House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is fighting for the rights of green eggs, and he intends to try to keep the legend of Dr. Seuss alive.
How do we know this? Because McCarthy gave a heartfelt reading of the Seuss classic “Green Eggs and Ham” on Twitter.
“I still like Dr. Seuss, so I decided to read Green Eggs and Ham,” the California Republican wrote Friday night, urging viewers to “RT if you still like him too!”
A five-minute video of McCarthy presenting the beloved book accompanied the tweet, with McCarty not missing a beat on “its loopy rhyming tale of Sam-I-am and his unappetizing culinary creation,” as the New York Post put it.
McCarthy’s decision to read from “Green Eggs and Ham” came several days after news that Seuss’ bestselling children’s books will no longer be published, as more bored dimwits have alleged racism and forced drama where none was intended.
This, of course, only made the books even more popular.
“Sales of the six books — ‘If I Ran the Zoo,’ ‘And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street,’ ‘McElligot’s Pool,’ ‘On Beyond Zebra!,’ ‘Scrambled Eggs Super!’ and ‘The Cat’s Quizzer’ — soared after the announcement, and online auction site eBay canceled sales on vintage copies after they started selling for hundreds of dollars apiece,” the Post relayed.
Meanwhile, McCarthy’s video had 21,000 thousand retweets as of Sunday morning.
