Is it a ‘chick’ or ‘fear’? Trump and ‘chicken’?

FOX NEWS — President Donald Trump and his Cabinet have been slammed for saying that dairy products, particularly milk, are the “worst” food they’ve ever eaten.
It’s been dubbed “The Chicken Whisperer” and has been used as fodder for some political attack ads and jokes.
The president himself has defended his decision to use the term “chickens” when speaking about dairy and dairy products.
“I would say, ‘Oh, my God, I would say this is the worst food I’ve ever had,'” Trump said in February at the Conservative Political Action Conference, a gathering of conservatives.
The White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said the president’s “fears” were unfounded and that the term does not refer to dairy products in any way. “
The Associated Press reported Thursday that Trump has not said the word “chicken” or “fear” to describe dairy products since February.
“He thinks that it is bad for the American public to eat a lot of dairy products.” “
That’s not what it means, the president has made that very clear,” Sanders said.
“He thinks that it is bad for the American public to eat a lot of dairy products.”
A spokesperson for Trump did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Trump’s former campaign manager Kellyanne Conway told Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly on Thursday that the “Chicken Whisperers” term is not “common” for him.
“It’s not common, but it’s not something I hear,” Conway said.
Trump has said that if elected, he would like to have “a country where the dairy industry is completely free.”
“The only way you’re going to get there is if the dairy farmers are completely free, and I would be the first one to let them do it,” Trump told O’Brien in an interview last week.
“Because they’re the only people who make our milk, so they make it, but I want to make it.”
O’Rriens asked Trump if he’d be the “first one to say ‘go ahead and make it,’ ” a reference to the president saying earlier this month that he wants to see the country “go dairy free.”
Trump said that he was not “going to do it.”
“I think you’ll be surprised at what people are saying,” Trump said, adding that “if you do it, they’ll be happy.”
The president has also been criticized for not being clear about whether he meant the term when speaking to Fox News.
There’s a whole group of people that I think would be horrified by it.”
