Last night, President Trump hosted the Clemson Tigers’ football team, winners of the National Championship, at the White House in the midst of the government shutdown. Trump treated the athletes to… fast food that he generously paid for out of his own pocket.
Wendy’s, McDonald’s, and Domino’s pizza were all served on silver platters to the team:

Always “fiscally responsible” when it comes to his own money, it seems Trump might have taken advantage of McDonald’s 2-for-$5 menu:
I just realized all the stuff Trump got for Clemson from McDonald's was on their current 2 for $5 menu and I'm wheezing pic.twitter.com/kf3nnT7kO3— TGB (@twitersgoodboy) January 15, 2019
Obviously, the lavish feast got mocked on Twitter:

This looks like Batman came up with a plan to catch the Hamburglar pic.twitter.com/rb7IKwXM8P— official pixelated boat facebook account (@pixelatedboat) January 14, 2019
But Trump was still pretty proud of himself:
He’s prouder of these hamburgers than he is of his adult sons https://t.co/tQunBaeuoH— Jess Dweck (@TheDweck) January 15, 2019
So proud he decided to brag on Twitter about both the fast food and the fact that he paid for it. But because Trump is a few fries short of a combo meal, he somehow managed to misspell “hamburgers” making this officially the stupidest thing that’s ever happened:
And that got ridiculed too:
i gave hamberders to the football guys and they liked the berders and then they ated the berders and now there’s no berders ‘cuz they got ated the berders and i am a super Party Guy (me!!!!!) https://t.co/uD9xIZze5c— Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) January 15, 2019

due to a large order placed yesterday, we're all out of hamberders.— Burger King (@BurgerKing) January 15, 2019
just serving hamburgers today.
Someone eventually noticed the error, deleted the tweet, and reposted a correct one (as though the spelling mistake were the only embarrassing thing about this entire debacle). But the damage had been done.
Fixed it. You can't put the hamberder back in the berder bag. pic.twitter.com/J8o1QMAimA— The Late Show (@colbertlateshow) January 15, 2019
Guess his brain shutdown along with the government.
