The media’s reaction to Trump’s fast food extravaganza at the White House was comical. They are nearly obsessed with it. The Washington Post did an entire report, complete with an infographic.
Here’s an excerpt from the article:
President Trump’s extravagant, $3,000, 300-sandwich celebration of Clemson University
In an administration overstuffed with bizarre moments and unusual events, Monday night’s celebration of the Clemson University Tigers at the White House nonetheless made a mark.
The Tigers, who won the national college football championship after not having to play my alma mater Ohio State, had the traditional meeting with the president, enjoying remarks from South Carolina’s senators after retiring to the State Dining Room for a meal.
A meal that was made up of fast food from various national chains.
“Because the Democrats refuse to negotiate on border security,” a statement from press secretary Sarah Sanders explained, “much of the residence staff at the White House is furloughed — so the president is personally paying for the event to be catered with some of everyone’s favorite fast foods.”…
So here’s the spread on the main table as it looked before the players’ entrance. Once they were in the room, of course, those various hamburgers and (probably to a lesser extent, salads) were quickly plucked from the table.
Here’s the infographic:
Holy shit, they actually tried to tally the cost. They even have infographics of probable table layouts.
