Trump Campaign Plastic Straws Sold Out

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.

Big League Politics reported:

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.

I reported:

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.

Paper straws in Kansas. I never thought I’d see the day. Rumors are true, it’s barely made it the 5 minute walk from the coffee shop to my office.
