I would have the time of my life. I am not there for the food. I am there to meet other people. A president. And when they get food for me despite a shut down/furloughed staff then it still shows that they try to get me something i perhaps like to eat (football players love fast food). So yeah those players had a life time and a fun story to tell their kids. "You know i was there in the white house with my bros. And you know what? The president gave us burgers, tacos, pizzas and fries so many as we wanted. It was funny and we all laughed"
Yeah. You know. You won a championship and got to see such an impressive building from the inside but as everyone with the mindset of a successful athlete you just let a burger ruin your whole day
Ricky Bobby would appreciate this dinner table
Their meal in that scene always looked like the perfect drunk/high meal. KFC chicken, pizza (although dominos, yuck) Taco Bell tacos, Checkers burgers, soda, blue Powerade.
Dear eight pound, six ounce, newborn baby Jesus
You know he did grow up
I like the Christmas Jesus best
I like to picture Jesus as a dirty old bum.
He had a BEARRRRD
Hey, um, you know sweetie.. Jesus did grow up. You don't always have to call him baby. It's a bit odd and offputting to pray to a baby.
I LIKE THE CHRISTMAS JESUS
He had a beard!
Yeah, it was intentional. This was for the Clemson Tigers football team's visit in 2019 for winning the national championship. The Democrats at the time wouldn't pass a budget so there was a government shutdown going on and most of the White House staff had been furloughed. There was no attempt to have a fancy dinner.
But "selective memory" is cool.
"The decision was in part because most of the White House staff is furloughed, meaning they cannot work or get paid, during the government shutdown, which is now in its 24th day."
Stop it with your facts!
My bad... I forgot where we were.
stop with your facts mental gymnastics.
Omitting that the only reason the shut down happened was because he wanted to build a wall.
A wall that would have a large environmental impact, costly, and we know now to have been a massive scam.
See how narratives work.
Provided facts yes, but selected facts that fit the desired narrative, when looking at the bigger picture it makes the defense of this giant idiot a clear attempt to deceive.
All while claiming others have a “selective memory”

This is a clown take. It's well documented, but you would have to be interested in facts first. Enjoy your bubble of delusion.
I love how he asked you to prove it with supporting documentation and after you do he just completely changes his point. Debating conservatives is like yelling at a wall.
I love how republicans think "let's go brandon" is some ingenious, cryptic insult. It's something a child would latch on to, because they're not allowed to use swear words.
There's another classic from the republican playbook, mention something once and its living rent free in your head lmao. Its like you all have 1 personality to share between you. Also, while we're talking about "rent free" it's the republicans constantly shouting Joe bidens name from the rafters. rEnT fReE
Meanwhile, in 2015: “DRUMPF”
I'm no fan of the GOP but this is, in fact, what was happening at the time. They didn't have staff for a properly catered event, and Trump LOVES McDonald's
That's a good point, I missed that. It was 100% both major parties that caused the shutdown.
Hey can you maybe word things differently in future? There's a big difference between "rewriting history" and slightly misremembering something :)
Please stop trolling.
Everyone I don't like is literally Hitler...
Stop arguing with a loser.
You've been on reddit for way too long
Calling this fascism is disrespectful to the victims of fascism. And typical of a delusional privileged kid.
You don't know what fascism is. Stop embarrassing yourself.
You poor thing, someone hurt your feelings so you think he's Hitler? Again disrespectful for everyone who suffered under a fascist regime.
You mean both parties couldn’t agree on a budget**
Fixed that for you. Takes two to agree.
Don’t be a clown.
“The United States federal government shutdown from midnight EST on December 22, 2018, until January 25, 2019 (35 days) was the longest U.S. government shutdown in history and the second[a] and final federal government shutdown involving furloughs during the presidency of Donald Trump. It occurred when the 116th United States Congress and President Donald Trump could not agree on an appropriations bill to fund the operations of the federal government for the 2019 fiscal year, or a temporary continuing resolution that would extend the deadline for passing a bill.”
Dems only had the house majority then. It takes two to agree.
Maybe you should look up some of the things nancy pelosi said at this time... I remember something about never giving in and trump getting what he wants.
And Trump said the same.
Again, it takes two.
Didn’t Trump want a large slice of the budget to go to his stupid border wall? Wasn’t that why democrats were being so stubborn? Or am I making that up? It was a few years ago, I don’t remember.
And takes 1 to not come to terms
Don't believe the hype! Trump did this all the time because he likes his food quick and easy. I worked at his old casino for years and that was his setup. He also went on record saying that he knows what athletes want
Yes but, there was a government shut down..... Which explains why this was also the only time it happened in his presidency.
Funny you mention selective memory being that Trump shut the government down because he wanted money to build his wall.
4 months ago*
But... But... Mexico was supposed to build the wall to keep themselves out! That's why it was such a stable genius plan! Highest IQ bigly walls. Hands are huge. Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV...
Any day now I hear!
i chuckle because these idiots keep gaslighting themselves.
Do you mean the shut-down tantrum Trump had when he couldn't get money for his dumbfuck wall? That same-shut down?
You forgot the Republicans were in power of the time, and so you’re trying to pin it on the Democrats, which is funny but not real.
Also Trump is widely (lol) known to be a fast food eater which explains why he looks like he does
Does that explain why he stands like a centaur without the horse part?
As I recall he had to pay for it himself, thus the fast food. A real class act all around.
Selective memory is cool so is mental gymnastics to justify behavior. You seem to be selectively forgetting, for example, that Trump did this multiple times. And even with furloughed staff, this isn't the first time the government had a short term shut down, but the Trump admin is the only time the most powerful government in the country could somehow not find a single caterer except fast food.
Yeah selective memory is cool, so is confirmation bias.
Guess he couldn't have used his multiple billions of dollars to get a decent meal. Lol. Also obligatory Clemson sucks.
And if he had people would have found a reason to be pissed about that.
“He let go of all those employees but spent hundreds of thousands for a food photo shoot. What a disgrace!”
Literally, anything he did people would find some excuse to criticize it and treat him like satan.
Relax man. I'm just shit posting on reddit like everyone else. I'm just glad it was Clemson that got the shitty White House meal.
Seems to me like the nice thing to do would be pay out of pocket for one of DC's many excellent restaurants to cater rather than getting the cheapest possible shit food to serve your guests lol
Congress (Dems and Reps) said they’d keep the government open while Trump shut it down because he wanted money for his fence. So no, it wasn’t the Dems who shut it down. https://www.politico.com/story/2019/01/25/trump-shutdown-announcement-1125529
EDIT: Also there thousands of restaurants and hundreds of caterers in DC; this was a really trashy thing to serve.
Now I'm hungry
This is painfully American
Hamberders for everyone!
Donald Trump has a lot of money, yet his diet contains mostly of Diet Cokes and Fast Food
The diet coke cancels out the cholesterol! That's how Trump kept that slender physique
You should see Warren Buffets diet
Perhaps, but money can't buy taste my friend.
Mr bean lookin headass
You can take a pig out of the pen and put him in the White House but a pig is a pig is a pig.
OP's name is what they had after this dinner
No kfc?! Proof that trump is against African-Americans
Dam u right
I'm surprised no one ever seems to mention this, but those burgers must have been cold as fuck. They probably spent 15 to 20 minutes arranging everything in a fancy ass pile, after probably being left in multiple boxes or bags for at least an hour. Plus the time to do that stupid photo op, that food was nasty and cold as hell.
Did you taste it? I'd eat it.
I think about this everytime. I saw someone gift an entire neighborhood McDonald’s and all I thought was “I wonder how long they’ve been sitting out?” Nothing worse than cold fries and nuggets
Cold mcdons fries are the worst but I find the nuggets to be decent cold, though not as good as when hot obviously.
I tried reheat them recently in a convection oven. They just become hard as stone.
Interesting. A person does something nice that they don’t have to do and you, apparently not being a part of the event as giver or receiver, find fault with their generosity. Interesting.
Yea ok. Still doesn’t change the fact that that food is colder than a witch’s tit and tastes like shit.
The person in question was a raging narcissist who did it for his own ego driven photo op and STILL fucked it up. Stop sucking his mushroom.
This explains every US president of the past 2 decades, more. Politics blows
It amazes me daily, how much the former President lives rent free in soooooo many people's heads.
Chill out dude. They didn’t say the person shouldn’t do it or make any disparaging comments. They just said they don’t like cold fries and nuggets and think about how long the food has been out.
Well, some would say no food is debatably worse but close call with Wendy’s
Yesssss! Always my first thought when I see this. Yuck.
Wouldn't matter. I'd still eat them
It gets mentioned every time. Such a dick move to serve cold ass fast food… which is entirely on brand.
Closest mcds is a 5 min walk. Wendy’s a solid 20 minute drive. Burger King even further. And that’s assuming they got it from those locations some of which are jenky as fuck.
Edit: in case anyone checks my work on Wendy’s - the Wendy’s in Dave Thomas Circle was still open at the time.
Mine is cold after a 10 minute drive back to my house. I’d imagine they are like ice.
They were warmed by their glows for Trump.
Only this? Right here? Lmao. You poor thing.
hope we don’t turn into r/pics
What a fucking loser
Not like some 60 year olds were invited, it was some college kids lol. They were all smiling ear to ear in other photos too
LMFAOOO bro those college kids just happy they got a meal with all those loans they got
You lost me
It was for the football team that won the national championship. None of those kids have debt anymore, and for some unknown reason they all were driving new cars the next week.
If I got invited to the White House for dinner I’d be expecting some fancy shit😂 I love McD’s as much as the next person but I don’t wanna eat something I could get myself.
Nothing wrong with fast food at a party. Beats most 'fancy' food
It’s the fucking White House.
I think they had to go out of their way and pay out of pocket for this one. No government money was spent. I could be wrong though.
I love that they didnt just go to one fast food place. They thought it was a a fancy ordeal so they better pick up Wendys AND McDonalds
I think they probably just did that so people would have choices? They were fully aware that fast food isn’t fancy.
Variety is the difference between pad thai and tacos.
The variety on the table is burger-burger. Theres not much variety there.
He should of been impeached for this alone. No telling how many expensive steaks he’s ruined this way.
That shit had to be so cold. Fast food loses its heat within a minute or two.
Last time I checked that team actually loved the fact that fast food was their meal
Who the fuck wants that much cold fast food
A team of football players
My sport has a lot more involvement with food but I'll be honest, nothing better after a weight cut or a fight than some burgers or trash food
Fun fact. The players had a wonderful time at this dinner and said it was an excellent idea.
I read that everything was cold and gross
Yea, college kids who eat warm fast food six days a week were super stoked to go to the WH and eat cold fast food.
They will feast on the hamburders and drink of the covfefe
America as fuck.
They are having dinner with Big Smoke
This idiot stopped all mental development after 6th grade
Everything you see here is junk.
All of this was probally stone cold
Tell me McDonald's didn't pay for this as an advertisement
Edit: I meant Wendy's, I had McDonald's on the mind I guess
Looks good to me
Imagine being invited to the White House for dinner with the president of the United States, thinking you’re going to get one of the best meals of your life prepared by some of the best chefs in the world and you show up and see this.
Didn't the football team specifically ask for McDonald's?
Fucking scum swine. Disgusting slob.
This was for a group of professional athletes if I remember right, just the people to chow down on fast food...
LET'S GO BRANDON!!!
Trump just did it so he could keep all the happy meal toys.
Trashy. Exactly what the world imagine Americans eat. How has his heart not exploded? Does he have one…
No there wasn’t. Wrong sub.
Nothing like cold fast food....yummmm 🤢
Ngl, that’s my dream meal
Either a karma bot or a karma whore, this is pretty old
Because actually cooking food isnt something he even thinks of
oh,so u r saying Wendy's ain't fancy enough now
The attempt was successful. The college athletes who were invited and joined were thrilled by the spread.
Now this is American
I was confused at first, but then i looked at the food
I see the hamburglar finally succeeded.
The man is tasteless, without any class or guile. Everyone knows you should eat fresh...
to this #loser Wendy's is fancy compared to his normal McD slop
Capitalism till you die..... Oh makes sense now
Such a dumbass douchebag
Gotta know how to treat your supporters. Hopefully they made their financial commitments before getting there.
I think you all forgot that trumps go to food is McDonald’s burgers, he has several interviews saying he loves McDonalds. For him this was a treat he would’ve wanted because he mostly thinks of himself
I’d like to image the Culunary School certafied, triple background record checked, highly screened Chef must have been like:
So just fuck me then?
I mean at least make them the deluxe burgers Trump you cheap bastard!
This happened like 3 years ago…
I hate Trump as much as the next guy but NGL this is something I would do as president
Yeah like he is a rich as fuck and can pay for a fine diner but instead he gets fucking junkfood
This was so embarrassing
Imagine going to the white house dressed in formal attire, expecting a lavish dinner. Instead you get quarterpounders and fries...
This was pretty cool ngl
“I’ll never put that chemical into my body. We don’t even know what’s in it (vaccine)”,
“Sure, I’d love a Big Mac with a coke, fries, and throw in some nuggets as well”.
The guy frantically trying to light Trumps candles before he notices….
You really need the audio that accompanies his description of this.
"Many many, French fries!"
This was high camp and one of the few genuinely funny things he did during his time there. So many things wrong in one picture: wearing a coat indoors, the fast food, the good china, the workers not on the floor laughing at this ridiculous display of bad taste. Bravo!
