After years of telling people they're "fired", is Donald Trump finally having the tables turned on him?
If Angelo Carusone, gets his way, yes!
The director of Media Matters started a petition urging Macy's to dump Trump because they're embracing the comb over-ed billionaire's brand, which he believes is built on "consequence-free bullying."
The online petition, which has received over 600,000 signatures, also details his "especially unpleasant, nasty, and despicable behavior", noting The Donald has:
Long engaged in sexist behavior. Trump has a long record of personally attacking women he disagrees by calling them "unattractive," ugly or fat. He once sent a target a personal note telling her that she has the "face of a dog." Not even his own daughter is immune to Trump's sexism. While referring to his daughter, Trump observed: "She does have a very nice figure…if [she] weren't my daughter, perhaps I'd be dating her."
Hypocritically complained about jobs being shipped overseas to China, despite the fact that almost his entire clothing line sold at Macy's is made in China and other Asian nations.
Use his public platform to deny the reality of climate change. Following Hurricane Sandy, Trump publicly declared: "The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive."
Perpetuated the racially charged birther conspiracy, repeatedly arguing that President Obama has been lying and was not born in the United States.
Unfortunately for Carusone, Macy's isn't budging.
The retailer responded to the petition, saying:
"Macy’s marketing and merchandise offerings are not representative of any political position. Many of the individuals associated with products sold at Macy's – or at any retailer, for that matter – express personal opinions that are not related to the merchandise we sell or to the philosophies of our company. In our merchandise assortment, we strive to meet our customers' expectations for unique and interesting products across a broad array of styles, categories and brands. This allows our customers to choose what they prefer. A longtime focus of Macy's holiday advertising has been to celebrate the season's spirit of generosity and goodwill through our ongoing 'Believe' campaign, and that is the sole message of our holiday television commercials."
But that isn't stopping Carusone! He still plans to hand-deliver the final petition to the retailer by Thanksgiving and if they don't take action he will encourage Macy's credit card holders to cut them up.
What do U think of all this???
