Angelo Carusone wants Donald Trump to get fired from Macy’s. And he has 390,955 people who agree with him.
Carusone, who is director of online strategy for nonprofit progressive research and information center Media Matters for America, has started a petition to urge the department store to break its ties with Trump. The Donald developed his line of clothes and fragrances through Macy’s.
Trump’s recent antics prompted Carusone to take such a step. As he outlines in the petition, Trump has:
-Long engaged in sexist behavior. Trump has a long record of personally attacking women he disagrees by calling them “unattractive,” ugly or fat. He once sent a targeted a personal note telling her that she has the “face of a dog.” Not even his own daughter is immune to Trump’s sexism. While referring to his daughter, Trump observed: “She does have a very nice figure…if [she] weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.
-Hypocritically complained about jobs being shipped overseas to China, despite the fact that almost his entire clothing line sold at Macy’s is made in China and other Asian nations.Perpetuated the racially-charged birther conspiracy, repeatedly arguing that President Obama has been lying and was not born in the United States.
There is more, but according to Carusone, Trump’s behavior does not fall in line with Macy’s social responsibility policy, which reads: “There is no shortage of talk about the obligation of public companies to be socially responsible to the people and communities where they do business. At Macy’s, Inc., we hold those same beliefs – along with a belief that actions speak louder than words when it comes to helping tackle some of the toughest problems facing us today.”
The Donald was up to his attention-seeking antics until just days before the election.
