Did she have any idea it would backfire like this?
Mila Kunis doesn’t like Republican politics. Especially their position on protecting in-utero life.
So she thought it would be funny to ‘punk’ the Vice President to get her point across.
Mila Kunis made a public announcement that she would make a monthly donation — in Vice President Pence’s name — to Planned Parenthood.
It’s the ‘in Pence’s name’ bit that people are reacting to.
The Left wanted everything to be political. Well, be careful what you wish for.
(In real life too, suddenly she stopped laughing. But we’ll get to that in a moment.)
Planned Parenthood has actively called upon donors to make donations in Pence’s name, meaning he gets a certificate every time it is done. Hundreds of thousands have done so. Which means, presumably, they are paying for paper, envelopes, and postage on thousands of certificates… certificates that he would pay some staffer to sift through and shred.
But because Ms. Kunis made such a point of PUBLICIZING her political act of defiance, people took notice after she bragged about it on Conan’s show.
You know she knows where this is going. She even announces ‘this is where a lot of hate mail comes my way’ and prefaces it to the audience with ‘I apologize if I am offending anybody’. Here’s what she said.
I apologize if I’m offending anybody. It’s not so much a prank as much as I disagreed with some of the stuff that Pence was doing and was trying to do. And so as a reminder that there are women out there in the world that may or may not agree with his platform, I put him on a list of recurring donations that are made in his name to Planned Parenthood.
Every month, to his office, he gets a little letter that says like, “An anonymous donation has been made in your name.” I don’t look at it as a prank, this is like, I strongly disagree, and this is my little way of doing it. It’s a peaceful protest.
If you have to begin like that… some part of you knows that you’re stepping out into a ‘hold my beer’ kind of a decision. Or, in this case, something stronger.
This Jim Beam spokesperson didn’t stop and think about what her public politics could do to her Branding.
Would you believe that a lot of Republicans and Pro-Lifers enjoy Jim Beam? (Or did, anyway?) Shocking, eh? She might have given that some thought, especially if she’s noticed what’s going on with the NFL and ESPN.
You might think that, whatever her personal convictions, someone whose paycheck depends on her ability to influence the public would think twice before becoming publicly partisan.
Here’s a taste of the blowback.
Didn't realize Jim beam hired a spokesperson who supports abortion until now.https://t.co/BQzjO0MvvH

So basically you want us to buy your product from a spokes person who harasses vice president of United States? No thanks #BoycottJimbeam

This one was pretty clever, aside from the typo.
Since Mila Kunis is Ukrainian, does this mean that Jim Bean is ALSO colluding with a Ukrainian to spread lies about our Vice President?????

Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
This is a badass shirt, but guys aren’t the only ones that want to shout out THIS message.
Is it just me, or is Hillary Clinton mental? In her recent, horrendous book, she blamed everyone from the moon and back for her loss in the 2016 Presidential election. She blamed Trump, hard-working Americans, sexism, self-hating women, news outlets, the ones that aren’t full of leftists, voter suppression, Russia, her own campaign staff, the DNC, campaign finance laws, the Electoral College and more. Crazy how she forgot the part that she’s a liar, she’s mental, and no one likes her.
So, rock on without her America, and get this fantastically hilarious shirt, which proclaims just how mental Hillary Clinton really is today!
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
