Joe Biden Wants to Ban Plastic Bags

Former Vice President Joe Biden has told a voter at a campaign stop that he agrees completely with her statement that plastic bags should be banned. Apparently in Biden’s mind, cutting down millions of trees every year to make paper bags is much, much better.

Isn’t he brilliant?

“I agree with you 100 percent,” Biden said. “We should not be allowing plastic. What we should do is phasing [sic] it out.”

Now, please note that President Trump just ordered the U.S. military to carry out a strike against Iranian General Soleimani, one of the world’s most influential terror masterminds. That’s serious business. It shows us what difficult decisions the leader of the free world, so to speak, has to make.

But what does Biden focus on? That’s right: plastic bags. To him and his fellow radical-leftist Democrats, that is one of the major issues demanding the president’s attention and intervention.

“Make American Great Again, one plastic bag at a time.” It’s catchy, isn’t it?

It goes to show how sad it is that the Democratic Party has been hijacked by the radical left. A few years ago, a person who asked such a question would be laughed at — or at least the candidate would’ve quickly tried to change the subject. Not in 2020, however. Oh no, Democratic candidates — the frontrunner even! — actually have to talk about plastic bags as if they find the subject truly fascinating, and as if it keeps them literally awake at night.

You’d laugh if it wasn’t so incredibly pathetic.

There is also good news, however. The more Democrats obsess over such “vital” issues, the likelier it is that Trump will be reelected in a landslide. After all, unlike Biden and his friends, normal American voters are thinking about actual major issues like the economy, jobs, trade, and national security.
