Have you had any meat-based beers lately? Us neither. But according to Trump’s former economic advisor and current Fox News host Larry Kudlow, those delicious and (mythical) brews are about to be ripped away from the American people.
On Fox Business Friday, Kudlow ranted about how President Biden’s participation in the proposed Green New Deal would end Americans’ consumption of meat and dairy products. It seems Kudlow isn’t aware that beers are made with barley, grain, yeast, and hops, because he cautioned Americans that this deal would force them to exclusively consume plant-based beer.
“You can throw back a plant-based beer with your grilled Brussels sprouts and wave your American flag,” Kudlow said on Fox Business Friday. “Call it July 4th Green.”
Many Twitter users were quick to jump on the bizarre claim and question exactly what Kudlow thought beer was made from, if not plants. Others mocked the Fox host’s intelligence, and even Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer joined in on the fun, writing: “Excited to be watching the Oscars with an ice cold plant-based beer.”
