Let the president eat his (hot) dog
A health Nazi organization has doubled down on its calls for President Obama to stop eating junk food in public, now that the election’s over:
The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) made headlines in May when it filed a petition with the White House objecting to Obama’s habit of grabbing hamburgers, hot dogs and other unhealthy foods with his staff and visiting dignitaries.
After PCRM last criticized Obama, a group funded by the restaurant, food and beverage industries came to his defense.
“Let the president eat his hot dog,” said the Center for Consumer Freedom, which blasted PCRM as a “phony doctors group” with a covert “vegan agenda.”
PCRM has come under fire in the past for its provocative campaigns, including billboards that read, “Hot Dogs Cause Butt Cancer.” The group advocates for preventive medicine, healthy eating and alternatives to animal testing.
