Not that the Iowa State Fair doesn’t sound like a good time, but all of us here at Twitchy are awfully glad it’s not our job to follow Kamala Harris around and report when she eats a pork chop on a stick. But if you are a reporter stuck following one of the Democratic candidates around, you’ve got to come up with something.

And HuffPost has come up with something: They’ve asked each of the 2020 hopefuls how he or she performs “self-care” on the campaign trail.

Sarah Ruiz-Grossman explains:

With the 2020 presidential general election still more than a year away, and more than two dozen Democrats in the race, the candidates have a long road ahead of them. Given the notoriously grueling, high-pressure environment of a campaign trail, HuffPost asked them all how they’ve been practicing self-care along the way.

While the term “self-care” has become popularized in recent years ― often as a kind of “wellness trend” promoted on social media by celebrities or companies trying to sell women their products ― the concept dates much further back, with roots in the medical industry and as a political act in the women’s and civil rights movements of the 1960’s and 1970’s.

We can’t be the only people thinking, “Who cares?”

Remember the fuss about President Trump getting two scoops of ice cream? Of course, you do; it was on cable news for a week. Just wait until the public finds out about Joe Biden’s ice cream habit:

Some of the entries are funny, just for the insane amount of pandering that goes into them. Check out Kirsten Gillibrand’s aide’s answer: “Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) starts her days with an early morning workout, aiming to support local, women-owned studios while on the campaign trail.”

Barf.
