Democratic presidential candidate and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders gave an impassioned speech at a New Hampshire rally Monday, in which he railed primarily against the inequity in the number of hot dogs per package and the number of hot dog buns.
Sanders focused roughly 75 percent of his half hour speaking on the “hot dog gap” even naming names of brands he thinks the 99 percent needs to hold accountable.
“Why come we live in a nation where hot dogs come in packages of 10 and buns come in packages of 8?” Sanders shouted. “Ballpark Franks. Oscar Meyer. Vienna Beef. These are the corporations that are not on our side.”
The crowd – who initially agreed with him – grew confused around the 10 minute mark of his hot dog rant and applause became less thunderous. Many Sanders supporters left the event shrugging, asking aloud what actually just happened.
