I suppose Clemson did not want to politicize their victory and went to the White House but i would not set foot there as long as 45 was in power. Had they not gone we wouldnt’ve seen this absurdity though so… success?

One of the talking points going around the Trumpian commentsphere right now is “actually that’s what the Clemson athletes requested” (which is obviously a baseless lie).

Oh, very well.

Is it time to get back to the condemning of the treason and collusion and so on yet?

i’m pretty fluent in southern accents, and i’m not sure i hear “it’s absurd!” there – to me, it might be “…Sir!” sort of like “excuse me, Sir!” because the camera guy came up behind him and he turned around and suddenly realized he was in the camera guy’s way.

Under ordinary circumstances an invitation to the White House should easily qualify as one of the highlights of any college athlete’s life.

This is not the face of someone experiencing such a moment.

It’s too bad the president doesn’t own a hotel with a fancy restaurant in DC where he could treat them to a swanky meal instead of us having elected a genuinely poor man of the people.

Driving times according to Google Maps:

Nearest Wendy’s to White House = 21 minutes
Nearest Burger King to White House = 18 minutes
Nearest McDonald’s to White House = 10 minutes

Trump Hotel to White House = 7 minutes

I love the part where one of the students picks up one of the burgers, decides it’s too cold or something, and then puts it back on the sad pile.

It would have been just as fine if he just let his arm and hand go limp and let the paper-wrapped rejection fall to the ground with a weak thump. No one would have cared. The concepts of “respect”, or even “food” itself, had no meaning this day.

The President is serving proper steamed hams! Please ignore the aurora borealis in the other room.
