Without reference to Trump's personal taste, would somebody explain to me why the fare in view would be inappropriate for a college football team?

A victory party for athletes should be classier fare. Steak and lobster. Prime rib.

If I'm eating at the White House, I'm surely going to expect something better than fast food. And if someone who claims to be megarich is footing the bill, I'm going to expect something better than fast food. Hell, when my elementary school soccer team won a game, we at least got pizza.

eta: Those guys are serious athletes, and that's trash food.

Yeah, that's "everyone's working late and the boss ran out to buy everyone food" fare.

And even then, it'd probably be at least pizza.

1) It doesn't appear to be a sit-down affair. (Not a chair in sight.)
2) I am dubious of the ability of any football team to cope with lobster or eat without using their fingers. Nor would I trust them with anything better than chinette.
3) It's a meet and greet with a bunch of 20-somethings, not a state dinner. Bets they were in and out in 90 minutes.

I'll give you the point about lobster, but I guarantee you that college athletes don't need 90 minutes (or even 9 minutes) to polish off steak.

Ordinarily it would have been catered by the White House itself, but the shutdown means that there's no money to pay for it. In response, the President decided he'd pay for the food. And opted to buy that. They went with it because he cheaped the fuck out. It's tacky as fuck.

9 seconds if the steak is under 16 oz.

But it's still not a sit down dinner. It's a frat party. Thrown by the sophomore-in-chief.

Also, even the best fast food burger and fries is best no more than 10 minutes off of the counter. The sad thing is Trump should be good at the stupid ceremonial shit like this and is still a garbage person.

There's a great but probably apocryphal tale of Sergeant Schriver doing some advance work in West Virginia for one or other Kennedy chumming it up with the locals, mostly coal miners, and at one point telling the bartender "These guys are great. A round of beers for the house -- and I'll have a Courvoisier."

My recollection from the few meetings I went to there and the input of others who had worked there was that the place is insanely difficult to heat, as you'd expect from a 200-year-old building. Supposedly, Truman described it as "the crown jewel of the American penal system," because it's really, really uncomfortable to live in.

Forget Putin blackmailing Trump, I'm starting to think that Trump is blackmailing Pence. Because this is next-level insane yes-man loyalty.

Is there a tape of Pence with a male prostitute?
