CNN fact checks Sean Spicer’s joke about Russian salad dressing

March 29, 2017

  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.

    “”The Russian Salad (also known as Olivier Salad) is a potato/vegetable salad popular to eat with BBQ or spit roasted meat and commonly served at New Year Celebrations. It makes a wonderful alternative to the traditional potato salad that is usually served.””
