It's not as if Donald Trump has only recently become an incendiary and obnoxious dirt bag, Macy's knew exactly what it was getting when it partnered with Trump on his line of clothing accessories. In fact since his most recent bankruptcy (ABC News reports that Trumps business havegone through Chapter 11 bankruptcy four times- in 1991, 1992, 2004 and most recently in 2009) trump has made a career almost exclusively out of being an obnoxious windbag. The more Trump says, the higher his profile gets and the more "exposure" his "brand" gets. Trump says that all publicity is good, and apparently Macy's must believe that. At the time of this writing more than 600,000 people have signed a petition asking Macy's to end their partnership with 'The Donald' based on his ill-advised unintelligible and inflammatory anti-Obama comments. Bloomberg reports, The petition was start by Angelo Carusone, who also recently started a "StopBeck" campaign that he said resulted in anchor Glenn Beck leaving Fox News.
Macy's CEO Terry Lundgren has come to the defense of Mr Trump, “Please understand and appreciate that Macy's marketing and merchandising offerings are not representative of any political position,” Lundgren wrote to Carusone. “Ours is a free society compromised [sic] of a wide range of viewpoints.”
I'm sorry Mr. Lundgren, your CEO spin isn't going to work this time. This isn't an issue about "two different view points" This is the american people warning you, that if you choose to conduct your business with social bullying terrorist we will do our business elsewhere. Last week @RealDonaldTrump tweeted the Presidential election was "a total sham and a travesty" and a "great and disgusting injustice." He continuied on with much, much worse but has since deleted many of his posts. The disrespect to America's highest office go well beyond "differing view points" So Mr. Lundgren we all know you and Donald have enough money to buy almost anything, but we also know there is one thing you cannot buy, and its the one thing you need most.
