Start a 'Buy-Cott': Huckabee Blasts Boycott of In-N-Out Over GOP Donation
Mike Huckabee blasted liberals for calling for boycotts of burger chain In-N-Out after it was revealed the company donated $25,000 to the California Republican Party.
Huckabee said In-N-Out, which is based in Los Angeles County, is a "wonderful company" and that the $25,000 is a "very small amount" in the scheme of things.
California Democrat Party head Eric Bauman expressed concern in a tweet noting the donation, which he hashtagged with a call to boycott the chain.
Et tu In-N-Out? Tens of thousands of dollars donated to the California Republican Party... it’s time to #BoycottInNOut - let Trump and his cronies support these creeps... perhaps animal style!https://t.co/9zkdFaG5CJ

Bauman said the public should "let Trump and his cronies support these creeps" instead.
"Why can't a business express itself?" Huckabee said, noting that several companies like Apple, Starbucks and Amazon frequently give to Democrats and liberal causes. Amazon and its founder, Jeffrey Bezos, have recently come under fire from President Trump.
"Don't boycott them, buy-cott them," Huckabee said, calling for people to buy more burgers than they need and give them away, to make the company "more prosperous."
