How do we teach Starbucks a lesson?
Uh, how about we pay them $8 to put "Trump" on a soy frap?
Yeah! That'll teach 'em! https://t.co/J5PElByeJL

As the Washington Post reports, a Florida real estate remodeler lost his temper when he felt disrespted at Starbucks: “‘I voted for Trump! You lost!’: White Starbucks customer accuses barista of ‘discrimination’”
Give him credit (being as Florida is a Stand-Your-Ground state) — he used his words, even if those words were sometimes NSFW.
This being 2016, of course another customer took some video, which inevitably went viral. Trump supporters nationwide considered themselves deeply, personally OUTRAGED!!! And because Trump supporters are not the sharpest crayons in the box, they announced another round of their notorious NATIONWIDE PROTESTS…

there are many extremely mad frog avatars yelling at me because I don't grasp the genius of paying Starbucks baristas to say "Trump"

Yeah, basically, these bold Sons of Liberty can’t do without convenient access to their favorite triple-caff vanilla grandes (no whip), so they resort to noisly signalling their public patriotism. As if the Starbucks baristas didn’t have enough to put up with already.
"Our #TrumpCup boycott was a success. Now what?"
"We protest gay marriage by blowing guys at a truck stop glory hole all day?"

At least NYC theater is a sufficiently niche market that the Hamilton ‘protests’ are unlikely to expand beyond noisy demands for apologies on Twitter…
#BoycottHamiton by buying those $800 crap seats on StubHub, but in the name Trump.

The irony of the #BoycottHamilton movement is that it's mostly folks who already boycott both hip-hop and knowledge of history.
