It is very unlikely that Ivanka Trump has ever opened a can of beans. We are not even convinced that she has ever even eaten a can of beans. Does anyone believe that Ivanka includes Goya brand frijoles negros?
So WHY is Ivanka suddenly telling America how great these beans are?
In the history of… ANYWHERE… has the daughter of a head of state ever started shilling for the corporations that support her father? We mean straight up endorsing a product like she is some sort of Kardashian?
It all started when CEO Bob Unanue of Goya Foods praised President Trump. That quickly prompted anger and a boycott of the Goya brand. Unanue said that America was BLESSED to have a leader like Trump.
Well, many Americans were annoyed that Unanue would suggest that anyone is blessed to have a leader that constantly makes disparaging remarks about Latin Americans –calling them “invaders”, referring to immigrants from “shithole countries”, and claiming they are rapists and criminals. More important than the name calling is the children separated from their families and kept in cages at the border with Mexico.
People are no longer willing to put up with Trump’s hate and they are not willing to buy the products of those corporations that support Trump.
Unanue is confused that a boycott of his product means his speech has been suppressed. The opposite is true. Unanue’s speech has been amplified, reaching far more people than it ever would have if he simply had made some neutral comment about Trump. Unanue has every right to say that he he feels that America is blessed with this Presidency.
The public has the right to respond to Unanue’s comments and they say they don’t want to eat his beans anymore. In the free market of ideas, speech has consequences.
Good thing, too. Everyone knows that delicious food does not come out of a can. The best food comes from Abuelita’s kitchen.
