[Ed. – Let’s all raise a quizzical eyebrow to this one. The diehard partisans of the Pizzagate theory will see this as proof of Hillary’s complicity in the alleged pedophile ring. The diehard partisans of the “Pizzagate was debunked” school will see it as evidence that Hillary’s a swell gal, showing support for an unjustly targeted restaurant. The locked epistemic gate between alternate universes will remain right where it is.]
Ten months after a gunman opened fire in a D.C. pizza parlor over a debunked conspiracy theory involving 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her campaign chairman, John Podesta, it was revealed that Clinton had quietly supported the pizzeria in the wake of the shooting.
Monday evening, during the first stop of Clinton’s book tour for her new campaign memoir, What Happened, the evening’s host, Lissa Muscatine, co-owner of the popular Washington bookstore Politics and Prose, told the crowd that Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, had purchased a number of pizzas from Comet Ping Pong and sent them to a local after-school literacy program.
“I told you what was going on and you responded instantly and were so supportive,” recalled Muscatine, whose bookstore is located just down the street from the pizza place. “A few days after that, you and your husband said, ‘What can we do to support Comet?’”
