In today's Boomer news, Republican Strategist Rick Wilson attempted to pwn Domino's pizza today for committing the sin of responding to a Tweet that Donald Trump's Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany made to Domino's.
Rick Wilson, who is a long time Republican strategist and describes himself as an "ad-guy" weighed in on this controversy.
It is weird to me that someone who describes themselves a Republican (presumably a capitalist) would have a hard time understanding that Domino's would like to sell pizza to as many people as possible regardless of their political persuasions because they are a business who sells pizza to people and not say, a political pundit who mocks the base he supposedly represents.
It is also equally weird to me that self-described "ad guy" would not know how earned media works. Believe me, Domino's earned a boatload of it today. And with Twitter being the outrage fest that it is, every media outlet will be plastering the word Domino's on its front page.
It is not surprising however that a boomer would not take the three seconds required to see when a Tweet was written.
Regardless, considering Rick Wilson's affiliations and apparent love of the Confederate flag, he really shouldn't be throwing stones.
GOP strategist Rick Wilson has spent his career helping to elect some of the most pernicious bigots in politics like White Nationalist Kris Kobach . Rick Wilson was also a protege of Lee Atwater the father of the Southern Strategy. He also casually displays the Confederate Flag. pic.twitter.com/oZWhNZVGM8
