When his wife unveiled the USDA's new nutritional plate yesterday, there definitely wasn't a space for chili dogs.
But that didn't stop Barack Obama wolfing down two in Toledo today - with fries and an extra bowl of chili on the side.
The president happily munched on the unhealthy meal before he visited the city's Chrysler factory, and even teased one of his hosts for ordering ketchup, a faux-pas in his home town of Chicago.
According to USA Today, he told representative Marcy Kaptur: 'Marcy just wants ketchup. By the way, as an aficionado of hot dogs, you shouldn't put ketchup on hot dogs... I'm trying to teach my girls.'

Obama Unveils New Dietary Guidelines, Then Pounds Some Chili Dogs
It would be one thing if he and his wife didn't constantly lecture us about what to eat if they actually practiced what they preach. Instead, she runs around wolfing down cheeseburgers and short ribs and he stuff his pie hole with chili dogs and fries. Well, I guess he at least works it off with all that golf.
