Former presidential candidate Andrew Yang threw cold-water on Joy Behar’s belief that Joe Biden should pick Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as his Vice President should he win the nomination; pointing out she’s still too young to become the Commander-in-Chief.
“You need someone who can attract Latino voters and young people that Bernie’s attracting,” said Yang on ‘The View.’
“So, AOC would be a good choice, except that she’s a Bernie person,” Behar chimed-in.
“Well, the Constitution has a minimum age for the President, and it’s conceivable that the Vice President is going to be the President,” Yang fired-back.

GREEN NEW MEAL: Andrew Yang Says US Should Tax ‘Cow Emissions’ to Stop Americans from Eating Beef
Democratic presidential hopeful Andrew Yang proposed a new tax to alter Americans’ eating habits this week; saying the government should include the cost of “cow emissions” in beef products sold across the USA.
“Cattle is very energy expensive. If you project forward, what we need to do to reduce emissions, we would want to modify America’s diets over time. What you’d want to do, is have those cattle producers to internalize the cost of emissions,” said Yang.
“What that would naturally do, and some people will hate this, is make these products more expensive. And that would be appropriate,” he added.

A European scientist speaking at a summit in Sweden last week suggested a controversial new trend to combat climate change: consuming human flesh as an alternative to animal products.
“Stockholm School of Economics professor and researcher Magnus Soderlund reportedly said he believes eating human meat, derived from dead bodies, might be able to help save the human race if only a world society were to ‘awaken the idea,’” reports the New York Post.
“At a summit for food of the future (the climate-ravaged future) called Gastro Summit, in Stockholm on Sept. 3 to 4, a professor held a PowerPoint presentation asserting that we must ‘awaken the idea’ of eating human flesh in the future, as a way of combating the effects of climate change,” adds the Epoch Times.

The scientist’s unusual dietary suggestion comes days after presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg likened humanity’s fight against climate change to the Second World War.
Mayor Pete was speaking during CNN’s televised town hall event when he called the fight against global warming the “hardest thing that we will have done in my lifetime.”
“We have to unify the country around this project… This is the hardest thing that we will have done in my lifetime, on par with winning World War 2, perhaps even more challenging than that,” said the Democrat.
This is the most offensive thing said at the CNN Climate town hall:
Buttigieg says fighting climate change is "more challenging than" winning World War II.

Failing candidate Beto O’Rourke made similar statements during the event, saying West Texas will become “uninhabitable” for human beings in the near future.
“My son Henry, who’s 8-years-old, he asked me, ‘Dad, if you win and you become President, we get to live in El Paso, right?’ I said no, we’d live in Washington, DC. But he knew that our community will become uninhabitable, will not sustain human life along this current trajectory unless something changes,” O’Rourke told the audience.
GLOVES OFF 2020: President Trump Says Joe Biden a ‘Mentally Weak Dummy’ Who Will be Easy to Beat
President Trump came-out swinging against former Vice President Joe Biden Tuesday; labeling the Democratic frontrunner a “mentally weak Dummy” who will be “easy to beat” during the 2020 race for the White House.
“When a man has to mention my name 76 times in a speech, he’s in trouble. Now, I have to tell you, he’s a different guy. He looks different than he used to, he acts different then he used to. He’s even slower than he used to be. So, I don’t know,” said Trump. “But when he mentions my name that many times I guess I should be complimented.”
“Joe Biden thought that China was not a competitor of ours. Joe Biden is a dummy,” added the President. “’I like running against people that are weak mentally.”
"Joe Biden is a dummy. Joe Biden thought that China wasn't a competitor," Trump said.

Biden was mocked on both sides of the political aisle over the weekend; with pundits pointing out his “lackluster” schedule and his ongoing “bromance” with Barack Obama.
“Joe Biden found himself mocked over the weekend for his corny effort to tie himself to former President Barack Obama, while also coming under criticism from other presidential candidates for skipping the biggest Iowa campaign event of the cycle so far,” reports Fox News.
Biden marked ‘Best Friends Day’ last Friday by posting a pair of “friendship bracelets” donning both their names.
“This is a joke, right?” asked former senior presidential advisor David Axelrod.
This is a joke, right?

“It turns out, the bracelet itself was: BuzzFeed produced a sympathetic and playful video in 2016 of Obama encouraging people to register to vote, showing the president jokingly making the bracelet,” adds Fox.
Nearly 20 Democratic candidates descended on Iowa over the weekend to speak at party fundraiser. Notably absent from the event? Joe Biden.
“When I saw the program for today, I thought the same thing you all did, which is this: Joe Biden must really not like to travel,” said entrepreneur Andrew Yang, a Democratic candidate.
Biden claims he skipped the event to attend the graduation of his granddaughter.
Jill & I were thrilled to be there today to watch our amazing granddaughter Maisy graduate. Maisy, you make us so proud & we can’t wait to see what you do next with your talent, smarts, dedication and kindness.
