Dump Trump Billboard: Circling Macy's Headquarters!

by at . Comments

The online campaign urging Macy’s to Dump Trump is hitting the streets - billboard style.

On Saturday, a mobile billboard attached to a truck began circling Macy’s headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio, as well as a nearby department store.

In New York, another mobile billboard began circling the company’s flagship store in Herald Square. The goal? Get Macy's to cut ties with Donald Trump.

Dump Trump, a petition from the liberal group MoveOn (dot) org, has gained nearly 680,000 signatures since launching last month in a bid to get him fired.

The petition charges Trump with making “sexist” and “racially charged” comments, which organizers say are against Macy’s social responsibility policy.

Case in point: Trump’s election night Twitter tirade, in which he called America a sham democracy after President Obama's win and urged a march on D.C.

Earlier case in point: Trump's nonsense about Obama's birth certificate.

“There is a gap between what Macy’s brand is and what Donald Trump’s brand is,” protest organizer Angelo Carusone tells The Hollywood Reporter.

The billboards feature photos of a classic Santa Claus next to an angry-looking Trump, as well as the words “Bring back the classic Macy’s. Dump Trump.”

The campaign is asking the retailer to stop carrying Trump’s line of clothing and fragrances and to stop using the billionaire real estate mogul in ads.

“Macy’s says they are a cut above the rest. They appeal to everyone’s nostalgia. They inject themselves into our culture and our holidays,” says Carusone.

“We don’t think [Trump] represents the values they espouse.”

Carusone hopes the billboards will make Macy's and the public see Trump as a liability, not an asset, especially if accompanied by protests at Macy's events.

If it's working, the company has yet to admit as much yet.

Macy’s has stood by Trump, saying through a spokesman, “Macy’s marketing and merchandise offerings are not representative of any political position.”

NBC has also indicated it will stick with Trump as it prepares to launch another season of Celebrity Apprentice, which is apparently still on the air, in March.

I don't really care about his political leanings. What I care about is his sexist remarks, such as when he essentially demanded every woman get AIDS tested because, you know, only WOMEN spread the disease, right? He isn't a beacon of fiscal responsibility, either. Often times, investing in a Trump real estate venture is a scam. Macy's should want to protect someone who is a racist/homophobic/sexist. While they claim that his views aren't representative of their views, they don't seem to come across as neutral by keeping Trump on.

Donald is not near the racist Obama is. People envy trump because of his money. Most minorities and chocolate filled whites are racist to the point where they talk about whites. It's in their nature. They will never amount to anything desirable. Trash migrates towards trash and the successful ALWAYS wants no part of trash.

'chocolate filled whites'....interesting, but a sign of just how racist you are...as far as envy for trump, i highly doubt that....why would anyone envy a bag of hot air who only gets to marry beautiful women because of his money..if he didn't have money not a single women would even look at him twice...so he uses his money to buy his wife.

Dump the current clueless occupant of the White House. Delusional people signing this petition are too stupid to realize they are being conned by the Deceptocrats and the driveby media. Our country is being bankrupted and torn apart by class warfare, war on religion, government takeover of the economy, dangerous and inept foreign policy and flouting of the constitution. The liar-in-chief and mocker-in-chief is fast becoming the first American dictator. The low-information voters are voting themselves handouts out of greed and selfishness. We are being turned into a has-been and nobody seems to care, certainly not the media. The brain washing starts in the public schools. It's time to wake up people.

Let me take a longshot guess. You watch the Fox Infotainment channel don't you?

Trump makes good sense and wish he was our President v. Who we currently have at the helm. I don't believe he would have Americans wondering abut the Financial Cliff and perhaps proud to actually have a plan for a balanced budget.
