Celebrity chef and cookbook author Ayesha Curry, wife of Golden State Warriors player Stephen Curry, wants to have the national football champions of Clemson University over for a "real feast" following President Trump's fast food banquet at the White House, which offered the players a helping of Wendy's hamburgers, Big Macs, and Domino's Pizza.
According to SF Gate, Curry's invitation followed one Twitter user's joke about her husband not attending the White House-sponsored shindig after the Golden State Warriors won the last two NBA Finals.
"No wonder why @StephenCurry30 didn't want to go," the user tweeted. "I'd much rather eat whatever @ayeshacurry is cooking any day too."
Curry invited the Clemson Tigers to her restaurant, International Smoke, located in both San Franciso and Houston.
"@eatatsmoke will gladly feed the Clemson Tigers any day," she tweeted. "A real feast and celebration. No 10 cent dipping sauces on silver platters."
Former NFL player and television host Michael Strahan and Migos rapper Quavo have both made similar offerings. Former NFL player Reggie Bush recently blasted President Trump's fast food banquet as being "disrespectful."
“Just when you think you’ve seen it all, @ClemsonFB you guys deserve better you are world champs and this is the honor you receive from our nations leader!?" Bush tweeted. "This is disrespectful on so many levels, just a huge slap in the face after that kind of performance! SMH!"
He later added, "Honestly if I lived in DC I would have taken that whole team to dinner at a nice restaurant after seeing this! What a joke!"
The president told reporters upon returning from his trip to New Orleans that the meal was meant to be "a little fun."
"We ordered American fast food, paid for by me. Lots of hamburgers, lots of pizza," Trump said. "We have some very large people that like eating, so I think we’re going to have a little fun."
Later, President Trump told the team he thought it was "great American food" to treat them out of his own pocket due to the government shutdown.
"I had a choice. Do we have no food for you, because we have a shutdown?" Trump told the team. "Or do we give you some little quick salads that the first lady will make, along with, along with the second lady. They'll make some salads. And I said, 'You guys aren't into salads. Or do I go out ... do I go out and send out for about 1,000 hamburgers, Big Macs.'"
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that since much of the White House staff has been furloughed via the government shutdown, "the president is personally paying for the event to be catered with some of everyone’s favorite fast foods."
According to TMZ Sports, Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence couldn't get enough of President Trump's offering of Big Macs, Wendy's hamburgers, pizza, and fries. In fact, he wants to do it again.
"It was awesome," Lawrence told TMZ while taking pictures with Clemson fans. "We had McDonalds and everything. It was good!"
When a fan asked Lawrence on how many times he plans on returning to the White House, the champion QB enthusiastically replied, "Hopefully, a few more!"
