Arizona Ladies’ Ivanka Trump
Video Goes Viral And Vile
Protests Are The American Way, But The Cause Must Be Just: A Retail Chain Dropping The First Daughter’s Clothing Line Because It Wasn’t Selling Is Just More Of The Same Insanity That Is Suffocating A Cross-Section Of America

Feb. 17, 2017 — There can be no denying that about half of the U.S. thinks the other half is crazy.
And when I say crazy, I mean, completely, utterly, f-ing loony birds with wings.
But the unfortunate truth is the other half feels EXACTLY the same way.
And in this age of fake news and constant attacks on the media, Donald Trump and those complicit in his ascent are creating monsters they simply cannot control. The whole hullaballoo over Nordstrom dropping Ivanka Trump’s clothing line is a clear indication of that.
It is a scandal without rhyme nor reason. There is no indication that Nordstrom had any sort of political agenda.
As a result, protests have gone viral, but more importantly, they’ve gone vile, too.
President Trump indicated Nordstrom was acting politically. The company—not known as a bastion of liberalism at any point in its more than 100-year history— all of a sudden became a target for the president’s supporters. Sure, alt-righters will say the company supports ending gun violence and donates to groups that “support abortion” like the YWCA. But it's not like they are a bunch of hippies. The firm is in business to make money, and it wouldn’t surprise me to find out more of their customers voted for Trump than Hillary Rodham Clinton.
It was a business decision, something the president should have understood.
And yes, he should have also understood that as the leader of the U.S., his daughter being dropped by a large national chain was small potatoes: too small even for a Twitter comment.
Do I have to mention Kellyanne Conway took to Fox News to thump the iconic chain before performing a commercial for Ivanka’s line via Amazon?
Now, that battle is going even more vile ... err ... viral than that.
And this time it hits even closer to home for us living in the Phoenix metro.
Several upper-middle class women shot video of them going into the Nordstrom at Chandler Fashion Center and closing down their credit accounts and saying they’re going to shop Dillard's instead.
Dillards gets a “3” score from conservative witch-hunters 2ndvote.com, while Nordstrom gets a “1.8.”
Ooooh, they support groups that support same-sex marriage. Ahhhh, so awful.
Now that my tongue is out of my cheek, let me also say this type of protest shows nothing but blind support. These women aren’t really boycotting Nordstrom because of their political stands, but because Trump and his cronies say they are partisan by dropping Ivanka Trump’s product line.
Besides, none of the Trump’s even need the money. What about the low-level employee that might have to get another job after getting laid off since these ladies aren’t going to be spending thousands a month for things they probably don’t really need.
That’s what happens when viral goes vile, I guess.
