Jimmy Kimmel Jokes That Trump’s Fast Food Feast Is What You’d See In ‘Bird Box’

America’s Clemson Tigers were recently invited to the White House for a celebratory dinner to honor their athletic achievements.
What some had thought to be a joke actually became reality when the team was greeted with a sight that has been likened to a scene from 1994 film Richie Rich.
In the center of the White House’s state dining room was a long table filled with a scrumptious serving of what Trump described as “great American food.” The footballers were treated to McDonald’s ‘Quarter Pounders’ and ‘Big Macs’, as well as Domino’s pizza and Burger King.
In a video shared to Twitter, one Clemson Tiger player can be overheard saying, “I thought it was a joke,” referencing the US President’s declaration that he would be treating the champions to fast food.
The internet has had much to say about the event, from comical memes to hilarious photoshopped edits, including television host Jimmy Kimmel.
“Of all the crazy things Trump said and did over the weekend, this might be the craziest,” Kimmel said during Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday night. Trump told reporters, “I think we are going to serve McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Burger King’s with some pizza. I really mean it.”
“This to me is the best picture of the year,” Kimmel said, staring at the image of Trump looking proud with hundreds of burgers on display. “This is the image you see when you take off your blindfold in Bird Box. It looks like a super villain who set up a trap to capture himself,” he joked.
