Thank You, President Trump! Chick-fil-A Is Now America's Third-Largest Restaurant Chain

How's that boycott going?

May 8, 2019

In the two years since Donald J. Trump was sworn in as president, the United States of America has achieved unsurpassed greatness in almost every imaginable category. The economy is surging. Tiger Woods is a Masters champion again, after ending his "Obama drought" on the PGA Tour. Mankind continues to enjoy unprecedented dominance over Earth's inferior species. And now, thanks to booming sales, Chick-fil-A has become the third-largest restaurant chain in the United States, behind Starbucks and McDonalds.

Chick-fil-A, which has been the target of a left-wing boycott campaign due to the problematic socially conservative views of its founder, has absolutely dominated the chicken market over the past decade. The chain's sale have tripled, and its U.S. market share among chicken-centric restaurants has increased from 18 percent in 2009 to 33 percent, while its chief competitor, Kentucky Fried Chicken, has seen its market share fall from 29 percent to 15 percent over the same period. That's what winning looks like. Congrats on the boycott, libs!

President Trump, a chief proponent of the concept of winning, deserves much of the credit for the delicious chicken restaurant's success. He did not flinch in the wake of online outrage, for example, over his decision to serve scrumptious Chick-fil-A sandwiches to the members of the North Dakota State University football team, which had recently won a record seventh FCS college football national championship. Thanks to the historic economic prosperity Trump has graciously bestowed on the American people, they have more money in their wallets to spend on mouth-watering chicken morsels.

The outraged left's efforts to punish Chick-fil-A have not only failed, they are also starting to wear a bit thin among sympathetic Democrats. South Bend Mayor Pete Buttgieg, for example, is trying to become the first openly gay candidate in history to win a major party nomination. But he's not necessarily sold on the "Boycott Chick-fil-A" movement. In an interview with BuzzFeed in March, Buttigieg said that while he didn't approve of Chick-fil-A politics, he argued that Americans "should primarily deal with political issues in the political arena," and expressed concern that efforts to target problematic corporations could devolve into "sanctimonious" "virtue signaling."
