Evangelicals’ favorite president Donald Trump celebrated Easter the way you’d expect a good “christian” to: by whining about criticism toward Georgia’s voter suppression law.

The ex-president had called for a boycott of Major League Baseball on Friday, and he widened that directive over the weekend to include half a dozen companies that expressed disapproval of the legislation, including Coca-Cola, Delta, ViacomCBS, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Cisco, UPS, and Merck.

“For years the Radical Left Democrats have played dirty by boycotting products when anything from that company is done or stated in a way that offends them. Now they are going big time with WOKE CANCEL CULTURE and our sacred elections,” wrote Trump in a statement Saturday stoking the fires of the cultural and political war over Georgia’s restrictive new voting law.

“It is finally time for Republicans and Conservatives to fight back...Boycott Major League Baseball, Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, JPMorgan Chase, ViacomCBS, Citigroup, Cisco, UPS, and Merck. Don’t go back to their products until they relent," he contined.

“They rigged and stole our 2020 Presidential Election, which we won by a landslide, and then, on top of that, boycott and scare companies to submission. Never submit, never give up! The Radical Left will destroy our Country if we let them. We will not become a Socialst Nation. Happy Easter!” he concluded.

"It's interesting that he has such strong feelings about cancel culture," said Ana Kasparian reacting to Trump's Easter rant. "Because conservatives also get super whiny when a private company like Nike for instance does something that they don't like, like include Colin Kapernick in one of their advertising campaigns," she explained, showing a video of conservatives burning Nike shoes.

"Everything is theatre, everything is culture wars, everything is BS. There are legitimate concerns over the fact that Georgia passed restrictive voter laws that limits voting for a lot of poor and black people. And their response to it is, ‘Okay, how can we somehow twist this into a culture war issue; when at the heart of it is our democratic process,"' said Kasparian.

Co-host Francesca Fiorentini agreed, saying "just the Colin Kaepernick stuff reminds you how removed from the issue this all is. It’s not about Kaepernick, it's not about kneeling. It's about the systemic violence against black people in this country that feels more like a feature than a bug of the policing system."

"Remember the whole point of the voter suppression laws that just passed in Georgia is to cancel the Secretary of State because he did not go along with the demands of the GOP," pointed out Kasparian while also saying that Donald Trump himself drinks Diet Coke when he's so intent on cancelling them.
