Critics of President Donald Trump were quite unhappy with his recent decision to serve fast food to the championship Clemson Tigers football team when the group visited the White House.
Trump said he personally paid for the athletes’ food — which included McDonald’s and Wendy’s — and that the players seemed to enjoy the feast and their visit to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
But the anti-Trumpers, especially his Hollywood critics, have declared, rather incredibly, that the serving of fast food at the White House has risen to the level of a “national emergency” and that it’s further evidence the man should not be president.
“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 1,000 hamburgers etc. Within one hour, it was all gone. Great guys and big eaters!” Trump tweeted about the event.
Check out this list of stars who had the biggest meltdowns over the White House’s recent spread.
1.) Cardi B. The 26-year-old rapper is an outspoken critic of the president and actually said if she had visited the White House and been served fast food, she would have assaulted Trump.
“If you gonna fly out a team that bust they a** practicing – you gonna fly them out to give them some cold motherf***** french fries, that is disrespectful, and that’s like spitting in a n****’s face,” Cardi B (pictured above left) said in a video posted to social media.
She added, “Like I swear to God, if I was there, I would have punched the motherf***** — I would have motherf***** punched the wig out of Trump, bro.”
(There are currently no plans for Cardi B to visit the White House.)
2.) George Takei. The “Star Trek” actor was so triggered by this event that he called the whole thing a “national trauma.”
“The White House dinner for the Clemson Tigers summed up our national trauma perfectly: An isolated, self-proclaimed billionaire, ever stingy when paying the tab, forces real heroes to listen to him drone on senselessly, making this about him while their food goes cold and soggy,” the actor wrote on Twitter.
3.) Michael Strahan. NFL Hall of Famer and “Good Morning America” cohost Michael Strahan (above right) said he thought the Clemson Tigers football team deserved more than just fast food. Upset by Trump’s decision, Strahan even offered to take the team out for lobster and caviar in New York City.
“We gonna take care of you,” Strahan said. “We gonna give you the proper meal that you deserve because that was one great game, a great accomplishment.”

4.) Rosie O’Donnell. The comedian — who recently said she believes Trump will be arrested before the 2020 presidential election — had a simple but immature response to the Tigers’ White House visit.
O’Donnell posted a picture of Trump with the table of fast food in front of him to Twitter — with showed Trump photoshopped to look like the Hamburgler, a famous character McDonald’s used in the past to promote its food.

O’Donnell was so proud of the tweet she “pinned” it, meaning it will be the first tweet people see when they go to her account.
5.) Ayesha Curry. The wife of basketball star Steph Curry has two successful barbecue restaurants — and doesn’t seem to be a fan of fast food. “[I] will gladly feed the Clemson Tigers any day. A real feast and celebration. No 10 cent dipping sauces on silver platters,” she wrote on Twitter.

The dig at Trump was in response to another user’s mentioning that Steph Curry skipped a White House visit — and jokingly suggesting that food may have been the reason.
