On his way over to the White House to chat with President Trump about why many of his constituents have been without pay for the past 25 days, Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL) had something more satiating on his mind: day-old Mcdonald’s.

Davis has a special place in his heart (and wallet) for the President’s favorite fast food chain. His father started his career as a McDonald’s employee and worked his way up to become a franchise owner. The fast-food company is also the top donor to his campaign committee and leadership PAC, donating more than $125,000 across four election cycles, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
But Davis’s hopes of cold french fries and leftover Big Macs will likely be dashed. While the President boasted on Twitter of his 1,000-plus cheeseburger order for the Clemson Tigers football team last night, he admits the “great guys” and “big eaters” scarfed down all the “hamberders” within one hour.
Great being with the National Champion Clemson Tigers last night at the White House. Because of the Shutdown I served them massive amounts of Fast Food (I paid), over 1000 hamburgers etc. Within one hour, it was all gone. Great guys and big eaters!
