During the event, The Atlantic‘s Steve Clemons asked McAuliffe how his family’s pet chicken was doing.
“I hate to say this, one chicken died. About a month before the election Hillary died,” McAuliffe responded. “We’ve got Hillary Jr. now. She is bright and fluffy and making a lot of noise and healthy as an ox.”
