That hamberder spread is so offensive to me, I can't imagine how the Clemson players must have felt

The assumption that football players' favorite food is berders and fries may or may not be legit, but what college kid invited to the WH to celebrate a successful season wants to be fed with stuff he can buy for himself, any day? Isn't the honor of being invited to dinner at the WH the opportunity for us regular folks to sit at big fancy tables--that belong to US--and be fed with food that will impress us? How is it honoring anyone to feed them hamberders, and not even hamberders made by some fancy chef? I think DT finds this very amusing and demonstrative of his ?charm? ?sense of humor? ?understanding of what the Young Folks like?

This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for at least 99% of these guys, something they'll want to tell their children and grandchildren about, something their parents would want to brag about to the neighbors, and DT has totally fucked it up.

I wish the Clemson team, as soon as they learned they'd be fed McDonald's, had all suddenly had to wash their hair that night.

What an asshole our president is. He can't even get a simple celebratory dinner right.

1. I had a boss once who had to give a party for incoming medical students.

He would buy the cheapest meat they had at the grocery and make the faculty (i.e. me) cook it on an outside grill. This reminds me of those hours getting greasy smoke in my hair while dodging the flames.

2. He has one of the finest chefs in the country working in his kitchen.

He has the taste buds of a teenager. If I had his money and position I would be eating great food and drinking the best hooch all the time!

Dimes to donuts says the money will come out of his reelection campaign.

6. I had to honestly think about this

Remember, we're talking about basically 20 somethings here. The few millennials I know well enough to know their eating preferences wouldn't have like this spread. But strangely it still would have been a selection of some "fast casual" kind of food. Burger FI is amazingly popular with this crowd for what I consider to be a mediocre burger. Chipotle, Pei Wei, are two more that seem to be high on their preference list.

I'm not sure that many of the football players would have wanted some sit down lunch with silver forks and kale salads. But I'd bet ya there are several places that could have created much better burgers. Old Ebbitt's just down the street makes decent wings.

14. Those college kids aren't millennials, they're Gen Z.

 

Millenials are all grown-ups now, late 20s to mid 30s, not college kids.

10. They got a trip to DC and the WH and a very memorable experience because Trump was an ass

It would be pretty hard right now to beat the feeling they had being on Clemson's winning team.

Trump just had to make the dinner about himself. He hates that he is old and is currently being seen as a loser, whereas the team was full of young winners with lives ahead of them.

12. This is how they felt

ESPN headline - Clemson players cheer fast food at White House


On the ESPN front page†

White House serves fast food on silver platters for Clemson celebration†

Some players "whooped" when they saw the spread, according a pool report.†
Thatís the only part of the story that backs up the headline. The rest is Trump running his mouth.†

And how to get them to click links.

22. It is spin if you use a handful to represent the whole. "Some players" probably also sighed, but

that didn't make the headline. In a group that large behavior is not uniform, there's always a variety of "some players" actions to choose to report or use as the basis for the headline. ESPN knows what sort of angle gets them the best response from their target audience. Just because a sentence or statement is factual, it does not follow that the sentence or statement is offering an objective view of the subject.

cold hamburgers and fries. Somehow I doubt it.

30. Whooped? For cold fast food, or just for being there in group and meeting "an important celebrity"?

If you've ever been around sports teams - or any group of young people getting ready to compete or start a hard, physical task, they tend to whoop to get their adrenaline going before going into combat. The Marines down at MCRD whoop all the time when they're fast-marching in formation or running the obstacle courses- you can't miss hearing them, even if you're just driving by the base.

Those Clemson players have been spending the past six, seven months working with chef-dietitians making food they'd eat instead of any fast food crap they might be attracted to when they're on campus near the food court. Being presented with a spread of cold fast food on metal trays, as opposed to freshly prepared "hot off the grill" burgers with carefully selected condiments, and fresh fries with the proper balance of nutrients and no chemical preservatives to keep shelf life up makes them "whoop"?

Honestly, such a presentation would make me dry-hork - which could be confused for a whooping sound by someone expecting "cheers".

17. Clemson deserved that for even showing up

I don't feel sorry for them one bit. They enabled a traitor to this country.

This whole things just makes the entire country look bad which was the real intent of it in the first place.

18. As usual Trump takes what could be a reasonable

fun event and turns it into a s__tshow. Nothing wrong with serving burgers. Making it a production where Trump is the hero for doing it (I paid for them) is demeaning at best. He is a self professed billionaire, and he could wait until he is asked if he paid for it (or better for him being accused of hosting an expensive function on government funds during the shutdown).

21. But his base probably loves this . . .

Years ago I got in a talk with someone with more of a working-class background by myself. I think it might have been spurned by "Super-Size Me" or the book Fast Food Nation. He really felt all the talk about nutrition and criticism of fast food was snobby, bourgeois, intellectual junk. Like the cultural wars, he said he thought the only people who thought about McDonalds disparagingly were elitists who didn't understand how vital its accessibility was for poorer folks.

25. And after giving a short speech, the idiot walked out without chatting or shaking hands with

them. Hosts aren't supposed to just leave their guests, especially when the point of the event is to honor them for their accomplishments.

about his heroic efforts to honor the winning team from Clemson. He misspelled hamburger (BUT HE PAID FOR THEM!!!!!!!!!!!) as "hamberder."
