Kirsten Gillibrand ate chicken at a campaign event in South Carolina earlier today. She wanted to make sure she was being proper in the context and asked whether she should eat it with a fork or her hands. Will you be surprised that our political media found this the most pressing issue of the day?
Could this really be the first time in 50 years she ate fried chicken? https://t.co/XHOMj6Emcz

Is there anything Gillibrand has done that is not contrived and opportunistic? I ask the question seriously. Replies welcome. https://t.co/T3EEYdGBD2

Who gives a shit how a candidate eats chicken! Do you have to be a compiler of useless trivia based on random markers of authenticity to write about politics for the New York Times? [Checks random Maureen Dowd column] Oh yes, I guess that is a requirement!
This is just pathetic. And it is February 2019. We have another 18 months of this.
