BOYCOTT: Disney CEO Just Did Something DISGUSTING To President Trump- SPREAD THIS

Like this article?


In December, President Donald Trump announced that he would hold an economic policy forum at the White House billing the event as a meeting of “CEOs and business leaders who know what it takes to create jobs and drive economic growth.”

Blackstone chairman Stephen A. Schwarzman organized the event with many executives from many large companies to be in attendance.  Among them was to be Disney CEO Bob Iger.  He was one of very few entertainment executives that were asked to participate in the event.  Iger has chosen to refuse the invitation.

Iger is a long time supporter of Hillary Clinton contributing $400,000 to Clinton and other Democrats in the past several years. Rumors have abounded since Iger’s refusal to attend the policy forum that many at Disney have criticized Igor’s decision, specifically some of the animators. Meanwhile, it appears that leftists watchdog groups had a hand in bullying Iger with regard to his invitation. The corporate watchdog group SumOfUs had called for Iger to step down from the panel.

The group launched a  petition calling on Iger and other members of the Trump economic advisory group to speak out against the new president’s ban on refugees and travel from seven Muslim-majority nations. Participation on the panel, without condemning the travel ban, makes Iger and the others “complicit in the Trump’s Administrations cruel and un-American policies.”

The policy forum is scheduled to be a who’s who from many large companies with confirmed attendance from executives from companies such as SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick, JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, Walmart CEO Doug McMillon and General Motors CEO Mary Barra.

Travis Kalanick Bob Iger

Uber’s Kalanick has recently run into some trouble of his own and is making attempts to calm anger that recently erupted from Uber users regarding the company’s recent refusal to participate in a strike organized by the New York taxi drivers in their efforts to protest President Trump’s recent temporary immigration ban.

Kalanick responded with grace and class when questioned about why he was attending the policy forum, stating he was going so he could have “a seat at the table.” He went on to state, “I understand that many people internally and externally may not agree with that decision, and that’s OK. It’s the magic of living in America that people are free to disagree. But whatever your view, please know that I’ve always believed in principled confrontation and just change; and have never shied away (maybe to my detriment) from fighting for what’s right.”

Bravo Mr. Kalnick! Thank you for understanding what freedom is about with that insightful answer.  So it comes as a surprise to hear that Kalanick has now caved to the demands of the left in choosing not to attend the meeting.

According to Variety

Kalanick faced even more pressure to step down from the Trump panel, as protesters mounted a #DeleteUber online campaign in part because of his participation. There was also anger directed at the company for turning off surge pricing to and from John F. Kennedy International Airport on Saturday evening, a move that some protesters took as trying to undercut the cab drivers union. The cab drivers had been part of the JFK protests of Trump’s policies.

I personally find it ironic that just a few weeks ago we were banning Cuban refugees, but no one had an issue.  In 2015, we were again talking about banning Syrian refugees, yet no issues.  In 2011, Iraqis were banned for approximately 6 months. Still no issues.  In 2016 alone, Obama dropped more than 26,000 bombs on the Middle East and many in the U.S. Intelligence communities admitting that there is simply no way to vet refugees from countries like Syria due to the countries themselves having no data from which to allow the vetting process to take place.

Yet, these companies and many others are willing to just throw open the figurative doors to America and allow whomever and whatever to roam free.  I guess these terror attacks will have to occur in their front yard or hurt someone they love before it matters and that’s really sad.

God Bless.
