Bill Clinton cheats… on his diet
President Bill Clinton has been telling everyone he is a vegan since 2009, but it turns out Clinton’s a liar.
The former president, who has been enlisted to sell the nation on Obamacare, told reporters that he was joining his daughter, Chelsea, in an all vegan diet after he had had heart trouble. He was even named PETA’s person of the year in 2010.
But in a recent interview with AARP, Clinton said he ate salmon and omelets once a week.
Okay, not a vegan. Vegetarian?
“He had the filet mignon last time he was here, four months ago,” Javier Blazquez, the son of the owner of Casa Lucio in Madrid, told The New York Times in 2010. “The doctors tell him not to eat it, but he does anyway.”
But who cares, right? It’s not like he’s asking us to give up meat, is he?
Clinton urged Americans to stop eating meat products as well, telling the interviewer that veganism is good for “your own well-being” and “your country.”
“The way we consume food and what we consume” are driving up health care costs to unaffordable levels.
“You have to make a conscious decision to change for your own well-being, and that of your family and your country,” he added.
Let them eat salad.
