But he didn’t just stop there. He had to open his mouth and give an arrogant speech… and boy was it arrogant. He set a new record for arrogance with this debacle.
In his $3 million speech at the “Seeds & Chips: The Global Food Innovation Summit” in Milan, Italy, on Tuesday, Obama went after Americans for how much food they wasted.
“What’s true is I’m not a vegetarian,” the former president admitted. “That doesn’t mean we can’t teach [people] to have a smaller steak… This also means we’re going to have to find way start producing protein in a more efficient way.”
“I think people naturally understand… air pollution, so they can make the connection between air pollution and greenhouse gasses,” Obama said. “People aren’t as familiar with the impact of cows, of methane. “
What a dunce – is he blaming cows for global warming?
Obama added “as people want to increase more meat consumption, that in turn is spiking the growth of greenhouse emissions coming out of the agricultural sectors.”
It was right at that moment when former White House Chef Sam Kass jumped in and humiliated Obama.
Kass said, he “cooked thousands of steaks” for the president, but Obama was not going to be upstaged.
“I don’t think, thousands,” he protested.
“Well hundreds maybe,” Kass backtracked. “I’ve been cooking for you for 10 years.”
“What is true is that I’m not a vegetarian,” Obama admitted, adding that he “respected vegetarians.”
