Just Sayin’: Boycotts and Bullies

LL Bean.LL Bean doesn’t yet manufacture jackboots. Three days till Inauguration Day and there’s already enough eye-rolling to keep us nauseous for the next eight four years.

Pop some Kinedryl and place one foot on the floor, because here we go.

Obviously a good duck boot is fairly different from a jackboot, but the recent revelation that LL Bean’s Heiress Linda Bean personally donated $30,000 to the pro-Trump PAC Making Maine Great Again has the group #GrabYourWallet preaching the need for a boycott---a move Linda Bean calls, “A case of bullying.”

Not going into the basic definition of boycotting being voting with your dollars or going too deep on the fact that it was Bean herself that made the donation and not the company, we’ll move on and look at Donald Trump’s response.

He responded on Twitter--- of course.

Which then led to the Office of Government Ethics reiterating online that members of the Executive Branch are prohibited from, “Endorsing any product, service or company.”Not the same case when the Weatherproof decided to use an image of President Obama in China to hawk their coats.

There go Trump Steaks and Trump Wine and---

Just sayin’.

    Isn't LL Bean the uniform of liberal elites?

  • I personally don’t like Mr. Donald. He is not the nice president I think. As just don’t know he would change how many rules and bring his own rules and regulations. But people will support LL. Bean as he is very honest and kind hearted man. I think everyone here would agree with me.
