Far-right Republicans are condemning President Joe Biden for the Chick-Fil-A sauce shortage.
Last week, the beloved food chain announced that it would be limiting the amount of sauce it can provide its customers due to sauce scarcity. Far-right Republicans, including Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert, and Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt, instantly began to point the finger at Biden, believing that he single-handedly caused the shortage.
Cruz took to Twitter and retweeted an article about the Chick-Fil-A shortage with the quote, “Joe Biden is destroying America.”

Boebert, a QAnon supporter, tweeted, “Is there no limit to how awful Biden’s America can get?” with a link to a separate report.

Stitt sent out an email where he wrote, “Chick-fil-A has a sauce shortage. And you want to know why? Because of Joe Biden’s radical liberal policies.” The email complained about the gas shortages, increased gas prices, and the cost of groceries since Biden was elected. The memo also asked for campaign donations.
Oklahoma Gov Kevin Stitt’s re-election campaign is now claiming that “Joe Biden’s radical liberal policies” are to blame for Chick-fil-A’s sauce shortage.

The Biden Administration has not acknowledged the outlandish claims.
