The morning of this past Wednesday (Jan 6) I happened across a Twitter thread about a small pizza chain that was conducting a social media campaign in support of conservative positions in the Presidential election. I added this comment:
"Any brand that goes public with political positions is run by idiots."
A few hours later I dropped everything to watch the invasion of the U.S. Capital building.
Forty-eight hours later I'm looking at a memo from the CEO of McDonald's attacking the President of the United States.
Taking a position against criminal activity in Federal buildings? That's commendable.
Attacking the President in the name of one of the world's most famous brands? Incredibility stupid.
Here's what he said, "Shortly after these attacks, I endorsed a statement from a group of fellow business leaders from top U.S. companies, the Business Roundtable, condemning President Trump and the other elected officials who incited this insurrection."
This just isn't true. The Business Round Table didn't pay the President any compliments but they merely called for an end to the chaos.
"Condemnation" is his word and was not used by the Business Roundtable.
Washington - Business Roundtable today issued the following statement:
“The chaos unfolding in the nation’s capital is the result of unlawful efforts to overturn the legitimate results of a democratic election. The country deserves better. Business Roundtable calls on the President and all relevant officials to put an end to the chaos and to facilitate the peaceful transition of power."

Two of the mistakes that liberals make: 1)They react emotionally and make knee jerk decisions, 2)They believe that everyone else in the world agrees with their liberal positions.
How's it feel to have the CEO looking down his nose at a huge chunk of your customer base?
