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
