Someone to take out their concern with his policies. Any family member her case. Is just is not except when the president has every right as a father to stand up for them. That guy's got the worst job on earth. Think I just I actually. I actually watched that yesterday because I wish I do you have time I just wanna watch him. Can't sand lively every day it's a terrible show it but I always I need Melissa McCarthy and Micah. Picture in picture. Doing it delayed version of Spicer Wallace vices doings Verizon. He's so good about spice of that I noticed right off the bat which actually was shocking to me that had been rectified and then they played out so well that skit. He is always wearing a suit that does not fit him very well you know he's not he's not pulled together very well. Sent right off the top and you know president trump being pretty particular about that and the president always is perfect. It really was hard for me to believe it and they picked up an animal at Saturday and let's get would you reserve riots highs away on this week I'm sure that we don't and it has to be about Norris right. But having I gotta tell you yesterday I watched him. His suit was very. Nicely pulled down and he was looking much better. Our president drug called out orchards of course our Twitter yesterday after he decided they decided that they were gonna drop a bachus clothing line. The tweet and I will read it to you my daughter vodka has been treated so unfairly by at Nordstrom's. She's a great person always pushing me to do the right thing terrible. Others are Nordstrom says quote. To reiterate what we've Marty shared when asked we made this decision based on performance. Over the past year and particularly in the last Africa when he sixteen sales of the brand of steadily declined. To the point where it didn't make good business sense for us to continue with the line from we've got a great relationship with the vodka trumped team. We've been open conversations around them over the past year this year we've seen in the vocalists personally informed of our decision in early January and. OK so. Many people tried to say this was. Politically motivated. That they did not agree with the president's travel ban and DOS they're pulling her lying. But the fact is. She was notified in early January before. Donald Trump was president trump. It had nothing to do what the travel ban. It had nothing to do. With those politics now was slumping sales because of politics. I don't know. I don't know the answer to that Nordstrom's doesn't know the answer to that. Isn't Nordstrom Waltz what exactly. Is that Nordstrom's all the answer is no. My question to our audience to UVB to every one is. Is this a conflict of interest to win the president goes out though and who goes after a company for a business decision. And effects that company stock. And effects that company. Earned. And does it bother you that he's doing best there is doesn't bother me that much because. Let's see what happens with this stuff. I feel like in the moment ever made in such a huge deal out of this and oh my god it's un presidential it's unbecoming as a word I'm hearing now it. But let's see what the ramifications are now to want trump to audit Nordstrom's or to regional levied taxes on goods they import no. But. It's just as I didn't mind when he tweet it out about lean to being up in Maine because she was taken some crap and eighties today supporter. I'll beans are great companies that bottoming out much. This also does among because I feel like in the end. Either Norstrom is a good company and either no means is a good company and on people he's gonna go there in the long run or they're not whatever the short term dust up is. Business is business and most of us get that. I'm not gonna buy a new balance LL bean Nordstrom's because they like under armour is another one it's come up. Because they like or dislike trump I'm gonna buy them because. I don't care what they sure did the CEO of the shirt I'm wearing thinks of trump I like to sheer movement. I think Dexter would Nordstrom through full disclosure ransom and in my tournament works at Nordstrom. Whenever I'm not Kerry and Nordstrom's or I don't that matter but just tell. Nordstrom will either be fine they won't be fine regardless of trump. In a way this is probably good for Nordstrom business wise is my guess but I don't think they did. I do think they just did this as a business and if Novartis drug stuff was lineup the shelves they would not of. Correct. Okay. Let me tell you and I think about this I think this is a conflict of interests I don't think it's not the coming out of all of that that you know that's all Salinas. Whistle stop talking about anybody being the calming their presidential he is the president. And what he does is now presidential because that's what our president is doing but problem with this is this. You may not be affected by this Phoebe. But as we well know and there are people who are listening right now and I invite you to cull Lynn because I want to talk to you about this. Korb Donald Trump supporters. Who feel so strongly about him that because they believe that this they're buying into the idea that the act. This is politically motivated they are not going to shop at Nordstrom's. And that's a conflict of interest. And that's a problem. And this is where the president is gonna get into some very murky territory. He has said he is gonna stay away from the businesses he is sad that that he is not going to influence one way or the other. But he is influencing because he is the president. And that's a problem because people do what he says and believe in what he cents. And if he says that they are unfair. And that their politically motivated in their decision making units against him. It will have an effect on their business and today it's Nordstrom's and tomorrow who knows what might. On site 2666868. X 8680 is text line. It might only be a company related to a Monica because that is the Achilles heel here we all know that. That's the one where he will not stand by. LL beanie could've waited are not new balance he could weigh in or not he could rip on Iran armory if you want to but you'll notice he hasn't. You could rip stuff curry I mean I should say stuff curry ripped on their armor even though there is he's their top client. Because the under armour CEOs pro trump. But he probably won't but when you got to a vodka. I will not that I will not stand by I will not be silenced the quote Elizabeth Warren he can't. It's just aged ten not. Allowed that he cannot not lash back because she's the prized possession she's the she's a darling she's a sweetheart. And so he can't be silent but. What's the up whats the outcome of all this like what if you're up in arms about it in people's early need to be a duel of the fox had lyme clothing line in the sand. Both finance and I thought that was pretty good Dell's is at Rock the Vote was another one I saw. Pom. But I don't know I I don't bowl I don't feel like dizzy trump army that is now gonna put Nordstrom's out of business an idea that would be dangerous for the country and for. Democracy if that type the stuff is going on. I'm not to have worked up about a president given an opinion even on something like this although it skirts a little closer to come. We have I I just feel like you just see you get really hit you get way too close to conflict here and business man. This is what I don't understand I mean he knows business decisions have to be made and you want. Well certain whether. The the issue with her lying in the store is politically motivated or not. Nordstrom's is making a business decision and I do believe that because like you said. Carrying that line for a long time. If if that was flying off their shelves. Okay are they are in it to make money as is Donald Trump. It a lot of his businesses I just don't think. I just don't think that he wouldn't care he would make a decision based on profits and so it's hard for me to believe he's doing. What would you Nordstrom's through 97 aids is Nordstrom's on a list of companies called vote your wallet where people in the laughter boycotting them because of anything having to do with trump. What would you have Nordstrom's dude just eat this for eight years they can't do that anybody just the way who has you know. Who has dealings with with them. I mean they have to look at their bottom line this is a direct attack. On his policies. And hurt hurt me as it in and so that that there's clearly an attempt. For him to stand up for her because she's being maligned because they have a problem with its policies. I don't I think that's completely true. I think if crawl a problem with the bottom line. Six of seven companies shouldn't project their political views in this climate I've boycotted me to Starbucks Kellogg's Budweiser Nike amount Nordstrom's. Companies shouldn't express their views but you're certainly there are why you did furious star barks like. Maybe we asked the question as a follow up a what do you make of this disease Nordstrom's or file will be. Have you ever boycotted a company. Because of their political views I never. See I know you haven't and that's it but I think a lot of people do and that's why I think this is a problem that's what I'm saying I think this is a probable. But the president is doing this I mean he's a guy who understands this is he's a pro business president. And by doing this he's hurting the business a very large business another Texas seven anyone's is known who voted for trump is ever step foot inside and that's true folks the line well I've done bow. Some eyebrows drawn plan and I think the pants I'm wearing ear from part and parcel of what stays in Braintree this morning hey good morning Steve. They'd in my I love it you're one very one sided view on this so it's not okay for the president to speak out to defendant daughter and by the way she of the woman. And they missed the other pilot tree Yuri says who is always given me the best advice so he has a woman was sort of guiding him in giving him advice is what he admits in the week. And you want to boycott or because or last name happens to be trot but you don't have a problem with the other side which is some group yet it is starting eight cash to egg. What would your wallet. And try to destroy business because they don't agree. With the political views of her father like if you gonna complain about one side you gotta complain of all ball that it is a bit of business this way. Now women as I I didn't say you let me say that. Yeah they say that its president shouldn't come out because he's hurting business yeah. Yeah I think he should hear what we do is it would be easy we did anyway it went belatedly particularly. Politically not because Nordstrom. I sweatshop close because they hurt animals or anything like that that it is not a political decision it's like human rights of its civil rights reason this is it. Political decision they don't like the name trump and these two people create a web site and it's gone viral wit. Don't know that steel they say that they're not so on the close. That's why they've sold do you know that years and c'mon let's predict how do you know how do you know that in the last year. In the last year. That they now now maybe people are buying it for political reasons but that's nothing to do with the with our Nordstrom's. You've they've got on the Iraq thing by about a closed go there and say you know what I don't like her dad will just somebody who said I'm not going in there again because of it. Oh yeah I think if there's a partial sample site. Is that all leave the argument for Euro is. Do you honestly think Nordstrom is looking at their bottom line go on while this is sell like hot cakes for we got to yank it because it says Tron. Are they don't beat it to retail they don't make decisions like that over the course that once that they make it all we is able lion. When it's not successful for a long time because everything to meet you look up and down like a Yo-Yo depending on the season there's no way that this didn't you. That the company is listed. On the hashed and web site Nordstrom right don't want to shopping gets under Robert don't shop there it has nothing to do except put the name trough. If it's set in with him out is that erected about defended its. Daughter what you longer term we didn't masked. I want the field nor sensible approach compensate. I offer clothing lines I offer good service if you wanna shop in our stores in support the people that work here. We give political views of the door I provide you clothing insert. I will not be cowed by groups on the right for the left under seal accompanied I'm not gonna pull a clothing line because you know people have decided the boycott my company if you want to call to come my store you don't stay home. You know what he's not saying that Stevie and save the day the overall bottom line was down people shall stop the shopping in the store they're not buying her lying. I don't think it lines in and out of favor. Yvonne could prompt to get off the list I guarantee they'll be off the list you get a week or so Norton would be off ash did what would your wallet with. You know anybody can. What's at some point those Steve don't you see where if someone is killing you. You do have to react like you can't just say. All because you carry this line before the election you now have to carry it forever like if things change. Regardless of whether you're in love with the is this hash tag movement or not and I'm certainly not obviously. In reality maybe that we do we want you to our. Q if you don't IE what is your choice to. Yeah it's not a good position to beat and I grant you stick do you remember how people drop and look at how about beat the fact that people remember they dropped Kathie Lee's line because. They they couldn't keep it distorts 'cause people wouldn't buy it because she was doing sweatshops things she would sweatshops that's a social justice issue with different to didn't even care about the social justice issues they dropped it because nobody would why it. It's a business decision popular to carry something that still made and it will age you may be Nordstrom's is finding it's unpopular to carry something it has a name trump on it. Because while Bill Clinton delegate because he's part if I personally don't like it as a while on the election because he can he can file the political correctness and said. Don't get into these people stand up take the stand and put them in their place he won an election based on this and company. So which you're asking Nordstrom's to do is to make it political you're asking that it's not here to come out make it political he's saying this is based on lab on a business decision not a political decision. They did not political by coming out and saying I don't wanna be I don't care if my companies at a million web site I know what you're trying to get me to do and we're not gonna do it. You can boycott it put me on a social media site all you'll like my company carried the large retired before the election it's gonna carry a widely carried out for the election. If you don't wanna buy them you welcome in my store purchase whatever you like but you boycott the ridiculous. Up to Steve by coming out and saying that he that means he's taking a political stand his political stand is with Donald Trump he's taking a business stand which is. I'm not selling this product. Just like what we said you know Martha Stewart stuff same thing she went to jail all these places they dropped they dropped it because people didn't want a Baidu anymore. They'd they made that decision and so business decisions were made it's the exact same thing let's go to Joseph in Boston. Jill good morning. And I think trump have to play an apparent that the liberal or against him in the media are kept from Pete doesn't control the narrative. The liberals from the left who consider trove there're we've been here two years. Our global warm and settled by. We all grew on me and with the pianist was a man and when he was. Regina with a woman in their control it now looks kind of forward if something well you know it's unbelievable how much how. That left out by control immediately definitional work. All earlier this strikes you tell me Joseph and Steve to Wear light so if this is the game and now these two women as it's been told you know can shut down. Clothing lines then it's your job to fight back so the right is gonna have to now do a. There were only gonna shop at LL being an analog beings numbers. I mean is this the world we're going to be in where you know rubio at this thing about after Elizabeth Warren's car phone from him at some point. We've got to get off of this in society where you're either with us or you're against us in we're gonna rip you for ever when I assault I think. Where we can't even decide whether or not we can going to Nordstrom's. Based on the fact that one of the thousands. Of people littered with hundreds of design is that they carry is named a pocket trump. We we used to have problems and if you're. If you're acting like. I won't go to Starbucks because they add that pro refugee. Tweaked it went out there that would which is totally silly obvious ignorance if you won't go to chick filet because they don't open. Does any religious is a comes only chick play all day in six weight days on Sunday if it's left over from Saturday. Check police philosophy doesn't affect me in any way all want as a chicken and we're pretty sure I just wanna pair yeah I don't care and me and my but my big issue here is that people who are you meet people who. Our Donald props reporters are immediately saying that they did this be for political reasons I. I believe that people stopped buying the line it last year or they saw a decline in the line that they've been politically motivated. I think Nordstrom's is making decisions based. On business so what did you might say to you what would you have Nordstrom's do. If you have a line in your store and keep in mind at Nordstrom's if you've ever been in one. They only care so many lines and it takes up so much space which is costing them money. That line is not moving to what would you have them do so. These are two back to back attacks and attacks on 60s67. Some more than you'd feel differently if there were left wing activist pushing a boycotted your show. Followed by 843 this morning show was a liberal show. So why left wing activist boy caught our show or a liberal show and how we liberal show with where. Sort of pro business first call. I'm all I'm Donald Trump as you well know I taking Odierno Estrada's as a business I'm saying you don't you you. You gotta look at this from the business point of view in and it's why I'm so that the bodies line the guy it's. Parcells is Ira Glass and why his products are made in Indonesia in China and has needs and told the isn't the reason why he imported that Chinese steel was because there was so much cheaper. So he's a bottom line guy. Who is now ripping a company which you could argue the question what do you believe it or not that they're making a bottom line decision. If you don't believe that. Then that's the end of the discussion okay Nordstrom's is a totally political animal. And they've gone and done a crazy leftist thing. They've hold you however that they have talked to a market consistently. Over the last year about the line. If a bucket comes out to audiences that's absolutely not true I've never spoken to them I'm stunned by this okay. Otherwise I take Nordstrom's at face value look we've Benin conversations with her about. How do we get this going what do we got to do we've where we position it in these in the stores how to week. Market is such that we get your sales line back up because we want this to succeed if those conversations have happened. Then how can you rip nor China have we ever known Nordstrom's to be a politically motivated altitude time heart aren't store ever but it's new it's a new round. I mean all all bets are off. 61726668668680. Is attacks like any carbonite standing deal case or Nordstrom is a business decision TJ Maxx his wife. Mr. gonna carry that close does not advertise or model them how is that not political. Again. Which is what we're just talking about the break advertise in the close within the story is the make or break. It took him trying to tell me if you users not ignored their arms you can say that all you want but that's not the case in Nordstrom's it may be in TJ Maxx for sure. But it's not ignored strategic Max and marshalls for example. I don't believe they advertise every line they carry no they don't there are some that are given preference. Under normal circumstances. Which you wouldn't question it all is the ones that are given preference are the ones that are selling. So there's an order and if you're in the top five we're gonna really promote his disease is what the people want so evocative line is outside of that order. They may decide to make it change I don't. It also may be political in that they just don't want people picketing and I'm not that they're great mr. but they don't want people picketing the store but. There does comic to see this is what there's a good Ted there's an interest there's two interest and tax one on 603 after atomic can't stand listening to you too. Clarifies 603 my guess is those times are when anything is said that questions from in any way she performed. But I think you lead to would you there's another text that comes on from 97 anyone that says this is thing about call tests. When you talk about their leader regardless of what their leaders Don and their objective adulation you're dead to them. And I think there's in through that how is it that we can't even have a conversation. About whether this is a business is vision without us being the great thing. I don't know you can't possibly know whether Nordstrom's is selling any of these calls are not all the you're telling me actually that they all. And Nordstrom's is telling user knocked remember to public. It's a puck which a company traded company is now got third party last year. My guess is they care more about the bottom line and anything in their bottom line Edmund gray over the last twelve months. So my guess is they wouldn't do something that hurts the bottom line to make a political statement. While their bottom line is tanking that's my guest. You can tell me otherwise but. I think. What's particularly interesting to me about this topic is so if you're going forward now let's say your JC Penney for example. JC Penney is a struggling clothing out right carrier yes. JC Penney could easily say screw it. We're gonna be the all trumps the war. We want to vodka we're gonna splash of vodka we wanted to carve out a niche that says. Anyone that wants to promote trump we wanna carry their products. Now JC Penney couldn't do that in action they very well may I don't know. In fine I might shop at JC Penney then as a result because I've duel like under armour for example I don't I don't Wear a point is stuff it's a little through sleek for me. Hot but I don't know I've seen you it looks good motivation I could go that we're. Here's the question for you in if the texture is right for you cultists. Six years from now with trump he's still the president of baucus holding the line is completely tanked for whatever reason right. Does that company have to fur ever carry it in your eyes or they then sucked. Nordstrom's or argue I would think and my guess is marshalls and TJ Max would argue the same. Here it does come a point at which regardless of politics it doesn't make business sense. Does there come a point at which you will believe that or is it for ever political for year movement. Eight and if you could use for ever political. Would the president not been seen that when he winked into politics. There's going to need some push back. On businesses related to your name I don't think the push packs coming from Nordstrom's the push that may be coming from the shoppers. Nordstrom's says the numbers are down. Do I think fit that is ironic or do I think that's related to the fact that he ran for office I did do with the fact that he's running for office. I think that I absolutely. The death of north. Why are they wed they have to make these decisions and of all people Donald Trump should understand that. Decisions have to be made. Based on their bottom line why things have no argument is an additional says if your argument is that. People are not buying that line because it's political you very well be right you may very well be right they may have be. Buying it because it's political. But I don't think Nordstrom's decision. Was based on politics seven anyone I guarantee you with the Obama's daughters had a clothing line it would be promoted whether it was a top seller or not. You don't know that I doubt I doubt it I can't I don't pollute. For a short run perhaps sure our cruise was promoted very hard for a short worst not for a short time where it's somewhat linked the time. There's a reason why TJ Max and marshalls had it cold front. Right they were promoting it which you loved. Now that they're not they still locked in their liberal company according to U. I I. Businesses or any really half a lot now because. Eight the president's gonna send out a tweet whatever but be you who are solely inflexible on nests. The you're not willing to give anybody not to benefit of the doubt the benefit of good business right. Bruce is in Woburn this morning good morning Bruce. Actually am at all since. Well throughout battery. Operated so there's no fly a push guys to be very careful going all night he's very much. Yeah I I notice the old political saying look I mean if idol as the nice screen. Store and someone says only that the best sites screen. Well let it go and try that I stream and I like kemba Goldie regardless of who owns a one out. What their political views I mean now public angle shot books because they're white Melissa Cohen epic has not allowed carried by eruptions up. What better sides. You guys be very careful today it's gonna be really bad to Florence and Powell and Al that's why do you wanna political I just. I I was really because I can't it's my decision. While president Bruce suffering once that's AB UN particular annoying because your condescending and act like you're no at all. I don't know exactly why I love this cameras here this particular conversation because I don't know everything that's going on here. But what how you would view this circumstance in any other light would tell you that you would you support business as a Republican. You are instinctively wired to support business when trump says I want to remove any and all regulations that get in the way of business we all champion that because. We are for business. Yet when he business does what they say is in the best interest of their business. You are now ripping them right in telling them that this is not in their best interest. And I'm getting ripped because I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt I don't know whether it is or isn't. I have nothing to base it on. Other then your ridiculous hyperbolic overreaction. Apply to you what I think is interesting you do you do you have any idea how many designer stores like this drop on a regular big Pete do all the time. But you weren't reacting so shocked. That people are having just a guttural. Feeling about this you go one way or the other and we have no stats we have no financials to base our opinions actually the only financial iPad you do have easy and financials though which is Nordstrom's as they've had. Quickly all right business that has been suffering in the market right with the actual product. And the only the only number I have to do with the product were allegedly according to the company it was up to 41%. In 2016. To that to me says if a market brand is up 41%. It's selling somewhere. 61726668668680. Is attacks line. Persons are ovals than holding Chris good morning your WRKO. I don't wield a great thank you curse. OK couple things seem bonk his whole line like when she did her out on his opening for the Republican National Committee. Berger actually learned that sold out immediately online. She's doing fabulously Terkel like Nordstrom is an overpriced they block brick store. It is hurting. Anybody think that this does not politically at this game changer this year Sweden's state. Look what they kick it to Donald Trump when they had the protest without the delegate tie. Well be illegal throughout this being looked shocked that we eat and got a watchable the law. Anybody. Anybody. Food and Donald Trump I boy. I don't vote movie anymore it's what you want to put it in the so I didn't I don't like it ain't about what they're overrated. This is a political. Morton an ivy. Whitney you look this is all well. All of a sudden it got a boy I'd stop selling bonds is old why is this for you look at. Look at the left wing progressive socialist Communist Hollywood and Broadway but A dot. I'm completely oddity away. You know war. Bottom. But I'll read you again Nordstrom's spokesperson. Yesterday over the past year. In particularly in the last half of 2016 sales of the brand of steadily declined. To the point where he didn't make good business sense for us to continue with the line for now. So yeah I guess. If you don't believe that in you believe that sales were bustling. And they are just kowtowing to these two women that have started this you know this protest movement. Then you should boycott because they are we cowards and whatever but if you do. Who believe that. And ask anybody that works for publicly traded companies that. 89% of the time all they care about is that bottom line in making that needle move. One iota to the positive that's all they care about. Why wouldn't you believe that in this and that and let me let me for those of you who are. Angry with our stand on this let me give you an inch let me give you an inch here. You know. People are boycotting on the front not no not Nordstrom's is never said that there was any kind of issue related to that let's let's use Macy's for example or anyone ever bravery. People are boycotting. People are not coming through the door because of their and your bottom line is being hurt do you have to make a decision. This for business. So that you can get people back in that store. Now well that's why the foreign now is particularly interesting in Nordstrom's comment there which I think right for now it's. Right now what they're not telling you the reason why sales dropping but they said right we're discontinuing it for now. A couple of years from now they might go back to it. Ten years from now off of Marcus still doing this sort of thing they may come back to a whatever it is but for now right now it doesn't make good business sense for them. You can bet they what their power is way aren't here is hardly a big business let's do with the bottom line reason patriotism when you talk a chick filet if it. Chick filet is is a privately owned company that man can make decisions in heat adding that he answers. Those decisions that's his bottom line we knew owner publicly owned publicly traded company. You answer to stockholders. And whatever is keeping people out of yours store. You have to rectify. And then you have to make it right. Whether it's based on the you don't like earlier that the caller who said you'll I was a social and it doesn't matter it's social issue doesn't matter if it's a political issue doesn't matter if it's a taste issue. You are in the business of getting people in the door writing checks pulling out credit cards pulling out cash and spending money that's which are in the business to. At 203 let's see the sales reports of these so called declines pride I'm sure you know well we haven't seen them normally companies don't show you their books in order of hawkish or you're hers I'm guessing. It will tell you this 603 what was the stock a year ago what is it today. I don't know exactly but it's something like 65 to thirty years so when a stock goes from in the sixties to below forty foot below the money is happening right not all not almost. Buck is a very very small part of that a little later you buy it regardless. They're assessing everything that is causing that to happen and they are making changes. Now I would by the way Nordstrom's better be making to some other changes like because things aren't working for and I would argue I'm sure there's other designers who have been dropped in their of their shifting in their making those kinds changes we just don't know about it. Because the president didn't tweet about those come those odd designers robs in Westwood good morning. Good morning. I can't write absolutely would what all you you know.
