Poor L.L. Bean. All they want to do is sell down jackets to rugged, outdoorsy hipsters with a 5 o'clock shadow.
When Linda Bean (pictured), the granddaughter of the founder Leon Leonwood Bean, made a donation to Trump and it was made public, the #Grabyourwallet movement jumped on the opportunity to add another name to the "Let's boycott businesses that supported Trump" list.
L.L. Bean refused to take the bait. The only statement the 105-year-old company made was that "we stay out of politics." Then today at 5am EST, Trump took to Twitter with this personal "thank you" to Linda...
Thank you to Linda Bean of L.L.Bean for your great support and courage. People will support you even more now. Buy L.L.Bean. @LBPerfectMaine— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2017
In the back of my mind, I understand that there are numerous ethical violations going on here, but I can't stop laughing at this.
