Louisiana's Little League Champs Ate Popeyes Sandwiches at Gov's Mansion

Remember when Trump gave Big Macs to the students at Clemson?

The Advocate reports:

The Eastbank All-Stars, the Little League champions from Louisiana, took a special visit Sunday to the Governor's Mansion where they had an even more exclusive meal.
Governor John Bel Edwards surprised the boys with sold-out Popeyes chicken sandwiches, both spicy and mild.
The sandwiches and the baseball team caught international attention around the same time. While the sandwiches were selling out at stores around the world, the boys were beating other Little League teams from around the world.
Both made countless headlines.
"The only place in the world that you can get a Popeyes Chicken sandwich is at the Governor's Mansion tonight," Edwards tweeted. "Only the best for Louisiana's own 2019 Little League World Series Champions! #LouisianaProud."
The team visited with the governor and First Lady Donna Edwards, who showed them around the grounds and gifted them with Marucci baseball bats.
