CNN Anchors Laugh at the Idea of Hillary Clinton Pumping Her Own Gas


In an effort to appeal to the middle class, presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton kicked off her campaign by taking a road trip to Iowa.

During the trip, she and the "Scooby" van made a stop at a travel center in Altoona, Penn. While at the travel center, Clinton ran into a few potential voters and referred to as a "nice family." Clinton took a few pictures and then got back on the road.

CNN interviewed the 19-year-old potential voter and picture taker, Chris Learn, who is a student at Penn State at Altoona studying criminal justice. Learn said that Clinton had asked what he was studying and that she supports it.

Through a fit of giggles. John Berman asked Learn whether he saw Clinton pump her own gas. Learn said that he did not see it happen.
