Can Americans Tolerate a Vegan President?

It’s not every presidential candidate that kicks off their campaign with an interview with VegNews, but we suppose Cory Booker (D-NJ) is desperate to find something that will set him apart from the other Democrats in the field. As such, he is playing up what makes him unique – namely, that he considers himself a vegan. In an interview with the magazine this month, the New Jersey senator said that he adopted the vegan lifestyle when he realized that eating eggs “didn’t align with my spirit.”

Oh boy.

From the Washington Free Beacon:

While claiming he does not want to lecture Americans on their diets, Booker says Americans need to be nudged into fake cheese because the planet cannot sustain the “environmental impact” of the food industry.

“You see the planet earth moving towards what is the Standard American Diet,” Booker said. “We’ve seen this massive increase in consumption of meat produced by the industrial animal agriculture industry.”

“The tragic reality is this planet simply can’t sustain billions of people consuming industrially produced animal agriculture because of environmental impact,” he said. “It’s just not possible.”

Booker says the “devastating impact” of greenhouse gases produced by the meat industry is “just not practical.”

“The numbers just don’t add up,” he said. “We will destroy our planet unless we start figuring out a better way forward when it comes to our climate change and our environment.”

Booker is thought to be a relative longshot when it comes to winning the nomination, but his candidacy does bring to mind an interesting question: Can Americans really tolerate a vegan president? As a nation, we are divided, to be sure. But we still share some things in common across the board. By and large, we are still very much a carnivorous people. Furthermore, we don’t like to be lectured by holier-than-thou individuals, especially when they are politicians. As hard as it is to stomach a tofu burger, it will be much tougher to stomach four years of a president who wants us to trade our porterhouses for smoked cauliflower.

Vegans are not only sanctimonious much of the time, they are also downright strange. They belong to a group that includes PETA and protesters who “moo” outside steakhouses. Do we really want a president who associates with people like that? Is that the kind of influence we need on an international stage? We submit that it is not.

Hey, what a man does at his private dinner table is his own business. We just aren’t sure this nation is ready to vote for a guy who can’t enjoy a cheeseburger now and again. We won’t say veganism is un-American, but…well…

  1. The best one I’ve heard in a while,eggs don’t align with his spirit,to him it must be a spiritual experience to have breakfast,I just had eggs and biscuits for breakfast,so I must be a spiritual giant by now,I have eggs several times a week,so I must now be qualified to rewrite the bible,Cory Booker not so much,he doesn’t eat eggs and must be made exempt from the white house.

  2. It seems the more DEMOCOMMUNISTS ‘”come out” to “run” the more MORONIC they sound.
    PRESIDENT TRUMP is SLOWLY getting this country back on track and we sure as HELL do NOT want another DEMOCOMMUNIST trying to run it back into the ground again. (LIKE OBUNGHOLE, the GAY , MOOSLIME , FRAUD , POS) we had to endure for 8 years thanks to PROVEN VOTER FRAUD, and CROOKED , CORRUPT, DEMOCOMMUNISTS shoving him down our throats as a “legitimate “president”.

  3. The answer is NO! And to the point, the United States cannot stomach anyone like Cory Booker for President either. We are sick and tired of politicians who think they know better than we do on how to live our lives. NO to Booker and NO to anyone the DemoRAT Death Party puts up for the Presidency.

  4. Why not? We tolerated the Imam of the Rainbow Mosque so a vegan should be no problem.
    One eats meat, the other does not. Their choice.

  5. Have you ever met a vegan who didn’t tell you in the first 3 minutes that he was a vegan? Even if you weren’t discussing food? Did you care at all? Me neither.

  6. If he were to become president, which he won’t, you would see meat slowly start to disappear. Democrats like to tell the rest of us how to live. No more communist in office, please.

  7. This guy is same the Harry’s,Warren,Beto,and another Democratic people running for president Big Fraud political liberal socialist democratic political is not have one millimeter the Leadership

  8. Strange these comments are so virulent. It’s just a special diet. I’ve been vegan for 6 years after my cholesterol hit 300 and I ended up allergic to statin drugs. I have no problem with others eating meat and dairy, I wish I could, and miss it. Yes I wear leather shoes and handbags. Not all vegans are freaks.

  9. Booker is liberal clown puppet who can KMA he is a sideshow freak scumbag cry baby grow up little boy your irrelevant to the American people loser

  10. Booker needs to eat like Trump all those cheese burgers and fries makes you healthy or not. No don’t need a vegan in the white house Trump and his burgers and friesteakn just see the WH dinners with tofu instead of as will be their,Yuck awful tofu. Not to worry you won’t be there, Trump and his burgers and fries will .I can the just see you at the WH at big dinner served tofu. Ha Ha so funny.
