Alinea invites Clemson Tigers for a PROPER dinner

White House invite the winning college football of the College Football Playoff national championship game last Monday, Clemson Tigers for their "favorite food" according to President Donald Trump. The Washington Post reported that earlier that day, “I think we are going to serve McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Burger King’s with some pizza. I really mean it,” Trump had said earlier in the day. “It will be interesting. I would think that’s their favorite food. So we’ll see what happens.”

The White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said (via The Washington Post’s Josh Dawsey), Trump was “personally paying for the event to be catered with some of everyone’s favorite fast foods” because the partial government shutdown meant that some of the White House staff who might have handled the catering for this type of event are on furlough.

Chef Nick Kokonas joins four other celebrities: GMA Host Michael Strahan, successful chef and wife of Steph Curry, Ayesha Curry, and Quavo from rap group Migos, that have called for a proper dinner after the White House.

Would you take the offer?
