Trump supporters are getting sick and tired of the political battle that’s happening in places which used to be free of politics. It seems like every week, another company (many of them retailers) are bowing to pressure from the left to disassociate themselves with Trump.
Nordstrom’s decision to drop Ivanka Trump’s line was a classic example.
Many of the women who support these companies as customers voted for Trump and they’ve had it.
The Washington Post has the story:
A Trump voter’s message to retailers: ‘Keep your mouths shut about our president’
Mary Carson picks up her leopard-print tote bag and tugs on her leopard-print scarf.
“I’m just going to do a little bit of business,” the 77-year-old says as she walks into Neiman Marcus at the Tysons Galleria in Northern Virginia and asks for the manager. He appears in a pinstripe suit and shakes her hand.
“I’m very disappointed in what’s happened with the Trump line,” she tells him. “I hate to do this — I’m not a real activist — but I learned a long, long time ago that you cannot mix business and politics.”
The manager listens patiently.
Carson, who worked in marketing before she retired, pulls out her Neiman Marcus credit card and prepares to give it back. It was the obvious thing to do, she says, once the retailer stopped carrying Ivanka Trump’s jewelry line on its website a few weeks ago.
“If the company feels like they can hurt the daughter of a president by doing something like this, that’s mean,” said Carson, who voted for Trump. “I feel very strongly about that.”
This won’t end well for the companies involved.
Lots of people are losing their patience with this garbage.
