Easily triggered left-wingers seem to be becoming unglued, as it were, on social media and calling for a boycott in response to a trending tweet featuring a Hobby Lobby store display that reads “USA Vote Trump.”
So far, it has yet to be determined if an employee or just a random customer at the unidentified shop is responsible for the pro-Trump aisle art.
Whether you’re a fan/customer or not of Hobby Lobby or its sometimes controversial business practices, it’s worth noting that the woke crowd seldom has an issue with importing into and insisting upon far-left policies at the workplace.
The image below was reportedly first posted on the Facebook page of the Never Trumper Lincoln Project.

Many liberals still haven’t gotten over the arts & crafts chain’s 2014 U.S. Supreme Court victory that challenged the Obamacare contraception mandate on grounds of religious freedom. They called for a consumer embargo back then as well.
It’s an open question as to whether any of its critics actually ever patronized the store outlets in the first place.
Woke Twitter is nonetheless displeased with the perhaps impromptu show of support for the incumbent POTUS. Here is a selection:
Since Hobby Lobby is trending, never forget they’re they reason your employer can deny your right to medical treatment based on “religious objections”. I have NEVER shopped there. Ever.

Never go. Shop at Lowe’s rather than Home Depot. Don’t go to Chik-Fil-A. This is life and death stuff, folks.

I’ve been boycotting Hobby Lobby since the 2014 SCOTUS case denying women access to birth control

I’ve been boycotting them since the whole family planning/birth control debacle

So, #MAGA logic says it’s fine for Hobby Lobby, as a corporation to support candidates but individual workers at American Airlines can’t wear Black Lives Matter pins? That beyond Citizens United: corporations are people but flight attendants aren’t? https://t.co/N7XBCWMasw

Been boycotting them since long before now. Their support of Trump is just one more reason to never set foot in their stores.

Was aleady boycotting these guys. Now they are double boycotted.

Nobody goes to Hobby Lobby anyways unless they are looking for a “Life. Laugh. Love” sign or decorations to make their house look like a 1950’s gas station. You all can have it.

I cleaned up messes in retail for ten years but I would have no qualms about smashing that entire display in the most accident-looking property-destroying way possible. Bend the shelf hinges on the fixture so the whole 4-way has to go in the dumpster kinda destroy.

Other social media users have vowed to pull a Goya and ring up some purchases at Hobby Lobby, which — it turns out — is open on Labor Day.
I see boycotting hobby lobby is trending simply for supporting the president. Looks like it’s time to do some mega shopping there tomorrow.

LOL you probably set that up but since you did, thanks! I copied the photo and I’m going to send this out to everyone I know. Go ahead and boycott, I’m sure you’ll find all of your sign boards, spray paint and markers elsewhere. This will inspire more to shop there.#HobbyLobby

Can you call it a boycott if you’ve never been there and never would go there in the first place?

And the customer* who did it is having the last laugh as heads explode while it goes viral. https://t.co/6IJ4a5HS7s
