Howard Schultz won’t last long in politics. He’s already broken the newly established rule: don’t criticize Donald Trump.
Don’t believe me, just look at the carnage.
16 Republican challengers hurled dirt at Trump. All were left in the dust, except those who decided to work with him.
Next, Hillary Clinton picked a fight with Trump. She and her team, the media, the DNC, RINO Republicans, and the entirety of the Obama administration wanted Trump as her opponent. She got what she wished for, then they started slinging mud at Trump.
Trump was attacked a racist, a xenophobe, a sexist, a misogynist, a philanderer, a misfit, and much more. The assaults were deflected by Trump like shooting rubber bullets at a concrete Southern border wall. That was the beginning of the end of Hillary Clinton, and the Clintons in general.
When the dust settled, Clinton lie in a wasteland. Her political clout vanished, her political career over. The Clinton’s money-pot and racketeering organization, The Clinton Foundation is in shambles.
As for the RINOs, post-election, people like Bill Kristol, George Will, and others prostitute so much in DC these days, it looks like nickel night at the brothel.
Hollywood took a hit, as people like Kathy Griffin, George Lopez, Madonna, Ashley Judd, and many others look for work. Their lives upended by their hatred of Trump.
And what of the media?
Trump declared CNN fake news, and they have taken a massive hit. But they are not alone, as many large print and digital media outlets now lay off hundreds of anti-Trump workers.
Clearly, it’s a bad idea to go against Trump.
Yet, former CEO of Starbucks, Howard Schultz is said to detest Donald Trump. For what? Trump’s overwhelming success?
Truth be told, Schultz is symptomatic of many former Democrats who detest their own party more than they could ever detest Donald Trump. Some voted for Trump, while others like Schultz pretend to need to look elsewhere.
The latter Democrats represent those still butt-hurt over losing. They can’t admit they were wrong about their party, wrong about Trump, and wrong about their vision of America.
In his interview, Schultz commented:
“I respect the Democratic Party. I no longer feel affiliated because I don’t know their views represent the majority of Americans. I don’t think we want a 70 percent income tax in America,” Schultz said in a CNBC interview on Monday. “The way I’ve come to this decision is, I believe that if I ran as a Democrat, I would have to say things that I know in my heart I do not believe, and I would have to be disingenuous.”
Schultz doesn’t respect the Democratic Party. Because if he did, he would run as a Democrat and change the party. That’s what Trump did to the Republicans.
Schultz doesn’t want to put in the work to go against the new Democratic Party, which has been radicalized by people like Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
In an interview on CNBC, Schultz addressed Ocasio-Cortez’s claim that billionaires represented a policy failure and that the U.S. was “immoral” for allowing an economic system that allowed for billionaires to exist.

“It’s so un-American to think that way,” Schultz responded. “I’m self-made. I came from the projects and took advantage of the promise of the country. I’m living proof of the American dream.”
Ocasio-Cortez responded to a criticism of her from former Starbucks’ CEO Howard Schultz on Twitter. In her tweet, Ocasio-Cortez showcase that abject ignorance we’ve come to expect from her.
“Why don’t people ever tell billionaires who want to run for President that they need to ‘work their way up’ or that ‘maybe they should start with city council first’?”

I tweeted to AOC:
LOL. Coming from a Congresswoman who isn’t qualified to be a dog catcher, I’m not surprised at your comment.
What do people who form multi-national companies know, right?#TeamKJ
Talk about the entitled generation.
Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t have the decency to research Howard Schultz before sticking her foot in her mouth.
I’m no political fan of Howard Schultz, but as a businessman he gets my hat-tip.
Business Insider reported:, Schultz’ story is that of Horatio Alger.
Schultz was born on July 19, 1953, in Brooklyn, New York. He grew up poor, and on the other side of the tracks. When Schultz was 7 years old, his father broke his ankle while working as a truck driver picking up and delivering diapers. At the time, his father had no health insurance or worker’s compensation, and the family was destitute.
Schultz worked various low-level, low-paying menial jobs. His first break came when he landed a sales role at Xerox. My brother was an executive at Xerox, so I know first-hand the training that company gave its employees. So, by the time Schultz left Xerox, he was honed for business.
Schultz left Xerox and joined a housewares company called Hammarplast. Over the years, he worked his way up to vice president. However, while working at Hammarplast, Schultz discovered Starbucks. He was so enthralled with the company, he would join the company as their director of retail operations and marketing. The same drive and determination that made Schultz a success at Xerox and Hammarplast drove him to success at Starbucks.
A few years later, Schultz bought Starbucks. From nothing, Schultz became a self-made billionaire. No sleeping his way to the top like Kamala Harris, and certainly no nepotism or “know who”. Just hard work and perseverance.
Social media destroyed Ocasio-Cortez:
Chick who went from bartender to Congress and voice of the New Democrat party in months thinks people need to “work their way up”.

Her generation hasn’t worked for much, as things have been handed to them, for the most part.
They don’t care about history, because it requires work to go back and understand how we got to where we are. It is this lack of respect for learning and toiling by Millennials and other youngsters that should concern Americans.
