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.
They deserved so much better than that.

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!
I don’t believe he could change the menu because of the food served during the Gov.Shutdown. to the Clemson Tigers. Next year may be different but serving something different would have caused the why did they an not us. @foxnews @potus

The first time this happened the government shutdown was a poor excuse but it was a reason. Now this keeps happening and it is just another testament to how classless he is.

So it wasn't just the government shutdown that resulted in the Fast Food Fiasco for Clemson Football……How disappointing…..
