Health Group Scolds President Obama for Eating Junk Food in Public

| by Michael Allen

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) is asking President Obama to stop eating hamburgers and hot dogs in public, now that the election is over.

The PCRM also objected in May to President Obama's habit of eating unhealthy foods with his staff, which supposedly glamorized consuming junk.

PCRM Founder Neal Barnard, on Wednesday, said in a statement: "Of course, President Obama had to pose for these photos for political reasons, but now it’s time for dispensation. Politicians will always have to kiss babies and cut ribbons, but we can now officially take junk food out of the political picture."

President Obama has made a habit of stopping in at Washington, D.C., grills and treating staff to lunch at Good Stuff Eatery, reports
