Green Party presidential hopeful Jill Stein was scheduled to give a speech at Capital University in Bexley at noon today, but she wasn’t on time. Her convoy made a wrong turn. Like an airplane flying to a different city wrong turn. To be fair, who hasn’t been there before?
Instead of landing in Columbus, Ohio, Stein’s airplane ended up in Cincinnati due to a currently unknown error. Because you know what this election needed? More wacky antics. You would be correct in assuming the 2016 presidential race has become the world’s most popular reality TV programming of all-time. (Okay, Jersey Shore was probably still bigger.)

Apparently 100 people were waiting for Stein’s speech and will now have to wait two hours as Stein makes the drive to Cincinnati. This next part is totally serious: For those attendees willing to wait for Stein’s arrival, the campaign has ordered them pizzas.
That might be the saddest pizza party that’s ever happened. And that’s includes my night last Friday: a pizza party of one :(.
