ATLANTA — Hamburgers or hamberders?
However you want to label the headliner for Monday's sumptuous fast-food feast at the White House celebrating Clemson's national championship in football, just know Trevor Lawrence enjoyed the whole scene.
The omnipresent TMZ Sports caught up with the Clemson quarterback, while signing autographs for fans waiting outside the White House grounds; and between signatures, the Cartersville native was still beaming about the Tigers' casual dinner with President Donald J. Trump.
"It was awesome," said Lawrence, the first true freshman quarterback to start and win a national title game since 1985. "We had McDonald's and everything. It was good."
Judging by the many social-media posts, McDonald's garnered plenty of representation at the champions meal, along with Wendy's, Burger King and Domino's pizza.
The fast-food theme was well-received by Clemson's gathering of mammoth-sized athletes (and head coach Dabo Swinney). It was also a necessity, since formal dinners with the president are traditionally low key, whenever there's a government shutdown.
Trump solved the problem on that end, reportedly using his own money to pay for the massive food spread.
Lawrence, who supplanted Kelly Bryant as Clemson's starting quarterback in late September/early October, had a stellar outing in the championship game, passing for 347 yards and three touchdowns.
His signature moment: With Clemson holding a 31-16 lead, Lawrence fired a near-sideline completion to Justyn Ross, amid heavy defensive pressure.
Instead of a simple reception, though, an Alabama defender immediately crumpled to the ground ... allowing the lightning-fast Ross to post the Tigers' longest receiving touchdown of the season (72 yards).
After that, Clemson was in cruise control, becoming college football's first 15-0 team in 121 years (the Ivy League's Penn in 1897).
Monday's visit marked the Tigers' second championship trip to the White House in three years (both victories came against Alabama), but only the first for Lawrence, the top-ranked pro-style quarterback from 2018 (source: Rivals.com).
As such, per NCAA rules, Lawrence will have at least two more chances to claim another national championship (2019/2020), before likely entering the NFL draft pool in 2021.
When asked by a fan how many times Clemson would be visiting Washington D.C. on Lawrence's watch, the quarterback quipped, "Hopefully, a few more," according to TMZ Sports.
UPDATE: Lawrence set the record straight on Tuesday, unequivocally denying the veracity of a post-meal quote attributed to him by another media outlet (below).
