Baylor Basketball player Kalani Brown got the full White House treatment, and her reaction is hilarious.

The championship-winning Baylor University Lady Bears, who won their third national title in this year’s N.C.A.A. final, were welcomed to the White House yesterday. This is the first time a women's team been honored by President Donald Trump with an official invitation to the Oval Office, and the president marked the occasion in his usual style: by presenting the athletes with fast food.


Earlier this year, Trump welcomed the national champion football team The Clemson Tigers to the White House with a carefully-curated selection from Wendy's, McDonalds, and Burger King...served on silver platters, because he's classy like that.

The Lady Bears got the same treatment.

Baylor player Kalani Brown posted an Instagram video of the buffet. "The moment everyone's been waiting for..." she typed, adding a laugh-cry emoji.

The White House offered the Lady Bears a spread that included Big Macs, Pizza, and Chick-fil-A. "Whoa, like wow," Brown said in her video, laughing as she panned over the tables heaped with burgers and pizza.

"Okay, Donnie, cool."

Twitter was amazed.

Trump spared no expense: he even provided heat lamps to keep the fries hot and crisp. There was even BBQ sauce!

Not every team has accepted Trump's invitation to partake in fast food at the White House. N.C.A.A. champions from the University of Virginia turned down the president's invitation, citing scheduling conflicts. The South Carolina women’s N.C.A.A. champions turned down their invite, too - scheduling conflicts again!

When the Clemson Tigers got their burgers and fries, Trump said it was because of the government shutdown. I wonder what his excuse is this time?

Kalani Brown's got all the commentary we need. "Okay, Donnie. Cool."

President Donald Trump's reaction to white supremacists and neo-Nazis in the aftermath of the Charlottesville riots hasn't been forgotten, even two years later.

The President infamously asserted that there were "very fine people on both sides" at the Unite the Right rally, where white supremacists protested the removal of a confederate statue. The ensuing violence resulted in the murder of counter-protestor Heather Heyer.

Amendment 4—a Florida referendum restoring voting rights to former felons—passed in 2018 with 65% of the vote, paving the way for an additional 1.4 million voters in the swing state.

Republican Governor Ron DeSantis immediately took steps to undermine the public will by signing into law a bill that would only restore voting rights to felons who fully pay all fees and fines imposed after leaving prison.

Under Florida law, court debts left unpaid after three months are referred to private debt collectors, who can then tack on a surcharge of up to 40%.
