L.L. Bean Targeted by Anti-Trump Group

L.L. Bean Targeted by Anti-Trump Group

LL Bean is an iconic business in New England, in particular, but world-wide. To call for a boycott of the them because of the political preferences of one of the large family members is absurd. LL Bean males no political endorsements. This boycott is doomed to failure. – Shorty Dawkins

UPDATE: Trump Responds

UPDATED: This morning President-elect Donald Trump urged people to support L.L. Bean

Thank you to Linda Bean of L.L.Bean for your great support and courage. People will support you even more now. Buy L.L.Bean. @LBPerfectMain

The anti-Trump group “Grab Your Wallet” has targeted outdoor company L.L. Bean for a boycott because a granddaughter of the L.L. Bean founder donated money to a Trump PAC.

Linda Bean is the granddaughter of founder Leon Leonwood Bean and “owns a chunk” of the company.

She contributed $60,000 to the Making America Great Again LLC, according to the Federal Election Commission. The agency said in a letter dated Jan. 4 that her contribution exceeded the individual donor limit of $5,000, according to the Associated Press.

After news of the donation emerged, anti-Trump group Grab Your Wallet called for a boycott of L.L. Bean’s products. Founded last October, Grab Your Wallet publishes a list of companies and individuals who support Trump and urges consumers to punish them by withholding their cash.

Executive Chairman Shawn Gorman released a statement explaining that the company has many (50+) family members who are partial owners of the company and that one donation from a company owner does not speak for the company as a whole.

  1. This may turn out to be a problem for Beans. Most of the folks in that area are total left wing weirdos and Beans caters to them by providing all kinds of lefty yuppie merchandise. Beans is not the store it was 20 years ago. Maine NH and Vermont have turned into little Massachusettes. Massholes, as I lovingly refer to them, Move up here to NH and make it their own, bringing all the left wing BS that goes with it. They have really destroyed NH. I have lived here all my life and have seen it first hand.
    I do not support a boycotte against Beans for any political purpose, especially from a bunch of anti Trump cry babies. Besides….Their fly fishing shop is top notch.

  2. Bean is Americana baby. We are watching the Left self-destruct before our very eyes people! I’ve never seen any individual, faction or group dig their own graves deeper, faster…more willingly than these people since 11/8! Historical AND hysterical!
