Presidential Food Obsessions

Slide 4 of 20

William J. Clinton (1993-2001)

As the governor of Arkansas, Bill Clinton frequented Doe’s Eat Place in Little Rock where he often ate greasy jalapeño cheeseburgers with lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise, pickles and onions. Later, while in the White House, the President’s penchant for McDonald’s fast food was spoofed on Saturday Night Live. After two heart-related surgeries in 2004 and 2010, Clinton became a vegan in 2011.
