Barack and Michelle Obama never lacked for ways of touting their “holier than thou” attitude whenever it came to liberal issues they were supporting, like global warming, school lunches, among other agendas.
But Barack Obama’s hypocrisy was never more obvious than with what he said about eating meat while speaking before the food innovation summit in Milan, Italy. He basically chided Americans for consuming so much meat, namely steak, and adding to the world’s climate problems through greenhouse gas emissions.
I don’t know the reasoning or logic behind Barack Obama’s claim that steaks contribute to global warming, but his latest attack on Americans’ food choices has come back to bite him big time! White House chef, Sam Kass, revealed a little secret about Barack’s meat consumption. Evidently, the former president likes his steaks too, and a lot of them!
Right Wing News revealed:
This week, former President Barack Obama was busy in Milan telling a food innovation summit that more people eating meat would cause a dramatic rise in climate-changing emissions.
As reported in Breitbart, the President said:
“As people want to increase meat consumption, that in turn is spiking the growth of greenhouse emissions coming out of the agricultural sector,” Obama said, pointing to countries that were consuming more meat.
While everyone else is busy with Trump’s two scoops of ice cream, what really turned interesting was the brief argument that erupted between Obama and his former chef, Sam Kass, who had spent almost 10 years cooking for him.
Obama helpfully let the crowd know that he’s both smarter and more environmentally conscious than them:
“People aren’t as familiar with the impact of cows and methane,” Obama said, adding that “as people want to increase more meat consumption, that in turn is spiking the growth of greenhouse emissions coming out of the agricultural sectors.”
The amount of cows, Obama explained, were contributing to global pollution, alluding to the amounts of methane gas emissions from cow herds.
“No matter what, we are going to see an increase in meat consumption,” Obama said, pointing to developing economies in China, India, Indonesia, and Vietnam. More advanced countries, Obama said, would have to teach people to “have a smaller steak” and explore reductions to their meat consumption.
“What it does mean is that we’re also going to have to find ways to produce protein in a more efficient way,” he said.
Anyway, as his lecture went on, Chef Kass told the audience that he had probably cooked “thousands of steaks” for Obama before Obama interrupted him and said, “I don’t think, thousands.”
“Well hundreds maybe,” came the respond from Kass, pointing out that he’s cooked for Obama for a decade.
In the end, Obama did admit that he’s not a vegetarian by any means but helpfully added that he still “respects vegetarians.”
Don’t just love Obama’s self-righteous demeanor? Isn’t it comforting to know that when it comes to making sure I don’t eat too much meat, stink up the world, and destroy the environment, Obama’s got our backs? I just hope he doesn’t get a tummy ache from that big T-bone he’ll probably be eating tonight!
