You Deserve A Snake Today

McDonald’s verified corporate Twitter account sent out a despicable tweet attacking President Donald Trump yesterday, cementing itself in the annals of businesses I boycott.

McDonald’s Corp (MCD.N) quickly deleted a tweet sent from the company’s handle slamming U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday and said its official Twitter account had been compromised.

The tweet, which was copied and shared widely before being deleted, came a day after the Twitter accounts of a number of major news organizations, chief executives, government agencies and other high-profile users were hijacked.

“Twitter notified us that our account was compromised. We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this,” McDonald’s spokeswoman Terri Hickey said in a statement.

Every single time some liberal – or liberal organization – gets backlash from a despicable tweet, they immediately claim they were hacked. Funny, not one of my 900+ followers have ever claimed their Twitter accounts have been hacked. Not one.

The tweet sent from @McDonaldsCorp on Thursday morning read: “@realdonaldtrump You are actually a disgusting excuse of a President and we would love to have @BarackObama back, also you have tiny hands.”

Former Obama Press Secretary Robert Gibbs is now the head of corporate relations at McDonald’s. Of course, a former Obama lackey wouldn’t have an ax to grind against Donald Trump, amirite?

Oh, and by the way, nowhere in McDonald’s explanatory tweet is an apology, so take that for what it is.

  1. I’m fat enough already that I don’t need to be eating McDonald’s food. Then again, there is that one problem that causes me to get a really upset stomach whenever I do. Now that they’ve joined the anti-Trump crowd, I’ll have a much better reason not to eat there.

  2. Disgusting. I hope Mickey D’s has some serious backlash from that stupid tweet. I would love to see it impact their bottom line negatively. Robert Gibbs, now there’s a waste of good air.

  3. If whoever runs the Twitter account for them was stupid enough to click on a link from someone they didn’t know, their password could have been stolen. There was a lot of that going on in my first year or so on Twitter. They mostly sent out DMs with links to see how many more people they could suck in. However, once they had your password, they could send out fake Tweets if they wanted to, but this doesn’t sound like that.

  4. RG – Yep, their fries are great, but everything else sucks. I don’t need their fries, and they don’t want my business.

    Metoo – Amen. I sincerely hope their stock plummets, because anyone stupid enough to alienate half its base deserves to lose money.

    Mike – Yeah, the fact it was pinned made me raise a few eyebrows.
