Here’s a perfect illustration of politicians who are completely out of touch. New Yorkers are concerned about crime, inflation, etc., and their new Mayor is on a crusade to make them all vegan.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams compared cheese to heroin while promoting plant-based diets Monday.
The mayor, who identifies as a vegan, promoted the diet during a press conference on Monday while also announcing new lifestyle medicine services at some city hospitals that are intended to help patients living with chronic illnesses make healthy lifestyle changes.
After the press conference, he also led a demonstration on making vegan chili, when he made the comparison between cheese and hard drugs.
“I don’t have this great self-discipline. Food is like a drug. You take someone on heroin, put them in one room, and someone hooked on cheese, put [them] in another room, and you take it away, I challenge you to tell me the person who’s hooked on heroin and who’s hooked on cheese,” he said.
