Burger King Makes A Juicy Diss Out Of Trump’s Misspelled ‘Hamberders’ Tweet

It could have been a mix of his two loves—burgers and border walls—that compelled US president Donald Trump to tweet out his latest typo.
On Monday, Trump welcomed the Clemson Tigers, America’s college football champions, to the White House with a candlelit dinner of fast food galore. The internet scoffed at the menu served at this feast, which included items from McDonald’s, Wendy’s, and Burger King that had possibly gone cold. The event was even likened to a scene from 1994 live-action film Richie Rich.
POTUS later flogged the sneers by tweeting that the entire banquet of “over 1,000” burgers was ravished within an hour. His post was deleted even sooner, it seemed, as social media users had pointed out a typo in the way he spelled, “hamburgers.”
“Because of the shutdown, I served them massive amounts of fast food I paid,” Trump wrote. “Over 1,000 hamberders [sic]… Within one hour, it was all gone. Great guys and big eaters!”
The tweet was quickly deleted due to the error, and was reuploaded with the amended spelling. Unfortunately for Trump, things live on the internet forever. The oversight was captured in a screenshot—shown below—by Josh Sternberg, a tech editor at Adweek.
Burger King, one of the suppliers for Monday’s banquet, joined in to poke fun at the gaffe.
“Due to a large order placed yesterday, we’re all out of hamberders,” the fast food chain tweeted. “Just serving hamburgers today.”
Social media fans responded kindly to the joke. “According to the rules of the internet, the Burger King social media manager is now the new President of the United States,” said Twitter user Daniel Kelly.
“But where else can I get a flame-broiled ‘Wherper’?” asked ‘403Verboten’.
Others suggested that the restaurant change its social media handle to read, “Berder King.”
Trump might need to spell-check his future tweets, for he made a Whopper of a mistake overlooking this one.

Odd to see beef between Trump and Burger King given how many whoppers Trump tells each day.— CREDO Mobile (@CREDOMobile) January 15, 2019
I'd like 600 hamberders, 300 freedom fries, 300 covfefe's, and a diet coke with extra ice. pic.twitter.com/CdLgOymf4E— Mark Hittinger (@MarkHittinger) January 15, 2019
