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:
“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:
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 hamburgers etc. Within one hour, it was all gone. Great guys and big eaters!

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.”
due to a large order placed yesterday, we're all out of hamberders.
just serving hamburgers today.

Burger King out of berders? Much like Pho restaurant being out of Pho. What the pho? Un-pho-giveable. What’s a berder to do…

Many on Twitter had a question for Berder King…
Who is their Twitter person? They deserve a raise.
According to the rules of the internet, the Burger King social media manager is now the new President of the United States.

People also tore into Trump for not ponying up for healthier food.
What does the shutdown have to do with Fast Food? You could have easily served them better, more healthy food, you cheapo!

Trump could afford to pay a porn star $130 mK for sex but couldn’t pay for a decent caterer to feed the national champions

You have a hotel less than a few miles a way…
You can’t afford anything other than Mcdonald’s?

I knew it. McDonald Trump intentionally fed the Clemson Tigers cheap fast food and gave some fake presentation to the media to troll the everyone as a propaganda stunt to highlight the shutdown. Never underestimate Trump. He’s the king of trolls.
