Donald Trump thinks we should all boycott Starbucks following its decision to remove ‘Merry Christmas’ from its holiday cups. What a productive use of his time and fame! Check out The Donald’s egregious remarks.
Donald Trump wants to be the next president, so he’s rallying behind the most important issue facing the nation: Starbucks removing Christmas decorations from its red holiday cups. The 69-year-old addressed the hot-button topic at a rally in Illinois on Nov. 9, suggesting a call to arms that “we should boycott Starbucks.”
“Did you read about Starbucks?” Trump asked a packed crowd of thousands, all of whom had gathered in Springfield, Illinois to hear him speak at a pre-debate rally. “Maybe we should boycott Starbucks,” he suggested.
Trump is so concerned about this supposed war on Christmas, that he has forgotten one quintessential (and extremely ironic) fact: there is a Starbucks literally inside the Trump Tower in Manhattan, a building which– you guessed it!– Trump owns. So, you’re saying that we should boycott an entity inside something you use to make money, Donald? Hm, maybe you’re not the great businessman that you think you are, sir.
Of course, Trump ended his remarks on the issue in typical Trumpian fashion, admitting to the crowd, “Seriously, I don’t care.”
In case you missed it, Starbucks announced on Nov. 8 that it would forego explicit Christmas decorations on its annual holiday edition cups this year. Instead, the coffee giant would opt for a non-religious red cup. Many Christians have declared the act as contributing to the “war on Christmas,” and are boycotting Starbs to express their disdain. Okay, good luck with that, everyone.
Do you agree with Trump and others that Starbucks should be boycotted because of the Christmas cup controversy?
