Fast food and jokes from President Trump as NDSU football visits the White House

President Trump had the NDSU football team laughing on Monday.

Since 2011, the North Dakota State University Bison football team has 112 wins, eight losses and seven national championships. 

The football powerhouse's most recent championship was won in January, and on Monday they celebrated with a trip to the White House where they were given a tour, met President Donald Trump and ate fast food. 

Chik-fil-A to be exact. 

It's the same thing the White House did for Clemson's national championship football team during their visit earlier this year. The difference is that Clemson was served fast food because the government was shut down at the time. 

"We had the Clemson Tigers here. I did the same thing. We could've have chefs but we're having fast food. I know you people very well," Trump explained, drawing a laugh from the players.

Trump also had the room laughing as he complimented quarterback Easton Stick's looks. 

"He's got the look," Trump said as soon as he found Stick in the crowd to his left. 

"Tom Brady," he added, drawing a big laugh. 

Stick joined the team in D.C. after spending much of the past week in Indianapolis for the NFL Scouting Combine, where he finished top three among quarterbacks in the 40-yard dash, vertical jump and broad jump. 

Stick will likely be selected during the April 25-27 NFL Draft, which will make him the second NDSU quarterback to go pro in the past four years. 

Carson Wentz was the No. 2 overall pick to the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2016 NFL Draft.
