No, Trevor Lawrence did not call the fast food that was served to Clemson at the White House the “best meal we ever had.”
The Clemson quarterback shot down a graphic that was circulating on social media Tuesday. The graphic included a quote purportedly from the freshman quarterback that exuberantly complimented the fast food spread that was provided by President Donald Trump.
I never said this by the way… I don’t know where it came from.
However the trip to the White House was awesome! https://t.co/dhYzZpSNUD

The fake quote trashed “coastal elite media” and “bloggers.” Anyone with a brain and some critical thinking knowledge could have deduced that its chances of authenticity were slim-to-none. But that didn’t stop the quote from taking off the morning after Clemson’s visit from some pandering Twitter accounts.
Lawrence quote-tweeted the lame Cloyd Rivers account before the account deleted the graphic of the tweet after Lawrence called out the lying.
TMZ did catch up with Lawrence Monday night where he also said the White House visit was awesome.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump personally paid for the fast food that was served to Clemson because of the government shutdown. The Washington Post did a breakdown of all of the food that was served to Clemson and estimated the cost of the dinner to be at approximately $3,000.
