Take Three Guesses Who Starbucks Chairman Blames For ‘Racist Behavior’ in His Stores

You’ll only need one.

On Tuesday, Starbucks decided they were going to prove their “wokeness” by shutting down 8,000 stores for several hours to give “racial bias training” to all of its employees. This, of course, is their response to several controversial incidents that have happened at stores around the country.

Howard Schultz, chief chairman of Starbucks, recently sat down with CNN and pointed the finger for these incidents at President Donald Trump, saying that his rhetoric and behavior has given people a license to act in racist ways.

Is anyone really surprised by this?

The CNN anchor asked Schultz if the rhetoric from the White House was “opening the door to increased overt racist behavior,” to which Shultz responded, in part, “I think the totality of the issue is beyond the White House.”

The anchor asked again, “Has President Trump’s rhetoric, personally, on race exacerbated racism in America?”

“On a personal level, it probably has given license to people to feel as if they can emulate and copy the kind of behavior and language that comes out of this administration,” Schultz said. He continued, “The racial divide and the inequities that exist between people of color and Caucasians in America is a problem that has existed for quite some time…”

Schultz was then asked what the Trump administration could do to help “close the divide.”

Schultz said, “Put humanity in the center of our conversation, whether it’s immigration, whether it’s trade — all of these things have such rhetoric to [them], and the political class is not helping.”

It’s funny that Schultz is blaming President Trump for all of the racial division in America, when the reality of the situation is, this was a problem he inherited after being elected.

Former President Barack Obama is the one mostly responsible for the heightened tension and hatred toward police officers that exists in this country right now, helping to promote division with many of his policies and speeches.

His very ideology, which was put front and center during his administration, created this mess. Yet no one wants to accept that reality.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
