We all know that Democratic Presidential candidate frontrunner Hillary Clinton has been working hard to lock down that Black vote, hence her recent bout of dominoes in East Harlem. Well on Monday, Clinton anted it all the way up when she was a guest on the Power 105 morning show with DJ Envy, Charlamagne Tha God and Angela Yee.
During the 30-minute interview in New York City, Charlamagne pressed her on “superpredator” comments, her pandering to Black voters and her being inauthentic, the Washington Post noted. But it the most shocking part of the interview came when Yee asked her what she always carried with her. In her best Beyoncé impression, Clinton surprisingly told the Breakfast Club, “Hot sauce …”
And yet, there were folks not feeling HRC and her need to be “down.”
When asked on whether her response was about pandering to Black folks, especially given the Beyoncé’s “Formation” reference, Clinton answered, “Okay, is it working?” But in fairness, as Time pointed out, this is not new information. In an 2012 interview, she told a reporter that her favorite spice de jour was Ninja Squirrel Hot Sauce.
But this Tweet sums it all up:
This appearance was just one of many before Clinton and opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders face off in the New York Dem primary on April 19. According to many polls, Clinton is ahead of Sanders by an average of 13 points.
