Trump just went off on a ridiculous tangent about fast food and football players

President Trump unleashed another one of his freewheeling, lie-drenched rants today. Speaking outside the White House, he ranged from topic to topic, including a strange stretch where he talked about the national champion Clemson University Tigers’ looming visit to the White House.


Trump jabbered at first, saying that the Tigers were going to visit, before offering them faint praise and then repeating once again that they’d be visiting the White House. He then struck on the topic of the food the administration intends to serve the players.

“And I think we’re going to serve McDonald’s, Wendy’s, and Burger Kings [sic] with some pizza. I really mean it. It’ll be interesting. And I would think that that’s their favorite food. So we’ll see what happens. But they’re coming tonight, the national champions, subject to the weather,” he said, sounding even more senile than usual.

How or why serving fast food to the players could be”interesting” is anyone’s guess. His use of the phrase “I really mean it” is especially weird, because there’s no reason why people would assume he didn’t really mean it in the first place. Why did he feel the need to assure that he’s serious?

Reportedly, Trump is such a noted fan of McDonald’s because he’s paranoid that someone might try to poison him and he’s convinced that the premade food, served up by people who don’t know he’ll be eating therein advance is safer than other options. Whether the decision to serve fast food to the champions is tied to these idiosyncratic fears is unclear.


The bizarre fast food tangent quickly went viral, as Twitter users flocked to mock the president.

At another point in his borderline incoherent comments, Trump claimed that Democrats have been secretly reaching out to him to voice support for his continued shutdown of the federal government. Given his long track record of demonstrated mendacity and a habit of spinning such anecdotes out of thin air, the most likely explanation is that Trump is lying. Democrats simply don’t support his wall because it’s a terrible, wasteful proposal.

Not surprisingly, Trump was confronted about the bombshell report from The New York Times this weekend, in which it was revealed that the FBI opened an inquiry into President Trump because they were concerned that he might actually be working secretly for Russia. Today, Trump smeared FBI agents as “dirty cops” and slammed the investigation. His claims are as unconvincing as ever.

These clips make it clearer than ever that our president is quickly unraveling. He’s not up to the job, and as more damning revelations about his criminal behavior emerge expect more unhinged performances like today’s.
