As Twitchy reported, Soledad O’Brien was displeased with Jack for being in any way supportive of Chick fil A … because you know, their BACKGROUND. And like any good progressive man, Jack totally caved under pressure.
Seems they forgot about who the popular chicken sandwich chain really is and what they stand for … but we haven’t.
Hey @SoledadOBrien & @Jack — since we’re talking about @ChickfilA’s “background”, I’m reminded of their response following the Orlando Pulse Nightclub attack in June 2016, when they reversed company policy & opened on Sunday to cook food for blood donors.https://t.co/OsnyLR3RAH

From USA Today:
Some Chick fil A employees in Orlando showed up for work on Sunday, departing from the normal hours the fast food chain keeps in order to prepare food for first responders and people donating blood to victims of the shooting at gay nightclub Pulse.
The food donations are another sign of how far the company has come in re-crafting its image after CEO Dan Cathy incited customers when he spoke out against gay marriage in 2012, leading to protests at stores.
Throughout its 70-year history, Chick fil A has maintained a policy of staying closed on Sundays, a decision founder Truett Cathy made so that employees “would have an opportunity to rest, spend time with family and friends, and worship if they choose to do so,” according to the company website.
But Chick fil A says it has bent the rules a handful of times in order to help out with food donations for “communities in need,” including this past weekend. Chick fil A Lee Vista, a store about a 20 minute drive from Pulse, posted several photos on its Facebook page Sunday of employees delivering food to volunteers. The store itself was not open to the public.
And when the Atlanta airport lost power. Didn't hear anything about any gay travelers not being offered a sandwich. https://t.co/tCeYb3omrq

Pretty sure Jack and Soledad would rather people didn’t get blood than have CFA have anything to do with it.

The degree to which people go out of their way to hate @ChickfilA borders on the insane.
