And in the wake of the president’s boastings, several media outlets reported how government decisions could affect shoppers. While there are tangible harms to the decision, for the sake of virality, some organizations wrote about how the border forbid might effect a hike in avocado rates. From the Washington Post :

Of all the imports and exportations that could be disrupted under these a scenario — from vehicle parts to beef to cause — few have generated more hand-wringing than the pear-shaped fruit. Industry chairmen say America’s avocado furnish is so is dependant on Mexico that we’d running around in weeks, heightening the specter of a future with subpar toast, smoothies, salads — and no guacamole.

Americans deplete more fresh avocados( 7.5 pounds) per capita per year than they do peaches, pears, plums, snips and nectarines combined.

In a normal, pre-everything-is-partisan world, the elimination of a wildly popular foodstuff in the American supply change would be cause for concern. But avocados have also become a signifier for a type of bourgeoisie, urban-dwelling liberal who buys them at a white-washed establishment with succulents in window boxes while wearing an” I’m still with her” shirt.

And thusly, conservatives had to post about their indifference for avocados.
