Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence had to let people know there was a little fake news circulating about him online.

Following Lawrence’s trip Monday night to the White House with Clemson, a quote attributed to him and trashing liberals was making the rounds. According to CollegeFootballTalk, the now deleted tweet read, “President Trump got all our favorite foods, it was the best meal we ever had. Then we go and see the coastal elite media trashing it for not being organic vegan. We’re football players, not bloggers. This was a perfect blue collar party.” (RELATED: Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence Towers Over Donald Trump During White House Visit)

Lawrence responded Tuesday afternoon on Twitter by stating, “I never said this by the way… I don’t know where it came from. However the trip to the White House was awesome!”

Seriously, how dumb do you have to be in order to believe Lawrence’s response to going to the White House was to trash the “coastal elite media” and talk about a blue collar party?

It’s like something I might fire up as quote after a handful of Miller Lites as a joke. In fact, I showed the fake quote to somebody last night, and their first response was to say that it sounded like something I had made up as a joke. (RELATED: Clemson Beats Alabama For National Title)

It’s so clearly fake that I don’t even know where to begin. Is it funny? Yes, it’s funny as hell, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not obviously fake.

Dabo Swinney would probably lose his mind if one of his players actually released a statement of this nature, and we all know it.

Having said all of that, I would like to believe I live in a world where Trump saw this quote and absolutely loved it.

In my dream world, the president is waking up this morning thinking that Lawrence actually was out here owning the libs after visiting the White House. I doubt he does think that, but just imagine the golden comedy content we’d get if he did.

Sometimes we just have to dream.
