Drinking Starbucks funds effort against Pres. Trump

Overpriced brand undermines President Trump and Republican voters

If you were a Barack Obama fan as John McCain turned out to be, even as he waged a lukewarm political battle against BO —- or were sucked into McCain’s constructed view of himself as Obama later was — there’s a new guy on the political horizon who is custom tailored for your tastes.

Enter former Starbucks CEO and chairman Howard Schultz.  The multibillionaire is reportedly mulling a run for the presidency in 2020. In advance of an official launch, the lielong Democrat who would run as an Independent is assembling a team.

Schultz has already hired former Obama aide Bill Burton as a communications adviser. He initially will be charged with rolling out the story of Schultz’ humble beginnings to what they hope are a gullible public, in an attempt to make the liberal elitist appear more mainstream.

Also brought on board the not-yet-official campaign is PR exec Steve Schmidt, a McCain operative who managed John McCain’s failed 2008 presidential campaign. Schmidt renounced his Republican affiliation in June 2018, grousing it had “become the party of Trump.” The newly minted Independent went on to vilify the GOP and conservative voters as “corrupt, indecent and immoral … filled with feckless cowards who disgrace and dishonor the legacies of the party’s greatest leaders. Today the GOP has become a danger to our democracy and our values.”

Describing his new political orientation, Schmidt, now affiliated with leftist MSNBC, stated: “This Independent voter will be aligned with the only party left in America that stands for what is right and decent and remains fidelitous to our Republic, objective truth, the rule of law and our Allies. That party is the Democratic Party.”

For political expediency and job security, the craven Schmidt has morphed into a registered “Independent.”

On his self aggrandizing web page, Schmidt credits himself for transforming John McCain’s campaign “from corpse to contender.”

Hopefully he’ll rely on that same transformative magic for Howard Schultz.

    Schultz and Michael Crow will have a “conversation” tomorrow at ASU. You can purchase tickets to hear a lot of self indulgent puffery and not very concealed liberalism. This is obviously part of a pre announcement kickoff.

    If Schultz hired Schmidt it must mean Nicole Wallace and Meghan McCain can’t be too far behind.

  3. George Moriarty says:

    Any potential presidential candidate who uses “fidelitous” in a public setting is seriously out of touch with the electorate. He’s a has-been at Starbucks and will be a never-was in the 2020 election.

    Only the self-declared McRoyals. Money is no indication of intellect, manners or class.

    I enjoy my morning coffee, but nothing could ever induce me to spend 5 bucks for a cup—especially if I knew it was making a very wealthy far left liberal even wealthier.

    We rarely go to movies for the same reason. What’s the point of making the Hollywood leftists who work again all we’ve worked for even richer with our ticket purchases? They’re not going donate our money to Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, or their ilk.

  6. Jeff Parker says:

    Democrats were apoplectic about Howard Schultz!

    Thats’ a reason to cheer.

    If he runs and throws big money at an independent campaign, that would hurt the democrat, right?

    Even Schmidt attacked Flake for confirming Kavanaugh, and won’t be surprised if Schmidt backed Sinema like most of the McCain goons.

  8. Ellsworth says:

    Democrat turned Independent Schultz is the Democrat Party’s worst nightmare. He’ll siphon votes away from the main Dem candidates like ancient Socialist Bernie Sanders, nutcase Pocahontas Warren, Socialist Kamala Harris and Uncle Joe Biden.
