An ESPN host suggested Wednesday it was racist for President Donald Trump to serve fast food to the Clemson football team at the White House, saying such food being given to players of a “predominately black sport” gave her pause.
Paid for by Trump, the White House offered a spread of Wendy’s, McDonald’s, Burger King and Domino’s pizza to the Clemson players on Monday when they visited to celebrate their national championship win. While the players appeared to enjoy the food, some political and sports observers took Trump to task for what they considered a low-class gesture.
On the daily ESPN debate show “First Take,” panelists Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman discussed the matter, with Smith saying it was a “classless” and “disgraceful” move by Trump.
“It was wrong to do,” Smith said. “It’s unfortunate … that he would choose to conduct himself this way. But are we surprised? Absolutely not.”
