The Origin Story Of GOP Outrage Over Imaginary Biden Red Meat Ban

By Sunday afternoon, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) had dubbed President Joe Biden the “Hamburglar.” Pictures of steaks and hamburgers were rocketing around the rightwing media ecosystem, escorted by captions screaming that Biden’s climate plan would force Americans to cut 90 percent of red meat from their diets. We had entered the era of baseless meat fear-mongering.

Abit of seaweed in cattle feed could reduce methane emissions from beef cattle as much as 82 percent, according to new findings from researchers at the University of California, Davis. The results, published today (March 17) in the journal PLOS ONE, could pave the way for the sustainable production of livestock throughout the world.

He was always, in my experience with him as the economic adviser or whatever the hell he was supposed to be, the sloppiest, most slapdash person you could imagine in public life. He needs a quick pejorative so of course “plant-based” is bad, waaah I don’t wanna eat broccoli it’s gross, and then he slaps it on something you have on the Fourth which is beer and hey presto “plant-based” beer makes Baby Jesus sad and do you remember what it was like with these freaks running the country? OMG. OMG OMG OMG.
