No ‘made in China MAGA hats’ for Goodyear employees. Trump melts down—so Twitter burns up.

The Trump Goodyear boycott is just the latest example of the president using his power capriciously, this time against a 120-year-old American company.

A slide from a regional Goodyear training presentation was posted on social media, prompting a textbook case of backlash that ran right up to the backlasher in chief.

A closer look

The Police Tribune

This all started when someone put a photo of a Goodyear training slide on social media, complaining the policy was “discriminatory.” A regional office offered examples of what was acceptable and unacceptable attire. No political attire — check.

Expressions calling for social equity and racial justice are A-okay, but pushback against calls for equality are not acceptable.

Melissa Monaco, The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company furnished the following statement:

“Goodyear is committed to fostering an inclusive and respectful workplace where all of our associates can do their best in a spirit of teamwork. As part of this commitment, we do allow our associates to express their support on racial injustice and other equity issues but ask that they refrain from workplace expressions, verbal or otherwise, in support of political campaigning for any candidate or political party as well as other similar forms of advocacy that fall outside the scope of equity issues.”

‘Outside the scope of equity issues’

This has too much subtlety for a blunt tool like Donald Trump. Besides, he’s more interested in calls for inequality.

Goodyear may have set themselves up for a Trump boycott by putting a fine point on MAGA gear, but maybe MeidasTouch will do an ad about the Trump Goodyear attack.

Mr. President, is this the most important issue to ‘cross your desk’?

On the list of challenges faced by the United States, a tire company that doesn’t want employees promoting any politician is about number…wait, that’s not even on the list.

Yep, that’s right. MAGA hats are made in China. And Joe Biden hats? Right here in the USA. Look for the union label…

Ooh, snap!

Another day, another law broken

It’s hard to keep track of how many laws this president has broken. The Trump Goodyear boycott is one more example of a law Trump flouts.

But Trump is no stranger to this transgression.

I don’t think manipulating the stock market is legal either.

Where does Trump’s loyalty lie?

Apparently exhausted after his attack on the US Postal Service, Trump is now ready to bash a century-old American company whose blimps sail overhead to the delight of children and sports fans.

Where does Trump’s loyalty lie? With the money, silly.

Because his loyalties don’t even seem to lie with his own thoughts.

Thanks for the free advertising!

Maybe a Trump boycott is the best advertising Goodyear could hope for. The hashtag #buyGoodyear is trending on Twitter, and supporters are rolling out to support this American company.

Who’s gonna score the next Trump boycott?

The Trump boycott started before Goodyear’s corporate offices could respond. But Twitter users would like to point out some of the finer points of the tire company.

Sustainability, a positive work environment. White House staff might think that sounds pretty good about now. Oh, and by the way, the Trump boycott might have been a wee bit of an overreaction.

What else has Trump been tweeting about today?

Trump’s Goodyear tweet was part of a banner day for the president’s Twitter feed. He also took time to congratulate uber-bigoted GOP candidate Laura Loomer.

Ms. Loomer’s hate speech has gotten her banned from nearly every social media platform, but she seems to be single, so just to help her out…Loomer enjoys conspiracy theories, bashing Muslims using the hashtag #ProudIslamophobe, and celebrating the death of immigrants.

Laura Loomer tweet celebrating deaths of migrants.
