(PoliticalLookout.com)- Tire company Goodyear recently banned the wearing of all Make America Great Again Hats, and all other clothes and accessories with conservative slogans, from being worn within their company. This is not a ban on political slogans or campaigning, but a specific ban against anything even remotely Republican or conservative.
President Trump responded to the news on Wednesday, telling his Twitter followers to boycott the company after they disrespected half of the American public.
“Don’t buy GOODYEAR TIRES – They announced a BAN ON MAGA HATS,” Trump said.
Don’t buy GOODYEAR TIRES – They announced a BAN ON MAGA HATS. Get better tires for far less! (This is what the Radical Left Democrats do. Two can play the same game, and we have to start playing it now!).

President Trump added that boycotting is the game the “Radical Left Democrats” play and that Republicans need to start playing the same game.
The response was exactly what you expect. Conservatives praised President Trump for being just as harsh back to Goodyear, while Democrats slammed the president for attacking an American company. While it is true, as Mia Farrow said on Twitter, that Goodyear Tire is an American company that employs 69,000 Americans, it is also true that the company insulted millions of Americans by banning the wearing of conservative slogans while advocating for far-left Democrats.
Facts: Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company is an American tire manufacturing company founded in 1898 and based in Akron,Ohio. They employ about 69,000 people including at least a thousand veterans

How would Mia Farrow and other Democrats respond if a major American company banned Democrat slogans but let people wear MAGA hats? We saw exactly how they responded when the CEO of Goya Foods said something positive about President Donald Trump. The initiated a huge boycott that involved celebrities from virtually every industry.
How can they attack the president for calling for a boycott on a company that displayed explicit bias, when that’s what the Democrats do anytime someone says something vaguely positive about Trump?
