This is beyond ridiculous. Business Insider is taking shots at Romney and Romney’s Dad because of a card George Romney received from Ray Kroc.
Already seen as a wealthy elite, Mitt Romney probably shouldn’t brag about the special privelege (SIC) granted to his dad by Ray Kroc himself.
But that’s what he did at a Chicago fundraiser, according to ABC News’ Amy Walter and Emily Friedman:
“You know how boys liked to go through their dad’s top drawer, just to sort of see what he has in there, maybe find an old coin he might not miss or whatever, ” Romney told a group of donors at a Chicago fundraiser this afternoon.
“I found a little paper card, a little pink card, and it said this entitles George W. Romney to a lifetime of a hamburger, a shake and French fries at McDonald’s. It was signed by the hand of Ray Kroc. My dad had done a little training lesson or whatever for McDonald’s when there was just a handful of restaurants and I saw this thing and was like, ‘This is a gold mine, Dad! What are you doing?’ So I had it laminated. My dad, as you know, would go almost every day to a McDonald’s restaurant and get either a hamburger or a fish filet sandwich. And he would present this little card and of course the person behind the counter would look and say, ‘Well, what is that?’ They’d never seen something like that, but he said it was never turned down. They always honored it.”
Eating McDonald’s every day actually makes his dad relatable (SIC)—but free McDonald’s not so much.
Look at the fat bastard. He ate McDonald’s EVERY DAY, and his life was predictably cut short as a result of eating that POISON. He died at 88.
Yep. George Romney obviously is responsible for putting McDonald’s at the brink of bankruptcy with his free burgers.
Let’s see, hamburger, shake and fries… let’s call it 5 bucks a day average. Let’s say he went every day for 25 years that’s around $45,000 worth of food.
Uh, didn’t the story say George helped out Kroc when he only had a handful of restaurants? I’m pretty sure Kroc is well ahead of the game.
I have a lifetime Ben and Jerry’s card. True. I told them early on that they should become pot-bellied filthy-looking dirtbags and pretend to be leftists in order to keep other filthy leftist dirtbags from targeting them as evil capitalists. They reward me every day with a free scoop, which I would donate to a homeless guy, except it would be frowned upon by Michael Bloomberg… you know, with ice cream having all that poisonous fat and sugar.
