Unicorn Wrangeling

In a meeting of the tweets, Ben Shapiro addresses the recent vote on supporting Ocasio Cortezs’  “Green New Deal”  that resulted in exactly zero votes from fellow Democrats. Of course the Republicans knew it would not pass. They just wanted the Democrats, who had pushed for recognition of the GND, to go on record as supporting the “pie in the sky” built upon outlawing bovine flatulence, a refitting of every building in the U.S. with solar panels, ditching air travel, as well as internal combustion vehicles of any pedigree.

The vote was a brilliant bit of politicking in that it eliminated the GND as a campaign promise. No one wants to be associated, on record, with this progressive daydream.
