Delta Airlines was among the companies that caved to progressive pressure and ended their affiliation with the NRA. A new report about Delta has Brit Hume making a prediction:
I suspect Delta will come to regret it ever wandered into this swamp. https://t.co/enzsnTobbB

It’s already appearing that way:
NEW: "We are in the process of a review to end group discounts for any group of a politically divisive nature," Delta CEO Ed Bastian says following political repercussions in company's home state of Georgia for cutting ties with NRA. https://t.co/TNd3qqDCSH pic.twitter.com/5SvoY1P3sA

Good luck with all that, Delta!
Who defines politically divisive? This is actually a horrid remark. They are judge and jury now?

Perhaps Delta should just focus on oh I don’t know…flying planes. Either provide group discounts to all groups or to no groups but they shouldn’t sit there and pick and choose

They could have just stayed pat. They had a knee jerk reaction and now want to try and dial it back.

Isn't it ironic that Delta became a politically divisive group when they decided to end discounts for decisive groups. No more cheap seats for Delta workers.
