As we told you earlier, President Trump hosted the North Dakota State, who won the FCS Championship in January. Just like Trump did when he hosted the Clemson Tigers, the lunch spread was fast food — this time, McDonalds and Chick-fil-A:
Uh oh! Trump serving up another fast food spread at the WH sparks fresh round of McTriggering https://t.co/FvUIs4NnFi

The New York Daily News tried to turn the story into one of Trump fumbling the ball again, remembering the Clemson luncheon this way:
Remember when Clemson players were insulted after Trump promised them a meal and gave them fast food?
Woops–he did it again.https://t.co/MAbuXyoFdz

No. Because they were never insulted.

That seemed to be the general consensus at the time, but now the NYDN remembers it differently, even though the story doesn’t offer any examples of Clemson players saying they were “insulted.”
were any of them insutled? https://t.co/aSLFD4hG48

No one was insulted. Well except the perpetually outraged TDS journalists. Speaking of journalists, on an unrelated note, 1000s of them lost their job the past few weeks, the reason remains a mystery.
