The saying that there’s “no truth in advertising” couldn’t be more accurate in these recent campaigns, especially with regards to perceived ties Trump has with Russia. It’s a poorly planned jab too, I might add, considering that it came out about the same time as FBI Director James Comey’s testimony which only proved that what the president has been saying all along with true, effectively exonerating him of wrongdoing on a number of false allegations against him.”Trump insists that he never asked former FBI Director James Comey for loyalty, and did not ask Comey to drop the investigation into his former national security adviser Mike Flynn,” Washington Post reported.

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.
