Along with winning the national championship, the Clemson Tigers now have another story they’ll never forget – and one people who may not remember this moment probably won’t believe. The team visited the White House to celebrate their second title in three years, and President Donald Trump served them at least $900 worth of fast food from McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Burger King.
Some of the Tigers loved it, including star quarterback Trevor Lawrence and coach Dabo Swinney, who looked like he was having the time of his life eating fast food off of fine china.
But plenty of people – some players included – were stunned that this was the real dinner the White House was serving. And some were actually so appalled by what was probably cold fast food that they offered to treat Clemson to a real champions’ feast.
So far, here are the people who want to show Clemson how they should really be celebrating the national championship. Maybe the Tigers will actually accept one of these offers too.
1. Michael Strahan
The Super Bowl champ and Hall of Famer turned broadcaster invited Clemson to Good Morning America in New York for a “great meal,” and he offered to foot the bill.
“Whoever can make it, we’ll hook you up with lobster. … Whatever you want, we’re going to take care of you. We’re going to give you the proper meal that you deserve because that was one great game, a great accomplishment.”
2. Ayesha Curry
The successful chef and wife of Steph Curry has two barbecue restaurants – one in San Francisco and one in Houston – and a cookbook, so she’d surely serve something spectacular to the Tigers.
The Migos rapper invited Clemson to the headquarters of his group’s label, Quality Control Music, in Atlanta.
4. Nick Kokonas
While the restaurant executive and author says he doesn’t care for college football, he invited the Tigers to go to the Windy City to see “what an actual celebration dinner should be.”
