Mario Batali Hangs Out With Fellow Scrunchie Enthusiast Hillary Clinton

Last night at a Clinton Global Initiative fundraiser at Eataly, Mario Batali happened to run into former Secretary of State and current HGTV watcher Hillary Clinton. As they took this selfie, which would have been perfect for the defunct Texts From Hillary Tumblr, Mario himself tagged Hillary with the following cryptic phrase in a tweet: “Future President Clinton.”

Woah, woah, woah, what does he know that we don’t?!

While we at The Braiser would never dub ourselves Nate Silver (though we’d love to eat burritos with him, hint hint), we just can’t let go of the idea that Batali might have some insider, Secret Democrat knowledge of a Hillary 2016 run that we ourselves would not be privy to, seeing as we are, of course, The Media. What else could they have been doing? Eating pancetta? Trading scrunchies? Discussing the progressive goals of the Clinton Global Initiative, which Batali has been involved with for years? More likely, they were discussing a ground-level strategy for the Iowa primaries, because duh.

Or maybe they really just were exchanging scrunchie tips.


Have a tip we should know?
