What think ye of Macy's New Ad? Should Trump Go?
 
Macy's got a little love from Cher who tweeted her usual hate when she saw Donald Trump in this new Christmas ad:



What think ye of this ad?

For me, it lacks the charm of the ads we see coming out of the UK. But I think Donald Trump is hardly the story in this ad from Macy's.

What do you think of their use of Miracle on 34th Street?

I really like that ad. I thought it was cute. Donald Trump is in it for only a few seconds and he's being Grinchy (as usual) so it's kind of funny.

I'm confused. What did Trump do wrong? He seemed like his usual self.

You may have answered your own qurstion, emski4379.

If Cher's torn up like a can of sauerkraut about that commercial, then I was all for it without even watching it!

After watching it, all I can say is that thank goodness Turner Entertainment wasn't able to get a hold of it and maybe they won't ever!

I looked that one up myself. Trump was very publicly anti-Obama during the campaign (birther controversy, etc.), so many people see his skepticism about Santa Claus in the commercial as a reflection/platform of his political views. There are online petitions with hundreds of thousands of "signatures" demanding that Trump be removed as a Macy's spokesman.

Proving yet once again that all publicity is good publicity.

Thatís true enough! I seldom watch TV and would have probably missed this commercial otherwise. Just think, I have Cher & Jeff to thank!

Iím more disturbed about Jeff being privy to Cherís Tweets! :D

That had better be the first and last time my name is used in the same sentence as Cher!

I like it. I think it's wonderful to see Macy's doing a commercial that promotes Christmas and a good charity instead of pushing sales, products and etc..I love the use of Miracle on 34th street as well, makes me want to watch the movie now, Lol

I was remorseful even as I clicked the send button.
