Apart from his over-done steak smothered with ketchup, Trump's favorite meal is a cheeseburger from McDonald's. As a result, it was right in character for him to serve National Champion Clemson food from McDonald's in an elegant room in the White House.
To the president’s fans, it was an example of Trump’s resourcefulness, his relatability, his rule-breaking moxie. He had ordered the McDonald’s — there was Wendy’s, Burger King and Domino’s, too — because the government shutdown had furloughed White House staff who would have otherwise prepared a meal, he said.
The tab for the feast was $2911.44
But for those who dislike the president, the image of him and his 300 hamburgers was something altogether different. It was chintzy, boorish, brazen. It was an example of him trying to get sympathy for the shutdown when he was the one who had triggered it.
