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.
“Once a week or so, [Clinton] will have a helping of organic salmon or an omelet made with omega-3-fortified eggs, to maintain iron, zinc and muscle mass,” wrote Joe Conason in the AARP magazine’s August/September 2013.
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.
