Budweiser Throws Shade At Trump’s Immigration Policy With Its Super Bowl Commercial

The Super Bowl is coming up this weekend and you know what that means: kick-ass commercials.

I’m not much of a football fan, but I am a fan of alcohol and snacks, so I’ll watch anyway. It’s a nice bonus that the companies who can afford the exorbitant Super Bowl ad prices put out their best commercials to help keep me entertained.

I would argue that the last few years have been a little lackluster in the Super Bowl adver-tainment department, but Budweiser never disappoints. (Especially when they bring out the Clydesdales. Remember their 9/11 tribute? Gah, right in the feels.)

This year, Budweiser has created another commercial with a timely, powerful message.

I’ll be honest: I haven’t drunk Budweiser beer since I was in college. (Back in those days, anything that made its way from a keg into my red solo cup was fair game.) These days, I’m more of a wine girl.

Although I may not drink it, Budweiser and Bud Light are two of the best-selling beers in America. After all, what’s more American than that red, white and blue can? I’m betting there are a lot of all-American, blue collar fellas drinking their weight in Bud while watching this year’s Super Bowl. Perhaps those are the same Americans who voted for Donald Trump last November.

If so, Budweiser has an important message for its core demographic: Your all-American beer was brought to you by immigrants.

Thank you, Budweiser.

Thank you for reminding us that what makes America great is its diversity. Perhaps the next immigrant welcomed into our country will develop a cure for cancer or discover a new renewable energy source.

Or they just might brew your next favorite beer.
