They just don't know how to do it.

Keurig pulled advertising from Hannity's show because of his support for middle school dating enthusiast Roy "F the Constitution!" Moore.

Angry supporters are now smashing the machines that they ALREADY OWN. That'll show 'em!

Plus, Hannity adds:

"Deplorable friends, I am buying 500 coffee makers tomorrow to give away!!"

Way to go!

Five'll get you ten that most of these guys will be out buying new machines on Black Friday. If they don't get maced.

Destroying property that you have already paid for doesn't accomplish anything. The person doing the destroying has to buy a new whatever and the company they are protesting is unaffected at all.

Some ass on Twitter was trying to explain that doing this spreads the word of the boycott, but I've never seen these sorts of activities accomplish anything. Ask John Lennon how badly burning Beatles records affected his bottom line. :-)

Yes, but Shame Hannity got in two commercial breaks during those 15 minutes, probably so he could tell the judge he was confessing to dating high school girls and he might want to lie about that after the first break. This guy is too stupid to be in the senate which means he will be the perfect senator to represent Alabama.

Even better, let them know that K-Cups are bad for the environment, so they are becoming more 'green' like a tree-hugger!

HAHA!

Funniest Headline:

"Mitch McConnell vs. Roy Moore is now a battle for the soul of the GOP"
-WaPo

They are playing for pretty small stakes there.

At least it wasn't the heart and soul which would have made the stakes even smaller.

Looks like they're going to need to get their Volvo's crushed now too.

Volvo has pulled its advertisements from Sean Hannity’s show on Fox News after his coverage of sexual misconduct allegations made against Roy Moore.

We have spoken with our media agency and have advised them to cease advertising on the show.

Followup:

After pulling advertising from Hannity's show, Keurig CEO is not happy that his social media team advertised the fact.

So what was the point, then?
