Only hours after the “TRUMP” brand plastic straws were listed on the official campaign website they have completely sold out, showing supporters of President Donald Trump are both willing to donate heavily to his reelection campaign and have a brilliant sense of humor.
As left wing strongholds including the state of California, the city of Seattle, and Starbucks have all banned plastic straws, President Trump’s campaign began selling straws with the “TRUMP” logo on its website.
A few short hours after the flags were listed on the campaign website, they completely sold out.
“Liberal paper straws don’t work,” reads the campaign website. “STAND WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP and buy your pack of recyclable straws today.”
Unfortunately, there is now a large, grey, “SOLD OUT” notice where supporters were previously able to order them.
It appears the majority of the president’s supporters are also intelligent enough to understand that American usage of plastic straws barely registers a blip compared to massive plastic pollution from Asia and Africa.
California and other Democrat stronghold states are, almost in some sort of coordinated effort, demanding paper straws be used in place of plastic. According to Business Insider, plastic straws have now been banned in the entire state of California, the city of Seattle, and in Starbucks stores and on American Airlines.
This is apparently in a misguided effort to save the oceans and marine life, even though the overwhelming majority of plastic pollution in the ocean comes from China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam, and Sri Lanka. Most of the top 20 countries on the list of those who widely mismanage their plastic waste are in Asia, with a smattering of African countries included, along with Brazil.
The United States ranks at 20 in the list of countries who mismanage plastic, though Our World In Data lists the United States as a country that has close to 0 per cent of mismanaged plastic.
This journalist also had an unfortunate run in with paper straws at a cafe in downtown Wichita, Kansas of all places. Ironically, while the straw was made of paper, both the cup and its lid were made of plastic.
At a recent trip to a cafe in downtown Wichita, Kansas, I was horrified to be given a paper straw. Not only did the paper begin to deteriorate both in my mouth and in the iced coffee, the decision to go with a paper straw did not make sense for another reason.
The straw may have been made of paper, but both the cup and the lid were made of plastic.

Bloomberg Takes Lead in New National Democratic Primary Poll
The Democratic party might actually sell its nomination to the authoritarian oligarch.
Michael Bloomberg has taken the lead in a new national poll of the Democratic presidential primary, suggesting that the party may actually sell its nomination to the radical authoritarian oligarch.
The poll from Rasmussen Reports, released on Friday, has the former New York City mayor taking 26% support from national Democratic likely primary voters. Joe Biden comes in second with 22%, and Bernie Sanders comes in third with 18%.
The poll is possibly a sign of the strength of Bloomberg’s candidacy, which has adopted an approach of almost openly buying the support of prominent Democrats and carpet-bombing the airwaves of Super Tuesday states with unprecedented levels of campaign ad spending.
Bloomberg wasn’t even on the ballot in the Iowa Caucuses or New Hampshire primary, so his strength is real electoral contests is yet to be demonstrated. But it’s clear the ultra-billionaire, with a whopping net worth of more than $50 billion dollars, is a serious contender for the nomination, even though he shamelessly intends to buy it.
Ultimately Bloomberg’s biggest hindrance may be an abundance of “moderate” centrist candidates who are still competing in the Democratic primary. Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg draw from the wing of the Democratic Party opposed to a Bernie Sanders nomination, who appears to be the implicit front-runner after winning the Iowa and New Hampshire primaries.
Bloomberg initially entered the race with an unwritten desire to block Sanders. The Vermont Democratic socialist takes the lead in several other polls of the national race, and he largely appears to be the candidate to beat until a candidate from the centrist wing can muster enough support to dominate their lane of the party.
The authoritarian mayor’s performance in the Super Tuesday primaries may dictate whether or not his campaign can actually take the nomination, or is little more than an expensive vanity project.
