CNN Fact Checks White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer On Salad Dressing

Bastion of manufactured narratives, CNN, has outdone themselves again. This time, they took a joke made by White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and fact checked it.

At a press conference, Spicer was asked about Russian connections to President Trump.

Reporter, “You’ve got other things going on, you’ve got Russia, you’ve got wire tapping…”

Sean Spicer, “We don’t have that. I’ve said it from the day that I’ve got here, there is no connection. You’ve got Russia. If the President puts Russian salad dressing on his salad tonight, somehow that’s a Russia connection.”

CNN jumped at the opportunity to prove that Spicer was wrong, but not about the Russia connection thing, instead, it was about the salad dressing.

The big headline on CNN:

Russian dressing is actually from Nashua, New Hampshire

This is hard-hitting news, people!

Not only is Russian dressing not really Russian, it’s not actually for salads. I know, right? Mind blown.

Michelle Krupa with CNN reported:

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.
