& Government Shutdown
Donald Trump boasted about purchasing "over 1,000 hamberders [sic]" for members of the national championship Clemson Tigers football team in a Tweet taking credit for paying for them due to the government shutdown. The misspelling was the only problem with Trump's tweet, considering the amount of hamburgers he purchased magically grew from 300 to "over 1,000" in a matter of minutes. Trump initially bragged about buying 300 burgers before more than tripling the number to 1,000 minutes later.
