After Launch: Macy’s Jumps From the Sinking Trump Ship

You’ll have to get your generic ties under a different label now. "What I say?"As terrible as Hillary Clinton’s multiple presidential campaign rollouts were, Donald Trump might have secured the prize for worst 2016 announcement.

Heck, in this politically correct age, you say Mexicans are drug dealers and rapists with the caveat that you assume some are actually good people, and all of a sudden you’re more radioactive than plutonium.

Dropped by NBC and scolded by the Golf Channel and PGA (seriously even the Golf Channel has issued a condemnation), now Macy’s is jumping on the dump Trump bandwagon, calling for the full phase out of the Donald J. Trump line of button downs, ties and eyewear.A true power color: Pale pink.

Issuing a statement this week that those at Macy’s are, “Disappointed and distressed by recent remarks about immigrants from Mexico. We do not believe the disparaging characterizations portray an accurate picture of the many Mexicans, Mexican Americans and Latinos who have made so many valuable contributions to the success of our nation,” the retailer also made it clear that his daughter, Ivanka Trump’s line of hackney heels weren’t deemed racist and therefore won’t be affected by her father’s campaign promises.

Of course, the move by Macy’s to can his line is no skin off his nose, as Trump used the Macy’s announcement to dog his own use of Chinese factory labor for his $70 business casual duds, “I have never been happy about the fact that the ties and shirts are made in China, and should I start a new product line somewhere in the future, I would insist that they are made in America.”

With frames like this, perhaps he’ll argue he was framed.Oh yeah by the way, despite his love of Anna Wintour and past attempts to run under the Democrat banner, Trump has decided to try making it on the Republican ticket this time around.

PD is sure that Ted Cruz and Rand Paul are shaking in their penny loafers.
