If you need any proof that liberal/Progressive/Democrats have gone stark raving cuckoo, look what a little candy does to them.
Twitter expressed outrage on Monday after the Washington Post reported that President Donald Trump only eats two different flavors of Starbursts, the box-shaped, fruit-flavored chewy candies.
In an interview with the Post, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) mentioned how, when the two were having dessert in October, Trump picked out and only ate the red and pink Starbursts.
“We’re there, having a little dessert, and he offers me some,” McCarthy said. “Just the red and the pink. A bit later, a couple of his aides saw me with those colors and told me, ‘Those are the president’s favorites.'”
The Twitterverse, including mainstream media journalists, was quick to respond with a flurry of thoughts on Trump’s candy preferences.
It turns out that days later, McCarthy bought some Starbursts, picked out the pink and red ones, put them in a jar and sent them over to the White House.
That caused eruptions on Twitter like this one: “Our taxes are paying for an employee to sort thru Starburst candies to segregate all the pinks & reds for the narcissist in the WH.”
And, “I’m sure if there were white ones… they would be only Starbursts Trump likes. This is disgusting #ShithoIeGOP kissing by Sen McCarthy to separate Trump’s Starburts for him so he only gets his favorites. #ImpeachTrump”
From the Daily Kos: “Using candy and picture-books, House Majority Leader McCarthy is becoming Trump’s new best buddy”

Plus, “Government waste at work. Starburst specifically makes a product which only includes these flavors. Kevin McCarthy, his team, and Trump, are all imbeciles for not knowing this.#FaveReds #ShitholePresident”

Honestly, don’t these people have better things to do than this? What about the Washington Post? I hear there’s a big scandal brewing about the DOJ, FBI and the Steele Dossier. Perhaps they could send a few reporters out to cover the biggest political story of our lifetimes instead of pink and red Starbursts.
