I would love to be able to tell you that the headline for this article was a bad joke. No one could possibly be dumb enough to feel the need to fact check President Trump’s boast that the burgers at the White House dinner with the Clemson Tigers were stacked “a mile high.” A just and righteous God couldn’t possibly allow stupidity of such monumental proportions to exist in this world.
I would love dearly to be able to reassure you. To tell you that the following is all just a poor attempt at humor on my part.
But this is 2019…and this is the Washington Post:
As Trump repeatedly makes clear, it is indeed a lot of food, but perhaps not a lot of food in the context of a hungry college football team. In his comments, he claims that there are 300 burgers in total, which are obviously joined by a number of salads, chicken nuggets and, on a separate table under a heat lamp, fries and pizzas.It raises a perhaps obvious question: Exactly how much did all of this cost the president?
FACT CHECK: At two inches each, a thousand burgers would not reach one mile high.
