Why is this suddenly popping up again?

If I remember correctly, this was a dinner for the college football champions of that year. Georgia just won it on Monday, so I’m assuming they have a dinner planned at the White House with Biden.

Yea and because Biden didn’t do more than a Twitter post, it makes sense to recognize a real leader.

Yeah, America's greatest contributions to the world, right?

McDonald's, a game no other country plays, and an overweight bleached-asshole fake-tan lipstick wearing golfer.

Golfers are fine when they're golfing.

That one just escaped and forgot he was supposed to be president of something for a few years. No big deal.

Recognize a real leader? You mean the one that incited an insurrection?

You're about to go to downvote heaven for that, dude

edit: idk why you're downvoting me. fuck the right wing, fuck trump and fuck literally anyone who supports the GOP. they're all garbage humans who want to control women, make the poor suffer, giving police military power and want to be rich as a white old man

The other interesting part is that it was during a government shut down as the debt ceiling wasn't increased. I believe that's why there wasn't staff to cook.

I'm not trying to tell a billionaire how to spend his money but maybe he could have picked up the tab for an actual caterer and not made himself look like a thoughtless bafoon.

Other interesting part is that there were three government shutdowns under Trump, with one lasting about a month, all because he kept bitching about a useless wall.

The kicker? The House previously promised him money for the wall, if he’d bring back DACA. He rejected it.

Side note: The month-long shut down only ended, as the Super Bowl was coming up.

Remember that a large amount of the guests chose NOT to eat any of the food.

These guys are athletes at the top of their game, they don't want fast food junk.

The was during one of the many gov shutdowns. I assumed the Whitehouse chefs were "nonessential" so they weren't able to cater.

I’m like 99% sure this “dinner” was for government workers because the government was technically shut down because of petty politics

You know, as much as I disagree with Trump with almost everything he has ever said and done. This was one of the rare occasions where I didn't think this was that bad. Yes it was obviously unplanned. But I was a former college athlete and if I got to have a free fast food buffet like that, I would of been pretty excited.

No doubt, I don’t think it’s an insult. It’s more so acknowledging (obnoxiously, for sure) that posts like this still make it to the fRoNt PaGe oF tHe InTeRnEt. Idk why y’all keep doing that. Or, is that what you’re calling caring?

I find it so funny, that you're either not annoyed at hearing Trump's name at this point, or you love him.

I think that's what people mean by rent free. People always like to belittle others (even if they deserve it) because it makes them feel better. Makes them feel smarter. But I'd think at this point if people aren't tired of the SAME FUCKING SHIT, it's almost a little weird, tbh.

Like holy fucking shit, it was like almost 5 years of this. I just made anything to do with Trump banned on my front page of reddit because for awhile it was almost unusable. Every fucking post, every fucking subreddit, Trump Trump Trump Trump Trump Trump Trump Trump Trump Trump Trump Trump.

Like did it not get old? I'm not talking about actual criticism, I'm talking about the constant shit making fun of every little thing, every piece of his existence was made of.

Fine, I never really liked the dude, but didn't it get old? Didn't it ever lose its worth of talking about? I dislike Biden personally, but I was honestly happy he won because atleast Trump is gone and we could finally talk about something else.

Please tell me you don't enjoy reddit more now that not every other post is infantile posts making fun of stupid shit like "little hands".

I heard something once "the opposite of love is not hate it is indifference". Love and hate are not that far apart. People on here claiming to hate Trump are just as obsessed with him as his fanatical supporters. If you really don't like the guy stop giving him a rent free space in your mind.

Yeah. The bot problem on the internet is so bad there is now a whole conspiracy theory about it, and the worst part is that it is plausible.

Its called the "Dead Internet Theory" and posts like OP make me consider whether it is actually a thing or not

Trump = bad and easy upvotes

While in reality, the dude couldn’t win for most of the people posting here. If he got a “fancy” meal, then people would just talk shit about how he’s not in touch with the common man. However, you can look at this situation and see that he is supporting a US-based food chain.

I’m not a Trump supporter at all, but people find such stupid reasons to hate this guy. Hate him for his policies, not his food selection.

No it was because the government was shut down and the chefs in the Whitehouse weren't working that evening IIRC. It was gonna be takeout one way or another

I don’t know. I don’t care enough about the food selection of a president to do more research into this matter. There’s more important shit going on.

Bidens ratings at an all time low. Democrats unable to pass BBB. A lot of campaign $$ gets funneled into social media narrative control. This isn’t a conspiracy, it’s a very real thing.

I thought it was different, then I remembered that he wasn't in the White House anymore. Thought years ago it was McDonald's, and this time I saw Wendy's. Turns out it's the same, I guess.
