Bill Bennett On Olympics In Chicago: "I'm Actually For Rio... In Chicago It's Fat People Eating" (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Conservative commentator Bill Bennett certainly didn't endear himself to the residents of Chicago during a recent appearance on CNN's "The Situation Room." Asked for his thoughts about President Obama going to Copenhagen to personally lobby for Chicago as the sight of the 2016 Olympics, Bennett said that he was actually rooting for Rio, Brazil: "I'm actually for Rio. In Rio, it's beautiful women at the beach, and in Chicago, it's fat people eating."

Bennett (not the slimmest man on television) saw one silver lining in Obama's trip: "He is going to have to say some really very positive things about the United States while abroad, which is not something he has been doing."
