Nordstrom made headlines this past week when the retailer stopped carrying Ivanka Trump’s brand, which includes clothing, handbags and shoes. Nordstrom is not the first to do this, and they likely won’t be the last: Macy’s is reportedly also facing immense pressure to drop Ivanka Trump.  Prior to Nordstrom, department store chains Neiman Marcus and Belk also cut ties with the brand, as well as online retailers Shoes.com, Jet, ShopStyle and Gilt.

This creates a particularly interesting precedent, and establishes a frightening mentality: politics are not separate from the person, and American consumers should “punish” those whom they disagree with.  What if republicans decided to adopt this mentality, and boycott any and all who supported Hillary Clinton?

Here are a few changes a republican would have to make to their daily lives:

Cancel your subscription to your morning paper, because these newspapers endorsed Clinton: The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, The Baltimore Sun, Houston Chronicle, New York Daily News, Boston Globe, The Dallas Morning News, The Cincinnati Enquirer, The Arizona Republic, San Francisco Chronicle, The Berkshire Eagle, Portland Press Herald, Falls Church News-Press, Dallas Voice, Akron Beacon Journal, San Diego Union-Tribune, Sacramento Bee, Chicago Sun-Times, The Tampa Bay Times, Seattle Times, Miami Herald and many more…

In all, 240 newspapers, with circulation over 20,000, endorsed Clinton.  Only 19 newspapers endorsed President Trump.

If you’re more of a magazine person, best to stop reading Vogue, The New Yorker, Variety, The Atlantic and Foreign Policy, as all have editors that endorsed Clinton.

Say goodbye to your favorite TV shows, movies, comedy shows and music, because these celebrities endorsed and/or campaigned for Clinton.

Top Chef (host Padma Lakshmi), West Wing (Richard Schiff, Bradley Whitford, Dulé Hill, Allison Janney, Joshua Malina and Mary McCormack), Empire (producer Lee Daniels, cast members Taraji P. Henson, Bryshere Gray, Trai Byers, Jussie Smollett, Tasha Smith, Gabourey Sidibe and Grace Byers), The View, Orange is the New Black (cast member Uzo Aduba), Keeping Up with the Kardashians (Kim Kardashian), Scandal (cast member Kerry Washington), Superstore (cast member America Ferrera) and many more…

Comedians:

Kathy Griffin, Sarah Silverman, Chelsea Handler, Samantha Bee, Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham (also producer of HBO show “Girls”) and many more…

Turn off ESPN and Fox Sports, because these professional athletes and sports figures supported Clinton: LeBron James, Magic Johnson, Mark Cuban, Alex Rodriguez, Jim Brown, Carmelo Anthony, Stephen Curry, Abby Wambach, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Hank Aaron, Tony Gonzalez, Mike Tomlin, Grant Hill and many more…

no-starbucks-2Delete your social media accounts and sell off your electronics, because these tech industry leaders supported Clinton: Tim Cook (CEO of Apple), Sheryl Sandberg (COO of Facebook), David Karp (CEO of Tumblr), Drew Houston (CEO of Dropbox), Ruth Porat (CFO of Google), Reid Hoffman (CEO of LinkedIn), Chris Sacca (early investor in Twitter, Instagram and Uber) and many more…

Just a few more restrictions: Don’t fly Delta (Richard Anderson, executive chairman), cancel Netflix (Reed Hastings, CEO of Netflix), choose vacation accommodations carefully (Nathan Blecharczyk and Brian Chesky, co-founders of Airbnb), switch to Sam’s Club or GFS (Jeff Brotman, co-founder and chairman of Costco), give up your phone plan (Jim Cicconi, senior executive vice president, AT&T), find a travel agent (Barry Diller, chairman and senior executive of Expedia), cancel your cable (Candy Ergen, co-founder, DISH Network), no more BET (Robert Johnson, chairman, The RLJ Companies and founder of BET and Debra Lee, chairman and CEO of BET), time for a new skin care routine (Andrea Jung, former CEO of Avon), stay at Trump’s Hotel and Casino next time you’re in Las Vegas (James J. Murren, chairman and CEO, MGM Resorts International), Chicago baseball fans should stick with the White Sox (Laura M. Ricketts, co-owner, Chicago Cubs), and finally, give up your online restaurant reviews (Jeremy Stoppelman, the CEO and co-founder, of Yelp).

America: Respect free speech, respect free expression and respect the businesses that employ countless Americans, including Ivanka Trump’s.  And please, separate politics from the person.

  1. I already avoid supporting about 80% of that list and am currently weaning myself from the other 20%! I abhor liberal elites.

    • Thank you!! ME, too!! When the “kids” were home alone, Communism (esp during those 8 years) got its foot in the door. Now that the “parents” are back, we have to find a way to eradicate that bad influence. Maybe kill it, and then dismember it.

  2. Thank you for listing more stuff I can and do live without. There is NOTHING on your list I can’t live without.
    I stopped watching MSM in 2001, thank you Dan Rather you a**hole. I turned of cable 5 years ago. I am a retired firefighter who finished out a career by working a sports riot 6-7 years ago. That’s when I removed those chicken sh*ts from my life.
    I haven’t spent a dime on a major city, Hollywood, pro sports, the music industry, or anything related to America’s sad a** college system.
    It is time conservative people learned something as well, stop supporting people who treat you like crap. These lefties will never change. Treat them with the cold distain they deserve.

  3. Sh*t, I don’t even watch Fox News anymore. I’m waaaaay ahead of you guys….

    • One America News Network (OANN) is a GREAT site (unfortunately, not available from all providers). You can go to their website for news and TV channels.

  4. Holy Toledo! I don’t use or require the services of one single person/entity in this article and I don’t miss or need any of them. Its liberating to know that I’ve already been able to spot and move away from everything here.

  5. I’d like to know why James Rogers didn’t put Facebook and Twitter on his boycott list. Zuckerberg funds Planned Parenthood. Facebook donated millions to Hillary and Obama, and both Facebook and Twitter support gay unions.

    I’m a die hard Steeler fan.
    I really wish Coach Tomlin
    was not on that list.

    Most of my friends have given
    up on the NFL.

    Love Mike because I love
    my team. ” Poor guy”

    Have no problem boycotting .
    Just a lousing statement ,kind
    of like getting loud when argue.

    I wish my Stillers were winning
    like my President !

    • Hey Joe Dan Cousin,
      And more bad news: Are you aware that Dan Rooney dedicated the 2009 Steelers’ Super Bowl trophy to Obama?
      http://www.cbsnews.com/pictures/super-bowl-champs-at-the-white-house/14/
      As a Browns fan I feel your pain– I gave up on the Browns last year when Haslam refused to fire Isaiah Crowell for advocating the assassination of policemen.
      Unfortunately, the biggest trouble with conservatives is that they lack the dedication to their cause that the liberals have for theirs. Several years ago liberals were willing to destroy an entire fast-food chain (Chik-fil-a) because it’s owner defended Godly marriage. However, even knowing they are funding abortions, many conservatives won’t give up the convenience of Facebook. Just think about that– their Facebook page is more important than killing innocent lives! What chance does conservatism have when faced with those odds?

    Love your show!
    Starting to check you
    site two or three times
    a day.

    Feel a new episode !

  8. Joe Dan,
    The Ricketts family, owner of the Chicago Cubs actually supported Donald J. Trump’s campaign…not right away but they came around. I’m a huge Cubs fan and no way could I be a White Sox fan, lol. Meanwhile, I don’t do business with most of the entities you listed. Started boycotting Starbucks when the CEO decided to hire 10,000 immigrants. I keep my FB acct to post your videos and Sundance’s articles. Thank God you are part of the new media…keep,up the good work.
