Good news, New Yorkers: Bloomberg says you have the right to get fat

Font Size:

You have his permission. Isn’t that magnanimous of him?

Here’s Bloomberg talking to scofflaw gun criminal David Gregory on Sunday. For some reason, Gregory is pretending to be a libertarian:

“If you want to eat a lot and get fat, you have a right to do it.” Just don’t get fat by drinking more than 16 ounces of soda at a time, I guess? Who the hell knows. I’m sick of trying to figure out how, or if, this food-fascist thinks.

You know, I don’t see Bloomberg posing for any fitness magazines. I really don’t want to know what’s going on under that suit, but the guy’s not exactly a walking billboard for his own policies. Maybe he should spend less time running his yap and more time just plain running. I recommend a short pier.
