Gov. Polis took a victory lap and arrogantly claimed credit for the widely successful Meat In Day across Colorado Saturday as residents celebrated the state’s agriculture and livestock industries by eating all that it offered.
At least we think he was serious.
That’s a pretty bold move for Polis to walk back his original “Meat Out Day” proclamation that eating meat is cruel, kills people and the environment.
It’s that declaration that prompted the entire industry to rise up against the governor with their own day to eat meat.
This isn’t the first time Polis slammed the agriculture and livestock industry then tried to make up for it with an appearance at the 2019 version of Meat In Day.
He actually pretended to be sorry then. Polis has since dropped all pretense.
Fool us once, shame on you …
