Hillary Clinton has zero time for this reporter asking if she “calorie counts”

So Hillary Clinton was hanging out at a New York ice cream parlour a couple of days ago. Well, we say hanging out; technically, she was there on business, rallying support for last night’s primary election. Still, there are worse places to spend an afternoon. Mikey, the shop’s proprietor, made her a frankly insane-sounding ice cream sundae named ‘Victory’, which he explained was inspired by Hillary’s “journey”.

“It’s a double chocolate waffle stuffed with Oreo cookies, topped off with a scoop of milk chocolate ice cream with semi-sweet chocolate chips, milk chocolate-covered marshmallows, topped with chocolate whipped cream and a chocolate-covered cherry,” he told the assembled throng of journalists.

Clinton promptly dug in, as you would. And then a reporter asked her: “Do you calorie count?”

We know, we know: mass eye roll. Because come on, random reporter: you get the chance to ask the Democratic front runner in the US presidential election one question, and that’s what you go for? You want to know whether Hillary Clinton worries about whether an ice cream sundae will go straight to her hips? We just... OK. Fine. Whatever. 

Clinton responded in the only way you can when asked such a stupid question: she booed in his face.

Clinton said last night that her “victory is in sight” for the Democratic nomination, after she beat rival Bernie Sanders in the New York primary election. Donald Trump, competing against Ted Cruz, won the state primary for the Republicans.
