Fit and Trim Bill Clinton Weighs in on Veggie Pluses
We’ve seen politicians flip-flop on various issues and positions (which can lead to dire consequences for animals). But when it comes to maintaining his trimmer, healthier self, former President Bill Clinton wants to be sure he’s around to enjoy any future grandchildren—and so he’s sticking with the diet that melted 20 pounds from his frame in the weeks before his vegan daughter’s wedding. PETA has put together a gift basket to be delivered to his Harlem office—in the shape of a giant saxophone—full of tasty vegan treats in order to wish him well.
In the two-minute video in this Yahoo news article, when interviewer Willow Bay asks Clinton if he’s vegan or vegetarian, he responds, “Pretty much,” and then cites a study proving that people “have seen their bodies start to heal themselves” on a zero-cholesterol (bye-bye, butter!), plant-based diet. It’s ad-worthy material!
