Senator Cory Booker Defends Veganism

Vegan senator takes to Twitter after The New York Times infers that Americans will elect a black man but never a vegan.

In recent Op-Ed published in The New York Times, writer Sarah Vowell advised vegan New Jersey Senator Cory Booker to “start figuring out how to at least mime eating bratwurst” if he ever wanted to run for president. “It will be awhile before a vegan escapes the Iowa caucuses intact,” Vowell wrote. Booker took to Twitter and posted, “Funny she thinks it’s easier for [Americans] to elect a black man president than a vegan.” Booker’s fans instantly responded with positive comments, including the statement, “Please don’t stop being vegan; it’s better than being president.”Prior to Tim Kaine’s nomination as Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Booker was rumored to be Clinton’s “VP,” to which the senator responded, “I am already a vegan person.”
