The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive”

This was a tweet by Donald Trump on November 6th, about a week after Hurricane Sandy.

I thought there was no appropriate reply or response to this. But today I was sent a petition to urge Macy’s to sever ties with a dangerous and destructive public figure.

From the petition:

Macy’s has a special deal with Donald Trump. They invest in developing Trump’s brand and sell his clothing line and fragrance at their locations. To this end, they have had major events at Macy’s Herald Square location and they often feature and promote Trump in advertisements designed to celebrate the magic of Macy’s.

I’m not much of a petition signer, because I’m not convinced that politicians are responsive to anything except voting.

But corporations like Macy’s get voted on every time a consumer buys something. And since purchases are more frequent than elections, I’m signing this motherfucker.
