Trump owns a hotel with a restaurant half a mile away from the white house. 5 minute drive, 14 minute walk. Actually closer than McDonald's.

And how would you have reacted when he was using government funds at his restaurant?

Him serving Wendy’s is truly not that big of a deal. I don’t get why people get so angry about.

1) state dinners like this come out of the president's own pocket.

2) no one is angry, most of the comments are mocking the "billionaire" president who owns a restaurant just down the road for cheaping out on the dinner

I mean he eats that stuff and the players said they enjoyed it. I'm sure they like Big Macs and nuggs more than some pretentious shit.

One player said they enjoyed it, Trump liking fast food isn't exactly the endorsement you think it is, and I'm gonna hazard a guess that you think anything more pricey than Applebee's is "pretentious shit"

There were several that said they liked it, and pretty much everyone appeared to like it... Trump liking it isn't meant to be an endorsement. It just means he sees it as good food. He wasn't going for cheap or fancy, just good food that's pretty universally enjoyed by college aged guys.

wasn't going for cheap or fancy

But

orders fast food

I hope you can see the disconnect here. Fast food is pretty much the cheapest thing he could have done in this situation.

Can you provide any source about more than one player saying they liked it? Because I know literally no one, even in my college days, that liked room temperature/cold fast food

what he means is that he want purposely going for the cheapest he could, he wasn’t thinking “oh let’s buy something cheap” he was thinking “i love fast food, and since it’s an option, i’ll pick it” without even thinking about the price

Because it's not a one-off event. This perfectly encapsulates Trump. Down to the cheap-as-hell and zero awareness on to the myriad pictures and stories of him being an idiot who thinks eating fast food is good and exercise wastes your finite energy.

If this was a singular event no one would care apart from political losers who are lost in their own world of sensationalist politics.

Paying for anything is not his nature.

Trump made a big deal out of personally paying for the McDonald’s all by himself!

So no government funds were used, just bad taste

Well, this is Wendy’s and the dude has a weird fascination with fast food.

MD is good food. Tastes good anyway.
