Dear Groupon and Clorex,

I hear you sponsor NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice.

The stunt Trump pulled, fuelling the whole birthers nonsense, was beyond the pale. I’m not even American and I’m disgusted!

I can only assume he played to the basest, racist instincts of a portion of Americans. Is that who Groupon and Clorex wants to get behind?

I’ll assume so, unless I hear you’ve stopped sponsoring his show.

Groupon, I’ve unsubscribed from your deals effective 13 minutes ago.

Clorox, I was happy with your Green Works line but I won’t be purchasing any more.

I’m voting with my dollar. Trump has disgraced himself, disgraced NBC and disgraced the USA at least in this Canadian’s eyes. Lose him, and I’ll come back.

    I am so disgusted by the whole thing. It was top news on so many of the channels and now Trump is going on about the President’s grades in college. Trump get a life – a real life. Plus I think that many Americans need to get a life as well! With all the things that are going on in the world I am sure they could use their energy in a much more productive and positive way.

    Sorry for babbling but I am so disgusted by it all. It is a shame that the President had to even publish his birth certificate.

    I proud of you Nancy for taking a stand!

    Such an eloquent post! But why not leave the world of big corporations even further behind and not opt in again? Lots of alternatives to clorox – smaller companies with values perhaps more aligned with yours. Other news sources than NBC, too.
