McDonalds Tweets Trump: "You Are A Disgusting Excuse Of A President, Also You Have Tiny Hands"

Tyler Durden's picture

Update: It appears McDonalds needed Twitter to tell Robert Gibbs and the company's Corporate relations team that their account had been "compromised."

And so, as MCD has washed its hands of the rogue tweet and blamed "compromising" actors, the company has generated substantial media buzz... the only question is whether the buzz will lead to more or less sales.

*  *  *

 

One day after Twitter stock tumbled after a pervasive hack showed just how vulnerable the underperforming social network (where 15% of total users appear to be bots) remains, moments ago McDonalds tweeted to president Trump, in what appears to be the latest hack of a prominent account, that "You are actually a disgusting excuse of a President and we would love to have @BarackObama back, also you have tiny hands."

The confrontational tweet was even pinned for a moment:

We assume, of course, that this is a hack. If not, the media is about to have a field day with the latest member of the "resistance."

Of course, it could have been just a rogue employee who is about to join the "unemployed resistance."

It is worth noting that Trump was once in a commercial for the fast food giant, and has posted images eating McDonald's food on his social media accounts during his campaign.

Of course, it may not have been a "rogue employee" at all: former Obama press secretary Robert Gibbs is now the executive vice president and global chief communications officer at McDonald's. To wit:

June 09, 2015 McDonald’s Corporation today announced the appointments of Robert Gibbs as Executive Vice President, Global Chief Communications Officer and Silvia Lagnado as Executive Vice President, Global Chief Marketing Officer. Both will report to McDonald’s President and CEO Steve Easterbrook.

 

In his new role, Gibbs will lead McDonald’s corporate relations group, which manages internal and external communications and government and public affairs. He will lead McDonald’s in communicating clear, coordinated messages to internal and external constituencies, enhancing the brand and supporting corporate strategies. 

 

Gibbs joins McDonald’s from The Incite Agency, a strategic communications advisory firm he co-founded in 2013. Prior to that he held several senior advisory roles in the White House, serving as President Barack Obama’s press secretary during his first term, then as senior campaign advisor during his re-election campaign.

Which means he also has access to the company's twitter account...

Update: the tweet has since been deleted although it does not appear that McDonalds was actually hacked as the account continues its back and forth with other customers in a far more calm and collected manner.

Fits well with everything else that comes out of this disgusting excuse of a food chain.

Interesting as McDonald's got an exemption to avoid the ACA requirements that would of given its employees heath-care coverage. I wonder if the employees feel the same way?

... I heard they're dropping "Donald" off their corporate logo and opted for "McDodo" ... on their way to extinction ...

Will TRUMP BUILD-A-WALL Around Every MkDonalds ???

Well, the good news is that nobody with a brain eats anything at McD’s anymoar.

So, the only people left there are, by definition brainless.

My sources ( Mr BigMac and Mr Cheeseburger) just told me that the hackers have been already identified as being Russians acting on direct order from Putin himself. the sources further stated, that Putin just wanted to transmit to the Donald a more balanced assessment of POTUS. Mr Putin just got tired of all the Trump-Putin-best buddies nonsense.

"Tiny hands"?

Does Jimmy Dore work for McDs?

Sounds like somethin' pissed-off and unemployed Grimace might say.... that hypocrite has tiny hands, too.

Sounds more like a cheap (free) advertising attempt to me. Ooops, we are hacked. Yeah, rite.

This from a Corporation that refers to their customers as Users.

No joke.

They should be in my book. First went to their restaurant in '62. Regular burger was a treat. Today it tastes like a hockey puck. Garbage. However, bet their food cost % is down. Ray Croc would be sick about it if he was alive. But hey, their stock is up. Lost focus, lost purpose. Enjoy your crappy salads, or whatever.

A huge contributor to the nationwide obesity, hypertension and diabetes epidemic speaks about "disgusting".

How appropriate in these most politically correct times that we live in!

the Hamburglar was the one to tapped Trump's phone!

MsCreant's picture

Mayor McGovernmentCheese ordered the hack, though. You know I'm right. Hamburglar was just a soldier, "serving" the bergers.

Stop spreading fake news already! Mr Putin himself did the tweeting, using the C!A's now readily available backdoor to MCdonald's TWTR account, courtesy of #vault7.

Mayor McCheese is a compromised pawn of the Khazar Neozionists. He does what he's told.

I came across a "little known fact" somewhere in the vast Internets. "McD actually loses money on the burgers, yet still makes a killing on the expensive fries that people "need" with the burgers."

I haven't eaten there in over ten years, because it's just not real food. Who knows what it is?

Human DNA has been found in McDonalds meat.

KFC deep fried rats.

Why is anyone eating this?

It's called junk food, but it's worse than that.

flapdoodle's picture

McDonalds has coldly calculated that in order to increase sales, they need to cultivate the lower IQ portions of the human genome pool and what better way than to create some fake solidarity with Hillary voters who might show their agreement by buying whatever it is that McDonalds sells (its not really FOOD now, is it? maybe FAKE FOOD for FAKE NEWS fans)

Look at every McDonalds commercials, they are actively targeting one group, wonder why?

hedgeless_horseman's picture

 

they are actively targeting one group

Why?

Because they be keeping the black man down!

When others do for us what we can and should do for ourselves...

True dat.

Like LBJ allegedly said,

"We'll have them niggers eating corporate crap for 200 years."

The only white people in commercials are fags or vampy whores like Katie Perry in make up commercials.
