  1. The video showed her taking one bite, far from “gobbling”. Also cannot see proof of obvious intoxication
    ,though some sort of incapacity can be inferred.
    Typical journalistic hyperbole in search of an attention grabbing “hook”, in my opinion.
    It would have gotten a poor grade in Professor Filer’s journalism classes, in my opinion.
