President Donald Trump is devising new creative ways to monetize fervor against social justice insanity. As liberals target plastic straws for extinction, the Trump campaign has started to sell reusable plastic straws with “Trump” written on the side of them.
“Liberal paper straws don’t work,” the product description reads on the official Trump store. “STAND WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP and buy your pack of recyclable straws today.”
The decision has been incredibly lucrative for the Trump campaign, as the straw sales sold out almost immediately raising $200,000 for Trump’s re-election efforts.
Our amazing recyclable @realDonaldTrump straws are once again available. We sold out our first several thousand orders. Many new donors for 2020. Thank you!!

More than half of all Straw purchasers were BRAND NEW small dollar donors.

Trump has made a public address about the scourge of paper straws, which are being pushed by liberals for the purposes of environmentalism.
“I do think we have bigger problems than plastic straws,” Trump asserted. “So you have a little straw, but what about the plates, the wrappers and everything else that are much bigger, and they’re made of the same material?”
California has instituted restrictions against plastic straws, and customers at restaurants in the state cannot receive a plastic straw unless they specifically ask for one. Washington D.C. fines restaurants between $100 and $800 if they are caught giving plastic straws to their customers.
Liberals are enraged that Trump is counter-signaling their latest environmental bugaboo.
“Donald Trump has based his entire presidency on lies and divisiveness, so it is no surprise that he is selling plastic straws because his presidency is a cheap throwaway with disastrous long term consequences,” said Greenpeace Oceans Campaign Director John Hocevar.
“As usual, Trump has either missed the point or is outwardly lying to his base,” Hocevar added.
“Similar to Trump’s speech on the environment a couple weeks earlier, where he falsely claimed credit for the “cleanest air” and most “crystal clear” water in the world (while ignoring climate change), there’s a prideful ignorance about how humans are affecting our world,” wrote Miyoko Sakashita, who works as director of the Center for Biological Diversity’s oceans program, in an op/ed.
“Trump and his people can keep sucking plastic straws and pretend that’s some kind of rebellion instead of just willful wastefulness,” Sakashita added.
With anger culminating against the liberal-driven paper straw epidemic, Trump has yet again scored points with an American public that is becoming increasingly sick and tired of left-wing control freaks.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
