Scott Baio, well known for being an outspoken Conservative in C-list Hollywood, has voiced his undying support and love for Ivanka Trump’s product line after Nordstrom made the decision to pull her products citing poor performance.
Baio tweeted a photo of his Nordstrom rewards summary revealing the Baios spent $30,062.16 in 2016 on Nordstrom products. In the tweet, he also tagged Ivanka Trump, President Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, and his wife Renee Baio. It appears that Baio felt that Nordstrom pulling Ivanka’s products was in some way as terrible as the murder of millions of Jewish men and women during the Holocaust, considering he used the anti-Holocaust slogan, “Never again.”
Here’s the controversial tweet:
‘Dear @Nordstrom NEVER AGAIN! @IvankaTrump @realDonaldTrump @DonaldJTrumpJr @EricTrump @MrsScottBaio’
Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel wrote about the slogan:
‘”Never again” becomes more than a slogan: It’s a prayer, a promise, a vow. There will never again be hatred, people say. Never again jail and torture. Never again the suffering of innocent people, or the shooting of starving, frightened, terrified children. And never again the glorification of base, ugly, dark violence. It’s a prayer.’
Sadly, the late Wiesel was wrong. There is still plenty of suffering, shootings, terrified children, and glorification of dark violence throughout the world. Indeed, lovers of Trump will surely suffer the absence of Ivanka’s clothing and product lines, which are actually fairly ugly and not fashionable. It must feel like the heat of Auschwitz ovens. Perhaps it feels like you’re suffocating in a gas chamber. Perhaps facing the Trump-less clothing racks is like facing a Nazi firing squad. It hurts.
Though most of the Twitter responses seemed to be individuals who are confused and believe Baio is actually famous, some users called Baio out:
‘@ScottBaio @MrsScottBaio Imagine the good you could do in the world with $30K instead of wardrobing your ego.’
‘@ScottBaio @Nordstrom Wow, I can’t believe people actually spend over 30,000 a year on shopping!!! That’s insane!! #proudtobemiddleclass’
‘@ScottBaio @Nordstrom @IvankaTrump @realDonaldTrump @DonaldJTrumpJr @EricTrump @MrsScottBaio You folks really speak to middle America. Sad’
