Pushing back against bizarre and unpopular left wing narrative that paper straws are somehow going to save the planet from global warming, destruction of the ocean, and virtually every other societal ill, President Donald Trump is now selling genuine plastic straws on the campaign website.
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.
Now, President Trump is pushing back in the culture war by selling plastic straws, complete with the iconic “TRUMP” logo.
“Liberal paper straws don’t work,” reads the product description on the website. “STAND WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP and buy your pack of recyclable straws today.”
The 9-inch straws are BPA-free, and a pack of ten costs $15. The “TRUMP” logo is laser etched onto the straws, which will likely increase the level of triggering of leftists if the straws were seen in public.
This journalist is happy to agree with President Trump’s sentiment, if not his price point.
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.
As the left’s misguided quest to save the world my inconveniencing Americans continues, President Trump is keen to poke fun at their attempts.
The likely suspects in the left wing media are already coming unglued at the prospect, with The Root writing the headline “Trump’s Selling Overpriced Straws to Idiots Who Drink Bud Light With a Beer Cozy”.
WATCH: Joe Biden Reads Teleprompter Incorrectly: “I Got to the Senate 180 Years Ago”
That kind of experience is unmatched.
Joe Biden stated that he “got to the Senate 180 years ago” when delivering a scripted campaign speech from a room in his Delaware home on Saturday.

That would’ve been in 1840, when Martin Van Buren was President. There were 52 Senators at the time, and the Democratic Party controlled the chamber, with a Whig minority in opposition. Biden was talking about supporting first responders and firefighters, who would’ve existed in a vastly different capacity in the mid-19th century.
Biden did laugh a little bit after he made the error, which seems to have stemmed from faulty teleprompter instructions or Biden simply misreading the screen in front of him.

Biden’s campaign appearances have been almost entirely scripted as of late, with the Democratic Party’s elder figure even going so far as reading from a teleprompter during interviews.
It’s very sad that the Democratic Party elite and Joe Biden’s handlers have allowed this to continue. A man with an arguably severe level of cognitive decline should not be the President of a nation of 330 million people. That is not right.
However, you almost can’t blame them for binding him concisely to the words on the teleprompter. Unscripted campaign appearances have proved to be even more of a disaster, with Biden forgetting the words to the Pledge of Allegiance in a campaign speech earlier this week, for example.
