Starbucks, a company not friendly to the Second Amendment, just endorsed Hillary Clinton. Anytime a business endorses a political candidate, it is risking alienation by at least some of its customer base. The company’s CEO may have just caused yet another public uproar against the coffee eatery chain.
The company might want to take back its support of Hillary now that a massive group of conservatives are boycotting Starbucks establishments, but it is just as impossible to unring a bell.

“Hopefully, Hillary Clinton will be elected president,” Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz said during an interview with CNN.
The already controversial Howard Schultz went on to vehemently chastise Donald Trump, but he didn’t go about his rant in an upright or manly fashion.
The Starbucks CEO refused to show any common decency or respect to the Republican presidential candidate, opting not to even refer to Donald Trump by using his name.
“On the other side, we’ve seen such vitriolic display of bigotry and hate and divisiveness, and that is not the leadership we need for the future of the country,” Schulz added.
Boycotts are not new to Starbucks, but that does not mean such vocal outpourings of angst have not hurt the mega-corporation’s bottom line.
“I’m engaged as a private citizen recognizing that Hillary Clinton needs to be the next president of the United States,” Schulz also said.
Schulz’s anti-gun rights and strong stance against allowing customers to protect themselves by allowing concealed carry inside the establishments has also prompted a massive boycott against Starbucks—with Second Amendment supporters still refusing, after two years, to ever buy another cup of coffee from there again.
Starbucks attempting to guide its customers to a liberal viewpoint after the emergence of the Black Lives Matter separatists group also prompted a boycott.
Starbucks apparently thought only liberals are willing to buy its overpriced java and threw its full support—for what it’s worth—behind the Democrat career politician instead of the businessman who actually understands the struggles of running and growing a company.
