If you thought that the former President Barack Obama would stay out of the public eye when he left the office, you were wrong. He went to Italy to give a speech about climate changes at the “Seeds & Chips” conference.
He said that meat eaters have a big impact on the climate emissions. Obama also suggested smaller portions of meat. But, he was interrupted and embarrassed during the speech by the White House former chef who claimed that he cooked ‘thousands of steaks’ for him.
Former President Barack Obama is back (unfortunately) and up to his old tricks.
In his $3 million speech at the “Seeds & Chips: The Global Food Innovation Summit” in Milan, Italy, on Tuesday, the former president wasted no time chastising Americans for how much food they wasted.
He specifically pointed out that meat eaters were contributing to climate change.
In a question and answer segment after his speech with his former chef Sam Kass, Obama explained the issue had to do with cows, claiming that people don’t realize how much cows contribute to global pollution through the amount of methane gas they produce.
As a solution, Obama suggested smaller servings of steaks and alternative, more efficient ways to produce protein.
I don’t know about you, but creating more efficient ways to produce protein sounds like something nobody would want to eat. But it does sound like something that might make it onto former first lady Michelle Obama’s sick school lunch program.
But here’s where things get interesting. As Breitbart reported, Kass apparently interrupted Obama to tell him that over the 10 years he had worked for him, he had cooked him “thousands of steaks.”
Of course, Obama disagreed with Kass’ estimation and Kass backtracked, saying that maybe it was “hundreds” of steaks. But we get the point: Obama likes his steak, and you can bet he won’t be the first in line to stock up on alternative protein, whatever that may be.
Obama probably gave Kass an earful after the summit as they headed back to their four-star hotel.
This kind of hypocrisy among Democrats is not surprising. In fact, it appears that the liberals who preach the most about how climate change are quite good at contributing to the earth’s supposed demise by flying around the globe in their jets and sailing across the seas in their huge yachts.
Obama’s advice on climate change is great. However, he thinks that he shouldn’t take his own advice, but other people should listen to him. He proved again that he is such a hypocrite.
