What’s the story behind Chuck Schumer’s ‘plant-based beer’?

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) paired the Oscars with a beer Sunday night, tweeting that it was “plant-based.” The tweet has confused a lot of people. So, let’s break it down.

It all started over the weekend on Fox News’ Kudlow. Host Larry Kudlow reacted to President Joe Biden announcing on Earth Day that he is committed to cutting carbon emissions by 50%. But, according to a study coming out of the University of Michigan, it will cost a great deal to reach these targets proposed by the Biden Green Deal. For instance, Americans would have to cut down immensely on eating animal products. Kudlow poked fun at the idea of middle America giving up dairy, eggs, meat and cheese.

“No burgers on July 4th. No steaks on the barbie. I’m sure middle America is going to love that,” Kudlow joked on his show.

But then the joke got carried away. As Kudlow tried to paint a picture of a completely plant-based barbecue, he made a mistake.

“So get ready,” the host said on his Friday show. “You can throw back a plant-based beer with your grilled brussel sprouts and wave your American flag.” Apparently, he’d forgotten that beer already comes from a plant: barley.

Sen. Schumer took the opportunity to poke some fun with Kudlow, thanking Joe Biden for a plant-based beer. Really, it was Kudlow himself who coined the term. But now, Schumer is taking the heat for appearing to not know that all beer is plant-based. Now you’re in on the joke.

Major border town on ‘brink of collapse’ as migrants ruin agriculture, overrun hospitals and resources

“It will only get worse with Biden’s policies” is the message from a border town that is on the “brink of collapse.” Yuma, Arizona is suffocating under a surge of hundreds of thousands of migrants overloading the area’s resources.

Yuma County Supervisor Jonathan Lines told Fox News that “policies need to be changed when you see an unprecedented amount of people coming across the border that even supersedes what we saw under any of the other presidents for the past 30 years.”

“And they’re coming because they said that Biden told them to come, that we have an open border” Lines continued, as overcrowded and overloaded food banks, hospitals and shelters threaten food security.

Customs and Border Patrol sources told Fox News on Sunday 1.2 million illegal migrants have escaped Border Patrol since Biden took office.

“The problem that we’re foreseeing right now is there’s a couple of big waves coming,” a Yuma resident and fifth-generation farmer, Hank Auza, told Fox News. “Yuma can’t support that. It will overwhelm the system here.”

In December, another border town El Paso, Texas, declared a state of emergency as thousands of migrants camped in the streets during below-freezing temperatures. “Many migrant shelters were over capacity, leading the city to use the local airport for temporary refuge” reports Fox News.

A crucial aspect of the crisis that many do not consider and the mainstream media does not cover is the damage done to agriculture. “Our fields are monitored and audited and tested for different pathogens,” Yuma farmer Alex Muller told Fox News. “You can’t have people walking through the field.”

A fifth-generation farmer and resident Hank Auza said Yuma’s fields, which produce 93% of the nation’s leafy greens in the winter months, have faced a fair amount of migrant traffic, risking damage to their crops due to foodborne illness concerns. He also said many residents can’t get into the city’s only hospital.

“People have had a hard time getting into the hospital because the hospital has been so full of” illegal immigrants, Auza told Fox News.
