Okay, I don’t watch a lot of TV, so I may have seen James Corden (sp?) but I don’t really know who he is. (Did I see him in the trailer for Cats?) So I don’t know the context of the clip that I’d seen after the fact, apparently an interview he did with Nancy Pelosi showing off her ice cream collection.
This was the comment in the room when we saw that clip: “What is she, channelling her inner Marie Antoinette?” Because to show what appeared to be side-by-side restaurant caliber refrigerator freezer units, one of which had a drawer full of ice cream products just seemed rather tone deaf when there are people who have been out of work for weeks, struggling to put food - basics like eggs, milk, veggies - in the $799 'fridge they got on sale. One minute, I’m watching PSAs with out-of-the-limelight celebrities encouraging me to find ways to help feed the struggling and unemployed in my community and then I see this clip.
For the record, I have 1.5 pints of Talenti ice cream in my freezer, plus two six pack boxes of mochi bites and two muffins I froze from a trip to my favorite coffee shop (window service only, must wear a mask) After that, it’s a little meat, bags of frozen vegetables that were in the 99 cent bin, two bags of frozen tortellini, a box of jalapeño poppers (cream cheese, not cheddar) and a 12 piece bag of frozen biscuits that have been in there so long I forgot when I bought them and think I probably ought to throw them out, but I’m keeping them just in case.
