Update:White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley provided the following statement to CNN: “The President desired to host a fun event to commemorate the College Football National Champ Clemson Tigers. Because the Democrats refuse to negotiate on border security, much of the home staff at the White House is furloughed– so the President is personally spending for the occasion to be catered with some of everyone’s preferred quick foods.”

Since of the shutdown, you understand we have the excellent Clemson team with us, the nationwide champions,” he said. “So we went out and we ordered American fast food, paid for by me.”
