Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY, received high praise on Thursday for what many believe to be a strong choice in comfort food.
Senators Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass, and Kamala Harris, D-Calif, chose chips and guacamole and fries respectively. South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg chose beef jerky. Sen Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn, chose a baked potato.
Then some of the answers get pretty unusual. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-HI, chose "vegan cupcakes" and Sen. Cory Booker, D-NJ, who is a vegan, chose vegetables. Spiritual guru Marianne Williamson said she had "no comfort food."
However, Gillibrand's choice stood out among the rest... whiskey.
The New York senator's response was widely-acclaimed and earned bipartisan support on social media.
Others knocked some of Gillibrand's competitors for their lackluster responses, including "The View" co-host Meghan McCain, who questioned if the 2020 Democrats even know "what comfort food is."
