President Donald Trump hosted the Clemson Tigers at the White House Monday night to congratulate them on becoming NCAA champions, and the whole event was maximum Trump.
Because of the government shutdown, White House chefs have been furloughed, so Trump treated the college athletes to a spread of fast food from a variety of popular restaurants.
"I thought this was a joke," one athlete said as he approached the buffet, which had been sitting out for several hours.
On Tuesday morning, Trump jumped on Twitter to humblebrag about the meal he personally paid for and, as only Trump can, screwed it up.
The original tweet, which has since been deleted, is as follows:
@StephMillerShow I CAN HAS GOVERNMENT? 🍔🍔🍔🍔🍔 https://t.co/zhT2xQCLmh— HAMBERDERS (@HAMBERDERS) 1547571614.0
"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!"
Yes, that's right:
Three hours later, Trump posted a corrected version:

But Trump's redo came too late. Burger King noticed the "hamberders" typo and hilariously trolled the president.
"Due to a large order placed yesterday, we're all out of hamberders," wrote the fast food giant. "Just serving hamburgers today."

Many on Twitter had a question for Berder King...
Who is their Twitter person? They deserve a raise.
