Trash In Aisle 1600

Many Big Macs, oddly no watermelon for the big brown boys. NBC photo

Make it stop. When a sports team - in this case, the Clemson Tigers college football champions - degraded themselves to put on their best suits and fly several hundred miles and make their laborious way through the requisite security maze in order to be honored with a visit to the White House, what they got for their questionable trouble was tables stacked with cold Big Macs, chicken nuggets, french fries and other congealed fast food that had been personally "catered" by the tacky, purportedly billionaire POS in residence, who likes his foodmade by the grossly underpaid, often brown-skinned workers at Macdonald's and Wendy's but just doesn't want to let any more of them into his pristine white country. Inexplicably wearing his coat inside - does this racism make me look fat? - he gestured to his greasy spread and boasted to his assembled, blank-faced guests it was all "good stuff." "We have 300 hamburgers and many, many French fries," he proudly proclaimed. "We have everything that I like." From LeftSentThis: "Nothing says full-circle-Americana like a white supremacist in a house built by enslaved Africans - who were exploited and fed garbage - hosting predominantly black Clemson collegiate athletes exploited by the NCAA industrial complex (being) fed fast food." Word.

Update: Because no lie is too petty for a sick liar who truly can't stop himself, Trump later magically inflated the number of all-American treats he "bought" for these poor guys from 300 to 1,000. He also misspelled them, turning them into "hamberders." Enter Burger King, who spectacularly trolled him the next day with, "Due to a large order placed yesterday, we're all out of hamberders. Just serving hamburgers today." Ok, so now Burger King is throwing serious shade at the alleged President of the United States. RIP the dignity of the office.
