CNN fact checks Sean Spicer’s joke about Russian salad dressing
During a press briefing yesterday Sean Spicer made a joke about how if the conspiracy theorists on the left found out Donald Trump used Russian salad dressing they would claim this was more proof of a Trump/Russia connection.
This was an obvious joke but CNN felt the need to fact check Russian salad dressing and here is what “the most trusted name in news” came up with:
“If the President puts Russian salad dressing on his salad tonight, somehow that’s a Russia connection,” Sean Spicer said.
Thing is, Russian dressing isn’t Russian. (Also, it’s really not for salads, but more of a sandwich spread — usually a Reuben.)
The mayo and ketchup concoction — often dressed up with horseradish and spices — was created in Nashua, New Hampshire.
Yep, Russian dressing is neither Russian nor a dressing, you certainly put Sean Spicer in his place CNN. This is what constitutes journalism in America with Donald Trump as President. Good job CNN, thanks for enlightening us on this issue of such vital importance.
