McDonald’s shocked their 3.3 million followers yesterday by changing things up a little. Instead of continuing to joyfully revel in ‘Shamrock Season,’ they took a HARD LINE on President Trump.
They tweeted, “[Donald Trump], you are actually a disgusting excuse of a President, and we would love to have Barack Obama back…also, you have tiny hands.”
Obviously, anti-Trump Tweets aren’t part of McDonald’s new ad campaign, so something wasn’t right.
They claim that their account was hacked.
Twitter notified us that our account was compromised. We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this.

Trump hasn’t commented, although he might at some point, because this is his home turf. He’s a HUGE fan of McDonald’s…he’s even done commercials for them.
Others aren’t so sure. Some people are boycotting McDonald’s over this, claiming they’ll eat elsewhere until Trump gets more of an apology.
