Burger King has no problem biting the hand that feeds them.
The Home of the Whopper savagely grilled President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning over his misspelled and since-deleted tweet about Monday’s dinner at the White House with Clemson Tigers football team.
“Due to a large order placed yesterday, we’re all out of hamberders,” the chain said in a tweet from its verified account. “Just serving hamburgers today.”

Trump was the subject of a slew of social media mockery when, in attempt to play up his generosity by splurging on the fast food spread himself, wrote, “Great being with the National Champion Clemson Tigers last night at the White House. Because of the Shutdown I served them massive amounts of Fast Food (I paid), over 1000 hamberders etc. Within one hour, it was all gone. Great guys and big eaters!”
In addition to Burger King, the meal included items from McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Domino’s Pizza … none of those companies have chimed in as of yet.
