Democrats Call For Labels Warning Consumers If A Company's CEO Voted For Trump
Politics · Jul 10, 2020 ·

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other Democratic representatives proposed a new law today that would help consumers make better-informed decisions when it comes to really political purchases like beans.

The new law would force CEOs who voted for Trump to disclose this important nutritional information on all the company's products.

"When you're shopping for beans, like, the first thing you want to know is, like, if the CEO is a Trump supporter," said Ocasio-Cortez. "My abuelita and I would, like, go shopping at the bodega when I was growing up in hard-knock Yorktown Heights. And she'd always tell me, 'Mija, the first thing to know about buying good food is you have to make sure the CEO of the company isn't a Republican.' And, like, that always stuck with me."

When asked what nutritional value this could possibly have, Ocasio-Cortez called the reporter racist and said he was "catcalling" her.

The bill passed the House, but Mitch McConnell was too busy confirming hundreds of conservative judges to review it and says the bean discussion will be on the backburner for now.
