Talk about fake news and making a mountain out of a molehill.  On Wednesday, CNN — the anti-Trump propaganda outlet now known as the least-trusted name in network news — actually investigated Russian salad dressing after White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer used it to mock the conspiracy theorists formerly known as “reporters” in a White House briefing.

“If the President puts Russian salad dressing on his salad tonight, somehow that’s a Russia connection,” Spicer said.

But, CNN said in its “fact-check,” Russian dressing is actually from Nashua, New Hampshire.

Thing is, Russian dressing isn’t Russian. (Also, it’s really not for salads, but more of a sandwich spread — usually a Reuben.)Russian dressing typically is served with corned beef, Swiss and sauerkraut on a Reuben sandwich.

The mayo and ketchup concoction — often dressed up with horseradish and spices — was created in Nashua, New Hampshire.

It was grocer James E. Colburn who invented the spread in 1924, according to “New Hampshire Resources, Attractions and Its People, a History,” by Hobart Pillsbury. The Washington Post cites the 1927 text, which says Colburn sold the condiment to “retailers and hotels across the country, earning ‘wealth on which he was enabled to retire.'”

Media analyst Mark Dice shredded the network over the story:

Not too long ago, our own T.K. Whiteman joked about the media using Russian dressing to hammer the Trump administration.  Who knew they would actually go there…

How long before Democrats demand an investigation and call for impeachment as a result of this ground-breaking report?

Our response?  You got it:

More stupidity from liberals on Orlando. Now they want to ban white Americans from America.
