NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a video posted to Twitter on Earth Day that the children demanded “Meatless Mondays” and more vegetables in their lunches.
Look — I like a good burger as much as the next guy. But our @NYCSchools students know that livestock farming produces 20 – 50% of greenhouse gas emissions. That’s why they demanded #MeatlessMondays. Saving our planet is about saving their future.

I’ve worked in NYC schools, the kids hate the meatless meals, they aren’t kid friendly

They are demanding it? Come on.

Are you seriously depriving the kids of a decent meal over this green emissions nonsense! What’s next, swim to your vacation in the Caribbean. You are so out of touch, it amazes most of us how you’re still in office! You want to help NYC? Resign!!!

I’m sure if we survey the kids they rather have a burger than vegetarian tacos

I’ve had vegetables in school meals. They are either like mush or dried out pieces that can be used as names. I do not believe you.

Politicians like you need skills training to help you intuitively recognize when you cross the threshold of irrelevance with those you serve. With passion you talk about NYC kids as if their yours. Parents know best how teach guide their kids; go fix your dysfunction government.

Someone please snap a pic of this guy eating a burger on a Monday 🙏🏼. Extra points if he’s riding his SUV to the burger joint 🤣

Just one more reason to skip school on Monday. Three day weekends are nearly as awesome as a good hamburger 🍔
