BREAKING: All Six Major GOP Convention Sponsors DROP OUT In Protest
Many of the major companies that helped fund the 2012 GOP National Convention have declined to sponsor the 2016 event in Cleveland this year.
None of the companies listed above have publicly stated whether or not their decision has to do with Donald Trump’s presumptive status as the party’s presidential nominee. Many have declined to help fund the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia as well, perhaps in an attempt to not make their decisions seem too partisan. Corporations often sponsor party conventions simply to promote their brands rather than make explicit partisan endorsements.
The enormous controversy emerging over Trump’s likely nomination in July does, however, provide a clear risk for many companies, who fear that their association with Trump will be potentially harmful to their brand. A growing amount of pressure has been applied by a variety of activists, who insist that funding the event implies complicity between the brand and Trump’s many racist statements against Latinos and Muslims throughout his campaign.
Well it just is getting worse for this guy. So hated that companies do not want to be associated with him but then again who can blame them. It is going to be so embarrassing for the GOP this November when they are humiliated on the national stage by getting their butts whooped by a woman they hate.

"The question is....will the Republicans throw Trump under the bus to save face and still be a viable political party...barely? "
Oooh I could play that game too, replace Republicans and Trump, with Democrats and HIllary.
NEITHER candidate should be running.
One is a perpetual middle school kid and the other a lying possible criminal.
So just stop.
Stop what? You a mod now?
Except the democrats aren't in meltdown mode over Clinton.

I posted this on a different thread earlier today, but it works just as well for this thread.
I just have to ask, how well do they pay your for your troll services?
Clinton SuperPac Admits to Paying Internet Trolls
Does it pay well enough to justify overlooking your principles and ethics?
Ah, what difference, at this point, does it make?
