Unanue argued that there was a double standard in people’s reaction to his praise for Trump versus his association with other presidents. He cited his invitation from the former first lady Michelle Obama in 2012 for a Florida event promoting her Let’s Move! healthy-eating initiative.

“Goya is utilizing their incredible reach into communities across the country to get this helpful information to the hand of parents,” Michelle Obama said at the time. “Everything that Goya is doing – from the MiPlato posters and pamphlets to cookbooks and recipes – center around the idea that we parents can make simple changes to help their children lead healthier lives.”



 



The Goya Foods company was also recognized by former president Barack Obama in 2011 “for its continued success and commitment to the Hispanic community, the only company to ever be honored by the President,” according to their site
To be fair, Obama didn't open his campaign by calling Mexicans criminals and rapists, then spend the next 3+ years fighting the legal attempts of Hispanic to claim asylum by committing war crimes or ignoring Puerto Rico's tragedies and letting people die.

It's not that Unanue supported Trump or Obama. It's that Trump is so clearly and obviously racist and has said and done so much to harm the Hispanic population, which as it happens is Goya's customer base. And he chose to heap praise on him.

So it's not exactly the same. It's similar to something like if the CEO of Manischewitz starting heaping praise on Richard Spencer. Sure, some goyim buy their matzo and wine, but the primary market for a Kosher product is people that Spencer thinks are sub-human and wants to wipe off the earth. So it would be a tad tone deaf, like if the Executive Director of GLAAD started praising the CEO of Chik-Fil-A.

Then Trump doubles down by hawking the products with his family...

Of course, some of us deeply oppose racism, corruption and fascism and view any overt support of it as questionable. So we feel fairly strongly that if we can avoid giving our dollars to someone who will turn around and use the profit they make from us to promote and support racism, fascism, and corruption (or "the Trump Administration" for short) we'd rather not help them make money.

It's a single standard: Obama met it, Trump doesn't.

Also, Michelle Obama inviting the CEO of a major food brand that serves much of the Hispanic community to a better eating initiative makes a certain amount of sense, don't you think?

Neither example here is anything close to the full-tongue asskissing with two-handed reach-around that Unanue gave to Trump the other day. And none involved running an infomercial out of the oval office.

If Trump lives another 5yrs (likely only 3 needed), we're going to witness another  bankruptcy.  Guaranteed.  Hopefully, he'll appear in court in prison orange.  Working for Epstein was Ivanka's safety net so who knows what she's going to do.  Jr and Eric and will become hunting tour guides and each be shot by the same disgruntled customer.  Melania will marry Justin Bieber and star in his videos.  Barron will die in a tragic frozen yogurt accident.
