Fox News host Andrea Tantaros suggested on Tuesday that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had dined at a Chipotle restaurant as a part of her campaign’s “Hispanic outreach” efforts.
The New York Times reported on Monday that Clinton had gone unnoticed when she stopped in a Toledo-area Chipotle for lunch with her campaign chairwoman Huma Abedin.
Clinton’s dining experience was the first topic of conversation on Fox News’ Outnumbered on Tuesday.
“In keeping the every-woman image, she stopped at a Chipotle for a burrito bowl at Chipotle outside Toledo,” Tantaros reported, joking that Clinton’s meal was “the incognito burrito.”
“Someone said on Twitter that she and Huma looked hungover with the big glasses and the shades on,” she noted. “Was this the best way to connect with a chicken burrito bowl?”
“She’s so real,” Fox News host Kennedy Montgomery said sarcastically. “She’s like, ‘Listen, I want some food of the people, but I don’t want it to be icky. I don’t want it to be too… ethnic. Is there some middle ground we can find?’ Go to Chipotle. Got to eat off this hangover.”
“Was it maybe it Hispanic outreach?” Tantaros volunteered in a sudden moment of insight. “She heard [Sen. Marco Rubio] was announcing so she thought, ‘Let’s go to a Chipotle and have some Pico de Gallo!'”

‘They have a responsibility to not be stupid’: MSNBC’s Morning Joe slaps Trump’s ‘ignorant’ rally-goers for swallowing Trump lies
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough blamed President Donald Trump's supporters for failing their most basic civic responsibility by remaining willfully ignorant and swallowing his lies.
The president claimed his betrayal of the Kurds was actually keeping them safe, despite credible reports of war crimes against them by Turkey, and the "Morning Joe" host challenged rally-goers to open their eyes -- and believe what they see.
"It's the responsibility to people that show up at those rallies to not be stupid, to not be so stupid that they should be kept away from blenders," Scarborough said. "All they have to do is spend three seconds actually watching the news, all they have to do is spend three seconds on Google, spend three seconds talking to somebody that is not completely brainwashed to see that this is a horrible deal for the Kurds."
‘This was the smoking gun!’ MSNBC’s Morning Joe explains why Mulvaney ‘confession’ could end Trump presidency
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough said White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney had offered "smoking gun" evidence in a stunning confession to the crime at the heart of the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.
The "Morning Joe" host said Mulvaney had made a stunning "confession," but he said the president had on the same day endorsed the ethnic cleansing of the Kurdish allies he had betrayed to Turkey.
"There's so much to talk about, we joke for a few minutes at the top of the show, Mika likes do that, me, I like to get straight into the news," said Scarborough, who frequently annoys his wife and co-host by bantering about sports at the start of the show. "But there's so much going on that if somebody just woke up this morning they might not think that yesterday was not one of the most significant news days in, during the Trump presidency, and I may even argue one of the most significant news days over perhaps the last decade, just in terms of volume."
‘The wheels are coming off’: MSNBC panel says Trump told his chief of staff to ‘walk the plank’
Two MSNBC anchors discussed Thursday's whirlwind day of breaking news in scandals involving President Donald Trump.
The host of "The Rachel Maddow Show" joined Brian Williams on "The 11th Hour" to discuss Trump holding the G7 Summit at his Trump National Doral Miami golf course and the White House acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, confessing that there was a quid pro quo with Ukraine -- before attempting to walk back his confession.
"Did things change today, do you think?" Williams asked.
"I do feel like the wheels are coming off," Maddow said.
"For the Energy Secretary [Rick Perry] to resign, you've had two cabinet secretaries resign during the impeachment proceedings already, one of whom, the current one resigning tonight, the Energy Secretary, does appear to be involved in the scheme, at least on a couple of different levels. We have got the White House Chief of Staff who was sent out today, not only to make the, 'Yes, it was quid pro quo. Yes, we did it. What are you going to make of it?' article -- which was bracing, but then to take it back, simultaneously announcing this self-dealing, which is something more blatant than we’ve ever seen from any president in U.S. history," she explained.
