The Clemson Tigers visited the White House on Monday to celebrate their National Championship win over Alabama earlier this month.
Instead of an elegant food spread, as one might expect when visiting the White House, Clemson had a much different spread waiting for them.
Donald Trump announced on Monday that, because of the government shutdown, he was paying for the “event to be catered with some of everyone’s favorite fast foods.”
McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Burger King and pizza were brought in and placed on silver platters.

Naturally, Twitter had all of the jokes after seeing pictures of Trump with the food all set up.

Now we know that Trump is single handedly keeping the Filet-O-Fish on the McDonald’s menu https://t.co/r5y6zIR5Ur

Alabama losing by 28 points makes a lot more sense when you realize that this would have been their reward. https://t.co/aIFyhUCqNj

I'm pretty sure at some point in my life, I've said I wanted McDonalds for my wedding reception….Now that I have a visual of what it would look like…I regret it, deeply. pic.twitter.com/htK0icku4Y

Whoppers by candlelight.

Me, a kid: I want to be president and have a monster pile of burgers every meal

Perhaps the best comparison out there, though, was when people realized how similar the scene at the White House was to the dinner scene from Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.

To quote 2006's Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby: "Dear Lord Baby Jesus…we thank you so much for this bountiful harvest of Domino's, KFC and the always delicious Taco Bell." https://t.co/cTfFni5iew
