With a little over a week to go until the New York Democratic primary, both Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are clamoring for metropolitan votes, by — how else? — riding the subway and chowing down on New York City staples.
Last week, we reported on John Kasich trying New York pizza (with a knife and fork) and this week, both Senator Sanders and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton went for irrefutable classics during their five borough visit: A Coney Island Nathan’s hot dog, and Junior’s cheesecake, respectively.
The only difference is Bernie Sanders was pictured voraciously chowing down on a dog with sauerkraut and mustard with his wife, while Hillary Clinton was criticized for visiting Junior’s in Brooklyn and ordering a ton of cheesecake without actually eating a single bite.
