McDonalds has been in a sales slump, but that didn’t stop corporate headquarters from taking to the official MacDonaldsCorp twitter account and blasting President Trump with the following inexcusable tweet, “@realDonaldTrump You are actually a disgusting excuse of a President and we would love to have @BarackObama back, also you have tiny hands.”
This tweet, which has now been deleted by MacDonalds, is significant for several reasons. 1) The mechanics of the tweet are rather juvenile considering the letterhead comes from a mega corporation. Did the seven year old child of a CEO write this tweet? 2) But then maybe the elementary simplicity of the tweet just reflects the inadequate education of the millennials who are graduated from Ivy League schools. 3) Did the bozo who wrote this tweet not connect the future sales of this fading fast-food chain with the general populace? Are they so removed from reality that they have not noticed that companies which have made political statements adversely negative to President Trump or his family have paid the price with their profit margins?
The arrogance of the Washington Establishment and Hollywood is not confined to D.C. and California. Besides the fake news media, Corporate America has gotten too big for its conglomerate britches, and needs an attitude adjustment. Big Business needs to leave their politically correct hubris in their boardrooms and please We the People. And if they don’t, they will be in the Shareholders’ doghouse.
Is that concept really too difficult for these entrepreneurial midgets? Were they not paying attention when Target refused to listen to We the People when we said we didn’t want men in restrooms with little girls? Did they not notice what happened when Neiman Marcus decided to punish the Trump family by dropping Ivanka Trump products, only to have to turn around and begin carrying them again as the result of Ivanka’s products selling off of the charts among their competitors?
And what about Starbucks? After promising to give 10,000 migrants jobs at their American stores instead of helping the needy veterans, Starbucks earned a big boycott. Their profits dropped big league.
McDonalds either doesn’t care or is so deep in the quagmire of politically correct corporate gobbledygook that they don’t see it for the muck in their eyes and their brains.
McDonalds has been the image of middle America for so long that the executives of this fast food behemoth have lost all abilities to foresee an American future without Chicken McNuggets, the Egg McMuffin, and the infamous Big Mac.
But a future without Ronald could well be on the table for the hamburger chain which is the godfather to the fast food blitzkrieg. Taking their clientele for granted is a foolish mistake.
“Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame see bun” used to have an exclusive appeal to hungry Americans. The Big Mac Attack was an all-American sensation. But if McDonalds is so cocky that they think they can play politics and push their political hogwash without consequence, they will begin a well-deserved downward spiral.
