Michael Strahan wants the Clemson Tigers to know that he remembers his college football days, and that he thinks that the team would rather chow down on some lobster, filet mignon, and caviar than a Happy Meal in a cardboard box. The Good Morning America host said that he wants the team to know that he’s got their backs — and the check — if they’d like to come up to New York City.
TMZ Sports says that Strahan has extended an invitation to the winning Clemson team, and told them that he wasn’t too impressed by the pizza and burger party that Donald Trump threw them at the White House.
“I personally… I would like to invite the Clemson football team here for a great meal.”
Strahan did a shout-out to the team on Good Morning America, saying that whatever they would like to eat for dinner, it’s on him
“Whoever can make it, we’ll hook you up with lobster… whatever you want we’ll take care of you. We gonna give you the proper meal that you deserve because that was one great game, a great accomplishment.”
This is what you do when you have been through the struggle and you respect the dedication and comradery of these young men to win a national championship.— ΞLΞVΞNTH (@3L3V3NTH) January 16, 2019
Michael Strahan invites Clemson Tigers for "lobster and caviar" on Good Morning America
The former defensive end for the New York Giants wanted the players to know that he would be picking up the potential tab.
“It’s out of my pocket guys. I’ll pay for it. No problem.”
But while Michael Strahan makes healthy eating and time in the gym a priority, according to the Inquisitr, Donald Trump’s dream meal is from the McDonald’s menu — and he really doesn’t enjoy fancy food. He’s often stated that his ultimate dinner can be picked up at the drive-thru.
“[A Trump dinner] would include two Big Macs, two Fillet-O-Fish, and a chocolate malted.”
Trump likely meant no disrespect by ordering the fast food feast for the players — one which included Dominos Pizza for the Clemson Tigers — because he’s publicly shared that he would prefer a fast food burger any day to what they usually serve at fancy banquets and dinner parties.
Trump has also shared that he thinks that the cleanliness standard at fast food restaurants is much higher than random restaurants — closed kitchens where you never know what’s going on. Trump has also indicated that quick service restaurants can be reliable in terms of the product one can expect.
“I’m a very clean person. I like cleanliness, and I think you’re better off going there than maybe someplace that you have no idea where the food’s coming from. It’s a certain standard.”
