Trump accused of sexism after telling Clemson players that he almost asked Melania to make salad for them

Was President Donald Trump sexist in saying that he was thinking about asking his wife, First Lady Melania Trump, and the wife of Vice President Mike Pence, Karen Pence, salads for the Clemson football team?

The president said Monday that he was feeding almost hungry Clemson footballers salads prepared by the First and Second Ladies, but decided to buy fast food instead for an event in the White House celebrating their national title.

The Clemson Tigers were invited to the White House after winning the national championship 2018.

Trump's remarks irritated both Twitter users and commentators on CNN, the news giant of the cable.

Erin Burnett, who hosts a nightly talk show hosted on CNN, and one of her guests, journalist and liberal commentator Joan Walsh, have both destroyed Trump on Tuesday.

It seems that the president will not be happy until there is not a single female Republican voter in the country, Walsh Burnett said Tuesday about her program.

"He should not talk about the First Lady that way. We are not all here to make salads for men.

& # 39; It's disgusting. & # 39;

Burnett agreed and said: "This is one of those things where sometimes people say when they are funny, show exactly who they are and what they think.

& # 39; Not that there is any doubt, but this is pretty obvious. & # 39;

Burnett did not even invite a conservative panellist, Scott Jennings, to Burnett and Walsh.

& # 39; I have certainly not considered his comments as sexist, & # 39; he said.

& # 39; I think if someone takes them that way, that's fine.

& # 39; They probably want to regard everything Donald Trump says as bad. & # 39;

Burnett pushed Jennings back and asked him: & # 39; How on earth can you not see it as sexist, assuming that his wife is going to make salads for a couple of football players?

& # 39; What is she, like the cook? & # 39;

Jennings replied: "I did not hear it that way …. I make salad and my wife makes salad … That's not how it happened to me.

& # 39; I think he was trying to make a joke about running hamburgers to football players. I think you might be reading this. & # 39;

The president said Monday in the remarks to the football team of Clemson that he & # 39; 1,000 hamburgers & # 39; delivered for the East Room event, where chicken nuggets and pizza were served, after he told the reporters that he had delivered 300 hamburgers an hour earlier.

& # 39; I had a choice: we do not have food for you, because we have a shutdown, or give you a few quick salads that the First Lady makes together with the Second Lady, then they make some salads, & # 39; Trump said.

& # 39; And I said, you do not like salads. & # 39;

He chose Big Macs, Quarter Pounders and other fast-food delicacies. & # 39; We have everything that I like, that you like, & # 39; he told players to laugh. & # 39; And I know that whatever we do, there is nothing that you might have that is better than that. & # 39;

I wanted to see it, so it was piled up a mile high, I just wanted to see what was left. I saw it at the beginning. How much is he left there? How much? & # 39; he asked. & # 39; None, & # 39; a woman in the audience informed him.

Trump paid for the food smorgasbord that his White House served to the Clemson Tigers when the national champions visited the White House on Monday night instead of pushing the event that made the partial elimination of the government more difficult.

& # 39; We ordered American fast food. Paid by me. A lot of burgers, lots of pizza, I think they like it better than anything we can give, & # 39; Trump told reporters when he arrived at the White House after a speech outside the state.

We have a few very large people who love food, so I think we'll have a little fun. & # 39;
