In a new interview with VegNews, a vegan news website, Democrat Presidential candidate Cory Booker said that the planet cannot sustain meat eaters and that he stopped eating eggs because it did not “align with [his] spirit.”
Booker’s interview with VegNews led to him being roundly mocked for his radical vegan views, which include the notion that the planet simply cannot sustain the environment hits that come from providing enough meat for Americans to consume, and that eating eggs is spiritually unhealthy.
It is worth noting that Booker, who believes eating eggs is immoral, is in favor of expanding abortion access, thus valuing chicken eggs more than human eggs.
From the VegNews interview:
You see the planet earth moving towards what is the Standard American Diet. We’ve seen this massive increase in consumption of meat produced by the industrial animal agriculture industry. The tragic reality is this planet simply can’t sustain billions of people consuming industrially produced animal agriculture because of environmental impact. It’s just not possible, as China, as Africa move toward consuming meat the same way America does because we just don’t have enough land.
While explaining that his last “non-vegan” meal occurred in 2014, Booker also explained that it took him a long period of time to give up eating eggs, saying that “Suddenly, eating those eggs for me was something that didn’t align with my spirit, and I could feel it,” and adding “I finally just made a decision that I was going to become vegan.”
Booker also noted that it is not the place of American politicians to “preach” about what to eat, and that he is pro-individual choice when it comes to dietary matters. He then proceeded to explain that his moral decision to forego animal products is a “value” based decision, and that he would talk about it whenever asked.
“The reality is, I just want to live my life in accordance with my values with an unapologetic authenticity,” said Booker, “I think that’s what we want from our elected officials.”
Appearing unable to escape negative press, this truly bizarre interview comes only one week after Booker said Virginians should prioritize allegations of racism over allegations of rape, and called on Virginians to ignore Democrat Virginia Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax’s multiple allegations of sexual assault and instead call for Democrat Virginia Governor Ralph Northam to step down because of his racist yearbook photo.
Department of Justice Investigating After FBI Finds Nine Pennsylvania Mail-In Ballots Discarded in Ditch – All for Donald Trump
The Department of Justice announced that it has begun an investigation into the destruction of nine mail-in ballots found in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania.
In a statement, the DOJ announced that the nine ballots had been found “discarded.” Seven ballots that were unsealed were all cast for Donald Trump, and two others were sealed, and remain unopened.
The FBI is reportedly investigating the suspicious ballot disposal.
A DOJ statement is describing the destroyed ballots as military ballots. Rules and procedures exist for military service members to cast votes in their home states when they’re stationed at installations across the country and overseas.
Since Monday, FBI personnel working together with the Pennsylvania State Police have conducted numerous interviews and recovered and reviewed certain physical evidence. Election officials in Luzerne County have been cooperative. At this point we can confirm that a small number of military ballots were discarded. Investigators have recovered nine ballots at this time. Some of those ballots can be attributed to specific voters and some cannot. All nine ballots were cast for presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Our inquiry remains ongoing and we expect later today to share our up to date findings with officials in Luzerne County. It is the vital duty of government to ensure that every properly cast vote is counted.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany brought up the concerning election interference in Thursday’s press conference, citing the incident as an example of why President Trump and many Americans are highly concerned about the novel use of national mail-in electioneering in 2020.

Pennsylvania is arguably the most crucial and closely contested state in the 2020 election. The outcome of the entire contest could very conceivably be decided by a few votes in the state.
