2. Haven't had one of his pies since he helped sponsor the "swift boat" lies against

John Kerry in '04. Will never go back.

3. I'm lucky enough to live in a place

 

where I don't have to settle for garbage food like Papa John's.

Boycotting trash food has never been a problem.

13. Good on you!

Chemicals/hormones with food is not food. Organics cost more, but that's how much FOOD costs! If everyone who feels they could afford to stop buying food processed with crap would stop buying it, that trash would be off the market.

4. Now maybe he'll resign to the fact that his pizza is HORRIBLE!

I can't stand that man. I'm so glad this happened.
Trump has brought all these nuts out from under their rocks.
I hope we can make it through this era, and watch these slimy, grotesque creatures crawl back under.

9. I gave up eating pizza

in 1982 so I don't believe I've ever eaten one of his, thankfully.
He'll be rich and so will his children forever so don't laugh too loud.
He may come up with another method to torture us, like running for office.

14. He really was making a MAGA argument

 

He was saying, in summary, that Colonel Sanders used to get to use the N-word all the time and never had to take this sensitivity training like he was being forced to do, harrumph. Y'know, back when America was "great." The only thing he left out was an appeal to "free speech." His statements were right in the sweet spot of MAGA shitheadery, and will certainly be viewed as favorable by the MAGA crowd.

17. Yup.

He will be considered a "martyr" for the "cause" and it's all the "librruuuuulllls" fault. Next thing we know, he'll be a contributor to Faux Snooze, now able to more openly expressing his bullshit.

15. The BS-er "stepped down" last year, too...

...after negative response to his criticism of NFL players taking a knee.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/business/wp/2017/12/21/papa-johns-founder-replaced-as-ceo-weeks-after-blaming-the-nfl-for-sagging-pizza-sales/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.c162da99c3e7

Smart money say next year he'll again be teleconferencing in on corporate meetings and "stepping down" after saying something bigoted.
