For the rest of the summer, when you reach for an ice cold Budweiser, you’ll actually be reaching for an ice cold can of pure America. Thanks to a sudden uptick in patriotism, the beer manufacturer is temporarily re-naming its signature adult beverage to celebrate the red, white, and blue.

It makes sense. After all, Budweiser just might be the official beer of everything that’s great about summertime in the U. S. of A., like baseball, char-grilled encased meats, high-waisted jean shorts, blowing off unnecessary digits with illegal fireworks, and a Donald Trump campaign.

Not coincidentally, the Orange One, whose “Make America Great Again” slogan might have inspired the official ‘Murican resurgence, is taking credit for Budweiser’s decision. On Fox and Friends, Trump claimed that  “they’re so impressed with what our country will become that they decided to do this before the fact.”

He hasn’t even been elected yet and President Donald Trump is already having a real-world impact from the future. You might need a Budwe…err…an America or six to be able to digest that. Especially because you know, in your heart, that he’s probably right.

But even if Budweiser didn’t take Trump’s campaign slogan to heart when making their name change, that won’t matter much to Donald Trump. Just since beginning his campaign, he’s taken credit for lots of things that he’s only, possibly, maybe tangentially responsible for, if at all.

Among them:

Anyway, regardless of whether his claims have merit or not, on behalf of The Donald himself, Heat Street has only one thing to say: You’re welcome, America.
