You know you screwed up online when even brands start clowning on you. That generally means your goof was so obvious and universally maligned that even risk-averse global corporations feel you’re an easy and uncontroversial target of scorn.
If Joe Biden has been described as a “gaffe-machine” Donald Trump is more like a gaffe machine gun. His latest, greatest hit was greeting the championship-winning Clemson football team with a shockingly lame spread of cold hamburgers from Burger King, Wendy’s, and McDonalds along with Domino’s pizza.
The fast food wasn’t just down to Trump’s penchant for disgusting processed meats but rather due to the ongoing government shutdown affecting even White house kitchen and waitstaff.
Trump bragged about his fast food solution, absolutely butchering the spelling of the word “hamburger” in the process, which he spelled ‘hamberders.”
Burger King couldn’t resist a snarky reply, noting that they were all out of “hamberders.”
due to a large order placed yesterday, we're all out of hamberders.— Burger King (@BurgerKing) January 15, 2019
just serving hamburgers today.
Like the Clemson players probably were after crapping their brains out the tweet left Burger King’s fans hungry for more.

The fast-food chain to whom you just gave a bunch of free publicity is dragging you for being an illiterate moron. https://t.co/wfnNp8COpm
The memes were merciless and swift.

I'd like 600 hamberders, 300 freedom fries, 300 covfefe's, and a diet coke with extra ice. pic.twitter.com/CdLgOymf4E— Mark Hittinger (@MarkHittinger) January 15, 2019

Here’s a video of the whole super-sized fiasco.
Trump served fast food during the Clemson University football team's White House visit because of the shutdown. He said it was either that or have the First Lady make them salads. pic.twitter.com/Aw67Tb9TgU— NowThis (@nowthisnews) January 15, 2019
