Drink More Bud!

Donald Trump's supporters are getting their knickers in a terrible twist over retailers choosing no longer to stock his daughter Ivanka's product range in their stores.

So much so that the President himself demeaned his office by tweeting support followed by his top Counselor, Kellyanne Conway, appearing on Fox News where this public servant urged viewers to go out and buy Ivanka's goods.

At the same time, Trump supporters are calling on people to boycott Budweiser beer for having the temerity to point out that America is a land of immigrants, a story they told to great effect with the advert for Super Bowl 2017.

Donald Trump supporters call for Budweiser boycott following pro-immigration Super Bowl advert

'You've managed to piss off middle America'

Budweiser gets patriotic. Budweiser

Following Donald Trump’s executive order stopping persons from seven predominantly-Muslim countries from entering the United States, tensions are high around the world.

Extraordinarily, Budweiser released one of the most perfectly-timed adverts in recent memory: a one-minute clip telling the tale of co-founder Adolphus Busch’s travels to America.

Titled “Born the Hard Way,” the incredible looking 60-send clip focusses on the German man’s journey in 1857, with people telling him “You’re not wanted here, go back home!” after landing on American soil.

The makers of Budweiser (Anheuser-Busch) have produced a timely advert for Sunday's Super Bowl 2017 which promotes traditional American values around support for new immigrants to the 'land of the free and the brave'.

The commercial shows a young German Adolphus Busch arriving in America and being met with a hostile reception until he settles in St Louis where he meets Eberhard Anheuser with who he establishes the famous brewing company which makes Budweiser beer.
