Cory Booker Can't Find Vegan Food at White House Soiree
Last Tuesday night Senator Cory Booker left a White House event early because of the lack of vegan food.
PETA’s Sexiest Vegetarian Senator attended a cocktail party hosted by President Barack Obama in the newly refurbished White House State Dining Room last week. The semi formal event brought democratic senators together to discuss spending bills, climate change, the recent successful Obamacare Supreme Court ruling, and the Iran nuclear deal over drinks and hors d’oeuvres. Booker, however, didn’t stay long at the soiree claiming there was nothing for him to eat as a vegan.
“I can tell you that there were no vegan options, so I’m going to have to complain to my congressman,” said Booker. “You would think the president would say, ‘Cory’s coming.’ C’mon.”
Later that week, the president and the first lady welcomed 54 kids from around the country at the Kids State Dinner with many of the served meals created by the kid chefs being vegetarian and vegan.
Maybe the White House chef wrote down some of the recipes for future events?
