Shame… American Express Refuses To Pull Funding From ‘Trump Assassination’ Play

by
June 13, 2017

American-Express-tweetAmerican Express is trying to have it both ways: Not offending liberal customers who see no problem with the content of a New York City play depicting the assassination of President Trump, while also attempting to claim its dollars aren’t going to support it.

On Monday, the company followed Delta and Bank of America in expressing its discomfort with the play by the NYC Public Theater.

“We would like to clarify that our sponsorship of the Public Theater does not fund the production of Shakespeare in the Park nor do we condone the interpretation of the Julius Caesar play,” the company tweeted.

That’s only slightly disingenuous, because, as anyone with common sense knows, once the funds go into the Public Theater’s coffers, they mix together and can be used to fund any production.

  • American Express doesn’t seem to be very American do they? As far as I’m concerned American Express, as well as Delta and Bank of America don’t deserve support from the American people who respect our endemic and ethos. This play represents a pernicious group in America’s undercurrent of political violence.

    I SAY BOYCOTT THIS COMPANY AND PICK ANOTHER, WE DO NOT NEED ANYONE TRYING TO TEAR OUR COUNTRY UP.

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, A KOREAN WAR VET, AND A CHRISTIAN. I AM AN AMERICAN AND PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND HAVE NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON TO BE PRESIDENT.

    TRUMP IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE USA AND CAN DE-CLASSIFY ANYTHING HE WANTS TO REGARDING GET THE JOB DONE. HE NEEDS TO FIRE EVERYONE CONNECTED TO THE DEMOCRATS AND REALLY INVESTIGATE THE REAL MUSLIM PROBLEM WE ARE FACING.

    5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON, A MINIMUM OF 31 MORE CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES, AND A FEMA CAMP, (SOME STATES MORE), IN EVERY STATE. BUILT WITH TAX PAYER $. TO HOUSE MUSLIMS???

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED.

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE. IF THE CAMPS IN N. VA. ARE TO TAKE DC. WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA ALONG WITH HILLIARY AND THE NEWS MEDIA, HAVE SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    WHY ARE ALL MUSLIM CAMPS CLOSE TO OUR MILITARY BASES?

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    THIS COUNTRY HAD BETTER WAKE UP QUICK.

    “The production’s other sponsor, the New York Times, has been silent on the issue.”
    No surprise there. The NYT and their fake news sucked yesterday. They suck today. And they will suck tomorrow.

  • NovelDog says:

    No more American Express!

  • Bob says:

    Would they have pulled funding if any other President or politician had been the target of the assassination? Would they have pulled funding had this been Obama? Michelle? Schumer? You can believe that check point would be closed tighter than a liberals mind.
    Any one who has an AMEX should shred it and send the pieces back to their corporate offices.

      Amen Bob.

  • Josh says:

    During family dinner, we all agreed to stop doing business with American Express. Even women, all agreed that this so called play was way over the line.

    1. NovelDog says:

      Good for you guys Josh.

    As a Conservative…I am fed up with any corporation that will support one sided politics…accepting my dollars!
    Its time for all Conservatives to play the same Hardball that Liberals have played for years vilifing Conservatives…

    Back in the 70’s American Express was making car loans to illegal aliens charging as much a 3% per month. The illegals most of could not speak or read English had no clue they were being defrauded. At the time I was a first year law student. I was asked by one of the illegals to help him understand why he had made his payments on time for the four year term of the loan and yet American Express had informed him he had only been making interest payments and still owed the entire cost of the new truck. One letter and a phone conversation with their General Counsel and the pink slips were mailed to the many victims I quickly became aware of. For this reason I have never done business with Amex and this latest betrayal of the American people and our President is just another reason to say no to this anti American corrupt business.

      Thanks for sharing PB.

  • peter Pirzadeh says:

    That is exactly what Amex is doing; playing it both ways!!!Apparently a company who has unanbashedly joined others who continue their immorality by supporting the play. May be when they sense the backlash from their cardholders they’ll think twice about a stupid decision they’ve made not to publically criticize the show and, particularly its producers.
