Dump Trump? Macy's Says No


(Bloomberg Businessweek) Angelo Carusone is a 30-year-old law school graduate, former debate champion, and director of online strategy for Media Matters. He also used to be @StopBeck on Twitter. Starting in 2009, Carusone led a campaign that pushed advertisers to drop their support of Glenn Beck, then a Fox News (NWS) TV host. “It wasn’t about political disagreements; it was about the willful lies,” Carusone told the Huffington Post in 2010. Advertisers did drop their support and Beck eventually left Fox to start BlazeTV.

Carusone, who now tweets as @GoAngelo, has a new target: @realDonaldTrump. Carusone started an online petition on Oct. 24, calling on Macy’s (M) to sever its relationship with Trump. The retailer sells Trump suits, shirts, ties, cufflinks, and more. It also just launched a fragrance called Success by Trump.

“Trump’s public conduct had been especially abominable” in the fall, says Carusone, as Trump continued to push his racially charged “birther” conspiracy and offered to donate $5 million to a charity of Barack Obama’s choice on condition the president turn his college records and passport application over to Trump.

Trump’s election night rants on Twitter sparked broad interest in Carusone’s petition, which has collected 494,276 signatures. ”Trump’s brand is consequence-free bullying. That doesn’t reflect well on Macy’s. People expect more from Macy’s,” says Carusone. “I’m more interested in what they have to say and less interested in what Donald Trump says.” ...............(more)

10. We shredded three separate accounts.

 

Macy's sucked in the following companies: Foley's and Robinson May's.

We owe them $$$ but they are in debt settlement.
