- It's Day 24 of the partial government shutdown. The Clemson football team was invited to the White House to celebrate their national championship win over Alabama.
- Stacks of room-temperature burgers from McDonald's, Wendy's and Burger King sat around for hours on one table. Piles of lukewarm Domino's pizzas, McNuggets and fries on another. Homemade salad was the only alternative. Candles were lit.
- Unsurprisingly, they blamed someone else for this cheapo catering: "Because the Democrats refuse to negotiate on border security, much of the residence staff at the White House is furloughed -- so [Individual-1] is personally paying for the event to be catered with some of everyone's favorite fast foods."
Here’s a video I shot of President Trump showing off his 300 hamburgers. pic.twitter.com/P06S6I5w07— Hunter Walker (@hunterw) January 14, 2019
I also hear that because of the shutdown there won’t be clear-away service — there was talk of putting out giant trash bins. Dinner at the White House. But it’s a tailgate. https://t.co/rUm4NIvILW— Kate Bennett (@KateBennett_DC) January 15, 2019

Cold big macs. Is what potus generously offered the Clemson tigers. Also he is a racist and the majority of the team is black. Where is Dabo Sweeney? An opportunity lost for hard leadership here. To say “Guys, republican or Democrat, we aren’t going to a racists White House”.— steven pasquale (@StevePasquale) January 15, 2019
