You may have seen a quote from Clemson superstar quarterback Trevor Lawrence that was making its way across social media in which he called the White House's elegant feast of McDonald's and Wendy's "the best meal we ever had."
That would be news to Lawrence, as he never said that.
If you were one of the many on social media who tweeted or retweeted an obviously fake Trevor Lawrence quote about Clemson’s White House meal, the QB wants you to know the quote was fake.https://t.co/q1fgP6ViwU pic.twitter.com/4jx6i20PU2— Yahoo Sports College Football (@YahooSportsCFB) January 15, 2019
Lawrence himself asserts that the quote in question was completely made up. By who? that remains a mystery.
I never said this by the way... I don’t know where it came from.— Trevor Lawrence (@Trevorlawrencee) January 15, 2019
However the trip to the White House was awesome! https://t.co/dhYzZpSNUD
Lawrence and the 2019 College Football National Champion Tigers were given the traditional welcome to the White House by President Trump following their 44-16 domination of Alabama in the title game. Rather than go through all the effort of preparing a fancy meal like prime rib or fish, Trump opted for chain fast food burgers and chicken nuggets on his own dime during the government shutdown.
The pictures of Clemson football players grabbing McNuggets off of a platter that FDR probably ate steak off of are as surreal as it gets.

On the Menu: McDonald's, Wendys, and Burger King
