Members of the winning basketball team at Baylor University Lady Bears had something to offer during their visit to the White House on Monday – a buffet of McDonalds, Chick-fil-A, Wendy's and Burger King classics.
President Trump welcomed the star athletes to the Oval Office to celebrate their NCAA Division I 2019 victory after beating Notre Dame 82-81 this month. This was the occasion for the women's first basketball team – College or Professional – at Trump White House.
As noted by USA Today, the official visit of Texan colleagues was a kind of return to tradition. Neither of the two former women's NCAA basketball teams traveled to DC, and none of the WNBA winners were invited.
"It was an exciting victory that people will be talking about for many, many years," the president said of the big game. "They have left a lasting mark in the history of college basketball."

The players gave Trump a signed basketball hat, a national championship hat, and a Baylor basketball jersey with the # 1.
"It can not be the right size," quipped longtime coach Kim Mulkey. "[First lady] Melania may look better in that."
According to images shared by the basketball team on social media, Whoppers, Quarter Pounders, Chicken McNuggets and more were apparently involved.
"Good time in the State Dining Room! #SicEm, "said Lady Bear's representatives on Twitter.
The commentators were far less impressed with the menu.

"That's ridiculous and a terrible example of future athletes," one said. "There is not even salad or fruit for this overheated, absolutely fresh fast food."
"Congratulations on winning, I'm sorry you got fast food served at the White House," laughed another.
Meanwhile, he defended the charity of the event in a larger sense.
"Well, for the rest of the world was it that hard or so wrong? A team that did something special made a one-time visit to the White House on this occasion, "argued one fan." That's it, no politics. "
