In their unending quest for ideological purity, Donald Trump fans still drunk with the joy of victory have found a new foe, namely Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, who happened to endorse Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election.
The Hill details a small movement of Trumpkins who ask Starbucks baristas to write “Trump” on drink orders, an idea inspired by a viral video showing a Trump fan losing his sh*t in a Starbucks earlier this week after he experienced what he claimed to be “anti-white discrimination.”
1) Go to Starbucks & tell them your name is Trump

As the trending hashtag #TrumpCup emerged, mockery ensued, mainly because the form of protest still involves giving Starbucks money.

"Our #TrumpCup boycott was a success. Now what?"
"We protest gay marriage by blowing guys at a truck stop glory hole all day?"

Trump supporter logic:
1) #BoycottHamilton, which is sold out through next November
2) protest Starbucks by buying their coffee #TrumpCup

If all the Trumpsters use the same name at Starbucks they'll get their orders mixed up. They did not think this through #TrumpCup
