Nearly 400,000 People Call On Macy’s To Dump Donald Trump

Source: Think Progress

A grassroots campaign for Macy’s to end their association with Donald Trump has caught fire. Nearly 400,000 people have added their name to a petition on Signon.org for Macy’s, which exclusively sells Trump’s clothing line and fragrance, to dump the controversial businessman.

Trump gained prominence during the 2012 election for relentlessly promoting the discredited conspiracy theory that Obama was not born in the United States. He vocally maintains that Obama’s birth certificate is a forgery.
On Tuesday, Trump tweeted that the election results were “a travesty, a total sham, a disgusting injustice” and “urged Americans to march on Washington.” He claims global warming is “a concept created by and for the Chinese to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.” Trump also promotes dangerous conspiracy theories about vaccines.

Macy’s touts themselves as a “socially responsible” company. Nevertheless, they have continued to embrace their relationship with Trump and will prominently feature him in its holiday Television ads.

3. Had the same thought ...

Seeing the Donald featured so prominently in Macy's new holiday ad campaign (with the original Miracle on 34th Street) ... how can Macy's stand to be affiliated with him. I wouldn't buy any of his "brand".

21. He's disgusted everyone. He's only disgraced himself.

Somebody should fire a tranquilizer dart at The Donald, then tag him, so his migration patterns can be monitored.

2. Good point. They've also used him in some TV ads I've seen.

If the shoe were on the other foot, the right would be all over a boycott like white on rice.

7. Thanks, I signed it.

Not that I think it will hurt the billionaire birther's wallet, I just don't want to see other organizations validating his BS.

Also added this comment:

"The Donald embarasses you. Plus, it wouldn't surprise me if he was stealing the Santa Mail."

5. I bought a couple of his shirts when they were on sale

a few years back. 2 for $35. They were very nice looking, but the sizing was terrible. They were supposed to be medium but they were huge. I gave one away and never wear the other one.

Oh, and I signed the petition.

8. Does this mean

they won't be able to use the Donald Trump balloon in the Thanksgiving Parade. They really like that one because it provides its own hot air. Saves them a ton of money.

9. Just signed and commented

Does Macy's really want to be associated with Trump's moronic image?

10. Me and my family take these boycotts seriously and

do not shop or do business with companies who behave in a socially irresponsible way. Having TRUMPdusky as a holiday certainly meets that standard.

13. Macys Is Definitely Run By Republicans

You have to know Macy has republican business leaders considering that they both endorse donald trumps products and looking around the store, you randomly find books by Bill Oreilly.

15. Tis the season!! Xmas shopping season might have them thinking a little more than usual

Black Friday coming........either this protest will scare them some or they'll have to have some really awesome sales to make up the difference from the Sasquatch backlash.

16. I signed the petition yesterday from a link in my inbox.. from Moveon

This was my comment..

Donald Trump is a nasty racist as evidenced by his hounding President Obama on the whereabouts of his birth certificate. Knowing full well the dog whistles he was sending out to fellow bigots.
