And very, very stupid…
I'd like to see some flash polling on this. Technically, the President mispronounced Meijer by pluralizing it. But it's common usage for a lot of Michigan folks who might hear it as a statement of solidarity. Ope! https://t.co/H2KxD8bux0

During the fifteen years I spent in Michigan, it was never not Meijers. (I think that’s how I filled out the many, many checks I wrote there.) Twenty-four-seven, all-purpose shopping, much loved!
If there were only vaccines at one Meijer, he would have been incorrect. However, many Meijer stores have vaccines — many MEIJERS ? https://t.co/6gLW8dzL3P

I’ll also say this:
1. Meijers is a treat. I try to go every visit back to Michigan.
2. My parents met at the Okemos Meijers, 10 minutes from MSU. I remember visiting the cashiers.
3. Can buy everything there: fruit, a bottle of vodka, a tree, a shirt, a goldfish, milk, etc. https://t.co/4nNBD0HAiL

If the pronunciation of Meijers becomes a partisan issue I’m moving to New Zealand.
