[Ed. – Evidently the Washington Post’s Philip Bump is unfamiliar expressions like ‘I’m hungry enough to eat a horse’ and other examples of harmless exaggeration. The irony is that the title of the piece — ‘President Trump’s extravagant, $3,000, 300-sandwich celebration of Clemson University’ — uses a little exaggeration in calling a $3,000 cash outlay ‘extravagant.’]
There is one other asterisk worth noting. In other comments, Trump — in true Trump fashion — suddenly more than tripled the hamburger count.

FACT CHECK: At two inches each, a thousand burgers would not reach one mile high.
It would require quite a large silver serving platter.
