Trump fetes North Dakota State with fast food

Trump fetes North Dakota State with fast food

On Monday, the North Dakota State University Bison, the Football Championship Subdivision winners, dined as well as Clemson did, feasting on McDonald's and Chick-Fil-A during a trip to the White House. As noted by the Washington Post, despite all of the fast food offerings, the team did go on to have lunch at the Capitol.

We've been through this before, but football players don't get to be elite athletes or large humans by eating fast food. Quarterback Easton Stick threw five touchdown passes, including two to Darrius Shepherd, who was named Most Outstanding Player with five catches and 125 yards.

"When you play with passion and love ... and relentlessly reach for excellence, nothing is impossible", President Trump said.

"Somebody better draft him".

During the visit, Stick also presented Trump, the 45th President of the United States, with a custom "45" jersey. "Lots of hamburgers, lots of pizza".

Trump Calls Mueller Investigation 'Bulls***' in Longest Speech of His Presidency
Interrupted several times by audience chants of "U.S.A., U.S.A.", Trump sought to suggest that Democrats are shifting to the radical left.

You may remember that Trump hosted Clemson in January at the White House to celebrate the Tigers' 44-16 national championship win over Alabama.

The visit occurred in the middle of a government shutdown over funding for Mr. Trump's border wall, so much of the White House catering staff was furloughed. Trump said he paid for the food himself.

"For me, personally, the No. 1 thing is just the team being together", Entz said. "It's all American stuff".

The grub came from Chick-fil-A, McDonald's and Domino's, and team members were lauded by the president before they dug in.
