March 10, 2019 at 02:54 GMT +00:00 · Published

Democratic US Senator for Minnesota and 2020 Presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar spoke about eating a salad with a hair comb at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Festival in Austin on Saturday.

"The comb story, was me sort of doing a mom thing. I didn't have a fork, I used a comb, to eat a salad very briefly on a plane. A MacGyver move," said the 2020 Presidential hopeful.

The Democratic US Senator went on to advise how to beat US President Donald Trump during campaigning, saying "pick your battles with him right? You don't go after every single tweet he does. When he called me the 'Snow Woman' I thought well this isn't bad."

The annual SXSW Festival, which showcases the best of film, music and interactive platforms, runs from Friday, March 8-Sunday, March 17.
