MSM Finally Curious About Hillary's Truthfulness, Fact Checks Her Hot Sauce Claim

The Decline and Fall of America–The Clinton Years.

Republican frontrunner Donald Trump accused Hillary Clinton of pandering in New York with her comment on Monday that she carries hot sauce with her everywhere she goes.

“It’s the same thing that she always does. She carries hot sauce like I carry hot sauce. It’s just, I don’t know, it’s just so phony and so pandering and so terrible,” Trump said during a Fox News interview on Tuesday morning.

Trump’s doubts echoed the hosts of The Breakfast Club radio show where she made the admission Monday.

“Now listen, I want you to know that people are going to see this and say ‘She’s pandering to black people,’” host Charlamagne Tha God told her.

But the paper trail for Clinton’s love of hot sauce is long and eclectic. She said the same thing in a 2008 interview with 60 Minutes and a January interview with NPR, explaining that the practice began in 1992 while her husband was running for president, when she read about the beneficial effects of hot peppers on the immune system.

For years, the MSM has taken whatever Dame van der Cankles has said about Benghazi or her email server at face value, generally just repeating whatever “Republicans’ fault!” conspiracy theory she’d just concocted in her often confused brain.

But this they just had to get to the bottom of.

Yes, there are often lighthearted reports filed from the campaign trail. Were this one of them, there would be, I wouldn’t be writing about this article. I know what sarcasm and tongue-in-cheek looks like, and this isn’t it. A quick glance at the author’s body of work shows that humor really isn’t her thing. She thinks she’s really doing some reporting here.

On Hillary’s hot sauce.

I keep mentioning journalism’s death rattle, perhaps I should be talking about its rotting corpse.

But kudos to the hacks for finding the one thing Hillary Clinton hasn’t lied about this year.
