When Joe Biden’s team approached the Crumb and Get It Cookie Company about hosting the vice president and his entourage, owner Chris McMurray respectfully declined. The three-month old Radford, Va., bakery could use the press, but when McMurray was asked why he refused Uncle Joe’s visit, he replied, “Very simply, ‘you didn’t build that.’”


Turns out, small business owners don’t like being told, “You didn’t bake that.” Who could have seen that coming?

The Secret Service reportedly appreciated McMurray’s bold stand.

Here’s the back story, we’re told that shortly after Crumb and Get It told Biden’s advance people ‘no’ — the secret service walked in and told Chris McMurray ”Thanks for standing up and saying ‘no’ — then they bought a whole bunch of cookies and cupcakes.

Naturally the right side of the Twittersphere is firmly on Team Crumb and Get It. Many tweeted support for the bakery and suggested that others patronize the fledgling business.





Great suggestion for the GOP:

If you’d like to thank Crumb and Get It’s owner for sticking to his principles, you can find him on Twitter at @pastorchrismc.


Sooper Mexican suggests other ways you can support Crumb and Get It.

Tell Chris you appreciate him sticking up to Joe Biden! “Like” his Facebook page!!

And if you or someone you know is near Radford, Virginia, make sure to drop by and buy a cookie for America! They’re located at 1154 East Main Street, Radford, VA.

Hundreds of Facebook users have already taken Sooper’s suggestion.

How ’bout we add a few thousand more likes?


Congrats to Crumb and Get It for a very successful day.

Crumb and Get It” in Radford had to shut down at 1:15 p.m. Thursday because they ran out of food.

Update: A U.S. Secret Service spokesman denies that any Secret Service personnel thanked McMurray for saying “no” to the vice president’s visit.

    Does this business take online orders? Anyone know? I would love to be able to support the owners by purchasing their products and have them frozen and shipped to me.

    • Orangeone

      I don’t Tweet but Breitbart bloggers, including me, have emailed and called to inquire. I’d post back here if I find they do!

      See my post above with a great suggestion from a Breitbart poster! Call and order yummies and have them delivered to the VA center.

    • BigMamaTEA

      They have a website. I signed up for e-mail promotions today and commented that when they figure out how to ship out of state I’ll be their first customer.

  • Matt Weeks

    I’m in New Jersey, but I’ll be sure to keep an eye on them in case they start taking online orders or selling merchandising.

    Would be great if Chik-Fil-A added Crumb and Get It cookies etc to their dessert menu…

  • lsieu

    I don’t understand why your headline reads that conservatives are urging a boycott when it’s obvious that they are happy that the bakery snubbed Biden?!? Can’t you fix your headline? It’s MISLEADING!

    • Tam_from_Michigan

      It says ‘buy’cott. It is just a little play on words.

    • http://www.facebook.com/chrissie.barksdale Chrissie Queensberry Barksdale

      I agree, it’s misleading. Fix the headline please! Chick fil a the problem or something!

  • MrCrashHappy

    How about a nice round of applause for those Secret Service agents? I love those guys.

    • TundraThunder

      I remember reading the Obamas don’t particularly like the Secret Service, but then Hillary doesn’t either, and Bill liked them because they’d get him fast food.

        and women…sorry but true

  • http://www.nleomf.org/officers/ FlatFoot

    Look at their actual OPEN hours:

    store hours:
    Monday-Wednesday: 10a-10p
    Thursday-Saturday: 10a-11p
    Sunday: Closed

    Working 12 and 13 hours a day — and definitely even working behind the scenes on that one day a week they’re closed. Plus, that does not even include the every-single-day hours of baking their goods, pre-open prep and the post-open cleanup/closing — nor the business operating necessities like book-keeping, paying the bills, interviewing and hiring employees, payroll, ordering and maintaining supplies, dealing with customers considering catering, attending to paying the taxes and other Government mandated employer financial responsibilities — then also trying to have a life and being with your family and friends somewhere between all of that.

    But, hey, the Leader of this so-called ‘Free Country’ and the so-called ‘Free World’ boldly and proudly proclaims: YOU DIDN’T BUILD THAT — SOMEBODY ELSE MADE THAT HAPPEN.

    No wonder they told mentally dysfunctional and morally bankrupt old Uncle Greazy Joe to sod off. Kudo’s to the Secret Service agents too — if that part’s actually true.

    If they shipped outside of their local area I’d buycott from them right now.

    • hiway280z

      They built it and are working hard to keep it. Now the Obama thugs will use the I.R.S. to try to put them out of business. That is how they operate. Remember Joe the plumber ? Ask a question Obama didn’t like and immediately the I.R.S. was after him and made big headlines he owed money which he was paying off for his current tax .I don’t want thugs running our country that as they say reward your friends and punish your enemy. Then make it plain you either agree or your the enemy.

    • Lee McLaurin

      You all are nothing but teabagging liars. You know EXACTLY what Obama was saying when he said you didn’t build that.

      • http://www.nleomf.org/officers/ FlatFoot

        Yeah. Liars. Right.

        Even though Preezy of the United Steezy Barack Hussein Obama plainly and unequivocally stated to American business owners across the entire country from sea to shining sea, “You didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen” — it’s a lie that he said it — so don’t quote him on that.

        But on the bright side — at least your kool-aid guzzling slapdick troglodyte homunculus self didn’t claim racism, too. Kudos.

        Unfortunately — for you — you’ll wallowing in your own self-pity come November 7th and forever after. Mmmmm — gobs and gobs of yummy tasty juicy schadenfreude are in store for you and your entire reprobate ilk, cupcake. I can hardly wait.

    Why is the title “Conservatives Urge Boycott” of Crumb and Get It? Conservatives aren’t boycotting, they’re SUPPORTING.

    Heh. I just called the store to leave a message of support, only to be informed that the message box was full.

    • hiway280z

      I e mailed them for standing up for their beliefs.

      • BeautifulAmerica

        I did too

        • hiway280z

          good. They need to know many support them.

    It’s working! Right Scoop has an update that the shop ran out of food today!
    Credit to Suzibasterd on Breitbart: If you want to support this guy, call and order cookies for delivery to the VA Veteran’s Care Center. Their number is 540.838.2288 and while they don’t ship, apparently they will deliver!!
    Great idea, support this business owner and our veterans!

    • http://www.facebook.com/dewey.fisher.5 Dewey Fisher

      I sent them a message on fb offering to buy $100 worth of product they could hand out for free to their walk in customers. Haven’t heard back. I tried calling them tnis morning, but their voicemail was already full. I wonder how many of those messages are threats from Obamabots.

      • Orangeone

    I’m in the next county over, but Radford and Christiansburg are where we go when we go to the “big city.” We were through there yesterday and missed the chaos of Biden’s visit in Radford, but got caught in some at the Cburg bypass on Rt 460.

    So we saw the story on local news this morning. I had to go to the doctor and we decided to stop there along the way. It was packed and we didn’t have time or would have missed my appt. Will be going there next time in town.

    Thought I’d have a “scoop” for Michelle, but she was already on this story!

  • billmc972

    They had so much business today they ran out of food by 1:15pm. They only make local deliveries so I suggest that you order cookies and send them to the Virginia Veterans Care Center, 4550 Shenandoah Ave Roanoke Va 24017. Not only is it a bump for the business but also gives to our injured military people. HUUU Ragh

    • hiway280z

      great idea.

  • Bono

    Gee, I wish someone would urge a buycott of my book… then I wouldn’t be so poor! I have some Chick-Fil-A and could “virtually” snub Biden. LOL

  • hiway280z

    Decent people do not boycott or try to put some one out of business because they do not agree with your political views.

    • EmptyJay

      As was pointed out, it’s BUYcott. As in BUY up everything they make. I had to reread it 3 times.

      • hiway280z

        I saw that after I posted. The comment is still ok I made. ha ha funny how the brain works, most saw boycot instead of buy. Funny thing is I wondered why conservatives would call for boycot. LOL

    • BeautifulAmerica

      And wouldn’t h–ll be a better place for an Obamao visit?

      • hiway280z

        no not to visit. It is where he came from and he should go back and stay.

    Love th story. However I’m a little dubious of the Secret Service part of it…

  • MikeD0722

    love stories like this one. As I was reading it I noticed that the
    business is located in Radford, VA. By sheer coincidence, my wife and I
    have a trip planned later this year that will take us right through the
    town of Radford. So I checked out the guy’s website and they had a
    “Contact Us” page and I wrote to congratulate him for standing up for
    his beliefs and not welcoming our joke of a VP Joe “Foot in Mouth” Biden
    to his store. As a small business owner myself, I agreed with his
    statement and I too BUILT IT MYSELF from my own ideas and my own
    capital. I asked him to recommend a restaurant near his store where my
    wife and I can have dinner and said that we’d be in to buy some cookies
    to bring to our friends in Marietta, GA (plus a few for the ride of
    course!) We small business owners need to stick up for each other. I
    will post some pictures on Facebook at his store.

    “Although they could use the publicity…” I think they’ve gotten more positive publicity for NOT allowing Bifoon the photo op than if he had been there.
