Baylor Served Fast Food at White House After National Championship

The White House also gave out fast food to Clemson's football team in January 2019 following its national championship win over Alabama. 

Baylor visited Donald Trump at the White House on Monday following its NCAA tournament title on April 1, receiving a now-traditional meal before meeting with the President. The Lady Bears ate Burger King, McDonald's, Wendy's and Chick-fil-A, the same spread given to Clemson and North Dakota State's national champion football teams. 

The Lady Bears then visited with the President in the Oval Office and presented him with a No. 1 "Trump" jersey and a commemorative hat, according to KCEN's Nick Canizales. Monday marked the program's second visit to the White House this decade, previously meeting with President Obama following a national championship in 2012. 

Baylor is the first women's sports team to meet with Trump. Neither the Minnesota Lynx nor the Seattle Storm of the WNBA was invited to the White House after their league titles.
