Burger King mocks Trump over his ‘hamberders’ tweet as the internet erupts with memes

Fast food giant Burger King is trolling President Donald Trump over his Twitter flub in which he called ‘hamburgers’, ‘hamberders’. 

‘Great being with the National Champion Clemson Tigers last night at the White House,’ Trump tweeted Tuesday. ‘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!’ 

Hours later, Burger King mocked the president’s typo in a tweet: ‘Due to a large order placed yesterday, we’re all out of hamberders. Just serving hamburgers today.’ 

The internet is exploding over the president’s blunder, Burger King’s snarky response and the fact that Trump, a self-proclaimed billionaire, ordered junk food to celebrate championship-winning athletes.

Trump announced during the Monday night event that he had ‘1,000 hamburgers’ delivered to the East Room, where chicken nuggets and pizza were also served, to celebrate the Clemson Tigers’ College Football National Championship win. 

The president also joked that he nearly fed the hungry football players salads prepared by the first lady – but decided to serve up the greasy favorites instead. 

People on social media expressed their disdain that the president would serve the athletes fast food. 

Author Franklin Leonard tweeted: ‘Trump, a supposed billionaire, thinks buying out a McDonalds to celebrate world class athletes is high class stunting.’    

After Trump’s tweet and Burger King’s subsequent response, the memes came rolling in. 

‘When I was a kid, I hated when Mom made dinner with Hamberder Hempler,’ Bret Saunders wrote on Twitter. 

Others likened Trump’s typo to his now-infamous ‘covfefe’ tweet. 

‘Great start to the day. A hamberder and covfefe,’ one person tweeted with a photo of coffee and a burger. 

Another man noted the distance between the ‘D’ and ‘E’, suggesting the president went to great lengths to make the typo.

Trump paid for the smorgasbord himself rather than postpone the event because White House caterers aren’t at work during a partial government shutdown.

‘We ordered American fast food. Paid for by me. Lots of hamburgers, lots of pizza, I think they’d like it better than anything we could give,’ Trump told reporters as he arrived at the White House after a speech to farmers in Louisiana. 

‘We have some very large people that like eating, so I think we’re gonna have a little fun.’ 

The president said in remarks to the team: ‘I had a choice: do we have no food for you, because we have a shutdown, or do we give you some little quick salads that the first lady will make along with the second lady, they’ll make some salads. And I said, you guys aren’t into salads.’ 

Trump explained that this was 'great American food' for the football players and when asked for his personal favorite, he said he liked all the brands

He opted for Big Macs, Quarter Pounders and other fast-food staples. ‘We have everything that I like, that you like,’ he told players to laughter. ‘And I know no matter what we did, there’s nothing that you could have that’s better than that.’

‘I wanted to see, so it was piled up a mile high, I just wanted to see what was left. I saw it at the beginning. How much he is left back there? How much?’ he asked. ‘None,’ a woman in the audience informed him. 

President Trump later teased in his remarks that the players ‘wiped out more food than any human has ever seen before’ after revealing that he first considered having his wife Melania ‘along with the second lady make some salads’ for the players.
