Far-right Republicans blame Biden for Chick-Fil-A sauce shortage: 'It's just so embarrassing'
Last week, Chick-Fil-A announced that because of supply chain difficulties, it was limiting the amount of sauce it was giving to customers. And some far-right Republicans, insanely, are blaming President Joe Biden for the sauce shortage the fast food chain is experiencing.
The wingnuts pointing the finger at Biden include Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado and Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt. Cruz, who is never shy about making ludicrous statements, tweeted:
Joe Biden is destroying America.https://www.breitbart.com/economy/2021/05/12/chick-fil-a-limits-sauces-order-due-shortage/\u00a0\u2026— Ted Cruz (@Ted Cruz) 1620848390
On Twitter, Boebert — a supporter of the QAnon conspiracy cult — posted:
Is there no limit to how awful Biden\u2019s America can get?https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1392500339052617728\u00a0\u2026— Lauren Boebert (@Lauren Boebert) 1620837349
Far-right wingnuts have a long history of coming up with ridiculous lines of attack against Democratic presidents. The late radio host Rush Limbaugh, in 2009, blamed President Barack Obama for the death of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, claiming that Jackson had given up on life thanks to Obama's presidency.
Stitt is using the claim that Biden caused Chick-Fil-A's sauce shortage as a cynical fundraising opportunity. A fundraising e-mail from the Oklahoma governor read, "Chick-fil-A has a sauce shortage. And you want to know why? Because of Joe Biden's radical liberal policies."
The e-mail went on to say, "Gas stations are having mass shortages, gas prices are soaring, the cost of groceries is through the roof, and now Chick-fil-a (sic) has a sauce shortage. And who is paying the price? Everyday Americans."

I'm just imagining Lauren Boebert running down to the nearest Chic-Fil-A whilst screaming to grab as many Chic-Fil-A sauce packets as she can— Sully (@Sully) 1620852186
