[Ed. – Liberals never weary of this stuff, do they?]
The plastic straws ubiquitous at takeout-focused eateries … have also become a political football as well, another seemingly innocuous item suddenly electrified by the churning political divide.
In Florida, a state bill that was originally meant to ban plastic straws was changed in committee hearings to do the opposite — ban bans on plastic straws. It was passed by the state’s Republican legislature before being vetoed by Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis in the spring.
Some conservatives have taken to posting pictures of themselves drinking with plastic straws on social media, an act of trolling and defiance in the face of liberal policies and environmental degradation.
Trump was asked Friday about the straw ban as news of his campaign’s straws began to circulate.
“I do think we have bigger problems than plastic straws,” he said. “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?”
It is a good question.
