Burger King repays President Trump’s generous free publicity by trolling him

How about a little covfefe to go with your hamberder?

Fast Food giant Burger King had a little fun with a typo in a tweet from President Donald Trump, where the president misspelled hamburger, typing “hamberders” instead.

And considering Trump chose Burger King along with competitors McDonald’s and Wendy’s when feeding a room full of football players, giving the burger chain lots of “free” publicity, surely there was no malice involved.

(Although, should you consider the following tweet shade, Trump was photographed chowing on McDonald’s french fries while on the campaign trail in 2016.)

From Burger King’s official Twitter account: “[D]ue to a large order placed yesterday, we’re all out of hamberders. just serving hamburgers today.”

The college football national champion Clemson Tigers visited the White House on Monday and because of the partial government shutdown brought on by Democrats who refuse to budge on securing the southern border, included among the federal workers furloughed are the chefs who work at the Executive Mansion.

President Trump remedied the situation by ordering out for “great American food,” to include burgers and pizza. A big fan of fast food, the president said he’d think “that’s their favorite food.”

Oh, and to silence Democrats and their media allies, who complain every time he turns around, Trump paid for the fast food smorgasbord out of his own pocket.

“We ordered American fast food, paid for by me. Lots of hamburgers, lots of pizza,” Trump told reporters Monday evening, according to Fox News. “We have some very large people that like eating, so I think we’re going to have a little fun.”

And while Trump’s critics ridiculed him over the menu choice, it appeared to be real popular with the players according to a tweet from the president — which is where the typo occurred while spelling hamburger.

(The tweet has since been corrected.)

“Great being with the National Champion Clemson Tigers last night at the White House. Because of the Shutdown I served them massive amounts of Fast Food (I paid), over 1000 hamburgers etc. Within one hour, it was all gone. Great guys and big eaters!” the corrected tweet reads.


Of course, when it comes to Trump, every flaw is seized on as part of campaign to convince America that he is unfit for office and a danger to national security — this being the same crown that sits on its hands when Barack Obama speaks of 57 states or fails to properly pronounce corps.

Never mind that not only is Trump a billionaire, he managed to get elected to the most powerful office in the world — something keyboard warriors like alleged Republicans like Rick Wilson seem especially bitter about.

Either way, the Burger King tweet proved to be a major source of entertainment for bored Americans with too much time on their hands and few options to productively spend that time.

Looking past hate-filled responses, here a sampling from Twitter:
