Today, President Obama visited a food bank in Flint, Michigan. With cameras rolling, President Obama took a sip from a glass of filtered tap water..

“Generally, I haven’t been doing stunts. But, here you go,” said Obama, as he raised the glass to his mouth.

Flint residents have been told by Governor Rick Snyder, and the EPA, that drinking filtered tap water is fine—however, pregnant women and children under the age of six are still advised to drink only bottled water.

Obama urged parents in the community of Flint to continue to have their children checked for lead poisoning, he also said the work to bring Flint’s water back to normal could take up to two more years.

An investigation into who is at fault for the city’s water poisoning crisis is ongoing.
