It amazes me that some politicians allow themselves to be used for stunts. Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner is one such man who attended a Black History Month event and after drinking chocolate milk, shouted 'DIVERSITY!' to the assembled crowd.
According to Kim Janssen at the Chicago Tribune, it was 'an awkward onstage appearance this week'! Apparently the Governor 'drank a glass of chocolate milk to demonstrate his belief in diversity. "It's really, really good," Rauner said after taking a sip of the sugary drink. "Diversity!"
So he's not quite as dumb as you think1 He was taking part in someone else's stunt which was designed to show that diversity is better. It started with a glass of regular milk. Then they added the syrup which sinks to the bottom and then it gets stirred up before the Governor drank it!
