Didn't hear anything political about them lately.
I couldn't find anything either

That is the exact same thing I did, and they have good regular coffee, it is a good place to sit in the morning reading the paper. Why these actors and businesses get into politics is beyond me, as if they want to alienate half the country, it just isn't good business especially if I was an actor, nobody would ever know what I believed.

Same thing people been doing since before the election, just like Hilary calling us all deployable. I don't think most people realize why Trump won, it wasn't just for being against Hilary, it's the hate, the names everyone calls us, the race baiting, the war against the white man as if each one of us was harming somebody or enslaving somebody, bigot here, and misogynist there. McDonalds started doing the same thing in Tweets against Trump, and it just isn't necessary. We don't go out and riot, but what we do with our money is something else, and McDonalds just happen to come along to put themselves in a bad place.


It is just stupid is what it is.


People used to grimace when they walked in my office and saw a picture of Bush, and then I put up a picture of Obama and they grimace either way.


It doesn't have to be all this hate, but a company comes along and jumps into the mix, I hope they got plenty loyal supporters that take up the void we might leave behind.


Maybe not that many people know of what was said, but all my family and friends do, and they are all boycotting McDonalds because they took up sides.

McDonald's says the account was hacked, and considering the nature of the "tweet" that is by far the most likely answer. Why would ANY representative of the company make such an inane tweet?

Yeah, I shouldn't have even brought it up, but I don't buy that excuse, I bought it the first time, this isn't the first time, and if they were really sincere that it wasn't them, they have sure been lame about making apologies, I just don't buy it.

For 30 years we put the president's picture up, and it didn't matter what party they were elected by. Bush hate went out of control and people started hating you if you put the president's picture up, but those same customers saw us put Clinton up, and they took notice that it didn't matter to us, this is what people used to do. We stopped doing it in Obama's second term, now all it brings is hatred, I could just imagine the looks if we put Trump's picture up.

How about having pics of all the presidents, past and present, who are still alive? Do you think people would be more accepting of it that way?

Shaming you how, silly? Just thought if people see all of them up at once, they'd realize that you aren't playing favorites or trying to make a political statement, and it wouldn't ruffle any feathers, you big ol' teddy bear.
