I'm not sure if this is Political Madness or just Madness.

Trump supporters launch #TrumpCup as a protest against Starbucks

The protest is an attempt to make Starbucks baristas yell Donald J. Trump's name and write it on their coffee cups.


If that wasn't weird enough, Yahoo News posted the article with:


Donald J. Trump supporters... protest Starbucks by giving them money.


Which is pretty funny, if you ask me.

But wait, there's more.

Starbucks calls cops after customer requests 'Trump' name on cup

A... video shows... Starbucks employees refusing to write the name “Trump” on a cup for a paying customer.
The employees then called police on the man for requesting the writing.


And finally...

Starbucks breaks and adds "Trumpfee" to their menu

Powerful social media action #TrumpCup has led to Starbucks officially adding new beverage to their menu. 'Trumpfee', as it was named, is based on a new recipe which derives completely from coffee beans grown exclusively within continental USA. In addition to that, each customer who orders Trumpfee will have 'Trump' written on his/her cup without even asking.
From now on you will not only be able to enjoy your #TrumpCup of Trumpfee, but also support our American coffee growing industry. As you know, american coffee beans are the best in the world.


First, it must be a slow news day.

Second, if I'm behind someone that wants Trump on their cup and they aren't actually Donald Trump, I'm going to say that my name is Lucifer, or Batman, or something. Just for sh!ts and grins.

Three, the police have much better things to do than get a call because a 'barista' didn't like what somebody said their name was for an overly expensive cup of crappy coffee.

Four, can't stop shaking my head.

Five, can't figure out which side was more stupid.

Seven, new phrase I will enjoy using for the next 4 years is: The Trumpstappo

Eight, if you realized I skipped Six, you have too much time on your hands or OCD

Nine, yeah, all this over a crappy cup of coffee

Pretty soon those folks will have Giant size pictures of Our Great Leader on the sides of their homes, and everywhere else.

Thank God it seems to be dying out, save for isolated outbreaks of idiocy such as this.

Either that, or I'm immune now, and just don't notice it anymore...

do grown adults actually ask to have a name put on their coffee cup?
are these real cups or are they those disposable cups?

if you`re an adult and you need to have a name on your disposable coffee cup there is something seriously wrong with you.

Have you never been to a Starbucks? It and many other similarly styled cafes write your name (although, usually your first name) on the cup and when you order and then the person who actually made the drink (usually a different person, but not always) calls the name on the cup when it's ready for you to pick up.

Your comment suggests you are completely unfamiliar with this... Because adults in many places throughout the world do this on a daily basis.

EDIT: for clarification...the employee ask the customer for the customer's name. And if you refuse to say your name (or a least a name), the employee will probably make up something snarky to shame you or piss you off.

Clever marketing by Stabucks. Instead of continuing a stooshie in the media they capitalise on a Trump movement and give the supporters their very own coffee named after Trump, complete with Trump written on the cup, whilst adding to their reputation for supporting the American coffee growers. Creating that silver lining to the cloud is pure genius especially as the news media has the company in the spotlight over the original stooshie thus giving lots of free publicity especially now that Starbucks has turned the tables to give a positive outcome.

You forgot #10, where there's now going to be droves of us citizens refusing to support the usa coffee industry by refusing to order the new menu item based on its name alone.

And that, to me, is Hillaryus.

That was a excellent Original Post and highlights the absurdity of our current political environment.

It will also compel me to have the people at Starbucks write Hugh Jazz on my coffee.
