I would suggest that people that supported Donald Trump. Probably have a bunch more money. Than me Occupy Wall Street crowd at the other end of the political spectrum. Meego spraying head of global corporate practice at Weber share and wake. Eight PR firm that handles crisis management said consumers are holding branch accountable.

Urged consumers to boycott brands while on the campaign trail including Macy's and Oreo Cookies more recently he operated Nordstrom. For dropping the product line of daughter Yvonne got.

And if it's 5050 alike get hate it. Or even 6048. Why do you wanna go there why not just tout the benefits of whatever we did your shelling. It's more important than ever for companies to understand who they are in the value though they contribute to society. To their employees of their communities and to their consumers.

Coca-Cola was subject to a subsequent boycott hash tag the day after the super ball. One of coach advertisements during the game was a three year old dad. Featuring people singing America the beautiful in their various native languages. You know if there was a time when immigrants coming to America. Parents. Of small children. Insisted no matter what language was spoken in the house. They spoke English the rest of the time so they could assimilate. Into the culture. And have a greater two chance of success and opportunity in deal land of opportunity. I made a public statement quote I made a public statement because of our resolute belief and commitment. As one of the largest employers in the world is a system here we go with a global stuffy. 770000. Associates around the world to more than 200. 200 countries how resolute we are in our commitment to diversity our belief and fairness and inclusion.

Join the president strategic and policy forum she has remained publicly silent. On his various executive order. Even of boycotts don't affect sales eight tarnished reputation. Can hurt a brand or hinder a company's ability to hire and retain. Talent and employ its. That's proved to be the case for under armor they Baltimore based athletic brand was downgraded.

Bob in not reaction to Anthony Snowe RD hyperventilating. Call about the Russians and trump. And seal laps up liberal talking points like a thirsty buff ruined a couple of inquiries for the school. Where was Anthony when Hillary gave Russia a reset button. And Obama in talking with their president was pointing out that after the election he was going to be flexible. And Obama pulled the missile shield for Eastern Europe if they're so dangerous and evil. And of course remember Obama mocked Romney about his position. That Russia was our number one GO polar political adversary while wages it. Is Romney wrong or is Barack Obama wrong you can't have it both ways Anthony. President Obama and secretary of state Hillary. This is about emailing on an unsecured server President Obama and the secretary of state Hillary Clinton and knowing the evil of Putin's. Was exposing. Secured classified information to our rush giants. LL and to name. Why was Obama so grossly negligent. When the Russians hovering nearby. If trump is guilty of treason Obama and Hillary are guilty of high treason what the trials begin. And now this one also an email Bob I used to be amid global ultra fanned. After the bush BS immigration commercial but found her body bush and his offspring. Would be horrified about as all he senior was a huge Reagan supporter. I bought cold Coors Light. Official sponsor of the New England Patriots for the super wal instead to make global draw. Two can play this foolish. Boycott game why do you do you suppose has more spin on the boycott game trump sixty million taxpaying voters or move that lefties who need table scraps from Soros and Obama again but. Isn't an obvious by now the deal lame stream media is simply talking to themselves and Hillary supporters who watches are listened still. Not the sixty million trump supporters who couldn't care less about their propaganda. And fake news. 347. Thirteen before four. Whole being is from she. Okay okay. Harry remembered. How he unsure. Which you know when I was in Asia is that if you're wondering when I was a youngster by the way. It was not right after electricity and tennis. Just before radio. As a matter of I jag I can still remember standing over a Marconi shoulder sent to moderate up way up. I got this breaking news story. At a share. Anybody Mac regarding boycotts are supporting businesses I just realized that I use six businesses and all advertise on WORD. Carolina heating and air then Franklin plumbing Gosling electrical all exterior hired killers and terrorists. Every one of them. Excellent. Could you know thank you. I'm Bob today president trump stated these leaks are illegal so how long before some of these political Intel folks trial logging and and now they're codes are no longer valid. And they are arrested. The president. As we previewed yesterday with Mike Rubin. The Middle East expert from American Enterprise Institute president meeting today with Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House and the president said that she lead to crank the volume up pretty highness money Tennis Channel and the president. Defending. I his former national security advisor. Michael Flynn general Flynn is a wonderful man I think he's been treated. Very very unfairly by the media. As I call it the fake medium many concerns. And I think it's really a sad thing that he was treated so badly. The president also. Made Desormeaux marks an about all these leaks. That have been coming out of Atlanta this is nothing new I'm and we hearkened back to the day when not President Nixon. Form the plumbers unit to try and determine where all the leaks are coming from so it's it's hardly new but it's been. Ramp up these days here's president trump talking about on the lakers. Papers are being leaked things are being leaked. Criminal action criminal act. And it's been going on for a long time before me. But now it's really going on. And people are trying to cover up for a terrible loss. That the Democrats had a under. Hillary Clinton. And now Soros and the rest of the global us our. On steroids a good texture asked earlier one of the world's Obama forming a shadow government. And there's a simple answer to that one minute and it is not to make trouble. For his successor or in the White House and. To try and remain relevant and you know he's gonna get coverage from the media. Because they L lap up everything that he has to say. Just a heads up to the coerce a white editor Bob both Anheuser-Busch and MillerCoors. Our own. By idea that set in Bell's corporate really. Another course charisma still still owned by him at death family income are just not. I'm Bob if you were ever around me Budweiser horses declined to nails they live better. Then now we deal I stood security forum several years ago they are pampered. Peta should also use Imus as poster children EL.

The post report cited nine. Anonymous current and former officials who were in senior positions at multiple agencies. That would be Langley and NSA amongst others. And who had access to reports from US intelligence and law enforcement agencies. That routinely monitor the communications of Russian diplomats there's another aspect of this as well.
