Fox Host Thinks Lobster Is A Vegetable

By | November 29, 2022

In what must’ve been a VERY slow news day, Fox News did a segment on a decision by Whole Foods to stop selling Maine lobster. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss on The Young Turks. Watch TYT LIVE on weekdays 6-8 pm ET.

“Whole Foods has recently decided not to sell lobster from Maine after two sustainability organizations threatened to withdraw their endorsements of the U.S. lobster fishing industry.

Marine Stewardship Council and Seafood Watch are concerned about the impact the fishing gear is having on the rare North Atlantic right whales. There are only 340 of that species of whales left in the world. Whole Foods said that they are monitoring the situation and “committed to working with suppliers, fisheries, and environmental advocacy groups as it develops.”

The Fox network, however, is furious that they can no longer buy their lobster at Whole Foods.”

Don't care about those whales I just Want the lobster it's a free country Okay but and and by the way we all draw A line in different places a lot of People say don't eat it at all don't eat The cows because of how we treat the Cows those are all super Fair points we Got vegan host they make a very Compelling case about that I I'm an omnivore and and I love steak And I love Lobster I do Burgers uh you Name it bacon Etc so but if you said to Me for X period of time don't eat that So we can save the whales and say okay Yeah that makes sense I wouldn't be like Oh there's impinges upon my freedom First of all it doesn't you don't have To eat at Whole Foods or Blue Apron you Can go to get Lobster somewhere else Yeah nobody's taking your freedom away Right they're just expressing their Values through that and even if it's for Marketing purposes I don't mind it's Still their values they're still not Selling it to preserve the whales and Bringing attention to it so good on them Now Um that is a reasonable way of handling This news let's go to let's go back to Fox and hear an unreasonable take My understanding of this is that Obviously Maine has the biggest largest Lobster fishing industry in the country There and so you've got political

Leaders and those fishermen who are Essentially saying yes there is a risk But it's actually never happened so We're pulling loud we're telling them They can't do their jobs and we're Pulling these lobsters off the shelves At Whole Foods over risk send them to me Yeah I'll take the risk I love Lobster I love Maine Lobsters Ongoing conversation Is it is it an ongoing conversation I love Lobster so this is going to be an Ongoing conversation there's like really Nothing else to say about it yeah I'm Going why don't you go to a different Store and get your main lobster what's The What is nothing stopping you you just Invent this stuff just to divide us I Mean this is the point man very few People in their audience is like whining And dining on Lobster regular like Regularly like that's the thing that Drives me nuts about the story right it Shows you how fundamentally disconnected They are from their own audience we're Like plans we might not be able to buy Lobster at Whole Foods anymore how can You believe it Most of your audience is like struggling To survive they're elderly they're Probably living on Social Security Benefits which honestly aren't enough to

Keep them whole like let's just keep it Real they're not whining and dining on Lobster But the first thing you said is the most Correct and the funniest but like idiot Meathead which is appropriate in this Case on Fox News is like uh yeah I'm a Carnivore so I don't do that kind of Stuff Dude [Music] Does he really think Lobster is Vegetable Foreign [Laughter] TV I wish a lot I wish vegetables tasted as Good as Lobster but no they don't thanks For watching the young truth so really Appreciate it another way to show Support is through YouTube memberships You'll get to interact with us more There's live chat emojis badges you've Got emojis of me Anna John Jr so those Are super fun but you also get playback Of our exclusive member only shows and Specials right after they air so all That all you gotta do is click that join Button right underneath the video thank You
