Trump’s finest hour: The insane Clemson championship fast-food extravaganza gorgefest

Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation was perhaps finer. But nothing ever has or ever will better distill the essence of Trump’s appeal than this photo from the White House Twitter account, which rocketed across the Internet last night after Trump hosted Clemson football for dinner:

It’s all there. The presidential showman. The weirdly alluring mix of high taste, in the form of White House finery and candelabras, and low. The sheer gluttonous excess of that spread. And of course Honest Abe presiding over it all in portrait, deep in thought at the decadent-in-every-sense tableau before him. I joked last night that it looks like a scene from a Willy Wonka remake except with fast food instead of chocolate, but it’s only a half-joke. Trump is a Wonka character of a sort, a rich eccentric who understands better than most what the average person craves. Imagine winning a national championship in football, getting invited to the White House to meet the president, and arriving to find an all-you-can-eat banquet of the tastiest slop concocted by the world’s fast-food industry laid out on silver platters. It’s an American kid’s fantasy come to life. I’ve never liked him more.

The only thing missing is women in bikinis. And you know if it was up to Trump they would have been there too.

Ironically, it never would have happened if not for the shutdown. The White House would have put out a traditional spread for the team but much of the hospitality staff has been furloughed. So POTUS treated them to his favorite food instead:

The two greatest moments most of those kids will ever experience happened in the span of a week. One: Running Bama off the field in the national title game. Two: Booting in the White House bathroom after knocking down seven Big Macs.

Until this morning, when it tweeted out this video, the only photos of the event on the official White House Twitter account were of Trump posing with the food, none of him with the players. That’s one of many laughs to come out of this ridiculous spectacle:

There was no Taco Bell among the spread, interestingly. Although, as many people joked, maybe Trump will get Taco Bell to pay for it.

He threw in this line too when addressing the players. There’ll be some chin-pulling about this today in the media:

Sexist implications aside, the image of glamorous Melania Trump personally preparing a trough of salad for 100 football players is itself worth its weight in Quarter Pounders.

Anyway, condolences to Clemson players on their explosive diarrhea today.

Analysis: Trump’s epic fast food picture is perfectly Trumpian

On Monday night, President Donald Trump hosted the Clemson University football team at the White House to celebrate the team’s victory in the national college playoffs. Because of the government shutdown, Trump decided to pay, out of pocket, for a boatload worth of fast food to feed the players. And just before the team arrived, this photo was taken.

Theresa May faces catastrophic defeat in major Brexit vote as allies warn: ‘Winter is Coming’

Prime Minister Theresa May was facing defeat on a major Brexit vote in Parliament Tuesday, a defeat that could spell anything from no Brexit to a general election — as her allies took a page from “Game of Thrones” and warned: “Winter is Coming.”

No holds Barr-ed? Confirmation hearing begins with two Lindseys; Update: Barr pledges funding, time for Mueller

Westlake Legal Group barr-hearing No holds Barr-ed? Confirmation hearing begins with two Lindseys; Update: Barr pledges funding, time for Mueller william barr The Blog senate judiciary committee Robert Mueller Lindsey Graham donald trump confirmation hearings attorney general

Update, 11:00 am ET: It’s tough to make a case against Barr on the basis of Mueller with responses like these:

That’s about as contentious as it’s gotten in this opening round … so far, of course.

Original post follows …

To kick off the highest profile hearing since Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, two Lindsey Grahams showed up to lead the (non-?)circus. If you like “immigration Lindsey Graham,” the new chair promised Democrats, you’ll see him. No one much liked the “other” Lindsey, he acknowledged, not even himself — but Graham suggested that Democrats will see him too if they don’t approach Attorney General nominee William Barr with respect.

Sun’s getting real low, big guy … 

Barr then opened with a statement in which he claimed reluctance to take the job at all. At 68, the next step he and his wife wanted to take was retirement, Barr told the panel, not to return to a job he’d already done once. After suggesting other candidates, Barr reluctantly took the job because of the “current environment,” which could be perceived as a tacit criticism of the Trump administration or the Senate confirmation process. Or both:

That’s boilerplate for opening statements from Attorney General nominees. This is what Senate Democrats on the panel wanted to hear:

Barr emphasized that the conclusion of Robert Mueller’s investigation required as much transparency as the law allows. That may not be great news for the White House, depending on what Mueller includes in his report. Barr further testified that, despite unending criticism from Trump about Jeff Sessions, his decision to recuse on the Russia probe was “probably correct.” Barr also said that he’s known Mueller for 30 years and that he wouldn’t conduct a “witch hunt”:

Hmmmm. We’ll see if that earns Barr his first Twitter broadside from the Oval Office.

Still, it didn’t all go in one direction. For instance, this is what Senate Republicans wanted to hear:

At least at the start, Barr’s hearing launched smoothly with few surprises. Perhaps one would be a criticism of Sessions’ decision to press forward with prosecution of Sen. Bob Menendez, which Barr said rested on a “fallacious” legal theory. Barr’s even-handedness and straight-arrow approach will give Senate Democrats few opportunities to launch any effective attacks that will paint Barr as a Trump toady … not that a few of them won’t try anyway. Expect more fireworks later in the program from Spartacus and others who might be looking to launch presidential campaigns, too. If that happens, we’ll see Lindsey Graham’s evil twin make an appearance, no doubt.

Updates to this post will appear at the top in reverse chronological order.
