Senator Kamala Harris, a Democratic presidential candidate, wants you to eat less meat and stop using plastic straws. Why? Because she claims it will curb climate change.
For the record, the Earth’s climate has changed periodically for millions of years — pre-dating man’s existence and the advent of hamburgers and plastic straws.
“I love cheeseburgers from time to time,” Harris said last night at a CNN town hall on the “climate crisis.” However, Harris claims that eating meat has been linked to climate change.
Accordingly, if elected president, Harris says she would change U.S. dietary guidelines and have food labels that state that red-meat consumption harms the environment. (You can’t make this up.)
“Climate change has been linked to agriculture and the over-consumption of red meat and also the overproduction of crops,” Harris said.
The junior senator from California was responding to this question from an audience member: “If elected, will you support changes in dietary guidelines? And how will you plan on implementing the changes so that people effectively change their diets [to curb climate change]?”
Harris replied: “Yes. [It should be] a real priority at the highest level of government” to limit meat consumption “because we have a problem in America.”
She added: “Just to be very honest with you, I love cheeseburgers from time to time. I just do. But there has to be also what we do in terms of creating incentives that we will eat in a healthy way, that we will encourage moderation, and that we will be educated about the effects of our eating habits on our environment. And we have to do a much better job of that. The government has to do a much better job of that.”
When CNN host Erin Burnett directly asked Kamala Harris: “Would you support changing the dietary guidelines? You know, the food pyramid, to reduce red meat specifically?”
Harris replied: “Yes. Yes, I would.”
Just so we’re clear: Kamala Harris wants the government to dictate to you what your personal diet should be.
Moreover, Harris wants to ban plastic straws, saying they destroy the environment.
Kamala Harris just said that she wants to BAN plastic straws.
Luckily you can still buy TRUMP STRAWS! So get yours NOW before Democrats try to take them away.

Let this sink in — Harris wants to:
- Ban plastic straws.
- Limit Americans’ meat consumption.
- End fracking.
All of this jibes with the wishes of Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has declared a jihad on farting cows.

Kamala Harris’ anti-meat crusade echoes similar ambitions expressed by fellow Democratic presidential candidate Senator Cory Booker.
As BizPac Review reported, Booker — who recently became a vegan — says all Americans should consider switching to a vegan diet to fight climate change.
Booker, who says his last non-vegan meal was in November 2014, added:
“The tragic reality is this planet simply can’t sustain billions of people consuming industrially produced animal agriculture because of environmental impact.
It’s just not possible, as China, as Africa move toward consuming meat the same way America does because we just don’t have enough land.”
Republican Senator Liz Cheney reacted by tweeting: “Hey Cory Booker, I support PETA – People Eating Tasty Animals.”
