Delta and Bank of America abandon Trump-like 'Julius Caesar'

The Public Theater in New York City lost two sponsors Sunday due to controversy surrounding its rendition of William Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar," which includes the gory assassination of a ruler who resembles President Trump.

Delta Air Lines (DAL) and Bank of America (BAC) pulled their support following criticism on social media. The play has come under fire from Fox News and one of Trump's sons.

"No matter what your political stance may be, the graphic staging of 'Julius Caesar' at this summer's Free Shakespeare in the Park does not reflect Delta Air Lines' values," the airline said in a tweeted statement. "Their artistic and creative direction crossed the line on the standards of good taste. We have notified them of our decision to end our sponsorship as the official airline of The Public Theater effective immediately."

Yeah, that's why my business advertising doesn't show me killing a Trump like figure. It just wouldn't play well with 95% of America's counties who voted for him. You know, the 95% that voted Trump. I am so glad to see Trump's progress so far, and hope this ball keeps rolling, as I'm sure it will. God has blessed this Country, let's all use that blessing as fast as we can!
