You can bet left-wing activists are going to call for a boycott Under Armour now. On Tuesday, Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank was effusive in his praise of President Donald Trump in an interview on CNBC.
Plank commended the president, saying “To have such a pro-business president is something that is a real asset for the country.” Going further, Plank alluded to Trump’s plan for the wall: “He wants to build things. He wants to make bold decisions and be really decisive.” The CEO liked this action, he said, because he is “a big fan of people that operate in the world of ‘publish and iterate’ versus ‘think, think, think, think, think.”
It won’t be long before liberals attempt to shame people into silencing Plank and his business. Since Trump was elected in November, they have gone after brands like New Balance and L.L. Bean for their support of the nation’s leader. We’ll have to see if any lefties post videos of themselves burning their Under Armour clothing, like they did with New Balance. For some reason, it seems unlikely that many of these social media warriors own much sports apparel to begin with.
This is a good time for people who don’t oppose our president to show their appreciation of Under Armour’s respect for President Trump. As American patriots demonstrated by downloading Lady Gaga music after her apolitical Super Bowl performance, there is a lot of money to be made by those who refuse to sing paeans to the gods of social justice activism.
