The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Liberals and liberally-run companies seem to do this and expect to not suffer the consequences for it but continually do. Perhaps they are gluttons for punishment in addition to being crazy or just can’t pass up an opportunity to use their products to slam President Donald Trump.
There’s a long list of celebrities and companies who have destroyed everything they built to get a shot off at our president. Now, just a few short weeks after one adult beverage business lost a lot of customers when conservatives spotted what they printed on their bottles, popular vodka maker Smirnoff has now joined these losers at the bottom of the barrel.
The company recently rolled out a new ad campaign which someone who was probably paid to much to come up with, thought was pretty clever. Unfortunately, rather than record sales from it which they had hoped for, the spirits maker can expect a massive decline in sales after conservatives noticed what they did in their ad directly targeted at the Commander-in-Chief.
While 127 companies are actively protesting Trump’s important and necessary travel ban at the risk of their business, Smirnoff seems to be drunk off their liberal agenda in a different way that’s definitely going to leave them with a bad hangover. They can choose to ignore the mass exodus of customers that Pepsi had when their CEO came out against Trump and Target stores had after catering to gender confusion in their restrooms. However, taking a jab at his alleged and unproven ties to Russia was apparently worth it.
The Washington Examiner reports:
“Smirnoff Vodka is mocking President Trump’s alleged ties to Russia in a new ad campaign.”
“In a billboard spotted in the U.S., the vodka company touts that it’s ‘made in America’.”
‘But we’d be happy to talk about our ties to Russia under oath,’ the ad quips, referencing Trump, who said Friday that he would ‘100 percent’ be willing to testify under oath about the Russia investigation.”

While Smirnoff will soon experience the fallout of their failed ad campaign, which will be a loss in a lot of discerning customers, what happened to Heineken beer should have served as a warning.
Over Memorial Day weekend, the brewery decided to use the patriotic holiday to make a very un-American point on their bottles. When drinkers who like this brand picked up a six pack and popped the cap, they were rightfully irate to see what they were tricked into buying.
On the back of the bottles was a cheers for all their customers to drink to, which droves didn’t agree with as we saw in the immediate aftermath on social media.
“Here’s To An Open World
To a world without borders or barriers. To the belief that there is more that unites us than divides us. To find common ground to raise a bottle with the person next to you. Because a stranger is just a friend that you haven’t had a cold Heineken with yet.
Open Your World.”
If the bitter beer wasn’t enough to turn your stomach, the progressive political message on it would surely make you hurl, and it did for a lot of Americans. The incensed reactions among patriots were loud and clear online as was the immediate switch in brand loyalty. Beer is a pretty popular beverage in America and there’s a lot of brew options out there, including companies like Budweiser who proudly print the American flag on their cans and leave politics to people to discuss on their own — perhaps over a cold one.
We the people have the right to choose what we spend our hard-earned money on and you can bet it won’t be on a brand that doesn’t support our president.
