Twitter’s army of far-left zealots is exploding in anger over reports that the nation’s largest supermarket, Kroger, has tapped Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s highly credentialed wife to serve on its board of directors.
Elaine Chao, McConnell’s spouse of 23 years, also served as Secretary of Transportation throughout former President Donald Trump’s four years in office.
Combined, her relationship with McConnell and her position in the Trump administration have made her public enemy number one to the left.
But apparently unbeknownst to these bellyachers is that Kroger CEO and chairman Rodney McMullen is a Trump ally who’s unlikely to bend the knee to the mob.
Kroger announced Chao’s election to its Board of Directors in a press release issued Monday.

In the release, McMullen himself beamed with excitement over her being recruited.
“We are pleased to welcome Elaine to Kroger. She’s an experienced national and global leader who brings to Kroger’s board deep knowledge of corporate governance, strategic and workforce management, and public-private partnerships as well as extensive experience at the highest levels of U.S. government,” he said.
Indeed, when it comes to business, she knows her craft well.
“She obtained her Master of Business Administration from Harvard Business School after receiving her undergraduate degree in Economics from Mount Holyoke College. Recognized for her extensive record of accomplishments and public service, she is also the recipient of 37 honorary doctorate degrees,” the press release noted.
But her business acumen doesn’t matter to her haters. To them, the fact that she worked with the Trump administration is all they need to know.
I want nothing to do with anything associated with Elaine Chao, or Mitch McConnell for that matter. 👋

Who else is staying far away from Kroger, Fred Meyer, and any of their other stores since they’ve added corrupt Elaine Chao to the board?✋#BoycottKroger

Some might argue that the latter tweet was kind of racist …
As of around 10:00 am Thursday morning, about 30,000 people were tweeting the hashtag. It’s presumed at least a couple hundred (if not thousands) of them were conservatives mocking and calling out the left for their bellyaching and hypocrisy.
Case in point:
Elaine Chow, a minority woman has a groovy new job. The liberals who claim to support minority women are doing everything they can to get her fired.
Liberal Democrat hypocrisy run amok…open your eyes people, Democrats are the real party of hate.

This is one of those situations where liberals preach about how kind and compassionate they are…or how they support minority women unless of course the minority woman is a conservative…then screw them right? #BoycottKroger

I’m buying Kroger stock today. Last time the liberals boycotted Goya Foods the company sales went through the roof. Stupid liberals. #boycottkroger

The latter Twitter user wasn’t wrong about Goya Foods. Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s boycott against the Hispanic-owned food company resulted in so many sales for the company that it named her the “Employee of the Month” in late 2020.
Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue is also a Trump ally — one who made it clear that he wouldn’t be bullied into submission by left-wing zealots after they began making a fuss over him praising then-President Trump.
Like Unanue, McMullen, the CEO and chairman of Kroger, also has a history of praising the former president.
In fact, right after Trump won the election in November of 2016, he said he was EXCITED about the incoming Trump presidency.
“We look forward to working with the administration and getting the growth again and more jobs started, so it’s exciting,” he said during an appearance on CNBC.
Then after Trump took office, he eagerly joined the then-president’s Great American Economic Revival advisory groups.
While it’s unclear how he’ll respond to the boycott against Kroger, if he’s anything like Unanue, he’ll tell the bellyaching leftists to go to hell.
