Monsanto lobbyist claims weed killer ‘safe to drink,’ then refuses to drink it (VIDEO)

Monstanto lobbyist Patrick Moore claimed that the company’s Roundup weed killer was safe to drink by humans in an interview with French TV. He then chickens out when he realizes that the interviewer actually had some for him to drink!

“You can drink a whole quart of it and it won’t hurt you,” Moore claims.

“You want to drink some?” asks the interviewer. “We have some here.”

“I’d be happy to, actually,” Moore says, but adds, “Not really. But I know it wouldn’t hurt me.”

“If you say so, I have some,” the interviewer says.

“I’m not stupid,” Moore declares and ultimately walks out!

LOL. This is the best.

Canal+ is investigating claims that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup herbicide, was increasing the rate of cancer in Argentina. Moore tried to defend his bosses then failed spectacularly.
