Hillary Clinton, a politician who often is seen as out-of-touch with regular folks, has been on a sort-of every-man/woman tour to connect with those same voters. The Inquisitr reported Monday on the Hillary Clinton Chipotle restaurant visit. The left-of-center media, and pundits alike, lit up the web with excitement of her choice of a burrito serving restaurants.
However, it was the not her choice of burrito restaurant that was shocking, which is run by left-minded individuals. It was not the strange aspect of her incognito, mystery shopper style look actually fooling people into thinking it was not her, either. According to a report by Bloomberg Politics, Hillary Clinton stiffed the Chipotle workers on a tip.
This comes during a time when many have criticized her as being out-of-touch aristocrat, and used her expensive speaking engagements, among other things, to highlight her wealth in a political landscape that does not take too kindly to wealthy candidates. She ran up an over $20 bill, but apparently left nil in the tip jar.
"Her bill was $20 and some change, and they paid with $21 and left without putting anything in a tip jar on the counter"
Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh, a self-proclaimed "conservative" who is no fan of Hillary Clinton, ironically questioned whether or not she tipped the Chipotle employees on his show Tuesday.
"I mean, that's where the people that work at Chipotle, that's where they make a little extra, in the tip jar, and I haven't heard a word about whether or not she visited the tip jar, whether she put anything in it or not."
Whether or not this adds to political debate topics in the upcoming primaries, both Democrat and Republican, one wonders if this is, at least, bad "optics," as they say.
