New Ulm Journal published a scathing editorial titled “Yes, people worry about food, Mr. Hagedorn”
The editorial makes the claim that Jim Hagedorn said that no one in Minnesota has to worry about food. The full context of his quote tells a much different story.
Speaking to Noon Kiwanis Club, Rep Hagedorn who himself grew up on a grain and livestock farm near Truman, serves on the Agriculture Committee and is assigned to the livestock and nutrition subcommittees praised the farmers for making sure that American Citizens have unprecedented access to food compared to socialist countries like Venezuela.
Venezuelan adult has lost 24 lbs. Babies have no medicine. Families have to walk miles in the heat to get the only meal they may have that day. All bc of the corrupt Maduro regime according to former UN Secretary Nikki Haley.
