Organizing Boycotts for advertisers of Trump media coverage

Trump needs to be stopped and we CAN be effective. Does anyone know of organized efforts for systematically boycotting sponsors of media (any of the outlets who are giving airtime to DonnyDumpster)? This has been extremely effective in the past (think about what happened with Rush).

The "news" outlets who are giving him the free airtime and thus contributing to this downward spiral are doing so because of the enormous amounts of advertising revenue that they are receiving. We can send a message by naming the new outlets and the advertisers who are taking advantage of the destruction of not only the political process, but our democracy.

We can call them out and bombard the sponsors with letters letting them know that we are boycotting their products; use social media to spread the word, and possibly make a difference.

I will do a search and see what I can find, however I take care of my very ill mother so my research time is limited to her sleep time - if anyone has any information, please post...

Thank you and Shine On!

Bob McDonald, former P&G chief, to be Obama’s nominee to lead Veterans Affairs

President Obama on Monday will nominate Bob McDonald, a West Point graduate who served as the chief executive of Procter & Gamble, to take over as head of the troubled Department of Veterans Affairs, according to White House officials.

The un­or­tho­dox pick of a retired corporate executive whose former company produces iconic household products such as Tide detergent and Charmin toilet paper — rather than a former military general — underscores the serious management problems facing the agency charged with serving more than 8 million veterans a year. On Friday, White House deputy chief of staff Rob Nabors submitted a report to the president finding “significant and chronic system failures” and a “corrosive culture” at the Veterans Health Administration, which has come under fire for skewed record-keeping in an effort to cover up the long waits it has imposed on former soldiers seeking medical care.

As a VA employee, I'm not sure how I feel about this. I guess we will see shortly.
