On Tuesday morning, Donald Trump was so pleased with himself over his fast food stunt with the NCAA football national champion Clemson Tigers that he still wasn’t quite done talking about it on Twitter. By midday on Monday, everyone knew that Trump was planning on serving a giant buffet of fast food to these elite athletes, and there was already plenty of mockery of him for it — not without good reason either:
- There were no French fries in any of the pictures or video released of the “great American food” banquet, which is unacceptable
- He literally owns a fancy restaurant and could have had the event catered at cost
- Nothing on the planet compares to the disgust and shame one feels while eating cold cheeseburgers from a dollar menu
- Of all the really horrible publicity stunt ideas he’s had since his inauguration, this is the one most likely to make people actually physically sick
But despite all of that, he was still just beside himself with pride at his feast. He couldn’t help but tweet about it, of course, and the first draft (he of course deleted it and posted another later) of his boasting social media post was a sight to behold:
I know you saw it, but it’s so much fun to type that I’m gonna just type it out for you anyway:
Great being with the National Champion Clemson Tigers last night at the White House. Because of the Shutdown I served them massive amounts of fast food (I paid), over 1000 hamberders etc. Within one hour, it was all gone. Great guys and big eaters!”
Guess who else noticed that little fox paw of the President’s?
due to a large order placed yesterday, we’re all out of hamberders.
just serving hamburgers today.

We’ll be there in the middle of the night, Burger King. After we’ve drunk enough to obliterate the memory of this idiot President.
