We’re at a point where not only does a major dictionary find reason to troll the notorious liar-in-chief President Donald Trump, but so does a major fast food chain. After he incorrectly identified their major product as “hamberders,” Burger King made a sarcastic announcement that they were all out of whatever the president had named, but they still have hamburgers.

As they put it:

‘due to a large order placed yesterday, we’re all out of hamberders. just serving hamburgers today.’

The order of hamburgers that Trump had mentioned was part of a bizarre fast food buffet that unfolded at the White House Monday night in honor of the college football national championship team the Clemson Tigers. Thanks to the ongoing partial federal government shutdown, most of the White House staff isn’t on duty, so in place of in-house food, the administration ordered large amounts of fast food from chains including Burger King, Wendy’s, McDonald’s, and Domino’s Pizza. Trump said he paid for the food himself, which isn’t exactly cause for praise of the president although he might think as much.

As Trump put it in a Tuesday morning tweet trumpeted to the world with the misspelling fixed:

‘Great being with the National Champion Clemson Tigers last night at the White House. Because of the Shutdown I served them massive amounts of Fast Food (I paid), over 1000 hamburgers etc. Within one hour, it was all gone. Great guys and big eaters!’

Trump has had a notoriously hard time managing something as seemingly simple as hosting a championship team at the White House in the past. In a huff over some players saying they weren’t interested in coming, the administration completely uninvited the Philadelphia Eagles after they won last year’s Super Bowl. Ironically enough, although Trump has long established his disdain for NFL players who peacefully protest during the national anthem — none of the Eagles had even participated. His move was just that much about politics.

He was no doubt fond of the change of pace in welcoming the Tigers, and was photographed with the fast food buffet like you’d imagine a parent would grin over their child.

TV writer Jess Dweck quipped of photographic coverage of the moment:

‘This is the news photo that would make a returning time traveler realize they fucked something up’

As for the Tigers themselves, video has circulated of the players seeming astonished that they were actually at the White House being served fast food. One said they thought the president telling reporters earlier in the day that they’d provide fast food was a joke.

The whole debacle serves as a sideshow to the real main course of current American politics — the government shutdown. Underneath the facade of the utter ridiculousness of a fast food buffet at the White House are large numbers of workers who’ve been sent home indefinitely because Trump refuses to sign any further funding without billions of dollars for a border wall to address a crisis that’s definitely not there no matter what he says.
