Trump Slaps Nordstrom Department Store For Dropping Daughter’s Fashion Line

President Crybaby is upset this morning that First Daughter Ivanka Trump’s line of merchandise was dropped by Nordstrom Department store last week for poor sales.

Nordstrom said last week that the brand’s declining sales led to its decision. “Each year we cut about 10% [of brands carried] and refresh our assortment with about the same amount,” a Nordstrom representative told Business Insider. “In this case, based on the brand’s performance we’ve decided not to buy it for this season.”

So what’s a dad to do when he feels his daughter’s been slighted? Take to Twitter, of course.

According to White House schedule, this tweet was sent 20 minutes into his daily intelligence briefing. Is it possible his head’s not in the game?

For someone who’s claim to fame is being a successful businessman, I’m surprised that Trump believes being “a great person” should equal success in business.

I wonder how many “great” people Trump has refused to pay for their services over the years?

UPDATE – “Sparky” Spicer did ‘attack dog’ duty on the issue when asked about it today.

Via TalkingPointsMemo:

Spicer told reporters during his daily press briefing that the decision — which Nordstrom said was a result of poor sales, not politics — was because of the clothing company’s displeasure with President Donald Trump’s executive orders and his policies.

“I think this is less about his family’s business and an attack on his daughter,” Spicer said. “He ran for president. He won. He’s leading this country. I think for people to take out their concern about his actions or his executive orders on members of his family, he has every right to stand up for his family and applaud their business activities, their success.”

Franklin Graham Doesn’t Like The Word “Spouse”

In light of same-sex marriage now being the law of the land, there has been a proposal, the “Amend the Code for Marriage Equality Act” sponsored by Rep. Lois Capps of California, to change government forms to use the word “spouse” instead of “husband” and “wife” since many married couples will now have two husbands or wives.

While it’s a logical change to make, anti-gay Franklin Graham is not having any of it. His take is that this is a further assault on ‘biblical marriage.’

From Graham’s Facebook page:

“Where will the assault on biblical marriage end? Now liberal politicians in California want to ban the words ‘husband’ and ‘wife’ from being used in federal law. They say these are ‘gendered terms’ that discriminate against homosexuals.

“You’re absolutely right they are gendered terms—because marriage was created to be gendered! The One who created marriage defined it as between a man and a woman.

“They have already succeeded in deleting husband and wife from California law last year, now they want to take it to the national level.

“This is shameful! Call your representatives in Congress and the Senate to let them know that you oppose the ‘Amend the Code for Marriage Equality Act.’ Many wedding ceremonies include the familiar line, ‘Speak now or forever hold your peace’ – Well we’ve got to speak now!”

Former GOP adviser James Richardson whines that he doesn’t have equal marriage rights

James Richardson – a former spokesman/adviser for Gov. Haley Barbour, Gov. Jon Huntsman and the Republican National Party – penned a “pity party” op-ed for the Washington Post this week bemoaning the fact that living in Georgia he can’t get married to the person he loves – because he’s gay.

Richardson admits that his resume puts him in an atypical position to complain about his lack of marriage rights. In his essay, Richardson writes “As a former spokesman for the Republican National Committee and adviser to prominent party figures, I’m also a professional political operative who’s helped install in government those who perpetuate marriage bias in America.”

But now he says “I feel forced to out myself.”

Oh my! Forced!

After serving years with the party that would deny him many rights based on his sexual orientation – presumably because he put his desire to make money over his need for equal rights – NOW he feels “less than.”

 NOW he wants to jump on the “right side of history.”

“For my admission here, I will alienate friends whose faiths regard my sexuality as culturally corrosive. I’ll suffer the snickering of those across the aisle whose politics regard my own as personally injurious. And conservative clients may regard me as a liability. After all, the tide is not as unidirectional as people say.”

Isn’t that awful? He may “alienate” friends for being himself.

My advice? Get better friends.

Along the way, Richardson makes sure his coming out doesn’t miss noting his “just like you” factor by making sure to inform the reader that he goes to college football games and church every Sunday.

And yet, he still feels that he may lose friends by coming out.

On one hand, yes – welcome to the daylight James. Welcome to being who you are.

On the other hand, please know LGBT folks aren’t “snickering” at you. We’re just not impressed with your sniveling, late-in-the-game, cowardly whining. There’s a word that describes people like you – “Quisling.”  Go look it up.

Don’t cry about how politicians you helped get elected deny you rights. Start doing something about it.

We’ll see how we feel about you once you balance the tally sheet on marriage equality.

I know everyone comes out on their own schedule.  But, everyone doesn’t empower those who would deny millions rights, then cry when they want to have those rights now denied.
