Way to go Deplorables! Don’t mess with Sean Hannity, Mr. Brock! David Brock of Media Matters began a campaign to have Hannity advertisers let him go because of the interview Sean did with Roy Moore where he was accused of dating underaged girls. The problem was – Media Matters misrepresented what transpired during the interview.
When Hannity and Fox News found out that Keurig had pulled its advertising dollars from the Sean Hannity show, the fans rose up and defended Sean Hannity in a, literally, smashing way!
Keurig, in an unusual move, announced publicly on twitter that they were pulling their advertising:
Donna, thank you for your concern and for bringing this to our attention. We worked with our media partner and FOX news to stop our ad from airing during the Sean Hannity Show.

This quickly escalated to a SMASH VIDEO campaign of Keurig machines where fans of the Hannity show began trashing their Keurig branded coffee machines and posting the videos to twitter with the hashtag #BoycottKeurig. In response to the #1 rated show across all cable networks, Hannity responded in an awesome way! And check out this tweet! Hannity is replacing the Keurig casualties! Bravo Hannity Bravo!
Deplorable friends, I am buying 500 coffee makers tomorrow to give away!! Details on radio and TV. Hint; best videos!!

The Washington Times reported that:
In a memo to employees published by The Washington Post, Mr. Gamgort said the company’s “highly unusual” decision to announce its plans publicly was “outside of company protocols.”
“This gave the appearance of ‘taking sides’ in an emotionally charged debate that escalated on Twitter and beyond over the weekend, which was not our intent,” the CEO wrote. “Clearly, this is an unacceptable situation that requires an overhaul of our issues response and external communications policies and the introduction of safeguards to ensure this never happen again. Our company and brand reputations are too valuable to be put at risk in this manner.
“I apologize for any negativity that you have experienced as a result of this situation and assure you that we will learn and improve going forward,” he added.
Looks like the Deplorables came to the defense of what is right and what is wrong. It does not appear that too much of anyone is believing the Washington Post smear story about Republican Senator runner Judge Roy Moore.
Drop a line below and let us know.
