The Sarcastic Scoop: Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's latest scandal involves ordering pizza via her personal phone

The White House hopeful comes under fire once again for her technology usage.

CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. — After Hillary Clinton’s email scandal during which she used a private email to send and receive classified information, Clinton has been under fire by the media and U.S. citizens. A recent poll in Ohio showed that 53 percent of voters do not find her trustworthy. However, a new scandal erupted when Clinton was found using her personal cell phone to order a pizza.

Clinton was caught last Saturday using her private cell phone to purchase a cheese and anchovies pizza, according to FBI director James Comey, which enraged Americans all across the nation.

“It’s very disappointing,” New York local Cameron Davis told reporters. “You’d think she would have learned from the email scandal, but some people just never change. There are some people you’ll just never be able to trust.”

“I would say I’m shocked and confused,” local Jenny Raymond said. “Anchovies? On a pizza? That’s even more disgusting than what she did.”

“She was using private, important information on that phone call,” Congressman Trey Gowdy said in an interview. “She was saying things like her credit card number, or the kinds of toppings she likes. What if that information got out? She needs to stop compromising the safety of our government and of our people.”

When asked whether the pizza scandal would affect Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign, one man responded, “She needs to stop pretending that she’s invincible. If she keeps hiding things, nobody will trust her.”

Another said, “I don’t want someone like that in the White House. It’s disappointing to say the least.”

“Someone who gets anchovies on their pizza should not be controlling our military,” another adamantly responded. “People’s lives are on the line. It’s time for Clinton to take things seriously or nobody will see her fit enough to be president.”

The Pizza Hut employee who received the call seemed to be equally distressed.

“It did make me very uncomfortable,” he said in a recent interview. “You know, when you pick up the phone and you hear Hillary Clinton’s voice, and you realize she’s using a private cell phone number, wouldn’t you be scared? Wouldn’t you be worried that you’re about to be involved in fraud or compromise the safety of innocent Americans? I told my manager immediately after the call was over. He didn’t believe me and told me to just deliver the pizza. I’m still shaking from the experience. I could have been involved in one of the greatest government schemes in history. I’m just glad they haven’t found any alternate intentions yet.”

Although she has yet to comment on the controversy, Clinton has closed the number she used to make the order. Attempts have been made to contact her for an interview, but she is now unable to receive texts or calls, cutting her off from the media and the rest of the world.
