What does it say about our current state of affairs when a commercial celebrating the American dream is seen as a protest against the President? We now live in a country where there are people on both sides of the political spectrum that want to stifle any form of expression that can be interpreted as promoting the other’s personal viewpoint.  I get the displeasure for a singer performing at a concert or the Super Bowl and expressing his or her political views, but a beer company with a commercial telling a story of how their founder got to America is offensive?  Really?  The fact that the singer also has a constitutional right to speak up isn’t even the point. Nor is the fact that those who choose to boycott Budweiser are also in their rights to do so.  The point is that people really need to lighten up.  Tom Brady is allowed to be friends with Donald Trump and Budweiser can make a commercial celebrating immigrants in America.  Neither will destroy every principal you believe in or the very fabric of society, and if you think it will, take a step back, take a deep breath and think about it. If you don’t see how little sense it makes after that, I suggest seeking therapy.
