We know that the Democratic Party is filled with ironic hypocrites but the 2020 presidential candidates are taking the cake this weekend. More than 11,000 people flocked to a steak fry at the Iowa State Fair on Saturday to hear from the 17 candidates vying for the Democratic nomination, CBS News reported.
The event was put on by the Polk County Democrats and included more than 10,500 hamburgers and 1,000 vegan burgers. Rather ironic considering some of these candidates – like Sen. Kamala Harris and Andrew Yang – have made the case that meat consumption adds to our nations greenhouse emissions and climate change problem.
The candidates even showed off their grilling kills.

Maybe next year the Polk County Democrats will consider having a “Tofu Fry.”
