Donald Trump's 'hamberders' typo savagely roasted by Burger King

Trump said he paid for more than 1,000 "hamberders", and within one hour, they were all gone. "The reason we did this is because of the shutdown", the president explained.

Though the tweet has since been corrected to say "hamburger", Burger King, which was allegedly one of the fast-food restaurants Trump purchased food from for the dinner, was quick to hop on the original "hamberder" tweet. Clemson offensive lineman Matt Bockhorst tweeted "I mean you're not just gonna NOT eat the Big Macs stacked in a pile right?" The president also ordered plenty of Wendy's and Domino's pizza for the Tigers.

In a statement on Monday, the White House said that "the President is personally paying" for the fast food because he wanted to hold a "fun event to celebrate" the Clemson University Tigers' victory.

Burger King is known for its somewhat tongue-in-cheek approach to social media, so the fast food chain's latest stunt is no surprise.

"I want to see what's here when we leave, because I don't think it's going to be much", he said, before the players, dressed in dapper suits, flooded the room and piled their plates high.

Warriors ride record first quarter to rout of Nuggets
Denver knocked off Golden State 100-98 in Denver on October 21 thanks to Juancho Hernangomez blocking a layup at the buzzer. The latest example of this came on Tuesday evening, when the Dubs traveled to Denver to take on the first-place Nuggets.

The Clemson team's visit is its second since Trump took office.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney has nominated this season's undefeated Tigers as the best college team ever. Trump calls them a "great team, an unbelievable team".

Regardless, the reaction to the scene in the White House last night was noisy, with people appalled by the juxtaposition of McDonald's Sweet and Sour sauce sitting in fine silver bowls, and Trump standing beneath a portrait of Abraham Lincoln.

Trump has routinely sparred with professional athletes during his two years in office.

Some pointed out that nothing kept the fast food warm as it sat on the tables.
