    Meh.

    "That prompted Grab Your Wallet, a boycott effort against companies that carry Trump brand products or have other connections to the president-elect, to add L.L. Bean to its list. Organizers have said they will not take L.L. Bean off its website until Linda Bean is ejected from the board."

    Don't remember Apple getting a boycott when lil' Timmy felt it was okay to endorse Clinton.

    Hence my whole meh. If you chose to boycott it, enjoy your Android....snicker.
    Trump did call for a boycott of Apple, back when the San Bernardino terrorist attack was the big story and the FBI was wanting Apple to unlock their iPhone. Trump was wrong then.

    Once he's not president or before he's elected. Certainly.

    Not sure as a government official.

    It's amazing how this anti-establishment President elect appears to be the very textbook definition of elitist cronyism. His only virtue seems to be his ego driven transparency (marred by his ego driven perception of reality). The post it's self goes beyond 'diplomatic' thanks, and dives into the seedy realm of hawking goods.

    Yeah, pointing out the fragile with their calls of boycotts really shows them their hypocrisy.

    What does that have to do with the president-elect telling the American people to buy products form a specific company ... a company that give him tens of thousands in campaign contributions?

    Can you focus on the actual issue at hand without trying to deflect and distract?

    He isn't directly telling the people to buy Carrier products.

    The confirmation bias is palpable.

    Nor is he in the tweet in the OP.
    I was wrong, focused on one part of the tweet.

    Criticism over this is pretty silly. The only people raising this as an issue are cry-baby Hillary losers and the leftist propaganda media outlets like WaPo who are no longer communicating with planet earth.

    Great, so you have no problem with the president directly choosing businesses that he'll endorse while in office. And you have no concern with the fact that he's endorsing a company that donated and supported his campaign.

    I'll have to assume that all the talk of "pay to play" during the campaign isn't an issue with you. You're happy to see people/companies pay ... and you're happy to see them rewarded for it.

    Got it.

    And now that your focus has shifted, does that change your opinion about this?
