CBS Reporter Breaks Story Of The Century On President Trump's Salt And Pepper Shakers

The media is in a crazed frenzy over the latest scandal involving President Donald Trump.
If you guessed that it involved the Russia, Emoluments, the Ukraine, the Bidens, impeachment or the like you are incorrect.
Well, kind of. They are still in a frenzy over all of those things, but the latest scandal puts all of the others to shame.
CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller, in an obvious bid for the Pulitzer Prize, broke the story of the century on Thursday.
“Didn’t know that the President gets bigger salt-and-pepper shakers than anyone else at the table,” he said.

He shared a tweet that pointed out … wait for it … that President Trump’s salt and pepper shakers were bigger than everyone else’s at his table.
But it gets better. Business Insider, being the crack journalism team that they are, “combed the archives” to compare President Trump’s salt and pepper shakers with those of other presidents.
Business Insider combed the photo archives and found that Trump more often than not gets much larger salt and pepper shakers than other foreign leaders or American politicians when dining at the White House. And they couldn’t find instances of Trump’s most recent predecessors using larger shakers than those of their guests.
The large shakers might just be because he enjoys salty foods like KFC chicken, Big Macs, and bacon and eggs. But it could also be another power move, alongside his fierce handshakes and bulky suits.
These photos show how much bigger Trump’s White House salt and pepper shakers usually are than everyone else’s, and how they compare to those of Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.
The story, and we are being generous by calling it a story, goes on to compare photos of the salt and pepper shakers of past presidents and their guests.
It literally, goes on to compare the pictures complete with red circles to highlight the size of the salt and pepper shakers.
I know what you are thinking. Suddenly The Federalist papers has decided to write satire like The Babylon bee or The Onion.

Friends, I wish that were true. But, alas, this is a real story in 2019. Bigger than ice cream scoop gate. It is salt and pepper gate and it is journalism in 2019.
