Is Macy's going to dump Trump?

Trump

How much would you pay for the chance to turn the table and tell the star of NBC's The Apprentice, Donald Trump, that he was fired? Personally, I would pay at least $18 U.S. 

The internet is trying to persuade Macy's to make their dreams come true, as a petition to have Trump removed from selling his brand of clothing and cologne at the retailer. Shockingly, it is being lead by liberal group MoveOn.org, saying that his sexist and "racially charged" comments go against Macy's social responsibility policy. 

“Trump’s brand is consequence-free bullying,” said petition organizer Angelo Carusone. Carusone previously tried to get Fox News Channel to fire Glenn Beck and says this campaign was based on Trump's $5 million offer to President Barack Obama. "There are perverse incentives that rewards Mr. Trump for being totally irresponsible, reckless and mean spirited."

Singer Cher took to Twitter Sunday in support of the petition, saying she would never go to Macy's again as long as Trump was involved with the organization. Predictably, Trump and Cher got into a war of words that I won't make you suffer through. Suffice to say, they are about as likely to break bread together as Trump is with Obama.

Carusone has been accused of trying to stifle Trump's right to free speech. Carusone sees it differently.

“I’m sensitive to that issue,” Carusone said. “If people really want a place where we can comfortably engage in a robust discussion about robust ideas -- the reality is that the kind of bullying Trump is engaged in doesn’t help that environment.”

Macy's has not commented, but seems like it is sticking by Trump's side.

Behind every personal fortune is a public scandal. I have no doubt that a good audit would put Trump in his place-at least it would identify how our tax system is used by the well to do and what is wrong with it 1%. RR

To be fair, if a bully is considerably bigger than you, all punching them is going to get you is an extended ass kicking.
