TV preacher Pat Robertson, who once ran for president and had the support of millions of Americans, set the record straight on macaroni and cheese today while hosting yet another episode of The 700 Club.
It’s “a black thing” and he’s never tasted it, he said.
The informative exchange came after Robertson showed a clip of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice saying she enjoyed the gooey delicacy, but only during Thanksgiving, which is almost as unbelievable a statement.
The news shocked the 81-year-old evangelist.
“What is this mac & cheese? Is it a black thing?”
African-American 700 Club co-host Kristi Watts said yes, and that everyone else in the world needed to get on board and start eating more macaroni and cheese.
The show was not, to my knowledge, sponsored by Kraft.
Robertson is no stranger to controversy.
* In September, he said it is OK to divorce someone with Alzheimer’s because it’s a “kind of death.”
* In 2010, Robertson blamed a devastating earthquake in Haiti on that island nation’s alleged “pact to the devil.”
* In 2005, he seemed to suggest Hurricane Katrina may have been God’s punishment for America’s abortion policy.
