Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence calls out fake Twitter quote praising fast food at White House

“President Trump got all our favorite foods, it was the best meal we ever had. Then we go and see the coastal elite media trashing it for not being organic vegan. We're football players, not bloggers. This was a perfect blue collar party”
Lawrence wrote on his unverified Twitter account that the words were not his.

1. There was a video on twitter but I'm not available to find it . A player is walking in with

a plate as he arrives And where he gets to where he can see the food layout, he said to the player walking in the line in front of him “What ? I thought that was a joke !”
More likely the team reaction
This whole event is in flames trumpers add gas with fake news if the guy is correct
Just admit you had the team come to celebrate immediately after their win as a pawn for your agenda

2. Only an idjit would think

a top-flight athlete wrote that or would consider Mickey D's (cold!) "the best meal we ever had." So I assume rump believed it and retweeted.

3. Hard to say, I can imagine Tebow saying that, why not Lawrence. Besides

Besides, coach Dabo S is a right winger who suggested protesters like Colin Kaepernick (?) should leave country.

Haven’t checked, but I bet where Lawrence is from went 70+% for trump. On edit, checked it was 76+%, with another 3% going for Libertarian.

4. Lawrence denied saying this.

Are you saying his denial is suspect?

5. I'm saying, it's very possible he said it, but someone said "unless you want to be a dork like Tebow

you ought to amend your trump BS." Or maybe one of the players who didn't come from a white wing county told him to stuff it. Who knows?

6. I think the simpler explanation is far more likely,

since we have seen other fabricated quotes from this White House.

7. Simpler for me is that he is from a region that went for trump by over 76%, and his coach is a

right winger. If he didn't say it, I bet he thinks it.

9. Well, here's a video where he did say it was "awesome." Not hard for me to believe he's a trumpster.

11. So, he never said "awesome," all smiles/giggles after meeting trump? Sorry, I don't do FOX News.

He's a trumpster.

12. No, he did say "awesome," just none of the rest.

Ross Taylor, assistant athletic director for Clemson football communications, told the Associated Press that Lawrence was shown the false quote on Tuesday.

“Everything that is presented in that meme is fabricated,” Taylor said.

13. A Athletic Director, probably smart enough not to want Clemson to appear like Liberty University.

He's probably a trumpster too.

I'm sorry, wouldn't be surprised if Lawrence said all of it and more to someone, maybe his dad is Archie Bunker or to Dabo. Also, wouldn't be surprised it PR people told him it didn't look good.

14. I don't doubt he liked the food

But coastal elite media, organic vegan, and blue collar party seem like words Trump would use and it appears he is trying too hard to sell it.
