The mainstream media continued its non-stop obsession with President Trump and his administration this week, pushing crazed conspiracy theories for months including a new “bombshell” report from the Washington Post that details Trump’s scandalous candy preferences.
The Post took some time from its never-ending conspiracy theories surrounding Russia’s attempt to steal the 2016 presidential race from Hillary Clinton to focus on yet another scandal surrounding the White House: The President’s preference for Starburst.
In an exposé published Monday, the left-leaning newspaper shed groundbreaking new light on Trump’s preference for cherry and strawberry flavored Starburst candies; the chewy, square-shaped sweets.
“President Trump and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) were alone in the presidential suite on Air Force One, flying east toward Washington in early October, when the president reached for a handful of Starbursts, the fruit-flavored, box-shaped chewy candies,” writes the Post.
“But instead of unwrapping all the treats, the president was careful to pluck out and eat two flavors: cherry and strawberry,” the author adds.
“A bit later, a couple of his aides saw me with those colors and told me, ‘Those are the president’s favorites,’” McCarthy told the paper.
Even liberal reporters on social media were quick to point out the absurdity of the Post’s article, saying, “This Starburst thing doesn’t seem that crazy. People have favorite Starburst flavors. http://wapo.st/2mFLcbQ .”
