The Asbestos Ban Has People Hilariously Trolling Conservatives

Today I learned that the Environmental Protection Agency *just* fully banned asbestos.

According to the Associated Press, the EPA ruled on Monday that chrysotile asbestos would be prohibited from use in things like brake linings and gaskets.

And now a tweet from the AP announcing the ban has gone viral:

Most people were like, "How hasn't it been banned already?"

But besides those people voicing their surprise at the delayed ban, the majority of the responses consist of people trolling conservatives.
