Default Reebok mocks Trump in poster — then it backfires when comedian points out company’s s

If I had a nickel for every time libs displayed their hypocrisy....

http://www.theblaze.com/news/2017/07...uble-standard/

Athletic wear company Reebok used their Twitter account to scathingly mock President Donald Trump on Friday, taking a shot at the president for comments he made to France’s first lady on Friday.

Trump made headlines Friday during his visit to Paris, France, on Bastille Day. Trump and first lady Melania Trump were meeting with newly elected French President Emmanuel Macron and French first lady Brigitte Macron. The duo toured museums and participated in Bastille Day celebrations together.

After the Trumps and Macrons finished their visit of museums at Les Invalides, a Facebook video posted by the French government caught Trump telling Brigitte that she’s “in such good shape” and “beautiful,” according to the New York Times.

Trump was heavily criticized for the comment after it went viral, the Guardian reports.

That comment is what Reebok seized on.

On Friday afternoon, they posted an image to their Twitter account that appeared to be a flow chart of events detailing when it’s appropriate to use the phrase that Trump used when describing Brigitte.

“When is it appropriate to say: You’re in such good shape…beautiful,” the poster asks. The poster then gives six scenarios — including the one Trump was in on Friday when he made the comments — and asks if the phrase is appropriate to use in those scenarios.

Not surprisingly, the poster instructs that it’s not appropriate to use the phrase when “you are a world leader greeting the spouse of a head of state.” The only scenario it does instruct is appropriate to use the phrase is when you just discover a “forgotten action figure from your youth” that is “unscathed after decades in your parents’ basement.”

The poster was widely shared and appreciated. As of Sunday evening, it has accumulated more than 40,000 retweets and nearly 70,000 “likes.”

But just as quickly as the tweet went viral, Reebok was being exposed for an apparent double standard.

Comedian Jim Norton replied to Reebok’s tweet with a Reebok ad image that features a scantily-clad woman. He wrote: “Thank you, @Reebok, for your virtuous message about when it’s appropriate to complement a woman’s shape.”

Of course, the point of Norton’s tweet was that Reebok was being hypocritical with their criticism of Trump’s comments — which many critics said were sexist — while simultaneously promoting ads that feature partially nude women.

Indeed, many athletic brands like Reebox typically use photoshopped pictures of athletes wearing minimal amounts of clothing to advertise their products, all under the mantra that “sex sells.” But it’s a bit difficult to criticize someone for allegedly objectifying women when your ad department featured nearly nude women in ads.

It's always good to show the hypocrisy of the moronic far Left

Not really, just pointing out there is indeed a very moronic right, and the hypocrisy is rich on the right.

Seems that is the entire reason.

Melania is in trouble for wearing "feminine" clothing.
Trump is in trouble for noticing a woman's beauty.

And the left seizes the opportunity to call it fetidly sexist.???

Yet, most women who work hard to look good, appreciate being "noticed."

Hypocrisy? No

Internecine, yes.

When it comes to being selectively sexist, progressives have a very malleable standard of political convenience. The left, who have supported the Clinton's, Kennedy's, Joe Biden, Gary Hart, and Anthony Weiner, should work on their message.

When have Melania (or Ivanka for that matter) been in trouble for wearing feminine clothing?
Trump loves women, that's for sure! - just like Bill, Joe and Teddy did.. to the point of not being able to know what is appropriate.

Since I am a deplorable, I don't know but I thought it was acceptable in French culture or even encouraged to compliment a women on her appearance. Somehow the self declared sophisticated Trump critics overlooked cultural differences to preach self righteous blather condemning Trump.

We are not allowed to notice that women's bikinis on French beaches would get the wearer arrested in most US beaches but we should condemn Trump for "objectifying" the French PM's wife with a compliment deemed unacceptable by Left wing censors.
