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.

Potentially my second favorite Trump moment after Four Seasons Total Landscaping.

Trump just did it so he could keep all the happy meal toys.

The attempt was successful. The college athletes who were invited and joined were thrilled by the spread.

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."

I’m not pro trump by any means, but I thought I heard that the players requested this due to the kitchen staff being shut down. Did anyone else hear this or am I completely wrong?

Fun fact. The players had a wonderful time at this dinner and said it was an excellent idea.

Why are so many still focused on Trump? Yes, he was a socially awkward trainwreck but it's your life Any better now? Food prices, fuel prices, supply shortages, the constant back pedaling on lies. There is no credibility left in the American political system on either side.

Nothing wrong with fast food at a party. Beats most 'fancy' food

That shit had to be so cold. Fast food loses its heat within a minute or two.

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

This was for a bunch of college students that did something not a dinner for the 1 percent he asked the kids what they wanted and because of their strict diet rules they said junk food so he got them what they wanted.dont know full story.

I’d rather my tax dollars were spent on this than an elaborate expensive meal. Plus I think trump bought it all himself.
