When Donald Trump tweeted in the midst of his inane election night Twitter rant/meltdown, “We can’t let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty,” it’s safe to assume he didn’t think people would feel the same way about him. It seems for every person still amused by Trump’s outrageous, offensive antics, there are others ready to put a stop to it. Nearly 500,000 of them, in fact.
Carusone, who was also behind a boycott against Glenn Beck, explained to Hollywood.com what finally made him take action against Trump. “For me the final straw was a recent letter that I found from Macy’s CEO Terry Lundgren to Donald Trump. In it, Mr. Lundgren concludes by saying ‘Don’t give up the Real Estate business yet but we are developing a meaningful fashion business with your brand!’ I’ve been a longtime customer of Macy’s and Bloomingdales. To me, Trump’s brand is consequence free bullying. It just didn’t seem to reflect the ‘magic of Macy’s.’ So, I acted.”
Clearly Carusone isn’t the only one who has had enough of Trump, who angered many when he extended his $5 million “offer” to President Obama in the wake of Sandy’s devastation. “He has a lack of respect for our political system. He offends me and all veterans who have fought for our country,” and, “I will not shop at Macy’s until and unless it dumps Trump -— I do not want to support a racist bigot,” are among some of the comments left on the SignOn.com petition. (The latter is perhaps the worst threat for Macy’s as the holiday shopping season looms near.)
