Furious Democrats Call For Boycott of In-N-Out Burgers After Donation to GOP #burgers #Democrats

The California Democratic Party chairman is calling for a boycott of In-N-Out Burger after it was revealed this week that the fast food chain donated $25,000 to the California Republican Party.

“Et tu In-N-Out?” Eric Bauman tweeted.

“Tens of thousands of dollars donated to the California Republican Party… it’s time to #BoycottInNOut — let Trump and his cronies support these creeps… perhaps animal style!”

His call for boycotting the restaurant came after a public filing showed that it had donated funds to the California Republican Party.

Journalist Gabe Schneider first reported on the filing, which quickly led to the hashtag #boycottInNOut. Los Angeles Magazine also reported details about the filing.


Fortune noted that In-N-Out has made donations to different groups in the past: Campaign finance filings show that restaurant donated $30,000 in 2017 and then $50,000 this year to Californians for Jobs and a Strong Economy, a political action committee that supports Democratic candidates who are considered cordial to businesses.

Meanwhile, on the other side of America, the mayor of Somerville, Massachusetts called for a public boycott of the Sam Adams brewery this week, slamming founder Jim Koch after he said the President’s tax cuts helped his company compete with international corporations in a highly-competitive market.

Mayor Joseph Curtatone called for the boycott of one of the region’s largest employers after Koch praised Trump during a meeting at the White House, saying the GOP tax cuts were helping his company “kick a**,” Fox News reports.

“Hey Jim Koch! While you were thanking Trump for your tax break, did you happen to express any concern for the families separated under his cruel and inhumane immigration enforcement policy? @SamuelAdamsBeer,” tweeted the mayor.

“I mean, Americans — I’m the largest American-owned brewery at 2 percent market share. We were paying 38 percent taxes … and competing against people who were paying 20. And now we have a level playing field, and we’re going to kick their a**,” Koch said at the dinner.
