If there is one thing I cannot stand, it is the abuse of power by business leaders. And that is exactly what the CEO of Pepsi is doing right now.
Rather, they are continuing the attacks on President-Elect Trump. Of note is Pepsico CEO Indra Nooyi who is still wallowing in the infamous Access Hollywood video that made Trump look so bad. “How dare you talk about women that way!” she exclaimed this week as reported by Freedom Daily.
When will the Nooyis of the world fall in line? The game is over. Trump won fair and square. Case closed.
Not for Nooyi. “The first thing that we all have to do is to assure everyone living in the United States that you are safe,” she said. In other words, she is acknowledging that fears about safety are rational and need to be addressed. What a crook. She is purposefully stirring the pot.
She wants to talk about safety? Maybe she should start with the overall health of people who consume her own products – like Fritos or Doritos. Or, for those that drink Pepsi products. Since when are obesity and diabetes considered safe?
Shame on her. No woman has benefited more from the fairness and equity of the United States than she has. Born in India, she has become one of the most powerful women in the world, by any measure, and is raking in some $20 million per year. Yet women in this country need her reassurance that they are safe?
Of the election she went on to say “The real issues that are facing the country, we never talked about.” Issues like what? Well, she’s talking about things like climate change, bathroom bills and birth control. Really?
The fact is that real issues were not only talked about, but voted upon – substantial issues like the economy, immigration, and national security. Losing doesn’t mean your issues weren’t addressed, it just means they were addressed in a way you may not have liked.
Trump, by the way, has been quite Presidential with his win. He has shown appropriate respect for Obama and the time and work that he has offered to America. He also expressed respect for Clinton’s hard-fought campaign.
You see, Ms. Nooyi, the election is over. It’s time to dust off your shoes and move on. You don’t need to praise President-Elect Trump by any means – it’s still a free country! But, you ought to consider showing a little respect, if not for Trump, for the Office.
For me, I am boycotting Pepsico products – Pepsi, Frito Lay, Tropicana, Gatorade and Quaker Oats. Viva Coca Cola!
