    Just get a few Fox personalities in a room and have them yell "BUT, HILLARY!!" repeatedly. It'll only take 5 minutes, tops.

    Because this is America, there's no fewer than three McDonald's franchises within a few blocks of the White House.

    I like to think they had an aid drive to all three scrambling to get enough food, and I REALLY like to think it was a senior cabinet official. I just picture Bolton demanding extra sauce packets as they surprise a random McDonalds with a hilarious order of 100 burgers without any type of notice. I bet it took at least three or four attempts at the drive through window before they were taken seriously.

    In my head, I just picture Cadillac One stuck trying to make the corner of the drive through lane without mounting the curb, while the fast food employee continually shouts "SIR, PLEASE DRIVE UP TO THE WINDOW!" through the order box

    The fact that serving fast food at a white house dinner is somehow a big issue is rather fucking nauseating to say the least.

    I don't think it's a big issue, it's just hilarious.

    It perfectly encapsulates this administration.

    No one would have even known without Trump bragging and lying about it, in a hilariously poorly written/spelled tweet at that. This is an Onion article come to life. :lol:

    It perfectly encapsulates the media and outrage culture, sure. Fact checking figures of speech is pretty strange.

    Outrage? As in outrageous laughter? :lol:

    Just to be clear, him bragging about buying fast food and spelling hamburger wrong is a figure of speech?

    Just as an observation, I don't think the Micky D's9 on 17th, or the one at 13th and NY, have drive-throughs. I didn't know of a third location, as I thought the one at 14th and K was closed.

    Jokes on you. White House now has a food court with McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's, and Pei Wei, movie theater, and arcade.

    I feel like this is something someone would walk into the 'restaurant' and order as take-out, not something you'd shout through an order box. :p

    Hardly. Speaking for the left, I think the whole thing is hilarious and I can't think of a better metaphor for the Trump administration than a whole bunch of 2-for-$5-menu items piled up on a silver platter. :lol:

    What we ARE outraged by is the amount of evidence suggesting collusion between senior Trump campaign members and Russian agents, but you don't want to talk about that, do you. :)

    :lol:

    Splitting hairs, but Clinton actually wasn't part of that decision (it was approved by a panel of representatives from the State Department, the Treasury, Defense Department, Commerce department, Energy Department, Homeland Security, and a few others, and Clinton was not representing the State Department, and her delegate claims she had no role in the decision), and the person who made the vast majority donations to the Clinton Foundation after the sale had sold the entirety of his stake in the company that bought the uranium several years before the deal, so he wouldn't have made a cent on the transaction. The whole thing doesn't hold together under any scrutiny. :lol:

    The blowjob totally happened though. :lol:

    The left really have no place to laugh about anything considering that apparently hacking is as easy as selecting a random word on a screen and you get four attempts to do so. That was your favorite news source's favorite way to explain Russian hacking, a fucking video game.

    I myself cannot wait until they run a news story about deforestation and show a bunch of people in Minecraft punching trees.
