Irvine-based fast-food chain In-N-Out Burger donated $25,000 to the California Republican party this week, and in response, California Democratic Party Chairman, Eric Bauman, is now calling for a boycott of the famous chain.
On Thursday, Bauman tweeted,
“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!”

Washington D.C.-based journalist Gabe Schneider first reported on a public filing on the Secretary of State’s website that showed the famous restaurant chain donated funds to the California Republican Party, and shortly after the hashtag #boycottInNOut was born. #boycottInNOut and #boycottInNOutBurger were both trending on Twitter on Friday.

According to Fortune, In-N-Out have made donations to both parties in the past: Last year, In-N-Out Burger donated $30,000 and $50,000 this year to Californians for Jobs and a Strong Economy–a political action committee that supports business-friendly Democratic candidates.
Antonio Sabato Jr. hit the nail on the head with his tweet on Thursday, calling out the fact that Dems don’t fact check anything and literally let their emotions steer their way through life. The United States House Candidate from California cites the Fortune Magazine story that clearly shows the restaurant chain has given to BOTH parties.
“More of a reason to go and eat a great Burger !! Two please The cult fast food chain In-N-Out is taking sides in this year’s election—or is it? http://fortune.com/2018/08/30/in-n-out-burger-republican-donation/?utm_source=twitter.com&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=social-button-sharing … via
