Besides being a politician and the U.S. President, Donald Trump proved he is also capable to stay not so serious and sometimes, likes to show off his sense of humor. Especially, she enjoys making jokes about his wife, Melania Trump.
During the visit of the Clemson Tigers to the White House after the College Football National Championship, Trump made a really weird joke about buying hamburgers instead of having the First Lady make salads for players.
While giving his speech, Trump claimed he almost gave Clemson football players salads, cooked by Melania, but at the last minute decided to purchase hamburgers.
He connected such a complicated situation with the food with the U.S. government shutdown. There was no staff available, so he had to order fast food or make Melania cook for players:
So I had a choice. Do we have no food for you? Because we have a shutdown, 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, Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott, do I go out and send out for about 1,000 hamburgers. Big Macs. So we actually did that.
Even though Trump most likely thinks this joke was very funny, people seem not to like it at all. According to Twitter users' reactions, we can say they think the joke was rather sexist. Others claim Melania has never stepped foot in a kitchen.
The joke Trump made about Melania and Karen Pence making salads for the Clemson players was so sexist. Caveman.— Matt Murphy (@MattMurph24) 15 January 2019
No doubt Melania doesn't cook salad.— John Gibbs (@JohnGib28171194) 15 January 2019

During the visit of Clemson Tigers to the White House, Trump had to think himself about feeding players, and made a joke about Melania making salads for them. But it seems, people didn’t like the President’s sense of humor.
