Just don't concealed carry in there, it's not welcome.

I suppose the baristas will offer a "safe space" to those bent on violence.

I'm confused...

Will the coffee pourers get violent when they hear the name?

Or will the customers get violent and seek a safe space?

Confusing times....

Re: Starbucks 'Trump' Cup Is Causing A Lot Of Controversy


While Starbucks dislikes concealed as well as open carry, most deplorables don't mind it.

Hopefully a deplorable with a sidearm would be there looking for a Trump labeled coffee when the homocidal maniac comes in to steal, kill, and destroy.

I suppose the barista can then use the safe space to find shelter from the trauma caused by the good guy.

It is confusing....

If I did happen to go into Starbucks with my concealed carry I will do my best only to protect my life, I understand there's not a lot of jobs available and I would not want To put someone out of work.

A small cup is only a buck eighty. I'll only stop if desperate for some coffee if no other shops around as I don't like their pc stance on most things. I've spoiled myself on good coffee and can not drink gas station coffee and they do have good coffee.

I get mine at Wawa...a large for $1.79.

They don't offer a Triple, Venti, Half Sweet, Non-Fat, Caramel Macchiato, but...I don't need one either.

The Wawa CEO doesn't put politics in my coffee either....

Lemme tell bout that liberal cup'o'joe. I love it. God bless the liberals for their coffee. I'm a lumberyard, scrape the gum off the sidewalk - kind of coffee guy but LOVE the good stuff, so safe space it up.

That being said Mr/Mrs barista, "shut up, no, it's not African American coffee... I want it black... It's a freaking description of the way I want my coffee. Oh puh-leeze that is not offensive. How is coffee racist?"

"I wonder how they would have reacted if I asked for a mulatto instead of gelatto?"

I'm normally a black coffee drinker but those milkshake's are amazing. I don't really like sweet stuff either and can't bring myself to order whatever it is my wife orders but it's damn good and she'll sometimes surprise me with one when she comes home from dropping the kids off at school. Not sure what it is, venti white chocolate something.

It's more like a hot chocolate than a coffee. If I go there I just get coffee and 20 questions with it. Who knew there were so many different ways to get a black freaggin coffee.

Starbucks chars their beans to mask the flavor and then sells it as gourmet. But it works so who am I?

I don't think they as a corporation have a problem with concealed carry, it's the open carry guys that made a show of it and got the controversy going. If it's concealed, who knows anyway?
