Fox Business kicked off Thanksgiving with a bad joke about food stamps. Discussing Newark, New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker’s challenge to live on food stamps for one week, Fox News pundit Andrea Tantaros offensively commented that living on a $133 monthly allowance for food would make her look ‘fabulous’.
She further added, ‘I’d be so skinny. I mean, the camera adds ten pounds, it really does. I’d be looking great.’
Tantaros may not be aware, but a harsh reality is that a record number of Americans actually rely on this budget, that is less than $1.50 per meal.
