Remember John Schnatter? He’s the former CEO and founder the of Papa John’s pizza chain, and he was given the boot by the company’s board of directors in 2018 for using the N-word in a conference call with company officials.
But now Schnatter is back and appearing at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) being held this week in Dallas.
According to HuffPost, Schnatter said the reason Papa John’s used to be one of the best pizzas on the market had everything to do with his right-wing political beliefs:
He touched on the company’s pizza once getting top rankings among the pizza chains before claiming its pies are now “down with Little Caesars.”
Schnatter said that quality, service and culture drive a business before suggesting one ingredient that made Papa John’s successful.
“We built the whole company on conservative values. Conservative ideology has two of the most critical attributes: truth and God,” Schnatter said.
“If you run your life on principle… you’re going to win.”
So God made the pizza taste better? I thought that only worked with communion wafers. Guess I need to go back and read the Book of Pie over again.
This isn’t the first time Schnatter has left people shaking their heads after he said bizarre things during an interview.
A sweat-laden Schnatter told Kentucky’s WDRB-TV that a “day of reckoning” would arrive after board members “stole” the company from him.
Schnatter also suggested he “had” 40 pizzas in 30 days during the bizarre interview. He later weighed in on the potential food feat and said he wasn’t referring to eating the pizzas.
Wow! Basil is a hell of a drug.
It’s good to know that Papa can still find a gig that will allow him to spew his bigotry and deranged view of the world. CPAC is the perfect place for failed losers. Just ask Donald Trump.
