McDonald’s, Wendy’s, & Burger King, Pizza. Donald Trump served the Clemson Tigers a stoner’s dream during their White House visit on Monday as a congratulations for beating the Alabama Crimson Tide to win their second national championship in three years.

The White House said in a statement that the president wanted “to host a fun event to celebrate” the champions, but “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.”

Trump tweeted the following, reminding us that he paid, which made me laugh out loud.

Trump’s bizarre choice of serving lukewarm fast food to college kids was only reprimanded by older people whose metabolism has come to a screeching halt. Clemson offensive guard Mat Bockhorst went viral for taking full advantage of the President’s offerings.

One former national champion wasn’t as impressed. Reggie Bush, who visited the White House with USC when George W. Bush was in office, voiced his disgust with the meal the President provided.

Bush tweeted Tuesday morning: “Just when you think you’ve seen it all, @ClemsonFB you guys deserve better you are world champs and this is the honor you receive from our nations leader!? This is disrespectful on so many levels, just a huge slap in the face after that kind of performance! SMH!”

He followed it up with this:

When I was in college and someone offered me endless burgers and pizza, I wouldn’t hesitate to call them Mr. President.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
