Leftists were angry and confused after WholeFoods Magazine gave Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) its “2019 Person of the Year” award.

Wednesday, McConnell tweeted that he was “honored” to be given the title for his continuous efforts to legalize industrial hemp.

The article goes on to state the following:

The magazine, which is in no way affiliated with the Whole Foods Market company, stated that “his first big move on hemp came in 2014, when he spearheaded a provision to legalize hemp pilot programs in the Farm Bill.”

“Odds are, you have an opinion about the Republican senator from Kentucky, and regardless of whether that opinion is positive or not, one thing is certain: Mitch McConnell has done a tremendous amount to influence the natural products industry in 2019, and what he has set in motion will continue to impact this industry for a long time to come,” the magazine wrote.

Angry leftist progressives began voicing their outrage on Twitter – making the mistake of slamming the wrong company in the process.

One Twitter user declared that he is now DONE with “Whole Foods,” before being corrected by someone else who pointed out that Whole Foods Magazine and Whole Foods are two completely separate companies.

Whole Foods Market then confirmed in multiple tweets, over and over and over, that they are not affiliated with WholeFoods Magazine.
