The futility of boycotts: Will Donald Trump really stop drinking Diet Coke? Does it matter?

0


“I have never seen a thin person drinking Diet Coke,” Donald Trump tweeted back in 2012. He followed up a week later: “Let’s face it — this stuff just doesn’t work. It makes you hungry.” 

Not that this has ever stopped him from drinking oceans of it. Trump likes Diet Coke so much that when he was president, he’d push a red button on a box on his desk, and an aide would appear with a glass on a silver tray. Thank God it was the only red button he pushed. 

The addiction hasn’t gone away. What appears to be a bottle of the stuff was seen on his desk in Mar-a-Lago on Monday — despite his calls for a boycott of the soft-drink giant and other companies for their criticism of Georgia’s new voting law. Critics claim the law is designed to disenfranchise Black voters in the Peach State.
