I understand. I wasnít commenting on the article per se, which I did read, but I was commenting on the perceptions I read in the thread.

I know fast food restaurants in the inner-city are always packed.
WTF? The thread is about a BK in Clovis Mexico. Population 37K. Not exactly inner city. What are you going on about?

Late to post and only read some of the replies, but besides the OP's point, we gave up on Burger King just recently anyway. It used to be OK, but last time we could not find a clean table. Walked up and down every isle and had to settle for the cleanest dirty one. Then I visited their Men's Room. Both prompted an E-mail message a day or two later. Never even heard back.

I agree with some of the mentions about Chick-Fil-A. They have now completely replaced BK with us.

Well it's nice to know people are keeping their standards high.













This thread is pure hilarious.

If it bothers you that much then don't eat at Burger King and hit up Chick-Fil-A

The employees were fired. At any place you go there seems to be one or two employees that canít separate their work from politics. Itís been happening all over for years now. Yes in most cases itís anti Trump and anti law enforcement so not difficult to figure out who they support.

This kind of thing happens all the time at Burger Kings across the country. Last year not too far from me in St. Francisville, Louisiana, employees bringing personal politics onto the job refused service to police officers and it made the national news .Same thing happened in Florida before that.

Also, BK's official FB page mocked President Trump for buying their products for a college team's visit to the White House. Clearly Burger King is making it clear that those of us who support the President are not welcome and that they are a liberal, Democrat, pro-Obama company not worthy of my money.

This is happening too frequently to be a coincidence. I simply can't imagine something like this happening at at Chick fil A.

Actually, BK poked fun at Trump’s tweet about ”hamberders”.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/money...et/2590994002/

It’s unfortunate people on all sides occasionally bring it to work.

To put this into perspective , BK operates 18,000 locations in all 50 states and in 56 countries. They serve 16 million people a day. And by golly, one offs happen. The BK employee was terminated.

Some people don’t like cops. This forum has several and they most definitely are not liberal.

Seriously, is/are CNN or Fox News generally more "honest"?

News flash: company does something and it’s political, or not political, and it doesn’t matter, cause we need clicks/ratings.

Really, maybe Trump needs smarter supporters.
