Clearly there was a second gunman who made the actual kill shot on that defenseless jar.

I'm confused- I am good at opening jars, pickle or otherwise. Jam, too. Are pickles communist? I like peppers also.

Somebody help me. Hillary and her man hands threaten me.....

Alex's jar opening was faked. The pop sound was at the end, so it was loosened and he just pretended to open it.

The gun was totally not loud enough, and everyone knows an air gun isn't powerful enough to break a glass jar. I'm calling shenanigans. We need a special investigation.

Yep, the "pickle can" fell back and to the left -- had to be a second shooter. A thin layer of supernanothermite paint was used to make the "can" lid expand and open easily.

The pickle jar was a false flag to distract everyone's attention away from the olive jar.

Hey, I'm a male and younger than Hillary and I still need one of these. They work great, by the way.

Alex Jones thinks Hillary Clinton can't open a can jar of pickles, and that when she did so on Kimmel's show, it was somehow faked.


One of the three tramps had a can jar opener, didn't they?
