ordered another of his favorites, KFC. That would have had him labeled ‘racist’ faster than you can say ‘ridiculous racial stereotypes’. Not to mention the intense Twitter debates over whether or not it was appropriate that the White House provided silverware.

I swear he does this stuff just to watch libs lose their shit. Hilarious. pic.twitter.com/W9yGSkDcbx

All in all, it looks like those Clemson players had a good time.
Like this guy:
The Democrats’ refusal to compromise on border security and reopen the government didn’t stop President Trump from hosting national champion @ClemsonFB tonight. He personally paid for the event to be catered by some of America’s great fast food joints pic.twitter.com/eK4CuuBXGM

Watch Trevor Lawrence, Clemson’s Quarterback tell TMZ Sports that the food was ‘awesome’:
In a rather shocking piece on Slate.com, Yascha Mounk wrote that the hubbub over the fast-food choice by the President makes critics look like ‘uptight elitists’.
Yes, yes it does.
Many Americans like fast food.
But I don’t recall everyone getting bent out of shape when Barry took a jaunt over to 5 Guys and brought back burgers to the White House, do you?

Media Reaction: ???
2009: Obama takes fast food orders, gets in The Beast, drives to fast food restaurant, buys bags of fries & burgers, brings them back to WH & eats fast food in The Oval Office

It’s official: The Republicans under President Trump have become the party that understands and appeals to middle America, and the Democrats have become the party of the snobbish elites.
