Donald Trump champions dinner analysis

Clemson served fast food

We’re a bit late on this, but the Clemson football team went to The White House to celebrate its national championship victory with President Donald Trump. The Tigers were served McDonald’s, Burger King and Wendy’s because the kitchen staff is out as the government shutdown continues.

The players and coaches had fun with it, and I’m generally okay with a fast food buffet for college students, but I do have a few issues that are worth considering. Let’s break it down.

It’s okay to like things

First off, the reaction to this is further proof that everybody hates everybody in this country, and it doesn’t need to be that way. No matter your political background, can’t we all just agree that fast food tastes delicious? This should be something that unites us as a country. You can have your preferences as to which restaurant is the best, but I cannot remember a bad experience with fast food.

If you need proof, go ahead and check out Deceptive Speed LIVE on Periscope or Facebook Live. The only body part you’ll be able to see is my head, and it could not be more circular. Of course I’ve spent tons of money on McDonald’s hamburgers just like any true American has.

Fast food is incredibly tasty, and don’t let anyone get in your way of that belief. I try not to eat fast food very often, as I continue Operation Be Less of a Fat Guy in 2019.

Where is the variety?

If you want to be angry about anything in this situation, it’s this. We can certainly do better than three restaurants that specialize in hamburgers and fries. Oh, and Filet-O-Fish sandwiches of course. If you’re going to McDonald’s for seafood, please leave right now and never interact with us again. We’re trying to build a community here, but we do not want crazy people on our site.

When doing research for this article, some websites said Domino’s Pizza was thrown in as well, but none of my sources have been able to confirm this for me. If the rumors are true, I approve of the pizza addition.

Regardless, if I have the choice of picking three fast food restaurants for a championship dinner, I’m giving these fellas some options. I’m going McDonald’s, Chick-fil-A and Taco Bell. You get burgers, you get chicken, you get tacos. Three incredible foods to choose from. Let your guests decide what they want to eat.

Just eat it

When you’re at The White House, you eat whatever is given to you. Spending even a few minutes at that place and meeting the president would be one of the highlights of my life. And if I ever have the privilege (it just took me four tries to spell privilege correctly) to be invited, I’d eat anything handed to me without any question.

I hate black olives, but if Mr. or Mrs. President rolls out a meal centered around the black olive, gosh almighty those will find their way into my tummy.

By the way Don, I’m assuming you’re reading this, but my email is Please reach out if you’d like to have the Deceptive Speed staff over sometime.

What would I go with?

If I shocked the world and did something productive with my life and was given the choice of what I’d like to eat with the president, I’ve narrowed it down to two choices.

If I’m meeting the president from mid-September through November, we’re getting brats, we’re getting hamburgers and we’re getting beer. And I wouldn’t even want the venue to be at The White House. We’re going to the nearest college football tailgate.

We could be settling in for a Maryland vs. Rutgers game in a battle between Big Ten wannabees, but that’s fine by me. Tailgating with the President of the United States on a Saturday afternoon in the fall would be an incredible experience.

For any other time of the year, the answer is beer and wings. Keep it simple.
