Biotech entrepreneur and former Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy has come under fire from the conservative Christian satire website Babylon Bee for a joke about a 7-Eleven regarding his purported job in Trump’s cabinet.
After finishing poorly in the Iowa caucuses, Ramaswamy withdrew from the contest and recently endorsed the front-runner and sitting president, Donald Trump. Some supporters chanted “VP, VP” during a rally in New Hampshire, sparking speculation that Ramaswamy will be Trump’s running mate.
The White House 7-Eleven store is a “very important cabinet position” that Trump allegedly gave Ramaswamy, according to an article by The Babylon Bee. According to the meme, Trump declared, “There isn’t even a 7-Eleven in the White House under Biden.”
Not desirable! “Convenience is returning to the West Wing!” According to the article, Trump would collaborate closely with Ramaswamy daily and would “stop by for one of those delicious warmed-up cheeseburgers under the hot light thingies” along with a Diet Coke.
Additionally, it stated that Ramaswamy had already begun his training by watching movies on “offering fast service ringing up Big Gulps” and “how to fix the Slurpee machine.”
Though not everyone thought the Babylon Bee post was hilarious, it went viral. The Babylon Bee was accused of “racism” by certain observers, especially conservatives since it linked 7-Eleven stores to Indian immigrants.
Nonetheless, Ramaswamy didn’t appear to take offense at the piece. Retweeting a tweet from conservative pundit Matt Walsh, he said Ramaswamy was not offended by the joke and defended the Babylon Bee.
