Donald Trump Jr. Says Stop Boycotting Bud Light?

Donald Trump Jr. defended Bud Light on his podcast in light of the boycott following the Dylan Mulvaney marketing campaign.

On his latest episode of “Triggered,” Trump Jr. said his team looked into the political lobbying of parent company Anheuser-Busch and found they mostly supported Republicans.

“Last cycle their employees and their PAC gave about 60 percent to Republicans and 40 percent to Democrats,” Trump Jr. said.

“That’s literally almost unheard of in corporate America, where it’s really easy to go woke, where they do so constantly, where there’s a consequence to actually being a conservative. So 60/40 to the conservative side is kind of a big deal.”

Trump Jr. also mentioned that The Daily Wire reports that nobody at the senior level of Anheuser-Busch was aware of the partnership with Dylan Mulvaney.

“That makes sense,” he commented.

He said it may have been the act of a rogue, woke lunatic in a marketing department.

Just the News had more details:

Anheuser-Busch, the parent company of Bud Light, recently took a $6.6 billion loss in market share value after it was revealed they had a partnership with transgender TikTok star Dylan Mulvaney.

Anheuser-Busch CEO Brendan Whitworth issued a statement on Friday that “effectively repudiated the Mulvaney deal, although it did not reference the personality by name,” according to the Washington Times.

“I am responsible for ensuring every consumer feels proud of the beer we brew,” Mr. Whitworth said. “We never intended to be part of a discussion that divides people. We are in the business of bringing people together over a beer.”

Trump Jr. added that there was no way the senior leadership at the company could have been aware of the marketing campaign, and said that they have supported GOP candidates like House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and Ohio GOP Sen. J.D. Vance.

Although Trump Jr. said it’s not worth destroying an American icon, not all conservatives agree with him.

Daily Mail added:

‘On the lobbying front, we looked into the bills that Anheuser-Busch was working on,’ he said.

‘You know what they’re focused on, guys? They’ve focused on taxes and trade things that actually impact their business. They haven’t done any lobbying for like the random pet issues of the day and the nonsense and the BLM crap — I didn’t find that — they focused on the things that affect their job.’

The CEO, Brendan Whitworth, is a former Marine and CIA agent who has been registered as a Republican for most of his adult life.

Trump Jr said he disagreed with boycotting a 170-year-old company for one mistake.

‘So here’s the deal,’ he said.

‘Anheuser-Busch totally s*** the bed with this Dylan Mulvaney thing.

‘I’m not, though, for destroying an American and iconic company for something like this.’

He added: ‘When I actually look into it, I’m not going to blame the whole company for the inaction or the stupidity of someone in a marketing campaign that got woke as hell.

‘The company itself doesn’t participate in the same leftist nonsense as the other big conglomerates.’

WLTReport also noted that Anheuser-Busch CEO Brendan Whitworth is reportedly a former CIA operative.

We'll also take note that Anheuser-Busch (InBev) is a World Economic Forum partner.

Anheuser-Busch InBev is a publicly traded company based in Leuven, Belgium. The company is committed to building great brands that stand the test of time and to brewing the best beers using the finest natural ingredients. Its diverse portfolio of well over 400 beer brands leverages the collective strengths of 200,000 employees in 50 countries. In 2015, on a combined pro forma basis, AB InBev realized $55.5 billion in revenues (excluding joint ventures and associates).
