President Trump's House of Carbs
College football national champs from Clemson visited the WH the other day to celebrate their victory over Alabama, and the President treated the players to an assortment of fast-food take-out...which he says he's personally going to pay for. Well, isn't he generous?
Seriously ... under the
portrait of Abraham Lincoln the Donald showed off his feast fit for a (junk
food) king ... they served pizza and packaged selections from
McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Burger King. Apparently the Donald thinks
the critique over the menu selection is about money rather than the reality
that his gov't shutdown has furloughed the staff who normally would have
handled the catering for the event. Some visitors expressed
disappointment; "I thought the WH was 'sposed to be 'fancy'..."
read one Tweet. Others wondered why the President didn't have his
staff simply cater the buffet from Trump's International Hotel next door
and served something more appropriate given the venue ... like a healthier selection of food. (Clemson actually has a
dietary coach ... an "executive performance chef" ... on staff to
ensure players do not consume a steady diet of the food groups
