Wisely, McDonald’s says it is pausing its political donations

Quiet before the storm. Understanding the pause is in retaliation to the purported belief that Trump caused the DC riot. Not any new found belief that MCD shoumd have politic neutrality.

They will donate to BIDEN be inauguration.

PAUSE! They should just stop. Having the arches out there supporting general elections is not a good idea.

However, there are occasions where being involved is necessary and appropriate. Issues years ago relating to labeling is an example. In cases where there is proposed legislation that targets MCD or the industry with inaccurate statements then elected officials should understand that we are "Political" very political in that we will generously help those who help us. We will bring franchisee's, suppliers, ad agencies, the company and others to explain our position. Our goal would be fairness to all concerned. The old adage of "walk softly but carry a huge stick" get involved where it is good judgement to do so.

The CEO standing up posing for a photograph and making some misguided attempt to sound "high minded" is counterproductive.
